About

The Company

Flippant is no joke. Despite the light-hearted concept, we’re serious about making clothing with upside down pockets, and we need your help. We have secured a manufacturer and have all of the energy to make this happen. However, in order to start full-scale production and make the highest quality shirts for men and women, we need to fund a minimum factory order.

Flippant is a creative, genuine company, and we want you to be a part of it. With your support, Flippant can succeed while maintaining its identity. We don’t promise to change fashion and culture, but we’ll try. For Flippant to become what we envision, we need to build a community, and we can’t do that without you.

The Story 

My brother, Zach, and I have always done things a little bit differently. Throughout our childhood (and early adulthood), our father told us to stop acting so “flippant.” So last September, we decided to stop acting flippant and start living flippant. 

We assembled a dedicated team and have been working tirelessly out of dorm rooms and car trunks to create shirts and jokes, to make the Flippant Life a reality. After months of prototyping and finding the perfect manufacturer, we're ready. Now it’s time to share it with you. 

Where will your pledge go? 

  • We have partnered with a top-notch manufacturer here in New England to sew these pockets with the consistent quality we demand, and your pledge will go toward the minimum factory order required to start:
  • Producing soft, comfortable, 100% ringspun cotton T-Shirts with double stitched pockets 
  • Shipping soft, comfortable, 100% ringspun cotton T-Shirts with double stitched pockets 
  • Relocation to Detroit, MI, funny and entertaining photos, videos and news updates. 

The Shirts:

When we first came up with the idea of an upside down pocket tee, we knew everyone would want one. But we didn't know which ones would be best, so after prototyping tons of designs, these were the ones that made the cut. We think we found a happy medium of different shirts for different people.

The shirt of the people. Patriotic flag pattern on a true navy shirt with a navy blue collar.

We brewed this shirt: To refresh the world... To inspire moments of optimism and happiness... To create value and make a difference. Pepsi fans, you’re up next.

 For the old soul who likes to party. Refined houndstooth pocket.

The American Dreamer: Money doesn’t buy happiness, but it does buy this shirt. Keep chasing that dream. 

The One Percenter: Same shirt, better price. 100% The same shirt as The American Dreamer. Not for your average corporate pig.

A shirt made for the B- students. Guaranteed not to exceed expectations.

 Flex your right to bear arms. 100% American, 100% Useless.

Seer sucker fabric on a soft chambray. The perfect shirt for the yacht club or the bowling alley (the one on your yacht).

 Don’t overthink it. Just say yes.

These flippant stickers are perfect for your laptop, water bottle, or bald friends

Risks and challenges

We have been working continuously with suppliers, manufacturers, and industry advisors to make sure that our production will be as seamless as possible if we are able to reach our goal. In the event that people like our shirts as much as potato salad, and we become wildly successful, we have ensured that we will have the production capacity to handle the orders, and deliver high quality, useless shirts.
