I think I’m up to like forty shirts. It’s crazy! I like that it’s made with hemp in the USA, something I want to support. Good vibes. Way better material than cotton. Feels good and knowing that it’s earth-friendly makes it feel even better. Current faves include: v-necks and hoodies. I wear the pants all the time…I’d get more. I’m just waiting on more. I like that they’re nice and plain and don’t have a bunch of logos. My girlfriend says they’re soft and sexy.
It feels like I'm wearing nothing, but I'm wearing something! It's like wearing an extension of ourselves…and they've gotten more comfortable over the years.

I live in Miami Beach but visit Santa Monica quite often to see my daughter. I never miss visiting your store to buy any new colors you might have; this week I bought 2 new tee shirts. I love your clothes; I have every color shirt. I have bought shirts for my husband, my daughter, my son and my best friend. Living in Miami Beach with 90+ temp. and almost as high humidity, I have found your shirts are my main wardrobe. They are cool, soft, and I can wear them anywhere. They do wick away moisture and never feel damp.
I love your clothing!!! It's just a silly shot of me wearing one of the many things that I bought when I was visiting a friend in Santa Monica California. Your clothing is absolutely amazing!!! :-) In this picture I was at a fundraiser with the bar that I work at on the weekends. The fundraiser was to support the annual Memorial Day parade because the town is threatening to cancel it next year due to lack of funds. I am living on Long Island, New York. This tee has got to be my absolute favorite. It is so comfortable. I also have the same one in hunter green as well as 2 tanks. They are all super easy to wash. No matter how many times I have washed them, they never seem to show any wear. I wish you guys had a store out here!
Ron had me try on a shirt and I loved it -- the softness hooked me. He presaged that I would be back for one of every color, and he was right!
Thought I'd share this pic with you. Love my Vital Hemp! xo
"These shirts are so soft and smooth that I never want to take them off! With such an incredible cut that feels form-fitted but at the same time with just enough space so it feels relaxed I think I have found my favorite clothing brand! And I really like the colors, very subtle earth tones that go well with just about anything. I bought my sister and her fiance each a shirt for Christmas and they could tell immediately how high the material and design quality was. I'm going to wear these hemp pants all around all the time - to dinner parties, sitting at the beach, falling asleep, etc. They go with anything, and although they only come in one size I was able to tailor them to the perfect fit for me in the tailor shop located in the back of the store. Definitely going to shop here again!"

"Hey Ron! Wanted to let you know my Vital Hemp shirt is by far my favorite travel T. Since I saw you last it's been through Brazil, Argentina, Antarctica & Chile and holding up like a champ! Thanks for making such an awesome product!!! "
"I wear my Vital Hemp garments as often as possible. They look and feel wonderful, and are versatile enough for work or play. I am comfortable knowing these clothes are sustainably sourced from 100% North American hemp, which stays soft, breathes, wicks sweat and doesn't get all smelly when I do. Wearing this combination of mindful design and material, I feel both classy and comfortable — and people notice. I am always happy to spread the good word and point them towards Vital Hemp. Thanks Ron!""
