Timoteo is an American-produced brand with fashion, fit, and function at its core. They offer two rises in their underwear line, and both are ideal for even the lowest-rise jean. The underwear and swimwear conform to the same cut and fit so that when you buy a Timoteo garment, you know exactly what you're getting. Timoteo keeps it simple, never boring.
The Timoteo line strives for great fashion appeal, but also understands that the fit, cut of the silhouette, and level of comfort are the key to its success. All styles have a low rise so that they look great on their own and don't inhibit the rest of your clothes. All Timoteo products are produced to the same quality standard with an emphasis on consistency. Everything Timoteo produces is Made in USA.
Timoteo draws on color and sportswear as its inspiration. Every day is different, and you never know what mood you'll be in. So every boxer brief, trunk, brief, thong, and fashion jock is offerred in an array of colors, because some days are red or yellow, and some days are purple and black. Every piece of Timoteo, including underwear and swimwear, is made of fine quality materials and manufactured in the USA.
The line is designed by Timoteo Ocampo, an American designer based in Los Angeles, California. Timoteo went to California State University, Los Angeles and received a Bachelor’s degree in Art with an option in Fashion Design. While he was still a student he learned the finer aspects of craft in internships with fashion lines Richard Tyler, Moda Cad, Lori London Millinery.
After graduating from school he began designing the XOXO Knit sportswear line. Following that he worked closely with Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons as Head Designer to create the Baby Phat line. At Baby Phat Timoteo helped develop that signature Baby Phat look for the first, full contemporary collection comprised of knit, woven, denim, and leather pieces.
After a number of successful years of designing women’s wear Timoteo would go on to open his own men’s specialty retail store in West Hollywood, California in October of 2001. Carrying a variety of clothing lines, it gave him the opportunity to bring in an eclectic fashion forward selection to his customers. It was in that shop that Timoteo the fashion line got its start. In addition to the fashion lines the store carried, Timoteo produced his own contemporary men’s collection that carries his name, TIMOTEO. The collection consists of denim, dress shirts, fashion tees, and a variety of accessories, especially underwear. In 2006, swimwear was added to the TIMOTEO collection.
Timoteo loves his English bulldog, Jackie, who is an inspiration to various designs such as the Jackie Bulldog Tees and accessories. Timoteo is also an avid surfer and volleyball player, both indoor and beach, which has contributed to the design of his swimwear collection. Timoteo underwear and swimwear have a lot of fans that love the low rise look and comfort of the fabric and design that is reflected in the briefs, boxer briefs, trunks, fashion jocks, and thongs.
