THE Idea

The idea’s pretty simple. Take a cloak and a hoodie, mix em up. And you have the LOTH Hoodie. It’s got hidden Pockets, a long hood and cool lines. That’s basically it. Oh and it’s just the most amazing hoodie you’ll ever see!

Hi my name is Bill Rogers, creator of the LOTH hoodies. I have been developing this hoodie for the past 4 years. But I have had the idea for over 10 years. I always love to wear hoodies with my favorite characters on it. It was an expression of my interest. I got the idea to make this hoodie after watching some of my favorite movies and playing my favorite video games. As a kid, and even in high school I loved to dress up in costume. I even remember a time when I was 21 when my best friend and I set up a stack of rock in a creek and pretended they were goblins and trolls and we would jump out and throw rocks at them with our awesome skills. Geeks right. Well this hoodie is for all of the Geeks out there.I am really excited about this project! Someone recently asked me, “Why are you making these hoodies?” I simply responded, “Because I want to wear one.” I have seen the same reaction and excitement about this Hoodie from other fellow fantasy fans. We’ve developed many prototypes and tried multiple fabrics and it’s now ready to make its 1st appearance at the Salt Lake Comic Con. We just returned from the show and had a great response! Everyone loved the design and the feel of these hoodies. We already placed some pre-orders and the customers are very excited! Discover how the LOTH hoodie is perfect for all your daily adventures.

CONSTRUCTION and Design

I wanted this hoodie to be unique and functional. For the fabric I wanted something warm and that had texture to it. So I chose a thermal knit fabric for the outside shell. For the inside I chose a soft anti-pill polar fleece. Then topped it off with matching ribbing for the wrist and waist.

Designed in both adult and youth sizes this hoodie also has a lot of cool features. The most obvious of which is the long pointed hood. Designed to sit comfortably on your head and keep you warm throughout your adventures. Another one of the great features of this hoodie are the hidden pockets. Not only do these pockets keep your hands warm but they also help skiers keep their skins warm. And don’t forget, this hoodie is manufactured in the United States and always will be.

Risks and challenges

The biggest obstacle with any new product is getting the word out. If people don't hear about your product they won't buy it.

I am a huge believer in advertising and marketing. There are many ways to make the advertising fun and creative.

With my background in television and video I feel well prepared to create and distribute marketing material. My strength is producing videos. With the second largest search engine being YouTube it is essential for companies to have a marketing video. I have worked for the American Outdoors TV show for over 6 years. American Outdoors has over 47 million viewers around the world. We will feature the LOTH Hoodie on that show and others.

There are many other creative ways I will market the LOTH Hoodie including using social media, colleges and universities, TV Shows and many others.

This Hoodie is also very fan based. That is why I will be contacting fan based websites and retail stores to carry and sell the hoodies. We will also be selling these hoodies at Comic Cons and Geek conventions.
