About this project
Why You'll Love SilverAir.
SilverAir is the result of a collaboration between us and some of the finest mills and factories around the globe. While SilverAir is our first development, our story starts out with a frustration in buying mens activewear.
Big brands offer hundreds of choices when it comes to activewear, which can get pretty overwhelming especially for us guys. Plus, they are not always of high quality, their designs are too sporty sometimes with excessive branding, and they retain odor after you sweat in them often creating a permanent smell with moderate use (especially the 100% polyester ones).
We set out to create a brand that's different - different because we want to focus on creating a handful but only the best athletic apparel in terms of quality, functionality and style. Usability and versatility are also key components in our design process because we believe in delivering experiences that add value to your lives in more ways than one. What we're making is perfect for the gym, the city, just lounging around, or traveling.
We had to start somewhere...and so we did with SilverAir - a shirt designed from scratch by focusing on the qualities you love and eliminating the problems you hate.
With little experience in this industry, we knew that to make our vision a reality, we needed to work with the absolute best in the industry and not let cost be a factor in the sourcing and manufacturing of quality materials. So that's what we did. We hustled our way into the most innovative performance apparel manufacturers, convinced them of our vision, and created our first product by leveraging the best materials and technologies available.
Here we are, many months later, to fund our dreams and kickstart a brand we see tremendous potential in, only because we really believe in it and want you to believe in us. We really need you, and your support would mean the world to us.
How It Works
Where It's Made
We take pride in working with partners who share our vision towards quality. All our materials are ethically sourced from the best in the industry. Here’s where SilverAir comes from:
We are doing something really special - Our strategy with this campaign is to get these shirts to as many people as possible. So, at the expense of making profits, we are offering rewards that will amaze you for what you'll be getting. Check them out:
Thanks to you, we have surpassed our first stretch goal and can now produce both the Crew Neck and the V Neck short sleeves. You can make your selection along with the colors and sizes at the end of the campaign. Please note that the long sleeve shirt is available only in Crew Neck.
Our shirts are designed to have an athletic fit - neither too tight nor too loose.

Risks and challenges
Timely fulfillment of rewards is extremely important to us.
The good news is that SilverAir is the result of a collaboration between us, our manufacturer and our suppliers. They've participated at every stage of the development process and have produced many prototypes leading to the near-final ones you see in our video and page. We will make some final adjustments in design before commencing full-scale production but all that is scheduled to be completed by December.
With that said, the manufacturing process for this particular garment is more complicated than that of a regular t-shirt. Although not expected, a delay in production is possible (for example: if there is inconsistency in the quality of products we will stop production until the issues are fixed). The last thing we want to do is deliver a product you will not be happy with.
Just know that our manufacturer produces high-tech apparel for some of the leading brands like Patagonia, UnderArmor, and Adidas and is experienced at tackling any issues that may arise. We have full confidence in them.
What we need now is your support; so please give us the opportunity to reward you with an experience like no other.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As soon as the campaign ends (on December 15th), we’ll send you a survey to complete where you can let us know your size and color preferences. We will also collect your shipping information at that time.
No, this shirt will not stop you from smelling bad. The silver fights the bacteria that accumulates in the shirt, keeping it fresh and preventing the shirt itself from smelling bad.
How long a shirt will last depends on how you use and take care of it. We've designed it to last years with proper care and intended use.
The anti-odor technology of the shirt is not a topical treatment but a part of the fabric itself making it impossible for the silver to 'wash away'.
This shirt is perfectly safe for your washer/dryer. We recommend a light wash and no more than 10 minutes in the dryer as the shirt will be almost dry coming out of the washer.
It is further recommended that you do not use any bleach or fabric softeners when washing the garment.
Our shirts have an athletic fit, which simply means that it’s not too tight but not baggy either. We will be putting up some more pictures very soon to help you understand the fit.
Unfortunately, at this time we are a men’s only brand. However, women from our friends and family that have tried the shirt love it as a form of comfort-wear.
Yes, keep an eye out for stretch goals. We'll post some ideas through an update very soon.
