Introducing the first ever #dresstechclothing company: Bond & Co.
Have you ever been sitting in your car and needed to answer the phone but could not get it out of your pants pocket?
Suppose you are making your commute in the city and want to easily pop your earphones in or maybe you want to shoot a text in a tight crowd on the subway...
… pulling out your phone can be difficult. But we aim to help change that.
And with the ever growing size of the smartphone (iphone 6, iphone 6 plus, note 4 and galaxy s5), we are running out of places to fit these things... (see #bendgate).
but that is not a problem thanks to our products, #secretsmartphonepocket
Our products are great for on-the-go people who dress well. Our designs are great for bikers, city commuters, world travelers, musicians, speakers, and everyone who uses technology. #techclothing
What makes us different from the average shirt brand?
3 Things: Original designs, technology integrated into EVERY shirt, and socially responsible.
We aim to create unique designs in clothing that will make you stand out from the average department store drab. Our designs mix cultures of the East and West depending upon the creator.
A unique design that first sparked our brand. This design was created by Rocky in New Delhi in Fall of 2013.
Includes special Asian cut collar with band across the collar and straps on the wrists. Also unique pocket designs.
Includes tech features (Super sized secret smartphone pocket hidden on the right chest and hidden earbud holders).
A great shirt with an original style.
Includes unique Tech features (large smartphone pocket on the left arm will fit iPhone 6 plus, Galaxy s5, Note 4 [6 & 1/2 x 4 in, 165 x 101.6 mm] and hidden earbud holders) (no front chest secret pocket due to denim design features, *arm pocket not displayed).
A military style shirt with captain flaps and pocket designs.
Also includes a unique smartphone pocket on the left arm (will comfortably fit smaller smartphones, i.e. Iphone 6 or smaller)(6 x 3.5 inch dimensions, 152.4 x 88.9 mm)

great for suits!
All garments are handmade in India and help give people jobs here where 1 billion people are fighting for every meal... we will get to know the workers personally. Currently all of our dress shirts are made with the highest quality 100% cotton, including the Western.
We have integrated technology into every shirt we make. Yes, we even aim to do that with our t-shirts! With pockets big enough for most smartphones (Dress shirts only) or special earbud holders in every shirt… we’ll have you feeling like a true 00’ agent every day you wear our products.
Bellow is the current prototype example for the #earbudholders . It keeps earbuds hidden yet easily accessible and comfortable.
Secret Smartphone Pocket
It is 2014, why can't we fit our smartphone in a dress pocket!!!!
Bellow is the example photo of the current #secretsmartphonepocket . It is big enough to handle the ever growing screen size and sits comfortably inside every men's dress shirt we make. It also will have a hidden hole to conceal the leads to the earbud holders in the collar.
The secret smartphone pocket is one of our tech features that will be included in ALL of our dress shirts (excludes Western which has large smartphone arm pocket), it is 5 x 7 inches (127 x 177.8 mm) and fits iPhone 6 plus and Samsung Galaxy s5, Note 4 and most Windows, Sony, Nokia, and android products. There currently is not a smartphone on the market that will not comfortably fit our pocket (tablets not included). We are putting a stitch line in the pocket to comfortably fit the mobile and a pen (4 inches wide to separate the shirt into two compartments), that way the phone will not slide around but will rest comfortably in your pocket. The pocket will also comfortably fit "normal sized" phones... they will enjoy the same qualities... trust me, my phone is not XL.
We plan to include a simple EMI radiation reducing pocket shield made from fully renewable materials at no extra cost... just for your peace of mind. They will be made by families living in the poverty stricken areas of India and will provide them with some extra money for living expenses. Because of the possibilities of interference and other factors we decided to make this re-instertable... that way it will not lose it's effects in the wash.
We are a socially responsible clothing company that aims to make a positive impact in our world. That is why our founders came to India over 2 years ago… they wanted to improve upon the lives of everyday people. Jobs = empowerment, food, and life for the families we help employ. All those employed for manufacturing our products will recieve fair wages for their labor... also no children will be employed for making the shirts, we will make sure of it!
We are committed to spending 10%+ of our funds go to give clean water to remote areas of India... and also possibly to basic health and financial training... after all this is where manufacturing happens for all of our shirts.
What does your pledge mean for us?
Help us get our first major cargo clothing shipment fully funded to fly back to the states for both stocking and home delivery!
We will get all items to you by December 19th 2014... but aim for earlier if possible. That means just in time for the Christmas holidays!

Risks and challenges
We are offering our products at EXTENSIVELY discounted rates based on projections for our current plans of expansion... we feel that the best way to prove we have a great product is to get it in your hands!
from exporting/importing costs to time of delivery, we feel that our research points us to the correct projections and will cover cost and timing goals, but sometimes things do happen. However we have added extra timing for any delays or even for excessive amounts of backers.
We already have an experienced foreign making manufacturer that can pump out 1000 shirts a day by hand and we also have a reputable exporter, along with multiple options for distribution in the States. We are ready to go.
We even hope to ship early if things go correctly, but please plan on receiving your air mailed products before the 19th of December.
Please know that we will try to be as honest as possible about any changes or difficulties so that you can know where we are in the processes of production, shipping, and distribution.
We also are choosing to make products in a country where most products are made by hand... and all of our shirts will likely be also.
... that means people representing families will be given jobs... but it also mean things will not be fully mechanical in procedure.
Just know that these real people that we are getting to know are working hard to get your product just right so that fit and comfort are the results.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
