Premium Crafted Tees

Best fit. Best feel.

Airlume Combed & Ring-Spun Cotton. No C.O.E.

We have been preaching the combed and ring spun message since day one, back when all the other guys were using carded open end. We have been true to our core belief that quality garments start at the thread level, which is exactly where we start our design process. Our signature Airlume Combed and Ring-Spun Cotton is engineered to create the softest, smoothest tee you’ve ever felt.

The Airlume Difference?
  • Clean Cotton: We comb out 2.5x more impurities than standard ring spun cotton
  • Long Staple Cotton: This makes for less stray fibers and a tight-knit print surface
  • Eco-Dyed: Our fabric is dyed in L.A. using the most eco-friendly dyes and 7x less water than the average garment manufacturer.


CREATING THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN JOBS

Largest dyer & cutter of apparel in the US

We dye and cut more garments in the United States than any other clothing manufacturer. And it’s all done right here in Los Angeles!

Creating American Jobs

American made is something we believe in deeply. As one of the biggest clothing manufacturers in America, we provide well over 1,000 jobs right here in Los Angeles. We are always pushing the envelope to add more volume and just recently doubled the size of both our cutting and fulfillment facilities, adding even more jobs!

No Sweatshops/WRAP Certification

Doing things the right way has never been up for debate. We have been manufacturing in the U.S. and internationally in a no-sweat-shop, humane, sustainable way since day one. Our W.R.A.P. certification is just a small indication of how hard we work to make our sewing and cutting floors pleasant, productive, comfortable places to be.

What Principles Does the WRAP Certification Include?

  • Human resources management
  • Health and safety standards
  • Environmental and eco-friendly practices
  • Legal compliance including import/export, customs compliance and security standards


Eco-Friendly Process

Earth First. Always.

Water Reduction

By using newer, more efficient dye machines, we use 7x less water than the average for clothing manufacturers, saving 24 million gallons a week. Any water we do use goes through a filtration system that allows it to be recycled.

Energy Reduction

We are a green company through and through – taking every opportunity we can to reduce our co2 emissions. If you take a quick tour around our headquarters you’ll find we use solar energy to power our sewing and cutting facilities, motion-sensor LED lighting and skylights throughout each building, and electric car charging stations to encourage employees to go green.

Virtually Zero Waste

Our manufacturing facilities and LA Headquarters produce almost no landfill because we recycle pretty much everything that can’t be turned into a tee. We’ve optimized our cutting to reduce plastic use, and excess fabric is recycled into a number of things like baby bibs or stuffing for upholstery. Let nothing go to waste!
