63. Varsity Men: Vulnerable & Empathetic

Focusing on the fellas today… finally! We often cover equality on T&T and most of the time it is through the female narrative, because I am a woman after all. Today, we are talking all things men, their emotions, what it means to “be a man” and how that meaning in itself is evolving, thank goodness. I have noted the Netflix documentary, The Masks They Live In, many times as it’s an excellent example of the discussion and awareness of American society pushing masculinity on our boys that inevitably destroys them (in short). This a much longer conversation that Kris taps into as he exemplifies a modern, evolved man. He is the father of two boys, successful businessman, entrepreneur, speaker, and mission driven to update the conversation, awareness, and perception of “what it means to be a man”. 2020 has been a crazy year to say the least, there is no better time than now to question a better way, genuinely get back to your authentic self, and work to further evolve on the personal front. Our guys need the same empathy and space that our girls do. Kris kicks off the convo with a personal childhood story that sets the tone for the rest of the conversation. He is vulnerable, open, and willing to help and /or advise anyone that asks. This is an awesome cast for everyone, particularly parents of young boys. Enjoy!


What it means to “Be A Man”. A boy’s and a man’s perspective. Men’s emotion, vulnerability, empathy, sympathy, awareness. Stigma. Questioning a better way. Working with, teaching, and raising happy, self-assured men. Life evolution and awakening. Making lemonade from lemons. Entrepreneurship, community, and embracing self-love to make the world a better place.

Our Mission
At 1OH1 Exclusive, our mission is to create clothing that inspires men to be their best. Each product has a personality and story that reminds you of who you are and the man you want to be.

Helping you be your best.

You are a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses. We help you learn to take ownership of who you are, leverage your strengths, and improve on your weaknesses through a process that we call “going ROWG.”

Recognition – Ownership – Work – Growth (ROWG)
Going ROWG is a process of 

1. Recognizing both your weaknesses AND strengths. 

2. Taking ownership of who you are, both good and bad, and letting go of any blame or excuses.

3. Putting in the work to overcome your weaknesses and leverage your strengths. 

4. Experiencing the growth, and gaining greater success and happiness. 

Look and feel like a stud.

Every time you put on your 1OH1 shirt, you will look and feel like a freaking stud! What you wear has a huge impact on how you feel. Every time you look in the mirror you will see the best version of yourself looking back.

A premium brand your friends can’t get.
We love exclusivity and don’t want you to ever see someone wearing the same shirt or even the same brand. All of your friends will want one, but just because they can afford one, doesn’t mean they can get one, and they will never be able to get yours.

Only 101 shirts sold.
We limit our production to 101 prints per design, and 4 designs being available at a time. When a product sells out, it sells out for good. So, if you find a shirt that resonates with you, grab it fast before it is gone.
