The Premium Long Lasting Polo Shirt

$26,483

We were tired of wasting money on polo shirts that didn't last.

On average, traditional polo shirts fail after only 8 months or 5 wear and washes; causing us to discard them and waste money buying a new shirt. 

We were tired of the name brand polo shirts that fail after a few months, so we decided to make a shirt that will last 5x longer than traditional shirts.

Introducing the Baobab Polo Shirt -  Proudly developed by 2 #PoloShirtNerds on a mission to make a long lasting, great looking polo shirt.

 

Our word is our bond

 

We believe that functionality and form are equally important.

  • No more pesky buttons - We added a premium quality YKK zipper for a sleek look and full control over how much chest your decide to show  
Zippers are better than buttons: We developed a hidden zipper placket so you can control exactly how much chest you want to have on display

 Timing and Process

We are working with a very experienced manufacturer in Peru that produces high-quality garments in a timely manner.  We've built in buffers to account for any surprises that may occur, but rest assured that you’re in great hands.

  • May - Kickstarter launch
  • June - Kickstarter complete & production begins!
  • July - Materials arrive & yarn is dyed to our specs and ready for knitting
  • August - Production completed & begin shipping to US and Canada backers

Risks and challenges

Our factory partner in Peru is already underway milling our raw fabric. We have a very good relationship with this factory and expect to hit all of our delivery deadlines as planned. As a precaution, we built in a nice buffer in the timeline just in case of delays.

Throughout this production process, we will keep you updated with the project as we go through each stage of development. Thank you again for your support!
