First of Its Kind
The first Coregami product, the Gershwin, is the world’s first moisture-wicking high-performance tuxedo shirt.
Since Coregami’s 2015 launch, numerous world-class publications have highlighted its success, including The New York Times, The Times of London, The BBC, The Washingtonian, and NBC. Today, some of the world’s finest symphony musicians wear the Gershwin.
It all started with a simple idea -- make a better tuxedo shirt.
We wanted performance shirts that were formal and comfortable. Shirts that wicked perspiration from our skin instead of absorbing it. Shirts that provided a wide range of motion and enhanced our performance under the world’s brightest and hottest spotlights.
At Coregami, we conceived of performal™ apparel and made this dream a reality. These remarkable garments keep concert artists cool, dry, and active throughout intense live performances.
The design and engineering of our Coregami apparel are complex, but our mission is simple: provide innovation and inspiration to all musicians.
Meet Our Founder
Kevin Yu, the creator of Coregami, is a leader in the performal wear movement. As a student at UT Austin McCombs, he worked at various startups by day while he served as the concertmaster of the University orchestra by night. Over the years, he has worked at Cisco Systems, KPMG, Atmos Energy and other startups while balancing his schedule as a professional violinist with the Las Colinas Symphony .
Bothered by the incredible discomfort of his concert tuxedo and the lack of alternatives, Kevin became obsessed with re-thinking and re-imagining formal wear. After creating countless prototypes, he finally failed his way to a solution. But that would only be the beginning. The success of the Gershwin tuxedo shirt ignited the performal wear market and positioned the company to disrupt an industry that has not been updated since its inception.
Stay Tuned. The show is about to begin.
