How We Do It
No expensive stores means no expensive retail mark-up or middlemen. You get more shirt for less.
At Ratio, we make every shirt to order, one-at-a-time, to the exact specifications of our customers. That means no excess inventory to be cleared at outlets and sale racks, and less mark-up overall.
custom clothing at off-the-rack prices.
For every dollar you spend on an off-the-rack designer shirt, only about 20 cents go towards the actual labor and materials to make it.
At Ratio, it's over double that.
Why "Made-in-the-USA" Matters
Today, over 97% of clothing sold in the USA is made overseas, leaving once flourishing factories empty and apparel workers jobless. For about every 60 shirts we sell a month, we create one full-time manufacturing job here in the US. We’re small, and it’s just a start, but we’re proud to do our part.
A custom shirt made in Asia takes a long solo journey, by air, from factory to your doorstep, leaving a large carbon footprint in its wake. By manufacturing locally, our shirts are shipped using existing ground networks (in recycled packaging) to minimize environmental impact.
Most custom shirt companies make their shirts halfway around the world, in the same couple of factories in China and Malaysia. We work onsite with smaller producers in the US to maintain tighter quality control throughout the entire process.
