In the beginning...
Average t-shirts were too "casual." We wanted to be comfortable, but not underdressed. Relaxed, but not lazy. Rugged, but semi-professional. So we set off on a mission to find a classic tee that we could wear anytime, anywhere, from workday to the weekend.
Well friends, we couldn't find that tee. So we got to work.
Inspired by military experience, when tucking your T-shirt was part of the uniform, we combined premium polo fabric with our favorite fit, and MGRS was born.
WHO WE ARE
MGRS Founder, Jamie, is a former Army Ranger (3/75) and Boston-area native.
With no formal fashion training, he sticks to styles he knows best, combining military standards, classic prep wear, and early '90s casual.
WHAT WE DO
MGRS makes the best and only tucked-in t-shirts on the planet. That's it. Laser focus.
WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT
The United States Army taught us a cool lesson, that no matter where life takes you, 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 – because 'home' isn't always a place, it's something we can we can take with us wherever we go.
MGRS commits 5% of all 2024 sales to the Army Ranger Lead Way Fund. Lead the Way Fund is an active duty, casualty assistance, recovery, transition and veterans organization that provides financial support, beyond what the government and veterans affairs can offer, to U.S. Army Rangers and their families.
AND IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING...
M·G·R·S comes from the Military Grid Reference System, the geocoordinate standard used by the military 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.
Our logo is inspired by the constellation Cassiopeia, which 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.
We don't have a team (yet), but we're taking applications. Please reach out! We're always down to work with cool people and help however we can.
