About this project
Sweat Tailor was established with one simple goal - to create the ultimate pair of pants. We found it challenging to find a pair of pants that were not only comfortable, but also suitable for practical, everyday use.
Most companies we buy jeans and pants from leave sweatpants as an afterthought resulting in ill-fitting, sloppy-looking sweatpants. On the other hand, high end designers who focus on the fit and style of their sweatpants sell an unreasonably expensive product that can cost several hundred dollars.
Traditional sweatpants come in S, M, L, XL, XXL, etc. Normally this would not be an issue, however the inside of a pant leg - called the inseam - typically measures 32 inches on most pants and will not increase until the size of the pant reaches XL or XXL. This means that if you wear a medium, whether you are 5’5” or 6’5” you are buying the same inseam. This makes no sense!
We started by combining the fit and craftsmanship of impeccably tailored jeans with the comfort of your favorite pair of sweatpants.We then graded the pants based on your ideal waist and inseam sizing so we can offer you the perfect fit straight out of the box.
Countless hours were spent sourcing the perfect fabric, fine-tuning patterns, testing dyes and then adding functional pockets, custom buttons and zippers. We made sure that even the most minute details did not go unnoticed.
Whether you're working out, hanging out or going out, we believe our 5 Pocket Sweatpant is the perfect universal pant. It is our hope that the final product will be your new wardrobe staple. A pant you can wear everyday and everywear.
Base Fabric - Comfortable custom cotton blend in a beefy French Terry construction with a small amount of spandex for comfort and recovery made here in the USA. We met with countless fabric mills until we found the perfect fabric that is not only comfortable but also durable. The fabric is a durable blend that we expect to hold up wash after wash.
We’re offering our 5 Pocket Sweatpants in two cuts. The Regular fit is a modern take on the classic 5-pocket fit. Our Skinny fit, compared to the Regular fit has a slimmer silhouette from the hip to the leg opening.
Your 5 Pocket sweatpants will be available in waist sizes 28, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 36, 38, 40. We are also offering inseam sizes for each waist size in 30, 32, 34 and 36. These sizes will accommodate your body with the tailored fit you deserve. For all of the specific measurements, check out our sizing chart below.
In order to do this right and make the highest quality product possible, we needed to work with the absolute best in the industry. Well, we found them and we want to give a big thank you to our fashion consultant Saundra Saulnier, pattern maker Helga Solrun, our creative director Travis Lee, video production by Sammy Smith, Jeremy Cohen and Ed Gutentag and music and scoring by Aj Pyatak.
Risks and challenges
Timing and delivery of fulfillment on the date promised is extremely important to us. We have nailed down our manufacturing and suppliers, so the good news is that the development process is 95% finished. With a couple of finishing touches, we will be ready for full scale production, which is scheduled to be completed by October 2014.
That being said, because we are offering so many different size combinations, there are still possibilities for delays. This is not expected as we have already figured out a solution to expedite the process.
Of course you can! For example, if you want to buy our biggest package which is a $389 pledge, you could pledge that amount plus as much as you want i.e. $1,000,389.00. We certainly do not expect people to do this, but surely will not turn it down either :)
Buy these based on your ideal jean size. If you are not sure have yourself measured for both waist and inseam sizes. We want to make sure you get the best product possible!
Currently we have Black, Gray and Olive, but we are looking to add more colors soon. We would love your feedback on what you would like to see next.
We are looking to introduce a women's line in the future. We already have prototypes made, but are focused on perfecting our men’s pants first. By the way, we think our men’s sweatpants look great on women.
We are more than just thinking about it. We have the prototype for a “loose” sweatpant complete. When the time is right, we will be offering them.
If we meet our goal, we will send you a short form to get all this info from you. If we hit our stretch goal of $75,000 we will also offer Navy Blue. Let's do it!
We ask that when you supply your measurements, that you provide your "true to size" measurements. If you do not know your waist and inseam measurements, please
be sure to have yourself measured. We want you to receive pants that fit your body perfectly. If your pants do not fit, send them back within 30 days and we will supply a free exchange. For international customers, you will have to pay the shipping costs, including duties. The pants must be returned in original condition, unwashed and in their original packaging. Due to the custom nature of Sweat tailor's products, exchange times may vary. However, we will get them back to you as soon as possible.
We do. Shipping international will be a flat rate of $30. Our domestic shipping is included in the pledge amount.
Delivery is scheduled to be completed by October 2014. That being said, because we are offering so many different size combinations, there are still possibilities for delays. This is not expected as we have already figured out a solution to expedite the process.
Our model Cameron is 6'2, 185 lbs and is a 32 waist and 32 inseam. For most of the video, Cameron is wearing our "Skinny" fit. He is wearing our "Regular fit" about 20 seconds into the video when he is walking and carrying a work bag. He is also wearing our "Regular" fit on our video "Project Image" and on our landing page at www.sweattailor.com.
By the way, Cameron is not just our model--we brought him on as a consultant as well because of his expertise in fashion, social media and branding.
