We present to you the L1ft 0ff Longsleeve

What makes the L1ft 0ff Longsleeve special is that it is a combo of something old and new


Lil' 18 year old me launched the first @empireintheair tee from my dorm at SJSU in 2010. I would sketch designs in class, package orders in my dorm, give out orders in between classes.

A decade later and now Empire in the Air is a team of creatives producing sky-high inspired products and events highlighting the Bay Area community.


The L1ft 0ff Longsleeve is my love letter to the first tee ever and all the people that's helped build #empireintheair along the way since. It uses the neon green and cerulean blue from the original tee and, rather than one girl on a lift, it features seven lifts.

Six of the lifts are dedicated to each person in the original Empire Team


and the seventh represents our supporters who have pushed us to keep building-- from friends who've modeled/ danced/ sung and packaged and fed me (or reminded me to eat) to our supporters that proudly rep the message in their daily outfits... that last lift is for you.
