Hello! Thanks for visiting our site!

I'm Chris, one of the owners and founders of Thirteen Fifty Apparel. You can check out our "About Us" page for more info on where we got our name and what we're about.

In October, we will be launching our first two products! We came up with the idea to innovate the outdated and overpriced cotton made shirts that have saturated the market. Jay and I, along with some help from some of my co-workers at the police department where I work, came up with this new design. We wanted our first project to be a multi-functional, moisture wicking shirt that would keep your body cool and would be really comfortable to wear at work under or over your ballistic vest. We spent months sampling several different fabrics from various manufacturers before selecting the highest quality materials we could find. Cotton shirts are heavy and absorb your body's moisture which makes for a very uncomfortable feeling in high heat. Our high quality, polyester / spandex blend is extremely soft and lightweight. They are specifically engineered to be breathable and disperse moisture away from your body, not absorb it. We considered every little detail when innovating these shirts to provide extreme comfort, we even got rid of the annoying and irritating tags on the back of your neck. True to the patriotic spirit of our company, and the men and women who stand up next to us to defend our country, we proudly included our country's ultimate icon, the American Flag, in our design for these shirts. 

We have some other projects in the works that we're really excited about so stay tuned for updates. Please like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram where we announce all of our promotions and will be giving away some free gear in the near future!
