About this project
The SHARK SHIRT Polo is designed to be a classic with the essential shark edge.
You'll look great in the SHARK SHIRT, while either hanging out in the city or kick'n it back at the beach.
The SHARK SHIRT will also help get your game on for any competitive sports like tennis, golf, fuse ball, ping pong or a quick game of basketball.
More then the usual, mundane polo shirts, the Shark Shirt has a presence of focus, drive and determination.
The SHARK SHIRT logo looks sporting and has just noticeable teeth, to make for an overall outgoing and great looking shirt.
I wanted to get the logo just right. After a couple hundred drawings and many efforts to get the logo right also in stitch form, the logo is exactly as it should be.
The polo shirts are designed in a great classic sport fit, from 100% cotton, with just two pearlized buttons. The shirts will come in colors of black, navy, yellow, white, Bimini blue and mango.
The SHARK SHIRT will be put together mainly here in the U.S.. We are working closely with a great shirt company and a commercial embroidery group to get the logo and fit to stay exactly how we think it should be.
The Logo options are white, lifeguard orange, black or lime.
The polo shirts are designed in a great classic sport fit that is "fitted" and also true to size, without being tight that you need to go up a size or too loose that you need to go down a size. Being made from 100% cotton, the shirts fit perfectly to size after a cycle through the dryer. The polo shirts will come in sizes from small, medium, large, extra large and XXLarge.
I have a degree in Industrial Design from Mass College of Art and Design. I also attended Wentworth Institute of Technology. I started a first bike component company called RASE that makes my patented, award winning seatpost (Bicycling Mag). I have formed a new company called RACE Components, with new patents, for an even more advanced device.
The Kickstarter funding will be very helpful for getting this project launched and able to grow. The more funds I can raise, the more I can reduce manufacturing costs and spend time reaching out to new stores. The vision is to be selling the Shark Shirt across the U.S., through independent clothing shops, surf shops, marinas, the new website and many other great stores.
Thanks, Austin Walsh
