More than 60% of the energy we consume through calories escapes our body as heat. We are creating the first dress shirt made with Responsive Textile Technology that converts escaping body heat into infrared energy that is clinically proven to increase blood oxygen levels, improve circulation and help regulate body temperature.
Your current dress shirt needs an upgrade
At Fittersift we’re establishing an efficient link between the clothes we wear and the way they respond to our body. Starting with a dress shirt, we are bringing the latest innovations in the textile industry to the real world - at the office. With a four-way stretch that moves where you move combined with advanced fibers and technology in every thread, this dress shirt is made to get you through your active day without any signs of sweat, literally.
How it works
Using 13 thermo-reactive minerals specifically selected for their ability to convert body heat into infrared energy these minerals are permanently infused into the core of our fiber converting wasteful energy - body heat - into useful energy - infrared - delivering bottom line benefits.
The Responsive Textile Technology (RTT) utilized is developed by a group of scientists in the fields of physics, biology, chemistry and medicine and has gone through over five clinical trials through respected third party research institutions with European CE mark approval and pending FDA approval.
Why Responsive Textile Technology (RTT)?
We live at a time that from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep we are surrounded by technology that is part of our everyday lives. This inspired us to find a way to make technology complement our clothing in a more direct way.
Moisture management system
Managing the way moisture is transported is critical to how comfortable you feel in your dress shirt. So we devised a moisture management system built into a light weight two fold fabric. The inside layer is engineered with a patented yarn that is soft and natural to the touch and is composed of an intimate blend of both hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibers ensuring permanent moisture wicking without the use of any chemicals. The second you start sweating the inside layer absorbs your moisture just like a sponge and pushes it up to the top fabric layer where it then quickly evaporates into the air. This systematic approach provides moisture wicking with fast drying without the visibility of any sweat marks. Together with the benefits of the Responsive Textile Technology this keeps you cool and dry.
Effective odor control
You need an extra line of defense to keep your dress shirt smelling clean. Using Polygiene, the best in the industry blue sign approved silver salt antimicrobial known for its long lasting performance and eco-friendliness, it's made to last the lifetime of the shirt and keep your shirt smelling clean for days before having to wash.
Made in NYC
We consider New York as the mecca of fashion, technology and innovation. Fittersift is a brand home to NYC and we’re manufacturing right in the heart of the garment district. Every seam of this dress shirt comes with years of experience molded by famous clothing brands and fashion designers.

Where we are
Up to date we’ve finished testing the moisture management system built into our fabric having measured for wickability, drying time and anti-odor capabilities. We have reached the point where we are totally satisfied with its design and performance and we are ready for the next phase.
The Responsive Textile Technology (RTT) embedded into the core fiber of our fabric must be tested and approved to meet the rigorous standards set forth by Celliant, the proprietor of the technology we use. The fabric we have developed needs to undergo testing for transcutaneous oxygen pressure (TCPO2) with human subjects at a laboratory in Santa Monica, California to make sure it raises the oxygen saturation in the body by a minimum of 7-20 percent before we go into production.
Coming to Kickstarter we hope to create a dialogue with our early supporters by engaging with and listening to feedback that will enable us to deliver even more promising future tech wear.
If for any reason your dress shirt doesn't fit, send it back free of charge for an exchange. (Continental US Only)
International backers will be subject to a surcharge for exchanges.
From the initial design to final production we are creating a dress shirt that embraces areas of science, technology and fashion.
We have established relations with leading manufacturers within the smart textile industry and with their many years of experience and support we are finally lined up to fulfill our vision of creating the ultimate in dress shirt technology.
