Northwest Custom Apparel has been providing decorated apparel to the US Navy in Diego Garcia since 1999. This beautiful island, located 7 degrees north of the equator and directly south of India, is home to a Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR). This program offers various services and activities to enhance the quality of life for military personnel and their families stationed on the island. In light of this, Northwest Custom Apparel has created a range of products tailored to the people of Diego Garcia – from bar coasters to caps and shirts. We have designed and produced thousands of hats with unique designs specifically for the Diego Garcia Yacht Club.

The company I work for has been buying custom apparel for the team members for years now. We love working with NW Custom Apparel because the process is easy, delivery is timely, and materials are high quality. Anytime I’ve ever had an issue, they’re quick to resolve it. We’ve purchased both embroidered items and DTG graphic tees. We’ve purchased blankets, shirts, jackets, hoodies, etc. Everything ends up looking super professional, and our team members always have positive things to say. Ally is always there at the warehouse with a smile and a friendly greeting when I pick up materials. She is so helpful and respectful. Taylar is a wonderful customer service rep. I’ve sent her some complicated orders—like 20 different items with all different colorways and styles or 150 items with three different styles—and she is so good at getting everything just right. I plan to continue purchasing from NW Custom for high-quality custom apparel.
