Voy-Voy Makes Business Fun [Hands on Review]

by Heather Abbott on September 3, 2012

New York t-shirt brand Voy-Voy is making casual menswear fun while contributing to our global society.

Finally, an indie brand has taken the popular printed pocket t-shirt to a new and exciting level. The difference? Voy-Voy’s shirt pocketing (not the topped on pocket itself, but the inside) is printed, so it works as a colorful surprise detail, but also as a pocket square – just pull the pocket lining outward and style!

For every Voy-Voy product sold, 10% of the sale is invested in micro-lending projects around the world. Micro-lending like the kind Voy-Voy is practicing can help build profitable small businesses for low-income people and can even help send kids to college. So, while you’re purchasing your rad t-shirt, you’re helping someone else in the world afford something, too – and that something could be life-changing.

As for the shirts themselves, the designs are simple and clean. A single-screen print can go a long way, and the touch of upper class in the embroidered logo and the printed pocket lining easily takes this style from streetwear to menswear.

The prints are made of environmentally neutral dyes, which means they cut down on the amount of toxic effluent that results from the synthetic dye process. The shirts are also sewn with hand-selected Peruvian cotton which proves to be more lightweight and breathable while still remaining more durable than other alternatives.

Overall, the product and shipment from Voy-Voy is top-shelf. They even included a personal note and a few stickers – a total win on my scoreboard of personal branding.
