Alex was interviewed by GiReviews.net

GiReviews.Net: Tell us the story of how and why you started Sleeve And Collar and what your motivations were entering an already saturated marketplace? Alex: Sleeve and Collar started as blog idea for my partner Richard Semides. He actually started with gi reviews. I told him what a shitty idea that was and…. just kidding. He was doing the blog thing for a little bit and one day we were watching a Fight to Win or UFC event and our core group of friends was hanging out and we shot the shit about gi companies and what we would change or do different.

Holidays are quickly approaching

So you may have been wondering why we don't do regular sales....  We don't find value in products that are always on discount.

We also had a team mate compete wearing our Onyx gi as pictured below Matt Schellenschlager was able to walk away with the decision victory in his hard fought match. Check the archived footage on FloGrappling if you would like to watch either of these guys matches or any of the matches from that...
