Kirk Shindle, born in Hagerstown, MD, worked as a visual merchandiser for more than 25 years designing windows, interiors, and showrooms for fashion houses including Giorgio ArmaniDonna KaranElie TahariEscada, and a slew of others.

Kirk has always been inspired by a great T-shirt since he was in his early 20s . . . he was the guy that had numerous people stop and ask him where he’s gotten such cool T’s.

As he worked for the luxury fashion houses he was inspired by the craftsmanship of the clothing . . .  the detailing . . . the texture . . . the extraordinary.

I thought why couldn’t I bring that into creating a luxury T-shirt and pullover line . . . and so Slant Evolution was born.
