NBZ Apparel International

Live life with No BoundarieZ!

NBZ Apparel International is an Ohio-based apparel maker and online clothing retailer which serves customers in the United States and around the world.  As a social good company, we are committed to making a life-changing difference in the lives of disabled veterans, amputees, stroke victims, seniors, as well as adults and children with disabilities such as Down syndrome, autism, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy, ALS, and more, by providing resources and adaptive clothing options.

Our Downs Designs® and NBZ (No Buttons Zipperless) pants have been featured at the White House and have received highly positive press coverage from CNN, CBS, ABC, Fox, AOL, Staples, Huffington Post, and 75 news media worldwide.  Our adaptive clothing brands are worn by adults and children in 10 countries and NBZ Apparel is a strong supporter of America’s veterans.  We are committed to donating our adaptive clothing for the disabled to wounded veterans at VA hospitals through an affiliated non-profit organization.

What We Believe

Dignity.  Confidence.  Independence.

These words are what has motivated us to create a line of high quality, fashionable, adaptive clothes for disabled veterans, stroke recovery, and people with disabilities such as Down syndrome, Parkinson’s, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injuries, ALS, and Alzheimer’s.

To NBZ Apparel these are more than just words.  They are the right of every man, woman, and child to live their life without limits or boundaries.  Yet, for people living with a disability, it takes courage, strength, and perseverance to overcome all kinds of limitations.  For example, adaptive clothing for the disabled is often hard to find, poorly made, or unattractive.  In other words, limiting.  That’s why NBZ Apparel International offers a line of high quality, fashionable adaptive apparel for children and adults designed to make a difference in people’s lives.

Committed to Making a Difference



How NBZ Apparel Supports People with Disabilities

Loss of independence is a major issue which impairs the lives of millions of people mentally, physically, and financially.  For example, over 65% of working-age adults with disabilities are unemployed… many times the national unemployment rate!

The lack of easy-to-put-on, quality adaptive clothing for the disabled is a major impediment to a person with a disability finding work.  This is because it is difficult to get and maintain a job if all a person can only wear is sweat pants.  The next time you get dressed try putting on your pants with one hand as if you were an amputee, or try manipulating a zipper or buttons as if you were a person with autism, MS, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, or a stroke victim.   You will quickly understand why people worldwide can benefit from NBZ Apparel clothing which features pull-on pants with a mock fly and buttons.

Can a pair of pants change a person’s life?

  • Ask the student who no longer needs dressing assistance from a teacher’s aide every time he or she needs to go to the restroom.
  • Ask the wounded or disabled veteran who can confidently consider job opportunities because NBZ Apparel provides dressing options other than sweatpants
  • Ask the senior who prior to wearing NBZ Apparel pants felt house-bound because he or she could no longer dress stylishly and independently.

NBZ Apparel realizes that a great looking pair of our jeans, khakis, or black dress pants will not solve all of a person’s problems.  However, the ability for a person to maintain their personal dignity and independence by being able to dress themselves cannot be overstated.  Based on countless letters and comments from wonderful customers we believe NBZ Apparel is changing lives worldwide… one pair of pants at a time!

You Don’t Have to Have a Disability to Love our Pants!

People don’t need to be disabled to wear NBZ Apparel adaptive clothing.  Weightlifters, football players, truck drivers, skaters, and others purchase our pants due to their durability, appearance, and the stretchy, comfortable feel of our clothing.  Our adaptive apparel is perfect for men and boys without disabilities who want to wear a stylish, comfortable, well made pair of pants.
