"...if you actually wear this thing you won't need bright colors to be noticed."  - Chicago Tribune

"...classy, sassy, and totally badassy. So go on, tuck your flowing man mane into that turtle and strut your shit." - Lacey Maulding of mademan.com

Our Story

We started on this journey two years ago trying to solve a simple problem for one of our designers: his chest would get hot while his neck was cold.  That led to a larger question: why can’t we be comfortable in fashionable clothes? Current styles just didn't go far enough to solve this problem. We decided to create a modern garment that is not only very fashionable, but also offers the supreme style and comfort you have always been looking for. 

Introducing the TurtleV. We call it life performance wear.  You’ll want to wear it in every aspect of your life.  On the golf course? Hole in one.  At work?  Closing deals.  Going out tonight? Already dressed to impress.

We spent hours designing the TurtleV.  We made the pattern and then adjusted the pattern after the samples were made.  We're serious about making this.  Let us help you shake up your wardrobe.  Imagine all the possibilitise and then wearing them all. 

The Details

Research shows v-necks are awesome!  They are stylish and will always make you look great. But with the chest exposed, the neck region suffers from heat loss. To combat this, we worked many long hours with our team of designers to develop CNW: Comfort Neck Warming technology. CNW will insulate your neck region while simultaneously leaving the chest area open allowing it to breathe. CNW is breathable and reinforced for superior mobility.

People have asked what we mean by made in wherever? For us the emphasis is not on one specific location for fabrics, its about finding the best fabrics sourced from different factories throughout the world, ensuring the quality and life performance you expect. 

Right now the TurtleV's are proudly made right here in the San Francisco Bay Area so we can oversee the quality and how they are made.

Available in 3 sizes: S, M and L.  3 colors: Aspen White, Monaco Black and Paris Grey.

We will expand into other colors and materials in the near future based on demand and your feedback - tell us what your neck needs!

When to expect to them to be shipped out?  As soon as we’re funded, we will be reaching out to everyone to get their shirt size and color information.  

We welcome you to the TurtleV revolution! 

Risks and challenges

We are very confident that we will get these TurtleV's made and also have funds to start our online shop. We live in San Francisco Bay Area, and there are many resources here to make high quality garments. We've built relationships with the people that will collaborate with us and had samples made. The main risk is the bulk sewing and how busy their schedule is. With that said, there are other bulk sewers in the area, and so we have backup plans to ensure we get these made for you guys as soon as we can.
