J. Shotmeyer was started out of a desire for both Jenna and myself to not only to create beautiful and stylish clothes but also to create a culture of giving. For me, I was home recovering from Testicular Cancer. I had been diagnosed, treated and declared cancer free all in about less than a couple months. Needless to say, I wanted to give back to cancer research and awareness and, specifically, Testicular Cancer. That is why our first bow tie, The Charles, and the ties since, were dedicated to giving back to The Testicular Cancer Society.
Along with the ties, each one of our spring and fall lines gives back to a unique charity. The clothes designed in the line are developed to not only help others but bring a smile to your face as well. We know that not every day is going to be easy, but by wearing a shirt that is helping the homeless or throwing on a tie that battles cancer you can confidently go through the day knowing that you have helped someone. You are making a difference and that will brighten up any day!
Although all of us cannot travel & help everyone, here at J. Shotmeyer we will be researching & highlighting people with unique experiences & share in their lives by giving back to some amazing causes & meeting some amazing people along the way. We hope you join us and if you have a story you'd like to tell let us know HERE. It's sure to be an incredible ride!
