About this project
Thank you to everyone who has supported our campaign to fund the Gentleman’s Fashion Anchor. We are encouraged and inspired by the generosity of everyone who believed in us and helped us reach our initial goal. We believe that the Fashion Anchor is a product with great potential.
It isn’t a flashy bit of software or a revolutionary fabric or a new twist on science. It won’t be a billion dollar business one day. It’s a very basic, locally-made product with a specific use and target market. It has a simple, sound business model that is poised to generate revenue right away.
We believe we will be a Kickstarter business that gets to market quickly and enjoys sustained growth. We urge you to continue to support us in raising funds so that we can do more in the short term. Initial production runs of customized backing stock and other branded components will eat up most of the money we have raised so far.
Your contribution is extremely valuable to us in getting to the broadest number of markets in the shortest time. Thank you for your interest in us, and thank you for supporting Kickstarter.
Each anchor is a 1/2" circle of our exclusive patent pending double sided adhesive formula with a suggested price of $15 for a package of 48. The anchor safely and cleanly binds together even the finest fabrics; it comes off clean by hand or in the washing machine; and it is small enough to fit comfortably in your wallet for unexpected emergencies.
The anchor can be used to keep collars in place on dress and casual shirts. It keeps ties from flying loose and maintains the right amount of shirt cuff visible at the bottom of a suit sleeve. It keeps shirt sleeves rolled up, and it locks pocket squares in place as well.
Our versatile Gentleman's Fashion Anchors give you the heightened but subtle sense of style that comes from being well groomed and well put together.
To get a more complete idea of the many uses of the Anchor, watch our video and see the photos below. The Gentleman’s Fashion Anchor will keep any errant piece of clothing in place so your look is always impressively put together.
Business success, and success in our social and romantic lives is dependent on our personal style and image. The Anchor contributes control and consistency to your look. It helps you achieve a more refined, upscale appearance, and you will feel the remarkable power of causing both men and women to see you in a new light.
Over the last 6 months I have been working out licensing deals, perfecting the brand, and doing everything I can to protect our new U.S. and Foreign patent pending men's accessory. There is still a lot to do, but we are on our way, and Kickstarter is the perfect venue from which to launch the next stage.
We need your support to make Necks & Balances a company that provides quality men's accessories of all kinds to the growing men’s fashion industry. Help us “anchor” our new enterprise. I’m sure you will love this innovative new product as much as I do!
