Swagga Suits: The Ultimate Fan Apparel
The Swagga Suit as worn by UW Alum & NBA Player Jon Brockman
Collegiate sporting events offer an atmosphere that is unrivaled in terms of passion, craziness, energy, and loyalty. This is evident more than ever at the University of Washington. We are a group of UW students that are season ticket holders and avid Husky enthusiasts. We bleed purple and gold, but wanted a new way to express our loyalty to our team. This is where our creative side came in handy. As students in the entrepreneurship program at the University of Washington we were presented with a unique challenge of creating our own company. We decided to turn this challenge into an opportunity to solve our problem. We aimed to create the most innovative, practical, and crazy piece of apparel we could think of. We wanted a product that exuded swagger, and with that in mind we created The Original Swagga Suit. This is a product designed by Husky enthusiasts for Husky enthusiasts. We set out with a goal and vision, and upon completion of the class, we saw success that helped us realize that this was more than a school project… this was a real product for our real company. Now that we have realized our early success, we are keeping the dream alive and hoping to share this idea with other schools. We want to increase everyone’s level of fandom and bring it to a whole new level, allowing all fans to express their love for their team in a way never thought possible. We aim to create sheer fandimonium.
Our product is a one-piece jumpsuit in the schools’ colors with the school logo loudly embroidered across the chest. This suit is masterfully designed and is 80% cotton 20% polyester. It is sweatshirt material, and zips all the way up through the hood. It contains 2 sets of pockets. 2 zipper pant pockets on each side and 2 sweatshirt pockets in the front. Ribbing at the ankle and wrist allow for a snug fit. These suits come in 6 sizes, XS-XXL to ensure we can dress all fans. They are unisex and can be worn in almost any social setting. They are obviously great for going to sporting events, but also for parties, playing sports, tailgating, hanging out with friends, or just lounging around the house.
We have successfully been able to spread the swag all around the University of Washington, but we don’t want to stop there. We are swagbassadors. This is where kickstarter can help. With your help, we want to spread the swag around the country. In the next few months we want to spread to 3 other Pac-12 schools, and then from there, we would love to ride that momentum and bring our revolutionary product to schools all around the country. But we’re not stopping there either. This product can be customized for professional sports teams as well, and even customized to any customer’s preference. Imagine putting your company logo or your name across the front and have your suit customized to your liking. This is the dream we have for our company. We also want to expand our line with different products and accessories for the suits. In order to make any of this possible, we need additional funding first and foremost to become more self-sufficient. We can achieve this by obtaining our own license to produce collegiate apparel. Also, additional funding will help us secure a more local supply chain resulting in shorter turn around for our orders and will allow us to be more creative with our product offering. To put it in simpler terms, additional funding would allow us to expand to other schools, increase revenues, and help us start the process to obtain proper licenses, secure a local supply chain, and most importantly, spread swag around the world.
Join the movement. Become a Swagbassador. Obviously, helping us out makes us one step closer to bringing more swag to your school/team of choice, but we understand that immediate gratification is always nice so here is what’s in it for you...
