About

FIELD MACHINE APPAREL & ACCESSORIES | SUMMER 2013 COLLECTION

The Story:

During this past winter I went searching for a new bag for the upcoming baseball season. I wanted something that met the following criteria; well made, extremely durable, sophisticated aesthetic, and manufactured in the USA. I was presented with the usual options which featured cheap, thin material, extraordinarily bright colors, and oversized logos everywhere. There had to be a better option, right?

As a 28 year old, I was really looking for a product that fit my needs of superior construction, long lifespan, and a certain level of sophistication. That search is what led me to create Field Machine. As a graphic designer, lover of eclectic music, art AND sports I find myself in a great position to produce the unique, well made, athletic inspired products I had always dreamed of.

Why We Need Your Support

With your help and support we will be able to make the Field Machine Summer Collection a real possibility. A more mature outlook on athletic product and apparel design will be born.

Your pledge will go towards materials, supplies, and patterns that are necessary for manufacturing our 2013 Summer Collection. We appreciate your time and look forward to earning your support.

Thank you,

Tony

Our Plans For The Future

We didn't create this campaign to simply reach an end goal, but to use it as a catalyst upon which to further build our ideas. We hope to carry this momentum forward to create great unique products to share with you the consumer. Again, we appreciate any interest and donations and look forward to showing you what we can do!

We Would Like To Thank...

I would like to personally thank Laura Radniecki for her help with our amazing photo shoot and Eric Swanson for the great video he put together for us. We could have never made it this far without help from our great family and friends. Thank you!

Risks and challenges

Creating a campaign is no easy task and we don't take it lightly. We understand you are investing your hard earned money and want to reassure you we have done the necessary legwork to deliver great products to you in a timely manner.

We have all supplies, materials, and manufacturers lined up and ready to go. Of course there may be some unforeseen delays but we believe our plan is ready to be executed successfully!
