Who Am I? . . . My name is Gregory Cox. I think differently than most people and that is probably why I am still driving the same car I bought 29 years ago. I am a U.S. Air Force veteran and a Software Engineer with a degree in Computer Science. I became interested in apparel design while working at Sara Lee Knit Products in Winston Salem, NC. There I worked as a Senior Programmer helping the apparel planners.
How Did My Store Come To Be? . . . The short answer is necessity. I normally wear Pocket Tees from Ralph Lauren or Calvin Klein. One day while working outside my expensive eye glasses fell out of my pocket-tee so many times that I set them aside on the trunk of my car. I didn't remember about my glasses until I heard them fall off the car at 30 mph. They were never found. I decided to go online to buy some Zipper Tees. And I discovered they did not exist.
Still, after all that I was not ready to mass produce tee shirts. I only wanted a few ZipperTees. So I took my Zipper-Tee design and materials to a local seamstress. She rejected my job stating that it was too complicated. I got the same rejection from the next 4 dressmakers and tailors. Okay, so now I'm angry and determined to make these ZipperTees if I have to do it myself. Fortunately, I did not have to learn sewing.
How Are My Products Made? . . . My products are made from a variety of fibers from bamboo to cotton in the good ole USA. And I intend to keep it that way. I am currently working with one USA factory that has a team of skilled labor from pattern makers, design managers to sewing.
If I had to reduce my philosophy to a few words I would say, Quality Comes First. My products will always ship from the United States. I am located in Pasadena, Maryland. My products will ship from this location or directly from the factory in Minnesota.
