About Official Patriot Gear
What started out with us making a simple t-shirt has now become an international brand and a movement that is growing each and every day with a message we believe is so important for all to hear.
In late 2020, Ian Wendt, our founder and CEO, saw an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of small businesses struggling to stay afloat amid the COVID-19 pandemic. He turned to his substantial social media following and asked for help to support a few small businesses.
His followers exceeded any and all expectations, coming together to raise tens of thousands of dollars in just a few hours, without asking about the beneficiaries’ political affiliations, religious beliefs, or backgrounds, and helping keep many small businesses open in the process.
This display of unity and kindness inspired Ian, and he wanted to give his growing community a way to show their support for small businesses and their love for their country.
The Patriot tee was born, representing the values of patriotism: love for one’s country, a desire for its people to be free and thrive, and a willingness to defend their freedoms.
OUR BRAND MISSION
Our goal and our mission has always been to create a community of people from every walk of life and every background with one common purpose -- Show pride and love for their country.
WHAT "PATRIOT" MEANS TO US
We truly believe that the word “patriot” is not limited to a certain type of person or group but that it is a word that describes each and every individual in this world that love their country, love the people who live there, want to see it thrive in every way and will work and fight to make it so.
