YellowMan, the high-end tattoo clothing company founded in 2004, recently launched a sports clothing line extension called YMX (acronym for YellowMan Expression). YMX offers multifunctional clothing that bridges the gap between sports and fashion.
Founder Peter Mui started YellowMan under that premise that skin color should never be a barrier against social status. Peter saw the value of tattoo art as a vehicle to represent cross-cultural attitudes and pursued the concept of creating wearable tattoo art.
The YMX sports clothing line is made from lightweight, MadKool fabrics with the same YellowMan detailed, original, tattoo inspired prints. Tattoo styles from around the world including Japanese Iresumi, Maori Tribal, American Traditional, New School, Biomechanical and Buddhism are translated into wearable designs for various types of sports clothing.
MadKool technical fabrics efficiently move sweat away from the body to the outer layer of the fabric where it dries faster than with other fabrics. In addition, MadKool fabrics regulate your natural body temperature so you will stay warm in cold weather activities and cool when you are working hard.
MadKool fabrics offer UV protection so you don't have to worry about increased sun exposure while you are enjoying the outdoors. The YMX sports clothing has a lot of stretch, holds its shape, is abrasion resistant and the colors of your prints will remain vibrant even after washing.
The YMX tattoo inspired sports clothing line currently features base layers, hoodies, and cycling jerseys for men and women. Prices range from $89 for the leggings to $128 for the men's cycling jerseys. All items can be bought from the company website or from select retailers.
