What are Speakeasys?
Speakeasys are an innovative combination of fashion and function. They offer a style that says, “you should see me in my underwear,” while providing a pocket that says, “it’s none of your business what’s in my underwear.”
My mind is blown! What Would I use this pocket for?
We aren’t here to tell you how to live, that’s not our style. We just want to make sure no one else is telling you how to live either. The Speakeasy pocket is ideal for carrying items that you don’t want other people to take from you. Common examples include: your passport, wallet, keys, cell phone, and flask.
What are we doing with the money?
Changing lives, one pocket at a time. Your pledge will help us manufacture, package, and ship your briefs. As the saying goes, before one can run, one must receive seed money. We have already contributed $10,000 of our own money to the project, but need an additional $10,000 to get our initial run of Speakeasy Briefs fulfilled. We hope to exceed our funding goal, as this will allow us to offer more color options to our backers.
But guys, won’t buying these briefs create a whole new set of problems, in that I will become so cool and attractive that I will have to beat the ladies off with a stick?
Yes, but don’t hit girls with sticks. Ever. For real.
We will keep you updated with how your orders are coming. We greatly appreciate your support!

Risks and challenges
For the past year, we've dedicated ourselves to ensure a successful Speakeasy launch. Here is our timeline along with the risks and challenges inherent to our project.
Completion of Kickstarter
Week 1: Backer survey (choose your briefs color, provide mailing address, etc.)
Weeks 2-6: Production
Weeks 7-8: Freight
Week 9: Final packaging and fulfillment
Design and Production: We have been working closely with our designer and manufacturer for the past 9 months to have our samples created and refined. We are now ready to have our initial order manufactured. Pending a successful launch, our manufacturer is anticipating our initial order. If we are able to surpass our funding goal, it will allow us to reach the minimum order quantity for additional color options for our backers.
Timing: We’ve set a reasonable production and fulfillment schedule, but there are inherent risks of delay in the process. We will communicate with both our backers and our manufacturer throughout the campaign to ensure the fulfillment process stays to the timeline. We are working closely with friends who use the same manufacturer. This has helped us to anticipate and then mitigate potential fulfillment delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We will have S, M, L and XL. They run true to size.

Our original prototypes were 100% cotton. Through testing, we found that adding 5% spandex improved the comfort of the briefs as well as the functionality of the pocket. We also went with a high-end waste band as it needs to offer support for the pocket and not become worn out after washings.
