About this project

$37,177

869

 Two years ago I took on this project this project to get this awesome hoodie made.  

 Through a community effort, we came up with a sweet design and made the dream, a reality.  Backed by an awesome community, I blew through 400 hoodies in just a few hours, orders literally came in faster than the webstore could process them! (what a mess that was eh?) From the beginning I had intentions to make a follow up order, but never quite found the time, life got busy and stayed busy!  I would have a few hours here or there and made a little progress when I could, but never enough to give it another solid go. 

 While my life hasn't slowed down, I have made the decision and dedicated time to see this through fully!  Over the past two years I've received hundreds and hundreds of emails with YOUR support to see more of these made, and I've been saving each and every one of them!

The Hoodie

 Slim fit, cotton poly blend, custom designed and custom manufactured with high quality materials and construction, fancy sublimated artwork, super nice, super comfy, super limited edition, super super.  

The Goal

 With successful funding we will have enough to place an order for 400 hoodies.

So this is it people of the internet. This is your chance! With your pledge we are that much closer to making more of these a reality!  This new batch will be the same high quality, premium hoodie that was made before, but with enough to go around!

Please consider the following when picking your size:

 Size     Length     Chest   Torso Opening        Sleeve

S          29"             22"            18"                    35 "

L           31"             25"            20"                   37"  

XL         32"             27"            22"                   38"

2XL       33"             28"            23"                   39"  

All measurements are in inches.

Risks and challenges

The hoodies...

...are being manufactured by the same tried and true company that I used last time. This isn't some small mom and pop operation, they're an international leader in clothing manufacturing and have been in business for over 25 years.

The order...

... for rewards will be placed as soon as we're funded, from there it's an expected 100 day lead time. Once they're delivered to me, the goal is to process and ship at least 150 orders a week, until they're are filled.

The Vinyl stickers...

...are being manufactured locally, and the plan is that they will be shipped out as they're available, 100 orders every week. Lead time on those is only a few days for every order I put in, so those will be shipped much sooner than the hoodies will be available.

The Josh...

...I've been self employed in various endeavors since 2008. My main thing has always been clothing retail. I ran a high volume eBay store, and was a powerseller for years on end.

The Shipping...

...All US bound Hoodie orders will be mailed will be done via USPS flat rate shipping, other rewards via First class, and will include delivery confirmation and basic tracking will be available.

International shipping is a bit of a crap shoot, last time I think only two orders were lost/stolen/disappeared, by and large it worked out well, it really is a buyer be warned though, as it's not really feasible to insure and get tracking on every package that is shipped. However, it will be available as an additional cost for those interested.

    The Chosen One-of-a-Kind

    There literally exists but one of these. I heard that if two existed, the universe could collapse, and that crispy M&M's will be available in the US.

    This is the original prototype, it's got a tan hood, solid grey sleeves, fits a little baggier, and is constructed using heavy weight premium fleece.

    It also won't have the same tag on the inside that all the other ones have, that's because with how much you're overpaying, it will include a fully customized printed tag on the inside collar.
    Don't worry, I didn't wear it but once to try it on for pictures, then I had it dry cleaned and locked it away for safe keeping.

    It'll be in the mail, priority shipped by the first week in May.

    You'll also two more hoodies when they arrive in September, you'll get a handwritten thank you note and a frameable doodle from yours truely, a few tattoos and vinyl decals, and umm... a framed picture of me getting rad on my jet ski "The Ski Serpent", and that's it, what more could you possibly want? Other than your money back? Shhh, don't tell your SO, in fact, you probably should think of a good excuse for how to explain this.
