Frequently Asked Questions
You want your Drinking Jacket as soon as possible! The sooner we get everyone's information, the sooner the factory can begin making yours. So, there will be a deadline for getting us your information.
The campaign will conclude on December 22nd. On December 23rd you will be emailed a survey. It is imperative that you fill out that survey ASAP. You'll have until JANUARY 5th to fill out the survey. At that point, we will be sending the orders to the factory for manufacturing.
* IF YOU ARE LATE GETTING YOUR SURVEY IN, YOUR HOODIE WILL NOT GO INTO PRODUCTION UNTIL THE SECOND RUN, WHICH WILL BE AFTER MARCH.
In the survey, you will specify the color(s) and size(s) of your Drinking Jacket(s). If you ordered a personalized card tom Zane, you will give us the name of the recipient.
You will also give us the address (one address per package ordered).Last updated:
The only way to get one is through our Kickstarter page here!

Just click on the ‘Back This Project’ button on the right hand side of the campaign page.Last updated:
There are several ways to get more than one Drinking Jacket. Team up with some friends to save some dough!
For two (2) Drinking Jackets, choose the $150 option. This saves you $10 per unit. Both Drinking Jackets will be sent to the same address, which is the reason for the savings.
The $225 gets you two (2) Drinking Jackets, along with two travel flasks, two signed cards from Zane, two fleece-lined beanies, and two bottle-opener caps. Both Drinking Jackets will be sent to the same address.
For six (6) Drinking Jackets, select the $420 option. This saves you $15-25 per unit, because there are no size restrictions. They can be XS-XXXXL. All Drinking Jackets will be sent to the same address.Last updated:
When the campaign is concluded, you will be sent a survey. In the survey, you will get to pick a color (Charcoal Filtered, Merlot, Charred Oak). If you ordered more than one Drinking Jacket, you can pick multiple colors.Last updated:
Once the campaign is concluded, you will specify the size of your Drinking Jacket. There is a size chart located at the bottom of our Kickstarter page.
These are Americans. And, as Americans tend to run a little bigger, the Drinking Jacket sizes are a little bigger than European sizes. They are comparable to the hoodie sizes at The Gap.Last updated:
The first objective in creating the Drinking Jacket, was to make a comfortable hoodie that was stylish and understated enough to wear every day. My original goal was the create a hoodie that was perfect for traveling. The I.D. pocket was actually made because you have to have your I.D. and ticket handy for TSA.
The second objective when making the Drinking Jacket was to make something that was perfect for tailgating, beer festivals, theaters & events. Sometimes you need a place to put your cold beer while tailgating. If you've ever been to a Beer Festival, you know that you need a place to hold your cup. Sometimes, having a hidden flask of rum in the movies makes that two hours more fun. And sometimes you want to keep your hands (and the rest of you) warm, and your drink cold.
I just wanted to make a piece of clothing that was the best possible apparel to wear at drinking (and non-drinking) events YET comfortable enough to wear every day.
If there was a hidden bag and tube, it would likely make the Drinking Jacket uncomfortable. It would also make washing a pain in the butt. And it would also add some costs to the Drinking Jacket, which is already pricey to make.Last updated:
Many people who got the early bird special have asked how they upgrade to the flask. Other have asked how they get multiple flasks.
When the campaign is concluded, I'll offer an option to get additional flasks. I'll figure out the price per unit, plus shipping, figure out what the lowest cost for those is, and give you the option of adding on flasks.Last updated:
I had two choices, as I saw it: Run this campaign in the summer so you'd have your Drinking Jacket in time for the fall OR run this campaign in the late fall so you'd have your Drinking Jacket by late winter-early spring.
This campaign would have done poorly in July. As you were strutting around in your minimalist clothing during the dog days of summer, the last thing you'd be concerned with would have been drinking gloves and a lined hoodie. The Coolest Cooler (the biggest Kickstarter campaign ever) failed when it originally tried to launch a cooler campaign in December. But they crushed it when they re-launched last summer.
So, I figured the best thing would be to offer the Drinking Jacket during the holidays, so you could give it as a gift!
While the Drinking Jacket itself won't be ready to physically give as a gift, I've made some printable and emailable CARDS and VIDEOS that you can give to let the recipient know that you bought them something (awesome) that will arrive in a few months.
This means that you'll ALSO get credit when they receive their Drinking Jacket. It's like giving the same gift twice! They'll never forget your thoughtfulness. I can't even remember what my mom gave me for Christmas last year. I know, I'm a horrible son. But, if I got the Drinking Jacket for Christmas and then physically got it in March, when no other presents were present, I would have never forgotten when she got me!Last updated:
Zane has been hosting television shows about eating and drinking (mostly drinking) on National Geographic, Food Network, Travel Channel, Spike, Fine Living Network, HDNet and MojoHD. He has been throwing dinners and parties for a decade.
For the dinners in Los Angeles and New York, Zane will take his guests out to dinner. You'll get to choose from some amazing dishes, and Zane will pick up the check. There will be surprises. There will be stories. There will be photos. Things will be signed. Amazing experiences will be had. You will be able to brag to your friends about that night for ever.
Kickstarter does not allow alcohol as a reward, so drinks are not included. But, if one of Zane's friends bought a round or two for everyone, who could stop him!
These parties are 21+ only.Last updated:
