About Us - Our Story


Dog Pound Apparel was established in November 2016 at the Pi Psi Chapter Frat House by Bro. Reed, 5-16-Pi Psi -- He is currently a doctoral student at the University of Illinois - Chicago, working towards a PhD in Criminology, Law and Justice. Jacob recently received his master's degree in May of 2020! 

Bro. Jacob Reed UIUC 2018 Graduation


While balancing family, education, and entrepreneurship, Jacob's goal is to create beautiful one-of-a-kind garments utilizing custom embroidery services. Dog Pound Apparel / Lee Reed Embroidery has been in the embroidery industry since 2017, but it wasn't until 2020 that we we're prepared to offer embroidery as a service.


As the business grows, it is my goal to extend the opportunity to collaborate with additional graphic designers, clothing manufacturers, apparel makers, creatives, OWT BRUHZ, and more! Feel free to connect on any one of our platforms!

The various apparel items on this site are manufactured with the highest quality vinyl and embroidery material available! This means your gear will last the test of time, with proper care of course! 


*Remember to wash your clothes inside out, with cold water; low tumble dry or air dry preferred. Do not iron the vinyl directly, always turn the garment inside out first!
