About this project

 

 

 

The simplest way for a person to communicate their personality or lifestyle without speaking is through Fashion. Jackets/outwear (sometimes dresses) seem to be the most common form of this type of expression due to the amount of construction details required to execute each piece. Through extensive research of the Deconstruction/Reconstruction design aesthetic Motorcycles & Mason Jars has developed it's own method of design. This design method allows the brand to incorporate the same construction details oridnarily utilized in outwear into comfortable joggers.  

Just think about it, take a second and ask yourself what sets garments apart from one another. Shirts come in different styles such as t-shirts, dress shirts, polo shirts, etc. While jackets come in a wide array of styles such as rain coats, bomber jackets, motorcycles jackets and so on. With trousers you typically have a pair of pants that are normally separated by fabric selection and fit alone. The purpose of this project is to focus on trousers because they are the least personable item within daily wear. 

This project started out as a menswear project alone because Motorcycles & Mason Jars began as a menswear design firm.  Eventually the brand found it necessary to appeal to the female consumer. Throughout this design process womenswear was integrated into it's on category. It's hard, if not impossible to find a more affordable/inventive garment anywhere.

The purpose of this Kickstarter is to cover the remainder of the Manufacturing costs of Motorcycles & Mason Jars signature ‘Upside-Down Jacket Joggers.' The company has invested extensively in the construction on a mobile fashion showroom. The mobile showroom allows the brand to bring it's vision to a larger consumer market and potential retailers. This Kickstarter will also provide Motorcycles & Mason Jars feedback which could be beneficial to the brands growth. 'Feedback is heavily encouraged,'  the brand wants to communicate and learn from the consumer. Please help bring the remainder of this vision to life.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge for Motorcycles & Mason Jars, LLC was completing custom orders while simultaneously building this collection. Right now the company develops prototypes for other company’s and creates custom garments for clients. Motorcycles & Mason Jars was able to complete all orders on time or prior to the expected completion date. The company was able to accomplish this through the support of their talented network. All prototyping for this Kickstarter was done in house so the brand devoted long work hours in order to accomplish this task.
A major risk for the brand was the investment, Motorcycles & Mason Jars is a small business so every dollar counts. Financial investments were not the only obstacle the brand was forced to overcome. Pattern development and prototyping are very time consuming tasks. The company is structured around the concept of developing innovative products. These imaginative designs require countless hours of attention. Motorcycles & Mason Jars is prepared to devote all of their time to the disruption of this project if successful. The whole purpose of developing prototypes and custom garments was to help fund stock for the company’s mobile showroom. The only delay that could possilbly occur is coordinating efforts with the companies manufacture. The company is prepared to coordinate efforts with a backup manufacture if deemed necessary. Keep in mind that this is a new product to the market and while they hold similarities to traditional joggers the construction of these garments are completely different.
“I have always been creative and these design have been on my mind for years," said Walter. "Since 2005 when I feel in love with the punk aesthetic I knew I wanted to capture the same level of individuality with these joggers. Years of thought, hard work, and research allowed me to execute these designs and it’s no way I’m turning back now,”stated the designer. Motorcycles & Mason Jars wants its backers to feel comfortable Knowing that we will put our hearts and soul into the success of this product.
