Top Notch NME

Welcome toTop Notch NME, Top Notch is a state of mind that comes from within...that’s the NME (in me). Top Notch stands for the highest point, the best, the top of the line. It’s an Elitist state of mind and my clothing line and my shoes is an extension of my mindset. When I say “Elite” I’m not saying I’m better than anyone else, I’m saying that the force that drives me causes me to continuously seek the best in qauilty and materials. Which is why I use Italian leather and crocodile for the King Cobra shoes to give them a high-end look and feel with at a reasonable price. I never wanted to sacrifice quality and comfort in order to have a luxury feel. With Top Notch NME, I found a way where you can have the best of both worlds, it just makes sense.
