In the world of quality athletic apparel, men have been given one choice: wear a logo across their chest AND pay a high price for the privilege of doing so. Now there’s another way. 

Introducing Athletes Collective, the WORLD'S FIRST UNBRANDED SPORTSWEAR LINE for men. Based out of Toronto, Athletes Collective was founded in 2014 with the goal of giving athletes the perfect basic athletic shirts with no visible branding, at an affordable price.

We are excited to be featured on BackerClub.co this week! They are the top community for people who are very serious about crowdfunding sites and we are really looking forward to the feedback and support from their community of super-backers!

Our shirts are proudly designed and made in Canada, with our manufacturing partner just 30 minutes from our office. Because we're selling directly to the consumer online and bypassing the retailer completely, we're able to keep our prices extremely low while still manufacturing locally.

Risks and challenges

We've tested and perfected the fabric, the pattern, and the design of each of our products for over a year. We have existing relationships with professional, reputable local manufacturing partners who make our products less than 30 minutes from our office, and because of these relationships, we can ensure your rewards will be fulfilled prior to the end of the year without the delays that often accompany Kickstarter projects.

For over a year we have worked exclusively with two local vendors in Toronto, our fabric supplier and our manufacturer, and because of this, we have minimized our risk through continuing strong relationships. Throughout the process, we promise to continuously work to ensure the best customer experience possible. From a customer service standpoint we promise to do everything in our power to exceed your expectations. Any questions or concerns will be addressed as promptly and completely as possible.
