About this project
At last! What you guy's have been asking for will come. We will be delivering One Man Outerwear for Fall 15. Street inspired, technical outerwear using similar high tech fabrics as Mia Melon. For those that are new to our journey, we have been delivering fashion forward, high tech outerwear to women since 2011 under the label Mia Melon. We did our very first KS campaign in April 2014 to develop a much bigger Mia Melon collection. The campaign ended up being KS 4th most successful campaign in Canada during their first year. From this campaign 1/3 of ALL feedback was from men, asking for a men's version of Mia Melon. We are in an industry that requires a lot of working capital and the development of these products isn't cheap. So a little over 1 year later, we are able able to deliver what you asked for!
We plan to deliver One Man outerwear in October 2015. With a $40,000 first goal it will assist us in our production needs. We are designing and producing high tech fashion garments in a competitive mass market. Our business lacks capital to initiate business projects such as social media, product development and advertising. Exceeding this goal will help our company immensely and allow us to move forward with stability.
We have some amazing rewards to offer you. We will be delivering two weatherproof coats just in time for the fall season with two additional stretch goal styles ready to go. Each One Man weatherproof coat will retail for at least $200 USD ($240CDN) plus shipping. We are only offering styles and colors that will go into production so back this campaign & be the first to receive this new niche product for less.
Guys, all the Mia melon pictures are shot with true production pieces. We are still in the development phase with One Man Outerwear. These are first generation prototypes and true samples are yet to come. The end result will be the same great quality and finish as Mia Melon - 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
Each One Man Outerwear jacket has a 3k/3k waterproof, windproof membrane inside the two fabric layers. This special membrane allows the wind and water to stay out but allows the body to still breath.
Our jackets are 99.9% waterproof. The inside fabrics are lined with a cozy 220 gram micro fleece that keeps you warm and comfortable.
The outside fabric is a fashion forward fabric that has been treated with a DWR treatment. This heat treatment allows the water to bead off.
What we do
We have been shipping weatherproof fashion coats all over the world to many very happy female customers. They appreciate the alternative to sporty camping jackets or shiny black rain jackets. Now we can finally offer men a similar product. We have a 100% customer satisfaction policy that takes the risk out of backing one of our fine quality products. Although we delivered the rewards from our last hoodie campaign behind schedule, we were able to deliver very nice, stylish weatherproof hoodies. This was our very first generation of weatherproof hoodies, we can only imagine how the second generation will look.We also introduced a few OMO styles and for the first time ever designing men's product. We think we did a good job. This will help us ensure that the outerwear you receive in October will have a great fit. Don't think about the sunshine right now. Think about winter for 5 minutes and back us on a new One man Outerwear coat. It will arrive just in time. We can't be more excited to launch the men's outerwear and start this new brand called One Man Outerwear

Hi Todd and Tanya; I just received my new coat last week and wanted to let you know how delighted I am with it! The superior quality and craftsmanship is very evident and I look forward to an opportunity to wear it soon
Diana Goldberg said: Got my navy Jasmund hoodie this week. Really excellent quality workmanship, and fits great
Pleased with my hoodie. Wore it in rain and wind today - kept me warm and dry.
@Creator. Thank you. Sister got her hoodie and she loves it. Great job. My mom now wants one in medium. We are supposed to come to Vancouver in July. Do you have a store that we can come to and buy a few?? Thanks
Matthew Neuls said: My hoodie arrived yesterday, and it's awesome. It fits good, and the hood is a good size. It rained today, so I went for a walk to test it out. I found it is definitely waterproof, windproof and warm. Thanks a lot!
Thank you Kickstarter and Kickstarter backers!
Thanks to you we are still here and are still moving forward. This will be out third campaign that is so instrumental to fund our new ideas and to help pay the bills in this working capital consuming industry. 2014 we made our first very small profit when we abandoned the Street wear section of the business and focused on fashionable, styling, weatherproof outerwear. Our vision is to be a leader in fashion and function. The banks are finally starting to get interested in us and with your support we can knock this campaign out of the park. With your support, our company will stay strong and we will be able to provide a lively hood for our family. We work hard and try to do the best we can for you. We would not be here today if wasn't for Kickstarter and the Kickstarter backers.
Risks and challenges
We have learned a lot from our last campaign! We are only offering styles and colors that will go into production. No changes, No cancelled styles! We have also already paid the factory deposits to ensure we deliver on time. Fabric is being produced as we speak. The only risk is that an unsuccessful campaign may give us financial difficulties to pay the balance. With your backing and us getting funded, there will be no problems.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
