WHAT IS WE-FLASHY?
We-Flashy is a line of retroreflective clothing built for contemporary sensibilities. It uses industrial-grade, ANSI-rated retroreflective material— the same kind crossing guards, police, and firefighters use.
We use clean, modern designs as our canvas, and add customized reflective elements to make you stand out. And since our reflective material responds to direct light, it’s great for use on busy streets—but barely noticed indoors. It also sends light directly back to a camera during flash photography, causing the garment to glow in photographs, making for stunning nightlife pictures and video.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Retroreflective material sends light back in the exact same vector as its source. For instance, headlights of a car would illuminate retroreflective material, the reflected light is directed in the exact direction of a car and its driver, not in all directions.
WHY ARE THE CLOTHES EXPENSIVE?
Most apparel companies using retroreflective elements only use it for small logos or trim. We-Flashy uses a generous amount of ANSI-rated retroreflective material to create entire patterns on our garments.
For instance, the Cube Sweatshirt's entire front is completely covered with retroreflective material. This is something that few companies would sell because it's so expensive to create. But, we think that sweatshirt is ridiculously fun to wear on the street and in photographs. So, we offer it. All because you Flashy.
We-Flashy clothing is made to order using high quality American Apparel garments and customized with retroreflective elements. You can tell your friends it's 'artisanal safety wear,' and no one would know if you were joking because it's made in Brooklyn.
WHY MIGHT IT TAKE 2-3 WEEKS TO SHIP?
To insure quality and eliminate waste, each piece is handmade in our Brooklyn studio. We take extra care to make sure each garment is just right so you feel extra Flashy when you're in it.
HOW DO I WASH IT?
Turn your We-Flashy garment inside out and wash on gentle cycle, cold water, mild detergent. No bleach, no whiteners. Dry in household dryer on low to medium setting. To prolong reflectivity and garment life, hand washing and hang drying is recommended. Iron inside out to smooth wrinkles.
DO YOU CHARGE US WHEN WE ORDER OR WHEN OUR WE-FLASHY SHIPS?
When you place your order, the full amount is charged even if your product hasn't shipped. Unfortunately, we do not have the mechanisms to accept a deposit.
WHY Y'ALL SO FLASHY?
We were born that way. You probably were, too.
