About

A utilitarian sweatshirt hoodie that will hold all sized smart phones, an iPad-mini and a Velcro tab that will keep the headphone wires in place, as well as tangle free.

The idea:

"I always saw guys on the subway platforms awkwardly dealing with tangled headphone wires and the storage of their smartphones. I personally have the same problem. It’s a jacket, every guy needs in the city.

The Velcro idea, I was inspired by a vintage fisherman's vest. Some vests has a square sheep fur to hold fishing lures. The placement, where there is a embroidered identification canvas tape on vintage military and air force jackets.

The inspiration started from an essential sweatshirt hoodie that everyone has in their closet. Uniting it with the ubiquitous, men’s fashion jacket, a vintage military M-65 field jacket. 

A hoodie with military pockets that will store all size smartphones and easy access to a headphone is a solution to a busy guy in a metropolis."

k5 imperative details:

1. velcro.

The Velcro will also hold the bluetooth headphones as well.

2. metal grommet.

A passage for the headphone wire from the pocket flap, that will fit all headphone wire plugs. There are two grommets, one on the chest pocket and also another on the lower waist pocket for bigger smartphones.

The chest and both waist flap pockets are constructed like an envelope. Bottom hem of the pockets are not stitched to the body of the jacket. It is open for comfortability and easy access to the smart phones. Pockets are stitched down at both sides to the body of the jacket.

proceeds.

With the successful funding, Hansen will be able to produce and ship the jackets. The rest of the portion, is the seed capital to launch a luxury women's and men's brand, kiger.

Kiger Hansen has written a business plan for prospective investors and after discussing with various industry professionals, they have all advised him that he needs to initially launch the line on his own to gain brand awareness and to influence prospective business partners and investors.

With Hansen's versatile design talent from designing denim sportswear to ready-to-wear collections for both women's and men's, he is ready to branch out his my own.

Risks and challenges

As a fashion designer with over 20 years experience, and supply chain experts with more than 40 years of entrepreneurial and manufacturing experience, be assured the jacket will exceed your expectations.

I am a perfectionist and have researched and have the experience to bring a high quality product. The risks are minimal, I will be utilizing the best manufacturers who will be able to ship within 90 days of successful project funding, so you can enjoy your very own k5-jkt, in time for spring.

The current k5-jkt is a prototype, so expect the final product to be more polished and of supreme quality. Specifically, the current prototype's center front neck drop is too low and will be raised for the wearer's comfort.
