A small independent clothing company with big ambition and big ideas needs your help to pursue our creative dreams!
Our Story JAQK Apparel was born out of a simple concept: keep at least one eye open at all times. Inspired by our formative years at summer camp, comprised of nightly raids of girls’ cabins, rafter-ball, and being thrown in the lake, one aspect remains crystal clear. His name was Jack, and he was an eccentric renaissance man straight out of the backwoods of Ohio. Jack, unlike any other counselor or twenty-something we admired at the time, curiously slept with one eye open. We can only assume that he had at least one eye open at every moment of his life.
Though his current whereabouts are unknown, Jack lives on in JAQK Apparel. While summer camp is over, there’s no rush to grow up. We at JAQK Apparel say eat, drink and be merry and place no trust in tomorrow… always with at least one eye open.
About Us We're a clothing company based in Maine and are planning on creating something fun, playful, exciting, and beautiful. Not interested in falling by the wayside as just another "urban clothing company", our ideas stretch beyond stale and generic T-shirt designs. Beyond the physical products of labor and creativity, JAQK Apparel is a movement and mindset of sophisticated playfulness.
Our Plans We plan to use funding raised here to support the next two seasons of apparel. Plans include custom fit shirts of our own stitching and design, outerwear and accessories (including hats, jackets, belts), and dress shirts and pants. Our initial capital will directly be used for the Winter and Spring lines of JAQK Apparel. A small sampling of designs for these seasons can be found here as a pdf.
As a small, yet somewhat established company, we have been partnered with an apparel printer in Vermont for the past year. Our initial graphic designs have received praise from store owners, designers, and musicians alike. Plans for the new lines and direction of JAQK Apparel are secured and will begin the day our goal is reached.
