Martín Majano: Style Writer, Brand Ambassador and Distinguished Gentleman
Born in San Francisco (the mission) in the mid 70’s, he grew up in the Bay Area until he decided to move to New York in 2000, where he finally felt like he found himself. Then in 2010 he moved to Orange County CA, where he’s made it his home for the past 9yrs. Martín has worked hard to develop a network of entrepreneurs that push him to do more.
Martín has started several ventures in the past few years to satiate his entrepreneurial spirit, the first being The Dead Legends T-Shirts. It’s a collaborative brand with artists from around the world in which they pay homage to fallen icons using Day of the Dead elements. There is a new artist featured every month with a limited run of Dead Legend tees. You can check them out at www.thedeadlegends.com
Martín has also started a YouTube channel called The American Ride, where he rides his Harley to artisans who create products, goods or services crafted in the USA.
He has founded KNWN|UNKNWN with 6 partners. It is a creative, collaborative and collective space, where they feature local artists, musicians and creatives alike.
Martín is also a Style contributor for local OC magazine Nobleman, where he writes about the latest fashion and gadgets any gentleman would love to have.
If you're looking for a sleek online shopping experience with curated brands, Martín has you covered at North Menswear.
Martín attributes his success to the people of his community as he enjoys highlighting local businesses and receives satisfaction by cross marketing.
He has a passion for his family, friends, cigars, music art, fashion and motorcycles.
Because of his love of motorcycles, Martín is involved with and on the planning committee of the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride which occurs every year in September. The efforts of this ride help raise funds for prostate cancer research as well as bringing to light mental health awareness. All proceeds go to the Movember foundation.
