British inspired & American made. Our motto is "Look good, live better" - iconic clothing that's socially & environmentally friendly.
What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects. As always, Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands. So please share this page with your friends and family.
About Me / The Brand
I'm a graphic designer from England. I've been living in the USA for almost two years now, and I noticed the majority of British inspired products feature the Union Jack. Like many other's I'm a fan of the flag but feel there is more to the British identity than this overused icon. Twentypence Clothing is a way for me to express my creativity and share my Britishness with the rest of the world through simple iconic designs.
Our motto is "look good, live better". This really sums up what I want the company to represent. Quality clothing with a sense of social and environmental awareness.
Be a brand ambassador
Simple iconic t-shirts which have worldwide appeal.
I'm kicking off the brand with the classics. These can be worn with anything. Pledge $20, and you could be sporting one of our signature t-shirts.
The logo will be the starting point for all of our branded clothing. Whether subtle or obvious, our branded garments will be instantly recognizable.
More to come
With your help, we can add new designs and products to our brand. Many will have a British influence, such as the Icons Collection. These will be simple representations of things that remind me of Britain.
Look! Limited Edition...
For backers of our $50 reward you will receive an exclusive "Kickstarted" limited edition t-shirt. Inside the hangtag on this t-shirt there will be a real 20p coin.
We, you, they.
Twentypence began as an outlet for my creative ideas. Moving forward I wanted the company to be successful for myself and rewarding for others. A portion of sales will be donated directly to deserving local organizations.
You hear a lot about the bigger, well known charities who have large campaign budgets and exposure. As a small business I want to help the smaller charities that need support and promotion. We will feature them on our site and make it clear that with making a purchase you will be supporting a worthy cause.
All our t-shirts are 100% cotton slim fit American Apparel tees and are screen printed using eco-friendly inks. I decided to use water based inks and discharge printing as it gives a much softer, long lasting print and adds to the quality of our clothing.
For now, we will be stocking Men's sizes S, M, L and XL and Women's sizes S, M and L. You will be contacted if (fingers crossed) we're successful for your size requirements.
Make the most of our FREE shipping in the US, only for Kickstarter backers.
More than just t-shirtsI also wanted to show that Twentypence will be more than just a t-shirt company. Our accessories line is really taking shape. The prototypes are flooding in. With a focus on simple natural materials like cotton, wood and leather, there will be some unique products and designs which you will love! Here are some sneak peeks...
With your help, we can launch the Twentypence brand. You'll see from the rewards, the majority of your money will go towards inventory. We will print and ship your signature and Kickstarted t-shirts and stock the first of our new designs.
Anything left over will go towards developing our website and stocking new designs. The more support we get the more designs we can release. Keep checking http:///www.twentypence.com, http:www.twitter.com/20pclothing, and http://www.facebook.com/20pclothing for new designs and company news.
P.S. Here is a great clip about the history of the “Keep Calm And Carry On” poster. Arguably one of the the most recognized and timeless designs Britain has produced.
A 20p, pronounced twenty pence or twenty-pee is a British coin.
