Lionheart Apparel, LLC is a clothing company dedicated to outfitting Christian men in quality apparel that is subtle, symbolic, and stylish. Although a person is defined by their actions, we believe a person's choice in clothing can make a statement, and our mission is to provide men with a way to declare their Christian beliefs to the world without saying a word. Similar to sporting the jersey of a favorite athlete, our clothing line encourages men to identify with Christian role models throughout history. As a company and as men, we believe we are called to defend life at all ages, both born and unborn, and we donate ten percent of all profits to pro-life causes.
Lionheart Apparel T-shirts are sweatshop-free and made in the USA.
All screen-printing and embroidery for our clothing is completed in California and Texas.
Lionheart Apparel makes every effort to boycott products from China and all other countries where freedom of religion is oppressed.
David Colletti is the CEO and co-founder of Lionheart Apparel. He also serves as the company''s General Counsel. His professional career practicing corporate law has led him to prestigious firms in New York City and Dallas and currently to be Senior Counsel of the world's largest convenience store retailer. However, David's entrepreneurial spirit has always called him to build a company from the ground-up. From this desire and his intrepid Catholic faith, along with his belief that men need to practice their faith openly and with pride, Lionheart Apparel was borne. His belief that Lionheart clothing will inspire faith-based discussion for men who are normally reticent is a vision that has been widely promoted in Christian circles.
David, who hails from Landsdale, Pennsylvania, graduated Summa Cum Laude from The Catholic University of America in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts in Politics and in History. He earned a Juris Doctor (J.D.) from George Washington University in 2003, where he graduated with High Honors. His studies included a stint in at the Irish Institute for European Affairs in Leuven, Belgium and an internship with the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium.
In addition to his academic achievements, David has played rugby in the USA Super League for the Potomac Athletic Club, the Winged Foot RFC of The New York Athletic Club, and the Dallas Harlequins RFC and is a mixed-martial artist. An avid sportsman, he is an accomplished tri-athlete who regularly competes in events throughout the United States.
David is a firm believer that actions speak louder than words (or symbols). He acknowledges that being a man of Christ is a great challenge, and his message to men is: Identify Yourself!
