Hi folks,

 

Check this Kickstarter that I came across: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dhawalshah/hucklebury-redefining-premium-menswear-backed-for

Made in USA premium shirts using Monti, Mason, Albini fabrics, crowdsourced at $78 with Free shipping.

 

Looks pretty good after reading all the blogger feedback. Your thoughts?

ZipBelt is on Indiegogo for 12 more days!

 

ZipBelt is an adjustable, no holes men's belt with a buckle that can be customized with any image or logo.

 

It has a track on the back instead of holes, 32 sizes in 1 belt instead of 5 and lasts many years longer than a holes belt.

Atelier Particulier

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Fulbert and I co-founded Atelier Particulier, along with Benjamin. We’ve been working for months on the concept, which could be sumed up as :

 

« A selection of fairly priced limited edition garments, produced in the same ateliers working for luxury labels. »

 

 

Each collection will highlight one piece of garment (ties, scarfs, belts, etc.) for a short period of time. They will be sourced directly from the very same French and Italian workshops working for the grandes Maisons. Because we will sell directly to you, on the Internet, with no marketing expenses or high street stores, we will be able to give you privileged access to pieces of clothing up to 2 or 3 times less expensive than what they would be in the traditional Maisons, for the exact same quality.

 

Our current collection of 3 French made scarves is available here, for one month only :

 

http://www.ulule.com/atelierparticulier

 

We have realised that more and more consumers are turning their back on the grandes Maisons, not because of the quality or their savoir-faire, but because they don’t want the price they pay to go to peripherical costs such as marketing that gives no value whatsoever to the garment itself. Atelier Particulier has grown from there.

 

Atelier Particulier aims at reconciling high standards pieces of clothing with fair prices. We are obsessed with the savoir-faire and the quality of clothing.

 

For instance, on this collection, by limitating fixed charges and our margins at a minimum as well as working directly with our partners, we have been able to keep the price at 40€, including worldwide shipping. Our scarves are made in France. As a matter of fact, a very well-known grande Maison we can’t name offers them at three times their price.

Feel free to follow us on Facebook : http://www.facebook.com/atelierparticulier2

 

We will do our best and look forward to answering all your questions and suggestions J

 

Talk to you soon,

 

Fulbert

Hi All, 

Buttons 'n' Threads is introducing the world's finest dress shirts through a crowd-funding campaign. Here is a preview link: http://bit.ly/crwdfund

 

The shirts we are planning on bringing to market start at $129, however there will be an early bird special price on the crowd-funding platform, so do sign up to get notified. 

If you have a look at the quality details you will notice that very few retailers offer such superior construction and fabrics. The few that do are priced over $300, namely brands such as Charvet and Fray. 

 

It would be great to get you all to support our project and in return we will offer you the finest shirts at a price that is affordable. 
Hoping to have you back us and support this project.

Interesting, although I think that you will face stiff competition, particularly in the online area, from established companies such as Charles Tyrwhitt, TM Lewin and (on a smaller scale) Harvie and Hudson.

They sound as though they could be decent value in Australia, as shirts from bricks-and-mortar premises in Australia are, in the main, horribly overpriced.

Indeed we will face competition from more established companies. However the companies that you have mentioned offer much lower priced shirts that do not reflect the quality of shirts that we are planning on bringing to market. We have modelled our shirts to compete with companies such as Charvet, Turnbull & Asser, Fray etc. 
These shirts are of extremely high quality as the details outline on our landing page. 
We would even go so far to say that if you can find another shirt of better quality at this price point we would offer it for free.
Essentially we want to create a market where men appreciate the quality of the shirts and have the opportunity to experience fine clothing without having to pay a significant amount of money.

Hi All, 

We had asked for your feedback earlier prior to the launch of our crowd funding campaign. 
We tried to incorporate a lot of the feedback that we received. 
We just launched our campaign on Indiegogo and would love to have you guys take a look. 
If you do like our product and the idea we would love to have you support us. 
Our shirts just got reviewed by Justin from The Fine Young Gentleman and this is what he had to say, "Perhaps the finest online custom shirts I have ever seen"

 

Would love you guys to help out by pre ordering or even just sharing with your friends and family. 


You can visit the campaign here

 

Thank you once again for all the support.

$130 (or even the discount price of $99) is a lot to ask for an unproven shirt. For that much or less, I can already get a shirt that I know is quality from Huge & Crye, Kent Wang, Brooks Brothers, etc etc etc. What makes you product inherently superior to the numerous other shirts at this price point? Even Luxire offers MOP buttons.

On second thought, after reading AFYG's review, I think I'm sold. This looks like a very interesting product offered: I look forward to hearing of your success.

Thank you very much Saigonesque. 
We have been researching on dress shirts for quite some time before arriving at this particular product and quality. You can trust that we do everything we can to uphold the quality that we claim to offer.

Thank you for the kind words though.

This is a bit tangential to the forum, but I'm trying to spread the word about a friend's Kickstarter for handmade ceramic pendant necklaces and earrings: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/logicalhue/logical-hue-ceramic-jewelry

Everything is made by hand in Philadelphia, PA. It's around 30% funded right now with about three weeks to go. All rewards should be in backers' hands in plenty of time for the holidays.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. You can also post comments and questions directly on the project page.

For a young professional coming out of college what kind of wallet would you prefer? the sleek style of a machine stitch or the more rugged looking, robust stitching of a saddle stitch. The reason I am asking is my friend and I are creating a wallet for Kickstarter, and we felt it was better for us to ask men interested in style, rather than just guess for ourselves. any information you can give would really help!
