100% USA Made Premium Athletic Wear - Four Athletics

$41,439

343

In 1980, America made 80% of its clothes in the US; today, that number is down to 2%. Our mission is to bring manufacturing and jobs back to the US. By going American made, we are committing to making the highest quality, most durable activewear on the market.

1. Made in the USA - All of our products are proudly made in the USA. That will never change.

2. Wholesale Pricing - A better business model allows us to sell these premium products at a fraction of the retail price!  

3. Crowdsourced - You decide what we make! Crowdsourcing allows us to match up supply and demand 100% of the time. We only make what you want—no guesswork, no waste. 

4. Community - Cutting out the middleman gives us an unprecedented opportunity to connect the people who back our products to the people who make them. More transparency, more communication, and all-around more human.

You’re probably thinking the last thing the world needs is just another active wear brand right? We think the exact same thing!

Four Athletics is certainly not that. We aren’t here to clutter store shelves with more outsourced, overpriced, mediocre-quality athletic apparel. We are here to change the way that premium active wear is bought and sold through our innovative business model which allows us to deliver top quality athletic wear at a substantial savings that would not be possible in traditional retail. Here is our story.

Ben, Matt, Casey and Cody

We are two sets of brothers who met in college and have been best friends ever since. We are “people people”—the kind of guys who want to squeeze every last drop out of life and find any reason to celebrate together. We love to laugh, we are competitive, and we’re constantly trying to out-do each other or play jokes on one another—that is, when we aren’t outdoors, in the gym, or finding another way to sweat.

A few years ago, Ben and Matt opened a gym in Southern California while Casey and Cody moved to the Bay Area to be employee #4 and #5 at a crowdfunded fashion startup. Our experience with crowdfunding exposed the outdated and costly way that the retail industry operates. It sparked many frustrated conversations about how premium quality athletic wear was getting laughably expensive and the affordable options just weren't holding up to our rigorous lifestyles. Worst of all, it was almost impossible to find anything that was made in the USA. As a group, we have a unique combination of experience in fashion, athletic competition, and the back-end/wholesale side of the clothing industry—so we decided to do something about it ourselves.

Out of these conversations, countless late nights, phone calls, meetings, and tons of work, Four Athletics was born. By leveraging the power of crowdfunding, we are able to match up supply and demand 100% of the time, and let you choose what we make. We eliminate waste, cut out the middleman, and deliver a premium quality product at a fraction of the retail price.

Four Athletics isn’t just another athletic brand, it is a better way. Join us!


CAN'T FIND THE REWARD YOU WANT?

Kickstarter limits you to backing only one reward per user. Select the reward that is closest to what you want. To add more products to your order, simply calculate the cost of the additional items and add it to the pledge amount. 

At the end of the campaign we will send you a survey where you can indicate your size and color preferences as well as any added products. If you have questions competing this process, send us a message by clicking the "contact me" link at the top of the Kickstarter page near the video.

For us, the perfect fit is just as much about looking good as it is about functionality in and out of the gym.  All of our products are designed with fit and function as the goal.  We are meticulous about every measurement and provide a comprehensive fit guide to help you identify the perfect size for you.  The 4-way stretch material has been tested on a wide range of body types and gives you that perfect athletic fit and the feeling of unlimited range of motion.  Four Athletics will give you that extra boost of confidence and help you feel as good as you look.

*We have intentionally left the inseam of our Men's and Women's pant a bit longer so you have the option of hemming them to your perfect fit.

USING THE FIT GUIDE – HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR SIZE

It is important to note that all of the fit guide measurements are off-the-body garment measurements.  If you are having trouble knowing which size is right for you, this guide will help you measure your best fitting piece of athletic wear and determine your Four Athletics sizing.  Lay your current garment on a flat surface and take each measurement according to the guide below.

That said, we are not trying to reinvent the wheel.  If you know your standard size in most major brands, you can feel confident that your Four Athletic size is the same.

Four Athletics is on the move! When we say you can wear these products anywhere, we mean it.  We put our products through every test imaginable and are confident you will love the unsurpassed quality and style. Feel good, look good, and be great whether you are giving it all you have in the gym, pushing yourself toward a higher peak, or traveling the world, Four Athletics is with you every step of the way.

Risks and challenges

In addition to cutting out the retail markup, we are excited to remove the middleman from this equation so we can have a closer connection and transparent relationship with our supporters. We can assure you we will work tirelessly to make sure our products are delivered on schedule and communicate with you every step of the way. We have spent countless late nights dialing in our supply chain and production timeline and are confident in our shipping dates. We have considerable experience in the production side of the clothing industry and don't anticipate any hiccups at all for delivery.

That said, if something unexpected does come up, our backers will be the first to know. We will keep you in the loop throughout the whole process, from the moment we make the first production cuts until your package is safely delivered to your door.
