The Polo-X is a cutting-edge shirt with graphene integrated into every fiber. Empowered with the strongest, thinnest and toughest material yet discovered, every seam on the Polo-X is laser-cut and welded, offering unrivaled levels of comfort and performance by not using a single stitch in its construction.
Graphene-X was born on Kickstarter in 2019 and since then we haven't stopped. The Polo-X is our 8th product launched and will be our 3rd Kickstarter campaign.
Can we brag a bit?
With over 3.000 Kickstarter backers and over 8.000 clients across the globe, we have delivered ALWAYS ON TIME (even in the middle of a pandemic) and on QUALITY (4.95 product rating out of 5 speaks by itself).
We are old-school believers in punctuality and in honoring our word. If we say something, we will literally move every single rock in the world to stand behind our promises.
The Polo-X is engineered to offer unparalleled versatility. Imagine the most advanced technical tennis shirt ever made, which also looks like an Italian high fashion shirt in a formal meeting but which is the most comfortable piece of gear you have in your closet for when you hang out with friends and family. It's the only polo shirt to fit every bill and fit in on every occasion. All this - in one single shirt.
Engineering the fabrics for the Polo-X started with hundreds of iterations where the world's strongest and thinnest material, Graphene, was always at the center. The wonder material had to be perfectly isolated and then applied to enhance the rest of the fibres - leading finally to the proprietary fabric that we have developed here.
Creating this unique, innovative fabric was a titanic task, but hard work pays off: no other fabric can offer all of these benefits:
Having perfected the fabric, we knew that there are some design key points to make a polo shirt great. Let's study them and see how the Polo-X sets a new standard:
Really, we wish you could reach through the screen and touch it.
Graphene excels at radiating heat, and its Far Infrared (FIR) radiation profile is almost identical to that of the human body. That means it is exceptionally efficient at managing and dissipating body heat. The upshot is that the Polo-X keeps you warm when it’s cold and keeps you fresh when your body is working hard.
The Polo-X wicks perspiration away from your body, helping you to cool down when it’s hot but keeping you dry and warm when things get colder. And Graphene is hydrophobic, meaning it doesn’t absorb moisture but dries quickly, ensuring you can keep performing at your peak throughout your day.
Copper and silver are becoming known - and used in fabrics - for their antibacterial properties. It’s less well known that Graphene has excellent antibacterial qualities too - but at Graphene-X we want to let the secret out. By integrating Graphene in the Polo-X we are putting an extra barrier of protection between you and the world that could inactivate 98% of bacteria and even kill over 90%of them even after being washed hundreds of times. If bacteria can't grow, then you get a shirt that can be worn day after day, workout after workout and still not start to smell.
At Graphene-X we take environmental responsibility as a must. With this, we have been Climate Neutral certified since the beginning of our operations.
But even more important than this, is the irrefutable fact that the best way to be sustainable in this industry is to produce clothing that lasts. Like, for a lifetime.
Graphene is the cornerstone of the durability of our goods and the best tool we have to be a sustainable brand.
And by being members of the Graphene council, Graphene-X joins titans as Ford, BASF, and LG in the world's biggest consortium of companies that are developing revolutionary products with Graphene. We only work with Graphene producers that are members of this Council to assure that only the best - and most environmentally sound - Graphene is used in our products.
At Graphene-X we are proud to have some of the savviest backers and clients around the world. By knowing what Graphene is, you already belong to the 0.1% of the people who know the potential of this material.
We want you to choose us because you have absolute confidence in our commitment to quality, performance, and innovation - and for this, we don't need to make your shirt a billboard of our brand. A subtle black-on-black printed logo is the only branding our shirts have so only you (and other Graphene-X aficionados) know the difference between what your choice and the rest of the world’s.
If you are looking for a design where the horse, crocodile (or respective animal) is bigger than the person using the shirt, then that’s not what we’re about.
Legendary French tennis star René Lacoste found traditional tennis whites to be too stiff and restrictive for him to play well. So he set about on a mission to create a shirt that would still look great while being comfortable enough to play winning tennis. The result was a short-sleeved shirt with an unstarched, flat, protruding collar, a buttoned placket, and a shirt-tail longer at the back than the front. He first wore it at the 1926 US Open and it has been popular ever since.
In the years that have passed, many other brands and designers have made the polo shirt a staple of their collections, cementing its place as a truly essential piece of menswear.
Today, we are becoming part of the story of this classic garment. We believe the Polo-X is by far the most advanced polo shirt ever manufactured. Extreme performance, luxury look & feel, and unrivaled technology set the Polo-X apart.
With good care, it will last a lifetime and will always be ready to jump into an adventure if the occasion arises - or to boss it in the boardroom, or just chill with friends and family.
Now: are you ready to change things again?

The new Layer-X short sleeve is here and will be offered exclusively to our Kickstarter backers. This iconic t-shirt comes with improved materiality and a black-on-black subtle logo to offer absolute aesthetics.
The original Layer-X sold 6 months before our estimations and we believe the first production of this new version will go even faster.
So, why don't we just produce more?
Because we are producing as much as we can considering the complex process we have to go through to make it happen. Production times of over 3 months and probably the most advanced fabrics ever don't help in our lead times, but on the other hand, and as in almost everything in life: good things take time and are not abundant.
As you all know by now, backers from our crowdfunding campaigns are our most valuable asset (we consider you as angel investors). Is because of you, that we get to be here living the dream of having as a job the development of revolutionary products to add some sauce to your daily life activities. We think it just makes a lot of sense to have a loyalty program that would benefit our backers in a way no other Kickstarter-funded company has done so far. We like number 1 😎☝️
So, how does it work and what are the benefits???
For every Kickstarter campaign we launch and you back, you get a BADGE. This badge, besides being a pretty cool collectible that will be sent along with your Polo-X shirt will give you access to an 8% discount on our online store... ACCUMULATIVE UP TO 3 CAMPAIGNS! AND VALID FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!
This basically means that if you support 3 of our campaigns you'll have a no-limit 24% discount on our online store forever (non-transferable benefit).
With this, we will have 3 tiers in the program:
For the future Tier 1 backers: For every other campaign you back (C#4, C#5, etc...) as you won't be able to keep accumulating discount % on the store, you'll be getting a limited edition gift especially crafted for you for every other campaign backed.
As in most ventures, the first years are the toughest ones, so this program will only be offered for Campaigns #1, #2, #3 (this one), and #4 as an appreciation token for those who believed in us and shared our vision from the beginning.
