Press Release - Startup
Problem solved for every guy who has ever worked out carrying a phone
WOLACO, an innovative men’s short launched on Kickstarter, evolves into a premium fitness brand by relying on pure grit and smart budgeting.
NEW YORK, NY, (08/01/17) – These shorts will probably make you say, “Wait, how didn’t this already exist?” WOLACO's overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign launched 3 years ago, and Harvard lacrosse alumnus Terry White has not looked back.
Terry developed WOLACO as a lifestyle brand: his goal for the company is to embody the passionate, active individuals that wear the products and live "the grind." In turn, when building the brand, he has emphasized smart, effective spending. To this end, WOLACO has been self-sufficient thus far, giving Terry the confidence to bring in outside capital and put it to work.
WOLACO's first product, The North Moore Short, is named after the street in TriBeCa where the original concept was born. These shorts have served as a wedge for the young brand as it has gathered some footing in the highly competitive fitness apparel space. In fact, the stability of the North Moore Short allows the design team to find near-perfection before unveiling new products such as the High Line Hood and Fulton .75. This is the kind of scrappiness that Terry and WOLACO rely on: cut corners when possible, but never, ever if the customer loses out because of it.
In addition to being highly practical, WOLACO also focuses on beauty. “There is a fine line between understated and bland. We’re looking to stay far from bland; a unique hybrid of loud yet conservative,” says Terry. "Our focus is function-first, once we nail down the perfect fit, we make sure our products inspire confidence inside and out."
WOLACO intentionally sources premium materials and labor for its supply chain. The compression spandex is imported Italian fabric, and all of the manufacturing takes place in the USA.

About the Founder
CEO and Founder Terry White of Summit, New Jersey, set out to build WOLACO’s foundation with a lifestyle focus. White, a standout lacrosse player at Harvard University, grew up playing multiple sports and has attributed his success thus far to the discipline learned playing in and preparing for all kinds of athletic pursuits.
It was while living and working in New York City that Terry realized the need for increased functionality in his performance apparel and drew up the first sketches of the North Moore short.
The rest, as they say, is history.
