Werk Wear Clothing is designed to flatter everyBODY.  Men come in all shapes and sizes, but we all want to feel bright and sexy.   We are an all inclusive brand rooted in the idea that all men need to love what they have and celebrate it.  Just because we are men, doesn't mean we don't love fun and color!

 Werk Wear wants all men to love their body.  And love showing it off!

Holes print in production

Each suit has been handmade in NYC by our founder.  They each feature a bright, bold pattern to really showcase the fun side of summer.   The front panel and crotch are fully lined, with an drawstring set to the side (to not obscure the goods of course).  The 4 way stretch fabric features photo realistic prints, vibrant colors and comfortable for all day wear.  

Magic wearing the "Sandwiches" suit

The thing that makes the suit stand out is the way they are cut.  Many shorts of this style feature a short side seam and a pouch in the front.  Werk Wear are cut with a longer side seam and a flat front.  These details make the suit similar to a square "boyshort" style.

Your Support Matters

Werk Wear is truly a passion project of mine.   I wouldn't be where I am thus far without the amazing support, kindness and advice I've received thus far.

With your support, I will be able further this project and  really turn this dream into a reality. By supporting our fundraiser, you are joining the Werk Wear family.   You will have played a key role in helping complete the first professional run of full-production on the main suit as well as allow me to expand the brand with a bigger collection and grow the brand by bringing it to the masses. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support!

 Here's how YOU can help:

  •  SHARE!  Spread the campaign online!  Even if you are unable to help financially - helping spread the word of Werk Wear will help drive others toward the brand.  Most importantly, help others dealing with body positivity (like I was) to love their body! 
  •  PLEDGE! Any pledge, regardless of size, is so greatly appreciated.  You won't regret seeing where the brand will grow
  •  SOCIAL MEDIA! Find Werk Wear on Instagram (@WerkWear), Twitter (@WerkWear), Facebook: (@WerkWearClothing), and our store on Etsy (Etsy.com/shop/WerkWear)
  •  COLLABORATE! I am  always looking to create relationships in advertising, investing, distributing, etc!  I dream of getting Werk Wear into boutiques across the globe.  If you can help spread the word of body positivity and fun, please reach out!

Risks and challenges

I have formed a relationship with a manufacturer in my home state of Minnesota. I am proud to be able to bring work back home! There should be no problem with putting the suits into production. The timeline for rewards could be affected by an unforeseen workload on either parties part, or the availability of certain fabrics. I will continue to create the suits myself to keep orders fulfilled and a timeline moving steadily forward.
