Brainchild of Naresh Ravindranath, who spent two decades in an unrelated industry, and lived between Dubai, Hong Kong and Mumbai. He finally decided to follow his long time passion and dream. Ravindranath moved to Goa during the pandemic and worked on his vision which came to fruition on the 28 th of Jan 2023 when he opened the doors to his clothing store in Assagao.
This store is one of a kind as it is the only store in Goa exclusively for men. The products found here are shirts, t-shirts, shorts and caps, and more varieties that will be released in the near future. Ravindranath always had a great fashion sense and a personality that is bold, vibrant, loud and wild; which is clearly reflected in all the clothes that he designs. Each design is repeated only 15 times so rest assured there’s a low chance of bumping into someone in the same fit as you, which is also part of his mission to create something that is unique when
compared to most existing labels for men’s wear.
The fabric used is mostly cotton and linen, which is sourced from different parts of India and is perfect for the weather in Goa, with a style that works for a brunch party, a sundowner
event or an evening get together. Ravindranath also played a role in the interior design of the store which goes to say how much heart and effort he has put into NAD, maintaining the modest, Goan house look with a touch of modern design. The store opening was a great event, indeed. There was music, drinks and some fantastic finger food along with many supporters and friends who enthusiastically attended the event. You can find their store in Assagao, right next to Mustard Café and is most definitely a great option for the men to get their swag on.
