Life is constantly throwing us curve balls, causing us to sweat before a big presentation, roll up our sleeves before fixing a broken sink, and step off the bench for a pick-up game after work. You need a classic shirt that will rise to all of life’s challenges, ensuring you feel fresh first thing in the morning and feel that same freshness late in the evening.
Style & Tech shirts are designed with high-performance textiles to make your day-to-day life easier. Our shirts are designed with patented COOLMAX® polyester yarn, as well as antibacterial fabric from Sanitized® by SANITIZED AG, a leading company in hygiene. This means you can wear your Style & Tech shirt for days at a time without having to wash it. The moisture-wicking capabilities and COOLMAX® technology wick away sweat to keep you feeling cool and comfortable in the hottest of situations.
American sizes are similar to Brooks Brothers® (our traditional fit), New England Shirt Company® (also our traditional fit) or GANT® (our slim fit pattern).
European sizes are similar to JH® brand (our regular fit) and ETON® (our tailored fit).

We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends.
Save some dollars and place a group order. Organize a group pledge with your friends. When you pledge at the "Garage” level, multiple pledges will be shipped to a single address at a much lower shipping cost.
We remain committed to make every effort to keep shipping charges reasonable by using reliable shipping methods with guaranteed delivery. In case the actual shipping charges end up being higher than the amounts indicated above, we will cover the difference ourselves.
Our founder, Juan, was born into a family of fashion. His parents fought to break through the industry, and after years of watching them, he decided it was his time to do the same. Taking a risk, Juan spent the last few years visiting suppliers, checking out different fabrics, and coming up with different ways to create his own unique fabric. After countless months and hours of research, Juan found that the technology in clothing existed, it just didn’t exist in fashion.
Through this project, you’ll see all that Juan and the rest of the S&T team has accomplished. We’ve selected the best technology that’s already used in police uniforms, sanitary uniforms, high-risk job uniforms and outdoor wear, and mixed it all together to create one incredible, high-tech fabric.
Sustainable fashion is not a slogan, it is a way of thinking and a way of doing. We did not wanted to left anything behind, so for making our product and running our financials, we have selected a bank that offers sustainable banking services. All the funds raised will be handled by Triodos Bank, one of the world´s leading sustainable banks, with the mission to engage in positive social, environmental and cultural change.
Style & Tech is sustainable fashion for various reasons:
The fabric we use, which is treated with Sanitized®, can be washed less frequently, allowing you to save on water, electricity and detergent. We adhere to the Ecoembes packaging management system, promoting and managing to make it possible for all the containers we generate to be recycled and have a second life.
All materials used in the making of our garments (buttons, labels, interlinings, etc.), fulfil the OEKO - TEX® certification. OEKO - TEX® is an independent system of testing and verification that is homogeneous throughout the world.
- It certifies compliance with all legal regulations regarding the production processes for textiles.
- It certifies the absence of chemical substances that may be harmful to health, even if they are not yet regulated by legislation.
- It requires compliance with national requirements such as the US Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regarding lead.
We seek to market what is known as “Slow Fashion” in contrast with “Fast Fashion”. This collection, our ‘White Collection’, as an example of our overall philosophy, promotes a philosophy of responsible consumption.
- Our materials are environmentally friendly. With certified processes.
- We seek the sustainability of the industry through products of the highest quality.
- We manufacture slow-moving and long-lasting garments, clothes that will last several campaigns and which the consumer does not tired of at the end of a season.
- We manufacture locally, both the fabric and the finished garment.
The fabric we use is certified by Bluesign®. An independent certification that guarantees the efficiency and sustainability of the fabric production process, from the beginning of its manufacture to the end, making sure that no harmful chemical substance is used. The Bluesign® system is based on five principles:
- Efficiency in the use of the raw materials and components used.
- Consumer safety.
- Water release.
- Air release.
- Health and safety at work.
Risks and challenges
I've been working on fashion industry the last 20 years. I am the fourth generation of a family dedicated to the clothing industry, mainly doing shirts. I have had all kind of problems in this industry and I am sure we will be able to manage this production.
Timing is always the main risk, but I am confident that with the seven months window we have set to deliver your shirts, there will not be any problem.
Special requests for sizing (arm length and total length, etc.) and personalized labels, are also risks to have in mind. Quality is our main objective. Having all our production process for our shirts here in Spain, in Ciudad Real and in Barcelona, makes control easier that for productions in China, Vietnam, etc. We will be able to visit week by week the fabric mill, the workshop, the warehouse that will make the deliveries, etc., and we will control shirts one by one when they go out of the workshop line and get ready for packing and delivery.
Quality of the fabric is the last key risk that we have. To avoid this risk, we are ready to analyse in laboratory all fabric lots that we receive. We will analyse the transpiration properties, we will analyse the moisture wicking ratios, we will confirm in laboratory the UPF 50+ solar protection, the antibacterial properties, etc., before any shirt is cut. These tests in laboratory will guarantee us that the high performances features we are offering are 100% confirmed.
Style & Tech is not sportswear - you might be able to play occasional sports after work with friends or family, or going cycling to work being all day fresh and without smell on your shirt, but to run a marathon is a complete different thing (you can also do without smell and being fresh, but it is not intended for). The breathability of our shirts is superb, with really good Rct and a Ret coefficients (tested in laboratory). If you want to know more about how to measure breathability please read our catalogue (page 6).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
