UNHLY aims to provide fit, hang and function over anything else by developing a better fitting line of sweatshirts to be versatile in a wide array of situations.
We want to raise money to cover the costs of these needs. We want to design our products professionally and responsibly with those that are the best in their profession.

This project is to get us through the Sampling and Prototyping stage. Once we have sample products in hand our goal will be complete and we can move on to considering production runs with the manufacturers we decide provides us with the best quality samples.
Wear it from the office to the golf course, from the lake to the camp ground, from the duck blind to the river, from the skate park to the lounge.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The main challenge we faced was trying to take our ideas from sketch pads to industry standard pieces that could be manufactured into actual product. We had no idea how to start a brand or clothing company but knew we had an idea that we wanted to pursue.
After months of meeting with seamstresses, alterations shops and getting shot down when making it clear we wanted to make runs of product, we eventually found a sourcing agent that answered a lot of our questions. This solved many obstacles regarding what we needed to produce to get our product sampled.
With that we paid for a couple tech-packs to send to manufacturers to begin sampling. We still need to pay for numerous tech-packs and the costs of getting manufacturers to finish sampling with us.
That is the challenge immediately in front of us.
