Just found my new favorite Black Tri-Blend Tee from Okito
One thing we at FromNewYorktoTexas enjoy doing besides dressing well, are product reviews. We want to be the first or one of the first to promote and market new emerging brands to the world. With so many brands out there, we really have to take an interest in the brand, product and see if matches our aesthetics. I (David Rochez) believe that there are a few sides to a person. You have your business side, suits, dress shoes, and tie. And then, you have your casual/comfortable side, depending on what you do.
Today’s product review is emerging contemporary brand Okito, based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Founded in 2013 by Gabriel Okito, “Pirlo” as his friends call him, had a love for fashion at a young age. After graduating College and couldn’t see himself working a 9-5, Pirlo started Okito. A stand-out detail of his collections is his logo, the Okapi. Found only in the Ituri Rainforest, the Okapi is a blend of a Zebra and Giraffe. Okito and the endangered Okapi, have similarities, which are rarity, singularity, and exclusivity.
Fashion for some time now has been taken over by a contemporary and athletic style; which means accessible in price, modern, and younger. Personally, when I’m dressing down I tend to go modern, for a more comfortable feel, with clean lines, and great quality. Besides the Okapi logo, I really enjoyed the fabric and how it felt on my skin. The Okito Tri-Blend Shirt is made of polyester, cotton, spandex and it replies water. You can actually hold up your Okito Tri-Blend shirt, throw water on it and it’ll glide right off.
What I like most about Okito is their motto, “From thought to Finish. Okito strives to never stop until their goals are achieved. With a passion and sense of love for what they do, they plan to be fearless and to never give up. If you’re looking for a new contemporary, stylish brand, check out Okito.
