FAQs

What is Science of Apparel?

We are the new American standard for performance + sustainability. Founded on the promise of changing the fashion industry, we create style without waste + quality you can afford. We use smart science combined with Earth-friendly textiles to build wardrobe basics to perfection. All of our clothes are engineered to be lived in not just worn.

What makes your clothing any different?

Science. We love science. We’ve spent over a year on R+D to create highly engineered products (including the first tee shirt ever guaranteed for life) that perform better than traditional brands + protect the environment. Each garment is integrated with innovative technologies like silver ions (for odor), fluorocarbon polymers (for stain resistance) + natural fibers (for feel + impact) to name a few. Plus, our manufacturing uses 75% less water than traditional brands.

What’s this about sustainability? How are you different from other apparel brands?

Big name performance apparel brands use petroleum-based fabrics. That’s oil consumed + wasted. We use only natural, organic or recycled fibers.

Big name brands use outdated manufacturing practices. Our state of the art facilities use 75% less water + save 1.71 gallons of H2O for every shirt we produce.

Plus, our garments are affordable because living green + spending green don’t need to be the same.

What does non-binary mean?

We believe shopping should be freeing, not discriminatory. For hundreds of years, big brands have divided everyone into binary genders -- male + female. Why should we follow standards set by companies who dressed people in heavy wool + corsets? Why should we limit anyone to a box when we’ve built a company based on thinking outside of one? Just as we refuse to use antique manufacturing methods that waste water + cause pollution, so too do we refuse to settle for outdated templates of identity. Our non-binary line considers those who don’t identify along old fashioned black + white concepts of gender. It’s part of our commitment to making a better, more inhabitable planet for everyone.

What do you mean “guaranteed for life”? It’s a tee shirt.

You’re damn right it’s a tee shirt. By “guaranteed for life” we mean Guaranteed. For. Life. Our Galileo Tee is so technologically advanced with natural fibers + integrated enhancements we know it will last a lifetime. If it tears, wears down, or falls anywhere short of that just call us + we’ll send you a new one. No questions asked. All of our textiles are trademarked for a reason.
