      Got my shirt and wore it for the first time today. it is awesome. Great fit for me. Very comfortable. Velcro pocket is a useful nice touch. I plan to buy more. Great work on your first products. I wish you success in the future.

      I will be waiting until sizing comes out because I am a "tall skinny guy" and sizing can be funky for me. I cannot wait to see the finished product!

      take your time with the survey, but its best if you submit and then I can make a note about the sizing that would work better for you.

      Are these the only sizes available? I was hoping for a 38*32. If these are the only options, I might try to sell it. When's the latest I can submit the survey?

    8. Josh Holleb Creator on October 30, 2012

      Regarding color. The shirt shown on the website is Cloud, a grey color. Below the shirt, you will see swatches of the colors that will be available. We are working on finalizing shirt design/sizing right now, and will send out final measurements when they are ready.

      Yeah, would love even just a neck size for the workshirt if possible. Also, the fabric on the shirt page says shown is "cloud" but that looks like avocado to me. Can you verify this?

      Thanks and can't wait!

      Cha-ching! With 49 hours to spare!

      You guys are going to do this, and even though I am over here in those "mountains" on the East coast, the spirit of industry, manufacturing and intentional awareness of our clothes that I feel from your story/company fits in excellently with our towns here in Western North Carolina. We are in the midst of opening a outdoor gear and clothing shop that will help get people on the slopes, rocks, rivers and trails through recycling all the stuff we already have out there. I hope that as we grow I will have funds to stock items that fit our philosophy-and I hope that Totem will still be around to do that!

      Thanks for the comment and the contribution. That was the most hillarious comment of the entire campaign so far, and dead on.

    15. Xander Page on September 24, 2012

      Hi Team Totem, love what you're doing! It's like Nau's values had a baby with Carnhartt's durability and it was raised in a commune with Prana's and GoLite's designers. Oh yea, and you're in Boulder so it's even local for me! Love it!

    16. Josh Holleb Creator on September 19, 2012

      We would love to discuss tiny house plans. Thanks for your pledge...

    17. Matt Barrio on September 19, 2012

      This is the fuckin shit. No joke. It is so refreshing and encouraging! Hopefully the buttons are coming from a sustainable bamboo farm (preferably SFC certified). @Josh I checked out your website, have you guys ever built a tiny house? Something I've wanted but never found a builder and didn't want to go with one pre-made.
      Anyways, best of luck. I'll share the word with my friends!
      P.S. My 86 Schwinn is dying to meet CO.... one day.

      Hey there Totem. Wishing you the best (I'm a farmworker who needs new pants!) and telling everybody I know about your project. Good luck!

    19. Brian Charles on September 4, 2012

      I am excited to see the buzz grow around Totem...

    20. Josh Holleb Creator on August 28, 2012

      depending on the amount of beanies requested, we will probably do a new run with new colors. Also, this is a fundraising campaign, and shipping and taxes are included, so it works out to be pretty close.

      Thanks for your support

      Just wondering what the difference between the $35 dollar pledge beanie and the beanie on your website for $24? Will other colors of the beanie be offered instead of the two brown/green combos?
