About

Regular Undershirts Suck, We Fixed 'Em Once -- Now We're Taking it to the Next Level (Offering Crew Neck and V-Neck Undershirts)

Regular undershirts are shapeless, have excess fabric, and OFTEN COME UNTUCKED, all of which cause a sloppy look and feel. Our current undershirts are awesome, now we've redesigned the  shirts to make them even better and are launching this campaign to raise the needed funding.

UnderFit undershirts are longer all around to stay tucked in ALL day and tapered cut to fit your body better. The fabric is STRETCHY so it provides a light body hugging fit and tailored feel so you don't suffer from the dreaded undershirt gut appearance.

People say the camera adds 10 lbs, a loose fitting undershirt adds 20.

We've been manufacturing and selling U.S. made, high quality Men's undershirts through our site, www.UnderFitShirts.com, since 2010. Now I want to greatly improve quality and bring it to the next level.

The Fit
UnderFits have a tailored cut and feel. UnderFits are wider at the shoulders and chest and narrower by the waist. Your body is the same way. Avoid boxy billowing undershirts causing you to look less trim than you actually are.

As you can see in the prototype pictures below, the shirt conforms to your body, making you look and feel slimmer. These are NOT compression shirts though, that isn't the point. We just wanted to make a better fitting and more comfortable undershirt.

Pardon the tighty whitey underwear. This is the shirt we're going to make.  Notice the light body hugging fit.

Goal: Make an Amazing Undershirt... Goal Accomplished.

What's the best fabric for an undershirt?

UnderFit’s ProModal fabric offers:

1. Exceptional softness (95% ProModal/ 5% Spandex)

2. A stretch that moves with your body

3. Superb temperature regulation

4. Advanced moisture absorption

5. Odor Resistance

The fabric's moisture wicking technology limits moisture whereby reducing odor causing bacteria.

It's 2015, Stop Wearing a Cotton Undershirt Designed in 1960 !

In 2010, the undershirt got a much needed update, it's time to update again. Stop buying those boxy, shapeless department store undershirts! Ya, I know they're cheaper, but they aren't anywhere near as comfortable as our shirts. Remember the old saying your Nana always told ya "You get what you pay for!"

You wear undershirts for 8 hours every workday, don't you deserve more comfort? If you don't want to be more comfortable every time you wear an undershirt, don't back this project.

The Biggest Problem With V-Necks

Most V-necks aren't designed to be hidden when two buttons on a button down shirt are unbuttoned. Many people that buy V-necks are wearing them in a casual setting with two buttons unbuttoned. Our prototype V-necks stay hidden in these situations, exactly what V-necks are meant to do.

Frustration is the Mother of Invention

After years of my undershirts coming untucked throughout the day, I decided to do something about it. After a lengthy fabric testing process and making prototypes, I developed the most comfortable undershirt imaginable.

Once you wear an UnderFit, you'll never go back to a regular undershirt again. Trust me, it has happened to countless customers and all my friends that tested the prototype samples.

CURRENT VERSION OF SHIRT
CURRENT VERSION OF SHIRT

Choosing a Size: UnderFit shirts are made of a lightly stretching material which offers a close and light body hugging fit. The recommended size on the chart will provide a light body hugging fit.

Our fit chart shows two sizes for some body types and the larger size will not be a light body hugging fit, but slightly looser. The shirts are not compression shirts, but do provide a close to the body feel.

The Prototypes - V-Neck and Crew Neck Undershirts

The new version for which we are raising money will be of much higher fabric and stitching quality and also sport a deeper and wider V-neck so it stays hidden. Most V-necks aren't designed to be hidden when two buttons on an Oxford shirt are unbuttoned. Many people that buy V-necks are wearing them in a casual setting with two buttons unbuttoned. Our prototype V-necks stay hidden in these situations, exactly what V-necks are meant to do.

The seams are all very high quality, which is most often used in athletic and swimwear for its incredible durability. Many undershirts develop holes in the underarm because multiple seams meet at that point. This new version will have the special knitting, which will ensure no holes will develop with these shirts.

What Will This Money Be Used For?

1. Purchasing the fabric

2. Paying for manufacturing of the shirts

Price

When buying undershirts, your options are either buy a pack of them for a few bucks each or pay $30+ each for high end undershirts from some fancy store or online retailer. 

Since we sell directly to you, we can offer these shirts for $20.

Risks and challenges

Every project has potential complications, but we've already been doing this since 2010, we're now just greatly increasing quality and making a better shirt.

I have everything already arranged from the raw materials, to the manufacturer, to the shipping. This ain't my first rodeo.

I didn't want to launch a campaign until everything was perfectly lined up. I'll complete this project on time and ship the shirts to every backer immediately upon receiving them.

If setbacks arise, I'll work diligently to overcome them quickly. I've been manufacturing and selling UnderFit undershirts for 4 years and I'll deliver an amazing product which will transform your opinion of undershirts.
