Sleeve Clips 2.0 by English & Crowe Design™

 THE SUMMARY:

The product is called Sleeve Clips. They lock rolled-up sleeves where they belong - UP. Aside from knocking droopy, sloppy sleeves into extinction, Sleeve Clips look cooler than a James Dean ninja with an eyepatch riding a dragon into the sunset. They smell like billions, feel like glacial spring water and sound like Ole Blue Eyes after a tumbler of Bruichladdich. For almost a century, they've had cufflinks for old, boring people who don't roll-up their sleeves. Meanwhile, us cooler-than-polar-bears-toe-nails-folks who DO like to roll 'em up have been left in the cold. Well head to Dairy Queen and grab a blizzard, 'cause it's going to taste like a Coke on Christmas now that Sleeve Clips is turning up the heat and, finally, making cufflinks for those who roll. Get them while they're piping hot & farmer's market fresh, which of course means here and now. 

The patented design provides remarkable power in a lightweight and subtle form factor.  

THE STORY: 

IT WAS A HOT, ROLL-UP-YOUR-SLEEVES SUMMER IN LOS ANGELES...

..and there was a bartender named Alfred (famed for his vigorously shaken martinis). Alfred had zero tolerance for sloppy sleeves and their need for constant re-rolling. Hoping to combat this frustrating unfurling, he tried rubber bands, paper clips, binder clips and every other clip & apparatus known to man. Nothing worked, and they all looked like crap.

And so, the quest to create the perfect Sleeve Clip began.   A couple of years of hair-pulling and lots and LOTS of sleeve rolling ensued.

With the help of his mad-genius-friend Apollo, a revolutionary solution was finally devised: the world's first clip engineered specifically to lock sleeves in place. Thanks to awesome backers from Kickstarter, this solution is now available to everyone.

Alfred and the world's sleeves never budged again.

SOME IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT SLEEVE CLIPS:

Sleeve Clips have a large collection of unique designs to provide a distinctive and eye-catching element to your ho-hum sleeves. 

 Sleeve Clips are machined, crafted and assembled in the United States. Every Sleeve Clip is built with the finest materials, including high-grade stainless steel and springs made by the same manufacturer that makes springs for NASA.

Sleeve Clips 2.0.  Since our launch on Kickstarter, we've improved the assembly process to minimize an issue with adhesion of the design tokens.  We've also vastly expanded the available designs and figured out how to quickly and easily demonstrate How To Use Sleeve Clips.
