Tempe entrepreneur, tennis coach, wedding photographer, and world traveler — Jeffrey Smallwood — is launching Restless Brand clothing company.
With its vibrant designs and can’t-be-missed logo, the apparel line, which includes t-shirts, with more styles and options set to debut in the fall, was designed to help inspire people — and to make them smile.
“I designed Restless to help inspire people to seek out the entrepreneurial spirit inside them. We all have it. Entrepreneurs spend a lot of time up at night thinking about the next thing they’re going to do or create. That’s the inspiration,” Smallwood said in a prepared statement. “You have to listen to that voice inside you and figure out how to get it out to the world. That’s the message behind Restless. Take a chance on life and don’t stop!”
Throughout his travels, Smallwood began to notice how people are caught up in their own worlds and don’t necessarily connect with one another as they go about their day.
But a slogan on a t-shirt or an eye-catching logo, such as his own featuring a smile with “Xs” for eyes, can stop people in their track and serve as a conversation starter. With his brand, he wants to bring a smile to people’s faces, he says.
Smallwood says he created the brand as a legacy he can pass down to his daughter while she’s young — and become something she can continue to build as she gets older.
Restless t-shirts are made with style and comfort in mind. Featuring myriad styles and colors, including classic black-and-white combinations.
Proponents at Restless anticipate the launch of its winter collection this fall. This line will include sweatpants and shorts, long-sleeve t-shirts, hoodies and more.
