Have you ever wanted to help an underwear company come up with new pairs? Then you need to check out Garcon Model new Kickstarter campaign. Right now they are allowing people to vote for their favorite designs and then the most popular will be made into underwear. I can’t remember any brand putting up and letting their customers pick what should be included in their next collection. I think this is an amazing thing for them to do. How many times do we wish we could get our favorite brand to listen to our opinion?
I know there are many times when I want to say, hey do this. Luckily having the blog I have done this occasionally. Brands listen but I’d like to think I have more power in the industry, but there are still pairs I want to see made! But, Garcon Model is giving you that power, make sure you vote and give money to make this happen. They have some amazing rewards.
Here is part of the write up on Kickstarter:
Why Do We Need Your Help?
Your support (and yes by support we mean your money in exchange for sheer awesomeness), will allow us to keep moving forward. The more money we collect, the more styles we can manufacture and the more choices we can offer YOU!
Please support at whatever level you’re comfortable with. We’ll pay you back with some really fantastic underwear, crafted for comfort with super-high quality materials you’re going to love.
We’ve priced our REWARDS to make sure we bring you great value. Our goal is to get our product in the most hands and also to bring you the underwear you really want.
As a start up, we’re not able to compete with $2-3 underwear the big brands get. BUT what we loose in competitive pricing, we earn in quality control and ensuring we deliver you the best product we’ve encountered in men’s underwear. And, believe us, we’ve tried them all!
Here is the breakdown of what Kickstarter money will be used for:
- Manufacturing (40%)
- Freight (1%)
- Taxes (2%)
- Customs (9%)
- Photo-shoot (4%)
- Shipping (20%)
- Additional inventory (18%)
- Others: web hosting, merchant fees, storage, logistics, etc.. (6%)
Our goal is to reach $10,000 to bring 20 new styles to life. So help us out by pre-ordering your underwear today. And share with your friends to help us reach our goal.
The important thing to remember with Kickstarter is that we need to reach our full funding goal or we get nothing.
