TWO New Stretch Goals!

Ten days to go on Kickstarter, and the final countdown has officially begun!

The past three weeks have been an incredible ride for us. We cannot express how much we appreciate your support, and how exciting it has been to watch the MoS community grow every day. Thanks for being part of it!

But we aren't done yet. We are announcing not one but TWO new stretch goals as we start the countdown to July 11.

STRETCH GOAL 1:   $200,000

If we hit $200,000 by the deadline, we are set to introduce a little pattern into the MoS dress shirt collection. We think this would be a really cool option to offer in addition to the extra colors we've added, and we would definitely be excited to make it happen.

STRETCH GOAL 2:   $291,494

Our good friend, Jake (hi Jake!), at Flint and Tinder, holds the record for Kickstarter's most funded fashion project at a whopping $291,493 for his premium men's underwear. We know we are an underdog here, but we've decided to take him on! So we decided to do something a little crazy: if Ministry of Supply hits $291,494 in the next 10 days, we are sending our backers to space! ...Ok, so that statement might be misleading, but as we speak, our MIT-engineers are brainstorming ways to take all of our backer's names (along with an Apollo shirt or two for good measure) to new heights and to get a premium view of planet earth!  Maybe even Jake will up his pledge for this!

So, for the last time, we ask you to help us hit these stretch goals. Please share in any way you can over the next 10 days: by buying another shirt, by sharing with your friends or on Facebook, Twitter, or by contacting that blog you love to read and asking if they'll feature our project.

It's been a wild ride so far - let's all go together to new heights!

      Congratulations on meeting the $200k stretch goal! I'd love to see fine blue pinstripes if you're taking suggestions for patterns.

      Hi Bing - great question! Your best bet right now would be to unofficially "combine" reward levels. Just let us know if you go that route!

    3. Creator Bing on July 2, 2012

      With new color and pattern styles potentially available, would you consider adding a new pledge level between $250 and $560 with 4 or 5 Apollo shirts?

      Hi Lawren - we're working hard to nail down the exact colors - based on the survey results, and the exact tones that our labs are producing. We'll get updates out ASAP, but we may only know for sure just before the campaign ends (based on our projected timeline).

    5. Creator Lawren Taylor on July 2, 2012

      When you've decided, please post an update with the pattern & which two colours were chosen for the $125,000 stretch goal.

      Jason - thanks for the support! We're finalizing the exact choices, but we're aiming to have a variety of solids available, along with a pattern choice if we hit our stretch goal. And noted on your preference!

      Pattern sounds awesome! (same colour choices or just one with pattern? if it's just one could we have it be mostly red (real red) or blue striped? This is just to add to your discussion but it would be nice too have something like what the 11th Doctor wears.

      Damon - we're picking out the right pattern now, stripes are certainly in the running!

      Pinstripes?
