Buying a T-shirt isn’t just buying a T-shirt. Every dollar you spend is essentially supporting one thing or another, and more people are realizing that now more than ever.
As such, you probably want to not only find the best quality shirts possible but also find shirts that are made by a company that you can agree with on an ideological level.
Well, we can’t promise to be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you love our armed forces, our country, and badass designs, you’re at the right place.
Combat Iron Apparel is a veteran-founded, operated, and supported business. We also put extra care into making our t-shirts worthy of rigorous activity and abuse to ensure they survive your strenuous lifestyle without holding you back.
Not convinced? Here are some key points to consider when searching for the best men’s veteran-designed t-shirts.
Why Buy Veteran-Designed Shirts from a Veteran-Owned Company?
Nowadays, it just seems like every brand out there has some sort of political or ideological attachment.
Your clothes, your car, your phone, and even your beer have some sort of underlying marketing motive, and unfortunately, the majority of those brands have left half the population out of their target audience.
Do you want to support a business that depicts you as a problem, or do you want to support a business that values you, American values, and the men and women who have made this all possible? If you’re still reading at this point instead of clicking off with an attitude, we’re guessing the answer is a resounding “yes”.
Combat Iron Apparel is a veteran-owned apparel company, and all our t-shirt designs are made by men and women who not only served but believe in American values just as much as you do. When you spend your money here instead of with a brand that has insulted you, your way of life, and America in general, you’re essentially voting with your wallet.
What Makes Combat Iron Apparel Stand Out?
Beyond all the ideological points we can make, Combat Iron Apparel isn’t just out here to make a statement. You’re a grown adult who knows these things, and we respect our customers. We put in the effort to not only be just another one of many patriotic clothing brands, but a brand you can feel good about supporting but also to offer you a superior product.
Here are some of the ways we stand out.
1: Veteran-Made Designs
Who knows what a t-shirt needs to handle abuse and relentless lifestyles more than a former serviceman? Our shirts aren’t cooked up by a fashion guru trying to make waves in Hollywood or match the latest trend. They’re made by men and women who have lived the most relentless, ruthless lifestyles and know exactly where most shirts fall short.
Our veterans design our shirts to be fit, comfortable, and more importantly, conducive to your day-to-day operations. Whether you’re at the gym, the range, or hiking a rugged mountain trail to keep your body in tip-top shape, our shirts are designed to stick with you and keep you going.
That’s what you’re going to experience when you first put on any of our men’s t-shirts (or any other t-shirt, for that matter).
2: Messaging for American Values
Being made by veterans for men with American values, you won’t find the frilly messaging other brands are pushing off as chic and PC. Our designers aren’t afraid to make badass designs for testosterone-filled men with messaging that counts.
Whether you’re looking to show your American pride, support the 2A, or anything else deemed “inappropriate” in the modern era, we’ve got you covered. In a lot of ways, we’re the anti-agenda shirt company. If you think it’ll set off a particularly sensitive neighbor, we’ve got it.
That doesn’t mean we’re all about serious tones and testosterone, though. Vets have a better sense of humor and appreciation for the sillier parts of life than anyone. You have to if you want to get through a deployment. We have plenty of options featuring everything from rubber duckies in combat gear to silly sayings and dad jokes.
3: Premium Material Selection
You can’t have a high-quality shirt made of subpar materials. There are a lot of brands that try to slip that little cost-cutting measure in unnoticed, but not here. All our shirts are 100% cotton and manufactured to last. We have standards at Combat Iron Apparel, and you won’t find lackluster materials from shady sources here just so we can save a buck.
4: 2A and Gear Friendly
To be considered the best men’s veteran-designed t-shirts, the tees in question need to be 2A friendly and not pose a problem when you need to get your firearm up and running.
Remember how we said all our shirts were made by vets and designed to meet their standards? Guess who has a lot of experience with constitutional carry and plenty of EDC gear? Vets do.
A common theme with our shirts is that they mesh perfectly with the gear you carry on you every day, or the gear you might need to slap on in an emergency.
You won’t find yourself tugging at your shirt before you can unholster your firearm in a split-second engagement, getting your belt gear hung up on extra material, or having to worry about your plates causing more discomfort than they naturally do because your shirt not meshing with them well.
Our shirts stay out of the way, form-fitted, and perfect for gearheads who might need to access their gear at a moment's notice. They just look a lot cooler than combat gear.
5: Comfort-Minded Designs
Finally, none of those benefits matter if the shirt isn’t comfortable. Discomfort is part of life, but when it distracts you from the task at hand, it’s a hindrance. You want to minimize that as much as possible.
One of our core design philosophies is to ensure that our shirts will be comfortable as long as you order the right size. It’s not just necessary for intense situations. Who wants an uncomfortable shirt during the more mundane parts of life?
