BAOBAB Clothing was founded by long-time friends Marcellus Alexander III and Brandon Davenport. The two were frustrated and annoyed with high-priced clothes that didn't last after a few wears and washes.
Our first shirt, the BAOBAB Polo shirt, is the first sustainable, performance luxury polo shirt that is resistant to shrinking, fading, odors, wrinkles. Thanks to our patent-pending "stay flat" no-curl collar we've eliminated the problem of "bacon collar".
We spanned the globe and spoke to countless vendors in search of sustainable materials. And not just sustainable for the environment, but for the many people who work to make these garments possible.
We located the best feeling and performing materials we could find, but always with the rule that it must come from a place that can sustain the resources. Our organic Pima cotton comes from Peru, and our hardware is hand-crafted in Italy.
Our journey to
the perfect polo
