The Inspiration

After years of wearing dress shirts, I had accumulated a large pile of flimsy mismatched plastic collar stays.  They are all different shapes and sizes, weak and easily warped.  Getting a proper fitting pair of stays was always a challenge.  And on many occasions my shirt collars looked imbalanced or just plain sloppy.  But the biggest problem of all was the time and effort wasted, searching thru them each day.

Spending just one minute a day; 5 days a week searching is 4 hours a year wasted, sorting thru collar stays.

The Innovation

As an engineer, I wanted to develop a high quality product that would represent a superior option for dress shirt wears around the globe.  So I dedicated myself over the last several years to making the world’s best collar stay.  It had to solve the sizing problem, save valuable time, enhance a shirt’s appearance and help stabilize the collar during windy and active days.  

The path was extremely difficult but thru passion and perseverance, CLEVERFIT became a reality.

CLEVERFIT Saves You Time and Effort

Engineered to be the instant and permanent upgrade to the older restrictive fixed stays, CLEVERFIT’s precision interlocking geometry gives you one powerful solution for all of your sizing needs.

No more time consuming searches, CLEVERFIT’s “quick-click” fingertip adjustment gets you ready in seconds!

It's Simple and Fast!

CLEVERFIT: How To Video

CLEVERFIT Unlocks the Secrets to Better Looking Shirts

Secret #1: A More Structured Collar

CLEVERFIT can be adjusted to provide tip-to-neckline support for all traditional collar sizes.This unique ability eliminates weak zones and balances the correct amount of length and strength for every fabric type.

Secret #2: A More Stable Collar

By using the science of leverage; CLEVERFIT can become a collar stabilizer in the extended position.  It’s simple really, when adjusted to fit snugly between your tie and the underside of your shirt collar; CLEVERFIT acts like a counterbalance, limiting wiggle and maintaining your collar’s natural position.

Engineered to be the longest collar stay in the world at full extension, CLEVERFIT allows the stability feature to be used with all dress shirts, regardless of size.

CLEVERFIT Solves Common Collar Problems 

Most collar irregularities can be tied to flimsy or poorly sized stays.  CLEVERFIT’s patent pending design eliminates these problems and enhances your collar’s appearance.

A Perfect Case

Keeping track of collar stays can also be a challenge. So I designed the CLEVERFIT custom travel case to be the perfect time-saving organizer.

Fingertip grooves make it easy to snap them in and out and the ergonomic design keeps them safe and secure and ready when you need them.

The Journey To Kickstarter

I've had many extraordinary challenges to overcome in the past few years.  Multiple prototypes have been designed, tested and then re-engineered, again and again.  Patents, trademarks and copyrights have been filed.  Numerous manufacturing methods have been evaluated. Logistical channels have been established.  And a solid plan has been developed with the help of a network of hard working, very talented people to build a foundation for launching CLEVERFIT.

But the most important element in this fantastic journey is that I can proudly say, "CLEVERFIT is absolutely the best collar stay in the world".

Kickstarter Capital Plan

CLEVERFIT is ready to be manufactured.  All of the design specifications have been approved.  Final prototype samples have been received and evaluated.  And a detailed quality control program has been implemented.  CLEVERFIT has met and exceeded all of my expectations and I can't wait to send you your very own set!

I am honored to have you support the CLEVERFIT campaign.  And as a Kickstarter launch team member, your participation will allow the following things to happen:

  • Finalize acquisition of full production tooling
  • Acquire sufficient raw materials to expand our initial production run
  • Design, develop and finalize retail packaging
  • Expedite our shipping and delivery schedules 

                                              Estimated Ship Date: November 2013  

                Just in Time for the Holidays!

The Perfect Present!

CLEVERFIT is the ideal gift for anyone who wears collared dress shirts.  And if you have a special event or wedding planned, don't forget to honor your groomsmen with their very own CLEVERFIT Ambassador Set.

Risks and challenges

Every business, entrepreneurial or otherwise requires diligent planning and the ability to find feasible and reliable solutions to unexpected problems. My combined background in both engineering and the financial industry has provided a solid foundation from which to analyze and overcome many of the challenges facing a start up enterprise.

There have been many difficult decisions I've had to make over the past several years. But none of what I have accomplished, could have been done without building a network of trust and cooperation with so many wonderful people along the way.

Today, with the help of fantastic Kickstarter supporters such as you, I can confidently say that the future challenges will be very manageable. In my heart, I feel that the main challenge will be to manage the manufacturing process to ensure that quantities meet expected and hopefully, expanding demand. Retail packaging concepts will evolve with valuable feedback from potential distribution partners. But overall, I do not expect any insurmountable obstacles in our way.

CLEVERFIT's path from production to shipment is clear. And I and my fantastic group of dedicated professionals are ready to go!
