Buttons??? They are never really a thought or conversation starter… until now. Take a look around you these tiny details are everywhere. Subtle and mundane, we have been accustomed to settling for what we receive on our garments along with the notion of their permanent attachment. Furthermore, most of us don’t even know how to sew them on.

We have decided to make buttons better!

 
Introducing the Auxilry Interchangeable Button System – an innovative and easy-to-use system that allows you to update your outfit with the push of a button. The Auxilry Interchangeable Button System enables you to enhance your daily wear to evening wear, create unique combinations for added details, and switch buttons across all of your garments prolonging their use. Best of all, interchange new button designs onto your garments in seconds without ever picking up a sewing needle or experiencing loose button threads!

Many of us want to refresh or accent our outfits to express who we are. Sometimes, changing even the smallest detail, can lead to the biggest impression. Details set us apart! Take a look in your closet. Sooner or later, even your favorite buttoned shirts become monotonous over time. With the Auxilry Interchangeable Button System, no shirt will ever be the same again.

These buttons take you from boardroom to bar in no time. Add eye-catching details to your shirts and begin receiving compliments during your next conversation.

Switch your buttons in the airport, or on the way to your next meeting for a refreshed look. Use them to match your jewelry or accentuate details suitable for any occasion.

Help us establish this innovative system of style solving the everyday problems associated with the antiquated application of common buttons. For as little as $25, your support will get you an Auxilry Interchangeable Button System kit plus a FREE set of interchangeable buttons and extra backer benefits.

The Auxilry Styling Guide eBook will offer you tips on maximizing everyday details to enhance your daily outfits, whether you use our interchangeable button system or not. In addition it will share some of the latest fashion forecasting trends and colors.

  • Mix and match – Change button styles from formal to casual, fashion to basic, tonal to color, jeweled to natural, and back. Use them for your button down shirts, polo shirts, casual shirts, blouses or dresses.
  • Easy application - Anyone can do it, without even sewing! No need for a tailor or seamstress.
  • No more loose threads - The Auxilry Interchangeable Button System fastens buttons tightly to every shirt, every time. Never experience a loose button or threads again!
  • Endless designs - The Auxilry line of interchangeable buttons will offer constantly updated designs and choices.
  • Protect your investment - Auxilry interchangeable buttons are crafted with medical-grade polymer. They withstand some of the strongest chemicals and high temperatures. However if you feel safer protecting your buttons from the handling of your local dry cleaner, you can simply remove the interchangeable buttons for safekeeping.
  • Easy replacement - If you lose an interchangeable button, you can replace it without having to replace them all. All collections will always be in stock and you can order any button directly from our online shop. If you lose an interchangeable button, you’ll still have a functional temporary button base as a back up.
  • Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee - The Auxilry Interchangeable Button System will endure many years of regular use. If at any time, you find any defect in material or workmanship – ever - we will gladly replace the item at no charge (except for shipping & handling).

At the moment, all current Auxilry interchangeable buttons, come in the standard men’s and women’s 18 Ligne size (also known as 7/16" or 11.5mm).

Please check the button sizes of your shirts you wish to interchange before purchasing the Auxilry Interchangeable Button System. Additional button sizes are in development. The Auxilry Interchangeable Button System is offered as a kit and in interchangeable button packs.

I have had an interesting fifteen years as a fashion designer and merchandiser.

The idea for Auxilry buttons first occurred to me at a time when I was attending numerous fashion events on a daily basis – more than my outfits could catch up to. I began to wonder… could I simply change my coat buttons to refresh my jacket and not look the same in all my photos? I quickly dismissed that idea after I realized how long it would take to replace them all.

The idea reintroduced itself one day when I was looking at my basic button-down shirts. If I could change my shirt buttons, I thought, I could wear my favorite shirts in a variety of ways. That's when I knew I had to make my interchangeable buttons idea a reality!

At the time, I was a fashion designer working on wearable technology. I began to think out of the box. Why hadn't buttons been redesigned for interchangeability? This is where I began my extensive market research to find anything relevant to the concept. I traveled globally to trade shows, reached out to my industry resources and searched U.S. and international patent libraries for over a year. 

In the meantime, I began to lay down all the conceptual groundwork and technical specs for the product I had in mind. I was fortunate to work with some amazing, precise and highly advanced prototype makers.

We stumbled upon several challenges and wear-tested many variables. The final result was a set of well-balanced, high-quality prototypes that exactly reflect the final product.

Every aspect of the Auxilry Interchangeable Button System is engineered to perfection to create a natural range of motion while maintaining maximum strength.

So far, I have self-funded the design, development, patenting and sampling of the Auxilry Interchangeable Button System. Our final prototype has been thoroughly tested and our manufacturers are ready to go. Every dollar pledged will go towards manufacturing, quality assurance, packaging and shipping.

Our minds and product development never stop! Currently in the development stage are the additional 16 Ligne shirt-button size and two larger sizes for jackets! If we surpass our original funding goal, we will implement a production plan for the new button sizes. You will then be able to interchange your jacket buttons as well!

We are currently building our online store, which will be accessible through your mobile, tablet, and desktop. There you can navigate effortlessly through our interchangeable button collections or purchase replacement parts. Also available exclusively on our website will be our Auxliry LUXE customizable collection of buttons.

We are grateful to everyone who has taken the time to read our campaign and to those who contributed whatever they could to make a difference and help us spread the word. We have spent the last few months working hard to bring our vision to life through this campaign. Our generous supporters have made it worth every minute. Please know that your efforts, even the smallest ones, do not go unnoticed. We will continue to keep you posted on what your support has helped us to achieve.

Auxilry’s vision is to create buttons that are timeless. We go the extra mile to ensure that both our company and our products have integrity.

We are the first company in the world to create an integrated button system that combines no-sewing, self-fastening capabilities with button interchangeability. You are joining our effort to be progressive and forward-thinking - to not only inject stylish details into your daily fashion choices, but also to further develop additional uses in multiple industries for this amazing system. Together we can provide the world with incredible button designs that have personal meaning and set us apart.

Re-invent the way people wear shirts – starting with your very own!

Risks and challenges

As a fashion designer for over 15 years, I have extensive industry experience designing and merchandising collections for numerous fashion brands. In addition I have handled every aspect of manufacturing, from trend forecasting, branding, designing, production, technical specs, traveling to trade shows and factories in many different continents for quality control just to name a few. Furthermore I have acquired great relationships over the years, and have designed all kinds of trims including buttons with some amazing production facilities.

From my experience something unexpected always comes up in the production process. I’ve buffered my timeline to account for unexpected delays that may impact the schedule, so I can deliver the Auxilry Interchangeable Button System to you on time. These things could also impact the delivery schedule:

Volume - sometimes Kickstarter campaigns wildly exceed a project creator’s expectation. If we hit huge volume, it may push the timeline back, within the 15 - 30 day range.

Freight - Port closures and customs delays happen. It’s impossible to know when and for how long. The buffer calculated into the timeline should cover this, but it is an unknown.

My goal is to deliver the highest quality, most effective and innovative interchangeable system to hit the market. I will be working expeditiously delivering transparency all the way through. Please feel free to reach out to me personally anytime should you have a question, or would like to discuss a collaboration or sponsorship, I would love to hear from you.
Thank you for supporting Auxilry and we hope you enjoy our product!

Sincerely,

Anibal Marin, CEO and Founder

Last but not least: any pledge amount brings us closer to our goal -- both of hitting our first production run and reinventing the way we wear our garments.

Thank you so much for your time and support, and I look forward to hearing from each and every one of you!!
