IN THE BEGINNING...
It started with a simple problem: our average tees looked too casual, and polos and button-downs felt too formal. We needed a t-shirt that we could wear from work to the weekend -- we're talking about easy, effortless style. So, we got to work.
Inspired by military experience (when tucking your T-shirt was simply part of the uniform), we combined premium polo fabric with the perfect fit, and MGRS was born.
WHO WE ARE
MGRS Founder, Jamie, is a former Army Ranger (3/75) and Boston-area native.
He stays true to the styles he knows best, combining military standards, classic prep wear, and the legendary swag of the '80s and '90s.
WHAT WE DO
MGRS makes the best (and only) tucked-in T-shirts on the planet. That's it. That's what we do.
What We're All About
The United States Army taught us a cool lesson: that no matter where life takes you, no matter the situation, anywhere can feel like home. And while new and unfamiliar places might make us uncomfortable, our clothes should not.
Our ethos “Always Home” is about finding that feeling – to be comfortable, free, and easy – from the products we make to the way we connect with people. Because 'home' was never really a place at all, it’s a feeling we take with us wherever we go.
AND IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING...
M·G·R·S comes from the Military Grid Reference System, the geocoordinate standard used to navigate across the world. Today, it reminds us that we can always find our way home. And it was the best idea we had. We're very smart. Gigantic brains.
The constellation Cassiopeia is used to find Polaris (the North Star) in the northern sky. Back in the day, soldiers and sailors used these stars as a guide to show them the way. Now we use our cell phones. Legit.
