With just 40 minutes to squeeze in a run after work, WOLACO founder Terry White reached a tipping point. The pre-workout checklist had grown too long – keys, credit card, phone, and headphones – he was fed up with the “process.” As a former athlete, those 40 minutes were his time to release – to let go for the day – and he was being held back. Cue the cliché conversation with roommates, cramped in a NYC apartment, and the concept of the North Moore Short was born: the definitive, all-in-one answer for carrying keys, cash, and a phone. Terry was determined to create a product that emulated its birthplace of New York City - be the best, and look good doing it.
12 prototypes later, WOLACO began in earnest in 2014 with a Kickstarter campaign (an Editor's Pick, btw) for the original North Moore Short. Since then, we’ve continuously upgraded our patented design, and have expanded our product offering across the athletic wear spectrum.
