The Story Behind RibbedTee
Fed up with boxy undershirts from the Big-box stores and department stores' aisles of ill-fitting chaos and confusion, Mike Schwarz set out to right a wrong.
The Challenge: Create the world's most comfortable & best fitting undershirts, educating along the way, and help people in their personal journey to challenge the status quo.
Despite being laid-off, Mike took a leap of faith.
Using a cash-advance from one of his last credit cards, no apparel experience, and a vision, he navigated his way through unfamiliar territory and introduced RibbedTee's first product in 2008.
We're truly thankful for all the love and support we've received over the years.
To our family, colleagues, the community, and most of all, our customers -- we couldn't have done it without you.
As our offering continues to grow, our mission stays the same.
Creating products that WOW our Customers and help them look and feel their best is ingrained into our DNA.
Buy smart. Feel great.
Mike & Kim, RibbedTee founders

Commitment To Our Local Partners: Growing Together
Unlike many other brands, we're not interested in farming our manufacturing out to unknown large manufacturing partners across the globe.
That's not our style.
Instead, we're committed to building long-term partnerships with our local Los Angeles-based manufacturing partners, who are in many cases family-run boutique businesses themselves.
As we grow, they grow. Now that's something we can get behind.
In fact, many of the partners we currently work with are the exact same ones we started with in 2008.
