Our Story

We design clothing that looks smart, feels amazing and performs at the gym, around the city, or anywhere in between.

 

 

We started Y Athletics because we felt that there was a void in the market for performance apparel with clean designs. All the major brands made too many products with sporty designs and big logos, and we craved for clothing that we could sweat in and also look smart around town.

 

We asked ourselves a simple question - 'If we had to create only one shirt that had to be the best, what would it look like?'. And so we started with a blank slate... learning about apparel manufacturing from the ground up, digging deep into fabrication and construction and scouring the globe for innovative technologies and world-class factories.

 

It took us many months to get it right, but we sacrificed speed in favor of perfection. After a year, we had our first product. We called it the SilverAir shirt due to a unique odor-fighting yarn made of pure silver that we infused into the garment, combined with it's ultra light weight that makes you feel as if you're not wearing anything (in a good way, of course).

 

On a Tuesday morning, sitting at a Starbucks in Los Angeles, we showed it to the world through a Kickstarter campaign (link to campaign). The rest is history.

 

Our expertise have evolved but our principle hasn't changed. We don't make too many products but whatever we do make is some of the best in the world. We exist for those who appreciate the beauty of simplicity, craftsmanship, and quality over the status quo. If that is you, welcome to your brand.
