&Collar

Growing up in Hong Kong, Ben Perkins lived in humidity. He regularly wore a white dress shirt for school functions, orchestra performances, and church activities. When he wasn't wearing a dress shirt, he was wearing athletic clothing. On one particularly muggy and miserable day while wearing a white shirt he thought, "Why can't I make a dress shirt out of athletic material?" And that is how the idea of &Collar was born. Except in 2008 and as a 13-year-old, the brand was Wicka-Sweat. 

A few years later after returning home to the US after living in the Philippines for two hot years, Ben decided it was time to make it happen. With that said, Wicka-Sweat needed rebranding. He reached out to the best branding team he knew: his sister and her advertising friends: Lizzi Perkins, Timmy Bates, David Shum, and Jordan Larsen. 

After breaking bread, the company &Collar was officially formed in August of 2017. From the first meeting in a living room to running the company out of several different garages, we have always kept the goal of producing affordable apparel that will not only keep you comfortable but won't break the bank.

Walkbye

WBHow often are you out and about in your daily activities that you see someone who catches your eye? This happens all the time! Unfortunately, we hardly ever take the opportunity to go and introduce ourselves, and that opportunity is gone.

But, what if the opportunity wasn't gone? What if you could get on an app and in REAL-TIME connect with those you see around you. Walkbye users connect with other singles through their own social media profiles. When you see someone you think you may be interested in, get on Walkbye, find their profile, and connect with them through their social media.

Find mutual friends, shoot a DM, comment on a post, or if they are "vibing" confidently talk to them in person. Walkbye provides new opportunities for singles to connect with those they see around them.
