191 Unlimited was founded in 2002 with $191 and a dream. Long time best friends Parth Sharma and Girish Karnani took $191 to the casino and turned it into enough money to launch their first 191 Unlimited collection. The two college grads then loaded the samples into their car and went on a 2 month trek from NY to LA and back, stopping in as many cities as possible to show their line to specialty stores.
The founders had 4 original principles by which they wanted each shirt to be made: 1) Awesome Fit, 2) Extreme Comfort, 3) Innovative Detailing, and 4) Affordability. 191 Unlimited still employs these 4 core principles in the making of all of its products.
What Did I Think?
More importantly, what did my husband think? We were both very happy with the quality of the fabric and stitching. I think the shirts will hold up to washing well just because of the sheer thickness of the fabric. The sizes run a little small so make sure to order one size more than what you normally would. Most of the styles are very contemporary which doesn't fit my husband's personal style but we were able to give the shirts to a younger kid in our community who's family doesn't have much money. He was thrilled to receive these shirts and they look great on him! Over all, I would recommend 191 Unlimited to anyone searching for good, quality clothing with a little extra zing for a man or boy!
Where Can You Buy One?
191 Unlimited sells their shirts on their website as well as retail outlets such as Nordstrom, Macy's, Bloomingdale's and Dillard's just to name a few. You can search for the nearest store here.
