Awww man...that sucks. I kind of lost touch with Nick, the owner. I had been working on the design for his signature gi for him awhile ago and never heard anything back. Sad to hear that they're going out of business.

I asked the owner, Nick Ciubatariu about it, here's his response:

 

Daniel Baker Nick, are you pulling out of the MMA game for good??
Rupture Clothing Dan, yes. The rising manufacturing cost of US-made goods makes it impossible to compete from a price perspective. We would never sell anything made overseas, so we had little choice. Thanks for all your help and support!!

Yeah, he was really excited about that gi.  I wondered what happened to it.

 

I haven't worked for Rupture for about a year and some change now but man they were a good company with some good people behind them.

Sucks to hear, seems like there are others ways to compete than price? There are quite a few handmade/sewn in town companies here in Portland, but granted this is a town that supports that stuff moreso than most.

Rupture is based out of Redmond, WA  (Suburb of Seattle).

 

I know after Nick has his daughter everything else seemed to take a backseat.  My personal feeling is he wants to be a father more than a guy who works too much.  Besides owning Rupture he also works as an engineer for Microsoft so I can see how this would eat his time.

 

Again, I'm not quoting his reasons but as a former employee and a personal friend it's just what I feel.

 

Still, his gear was amazing.  Look up the reviews online and ignore me if you wish but you'll find the company was well liked.  They also sponsor the Bullshido forums.

Yup, I think I phrased that funny as I realize they weren't out of Portland. Was just saying that it seems like there are other ways to compete but I think your statement about focusing on father vs. work plus having a day job make a ton of sense. Sucks to hear but fully understand not having enough time in the day to do everything.

All american made products with simple designs.

 

Ink bleeding so logos don't peal and crack.

 

Printed labels directly on the clothing.

 

Amazing quality rash guards and fight shorts.

 

Don't take my word for it though, I'm a former employee.  Just google "Rupture Clothing Reviews" and see what comes up.

 

Rupture was a family friendly company with some good people behind it and a top quality product.  We sold our gear for often far less than competitors who had their gear made overseas.

 

Nick was a big believer in American products and refused to take advantage of third world slave wages.

Please let them know this is pretty much their last chance to stock up on the gear and the prices are below cost for the company so the deals are about as good as they are going to get.

Rupture has been very good to the UG sponsoring several of the UGGP events and even sponsoring UG favorites like Tom Lawlor and Quincy Rice at different times.  We even made it to the championship when we sponsored Demian Maia when he fought Anderson Silva.

 

The owner is a great guy who truly cares about the consumer, sucks to see the company go to be honest.

Thanks for the heads up.  I'll contact Nick and see what's going on with that.

Those shorts look nice, if my three pairs of Sprawls would ever wear out and if a buddy didn't just bring me some shorts from Thailand I'd give 'em a go - though I'd probably be pissed that I found a new favorite pair of shorts and could never replace 'em

Hey guys, I talked to Nick again.

 

If anyone is having trouble ordering from the site then shoot an email to sales@ruptureclothing.com

 

Rupture has been flooded with orders and Nick wasn't aware of any issues but things happen so just hit him up there and he'll take good care of you.  If you still have problems then contact me here and I have a direct line of communication with Nick so I'll make sure you are taken care of if nothing else.
