It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up.

— Vince Lombardi

Words that echoed as we began the journey of re-building. After years of sharing the Oak + Oar story we came to a sudden and unexpected cross roads that forced us to re-evaluate our entrepreneurial future. Our options were concise. Move on from apparel design, an industry that was ingrained within us, or re-group, wipe the slate clean and pen the next chapter.

Voak Sportswear is that next chapter.

A sincere thank you to everyone who supported us from day one. You inspired, motivated and drove us on a daily basis. We wanted to pay homage to this community and after months of brainstorming we found our future. By taking the roman numeral V representing the 5 years we invested in Oak + Oar and amalgamating it with the lead word from the previous brand we had our future. Voak for us encompasses the relationships, spirt and support that has always been extended to us.

We're back up. And you can join us in this next chapter at voaksportswear.com
