MMA Fashion January 7, 2019 20:58
MMA fashion has been a grey area as most of the brands produce products that are standard for mma workout rituals. 1ON1 Clothing decided to take a different route in this industry.
MMA Fighters are fit athletes that have a swag outside of their work out lifestyle, so why provide them with only workout attire and not make sure we cater to their swag out on their streets? Now we dropped some rashguards in the past and we will be bringing new ones in 2019; however, our focus is on the outfits outside of the gym. Men and Women fighters have a nice physic and are up to date with the fashion trends and our focus is not just to be one of those mma t shirt brands that will bring you a t shirt and a rashguard.
We have a collection of t shirts, long sleeve shirts, hoodies, joggers, windbreakers, hats, snapbacks, leggings and tanktops. soon enough the variety of women streetwear collection will expand and is the men collection.
We are working closely with some of the top Los Angeles fashion designers that know whats in now and we want to make sure we are up to date with the fashion trend in this market.

MMA Brands Gain Publicity From Fighters January 4, 2019 16:37
Every streetwear brand starts around a culture. some start as a skater brand, some as a surfer brand and some just revolve around a pitch or an industry theme.
1ON1 clothing is a streetwear brand that started in the MMA world. MMA is believed to date back to the ancient Olympics of 632 BCE. Back to the martial training of the Greek armies.
Now, MMA has gained it's big screen recognition in the past 25 years which was the beginning of the UFC era. And now the sport is global and watched by fighters and non-fighters.
Every brand has caught some attention from the active fighters that got to represent the brand. For example, In the past, Affliction clothing had their affliction tee shirts represented by the hall of fame Randy Cotoure.Also, Bad Boy fight gear had the number 2 middle weight contender Alexander Gustafsson display their brand to the public in multiple events. Finally, 1ON1 clothing had their gear represented by champion Cris Cyborg and Pedro Munhoz and the list goes on ...
These famous athletes give a strong recognition to the brands as they are public figures. These public figures have a major fan base that will pay attention to what they do, eat and wear. All of that is to the benefit of the brands that work with the fighters.
In every streetwear culture, the brands capitalize on any love they can get from celebrities. wether it's a sponsorship deal or just a good event that the celebrity chooses to wear this brand. It's just one of the ways this brand will gain the publics trust and grow.

Fashion History December 27, 2018 10:42
The fashion industry has been around since the 16th century; However, the first fashion designer that made his own fashion pieces and had his name attached to a fashion garment was the English fashion designer Charles Frederick Worth.
Worth was the founded of House of Worth. He is considered by many fashion historians to be the father of Haute Couture and also he is credited with the revolution of the business of fashion.
In 1858, Worth established his fashion salon in Paris that attracted a lot royalty. In the 19th century,, innovative designers started making dresses that suit the everyday lifestyle of that time.
In 19th century, fashion magazines started taking part in displaying fashion pieces in help to put our the latest trends of that time.
And Now, we see how the world of fashion has grown thru globalization and social media. every country, city and community has a fashion style and evolves on a daily bases.

Quality Over Quantity December 24, 2018 18:53
The fashion industry is a huge industry. With the competition being real high we needed to take some specific actions to stand out. Besides the variety of designs and products, we focused on quality and authenticity.
Quality, the worse thing a shopper can face is buying something they love that doesn’t last for a long time. I personally shopped with big brand names ( i wouldn’t mention the names here ) and paid top dollars then they shrink by a size or two after the first wash. That was disappointing. Every brand has to stand behind their quality and that’s something we do.
We produce top quality because of two reason. First, we use top quality fabrics. They cost us a little more than the standard fabrics but it makes it worth it for our shoppers. Secondly, all our products are made of pre-shrunk fabrics. So the fabrics are pre-washed before they are cut and sewed and that brings the shrinkage down to a minimal after purchase. These two reason were the main backbone of returned customers to our brand and we are proud of such decisions as we see how it paid off.
Authenticity, anyone can make a shirt and place on it some fashion designer printing. That doesn’t show much effort put in each piece, also it facilitates the process for people to be able to clone these products.
Beside the efforts we put in the quality, we make sure to add some little touches to every piece to make sure our shoppers are getting the real deal. Most of our products will notice at least one to two custom made woven labels in every piece we make. The main woven label is always placed at the bottom of every shirt and recently we added a custom made official 1ON1 woven label to the back of the shirt. These labels add value to the products, increases authenticity and blocks the clones from approaching a high valued product.
A lot of up and coming brands take short cuts in these little extra efforts and will run into a wall as soon as they enter the market. Our advise from one brand to another, take the extra steps and give your customers a valued product. Your loyal fans will appreciate it and it will pay off on the long run.

How To Stay Dry This Winter? December 20, 2018 20:53
Not everyone knows how to deal with the winter season. Some people are used to it as they probably grew up in a place that winter is the norm. On the other hand, there are some people who are just not used to it, such as people who live in Los Angeles.
Now one thing we can show you is how to stay dry in a rainy day!!
Windbreakers are the answer. Our Windbreakers are made of some fabrics that water doesn't go thru which is good to keep your outfit fresh even when you travel from one place to another.
The secret to our windbreakers that makes it stand out from the other windbreakers in the market, is the coverage. Our windbreakers have a high neck that zips up all the way to the nose. with the pull over part of this product, you will pretty much cover your whole head and neck area.
Also, there are zip up pockets that your can hide your phone and belongings in that will keep them dry. The last thing anyone will need is to get their phone water damaged!!
Finally, the bottom of the windbreaker has a string that will tighten the bottom of this jacket and block anything that will enter from the bottom, wether it's some splashing water from the streets or even the simple wind that might take the warm feeling away.
In other word, stay warm and dry my friends by owning the 1ON1 custom made windbreaker which is available at:
Long Sleeve Shirts December 19, 2018 23:13
Making clothing products can be tricky, You have to make pieces that look good and serve a purpose.
As you all know, we are a Los Angeles based brand. And living in LA, we dont have a real cold winter. Like today we were walking around under 68 degrees weather in the middle of December!!
How does it effect our production? I will tell you how. Basically our winter hoodies will sell all around the United States and globally more than selling locally in Los Angeles, so we make sure we cater to both; Outside of LA and In LA.
Our mens fashion new long sleeve shirts were released 3 days ago and we are already sold out on couple of sizes. All sales were locally. Not surprised. As we ll know it serves the 68 degrees weather for all our local people.
For our local clients, don't worry we will re-stock the sold out sizes next Monday and for our nationwide and global clients. it's a great piece to wear under a jacket. it's light on the body with a smooth body fit. You will feel good and look good. Check out the pics below.
