"Only in America" is a new fashion and lifestyle visionary brand birthed in the summer of July 2012 when creator Kevin "Trix'" Bent was stuck between a rock and a hard place with no where to go. Kevin was incarcerated, feeling like the world had turned their back on him, with only a handful of friends that kept in contact. The struggle to keep sane became a daily task and in this time Kevin began to reflect on one of his true passions: fashion.

Kevin states that, 'Through the difficult adversities I kept a positive mindset and created my clothing line 'Only In America' for people of all cultures and individuals who feel "incarcerated" in their own mindset. Whether it's mentally or physically, when you remain positive through the turmoil you can have everything you dream of.
