About this project
Cohen & Sons Apparel is manufactured with techniques that produce an extremely soft and durable garment with a designer fit without the ridiculous price tag. Unlike major designer brands our apparel won’t shrink or fade after a few washes. It’s time for you to finally get some bang for you buck! If you don’t love our gear for any reason send it right back for free. We’ll pick up the tab both ways.
Can’t relate to the guy with the sweater around his neck sitting at brunch snapping photos of his foie gras?Rather be outside strapping yourself into something with some horsepower or lacing up for something awesome? Me too.
Here’s the deal: we’re all throwing down way to much on designer shirts and jackets that feel like you’re wearing a cardboard box, changes size every time you wash them, and never feel quite right. These shape shifters are almost as frustrating as getting sprayed by a skunk. Anyone that knows the frustration of putting on an overpriced, shrunken, and faded shirt understands the need for a simple solution. I thought I could make it happen.
Like anything fun it all started with a loud crash, some road rash, and a broken bone.The day I fed myself and my motorcycle to the hungry pavement changed everything. That little insurance cash finally gave me the guts to quit my job and go all in to revive my family business.
Slam that rewind button back to 1947. That’s where it all started; Right in the heart of New York City on 536 Broadway. Sixty-Seven years ago my Grandpa Jack flipped the switch and his clothing factory was open for business. His shop cranked out quality garments for almost half a century until competition overseas forced him to shut off the lights and close up shop.
Arm Cast and all; I’ve been ironing out the designs, sourcing the materials, and assembling a seasoned team of production partners to launch an apparel company to produce stylish, comfortable, and reliable clothing. I promise none of our gear is going to shrink, fade, fall apart, or change sizes and pull a Houdini on you. We guarantee you’ll love our stuff. If you don’t, send it back, we’ll pick up the tab.
Now, We’re swinging for the fences. With your support we’ll be able to flip on the lights and bring stylish, comfortable, well made clothing to the guys out there who are grabbing life by the horns and making their hands a little rough. Life is too short to be staring at a screen thinking about what everyone else is doing. Dive in and bring old school quality and awesomely simple garments back to the clothing industry.
Where Do the Funds Go?
Every Single buck I raise through Kickstarter will be used to fulfill the pledges of this campaign. This also includes funding the team needed to produce and fulfill each order on time!
If I’m able to reach my $10,000 dollar goal I will have the gratification of launching a successful project and will continue to develop new and improved apparel. Each dollar after $10,000 will help me move one step closer towards claiming my own shop and following in my Grandfather's footsteps.
Thanks Again for All Your Support! I’m Looking Forward to Shipping You All Your Favorite New Gear!
Cohen & Sons In Action:
Risks and challenges
Every challenge is an opportunity to grow. Since the beginning I have been learning, perfecting my craft, and making Cohen & Sons stronger by the day.
The biggest challenge that I can foresee is hitting our aggressive August delivery timeline if orders exceed 2,000 garments. In anticipation of this we have prepped our production partners and made sure to have potential staff ready to hop on board if things start to heat up!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We will be offering all of our products in size Small through XL.
Upon funding we'll send out our size chart with example photos of the garments on different individuals designed to make selecting the right size a breeze.
Upon funding we will fire off an email with a size chart along with a few photos of an individual in each garment as a reference. At that time we’ll also be able to request you size and color preferences!
Cohen & Sons Apparel is named after my grandfather’s original company. Both my great grandfather and grandfather manufactured clothing in Manhattan, New York. Cohen is the family name and it’s the Sons that carry the torch!
YES! Along the way I have found that women love the Canal Cruiser. These fleeces are EXTREMELY soft and were often difficult to take them away after they tried them on! The “Cruiser” will be available in Small – XL and come highly recommended as a lounger or lazy day staple.
The song is called “Daddy’s Little Girl“ and was written and preformed by my brother’s band The Atomic Walrus. You can check them out here: http://on.fb.me/1lxhMHY
All of the music behind our other videos was scored and preformed by my brother Max Cohen.
Since I was a kid I loved shooting and editing! Kickstarter was just the perfect opportunity to combine video with my apparel company!
