Premium AMERICAN MADE lifestyle brand keeping you and our economy "On the Move!" Read more
This project was successfully funded on August 16, 2013.
About this project
Oscar Mike is active life. 100% American made. 100% Veteran owned.
The term “Oscar Mike” comes from military radio jargon used on the front lines. It translates to “On the Move”. To us, being Oscar Mike means being active, staying positive and living life to its absolute fullest.
We are a group of veterans, athletes, artists and individuals from all walks of life who want to embody the spirit of hard work on which America was founded. We’re striving to bring back a tough, can-do spirit to our great country, and we want to look bad-ass while doing it.
Because we support you.
Our mission is to keep you “On the Move” in every aspect of life. We believe that by staying active and focusing on the next upcoming goal, anyone can realize their full potential. We want to keep you inspired to do just that.
We also help rehabilitate disabled veterans and individuals via adaptive sporting events through the efforts of our non-profit organization The Oscar Mike Foundation (registered 501c3). We organize and participate in high-energy extreme events for disabled and able bodied individuals alike. We don’t view disabilities as road blocks, but more as challenges to own and overcome.
No rush, no reward.

We want to expand. The more you help us raise with this campaign, the more we can make. With your help, we'll roll out:
Here's a closer look at the plans:
Daunting? Maybe, but we're not scared to take it all head on. We've gone to great lengths to make sure we have the necessary steps in place for when we meet our goals. The sky's the limit as far as we're concerned.
Believe it or not our goal isn't to be the only all American made clothing company. We would LOVE competition.
Our real mission is to have such an impact on the industry that we force our competitors to bring their manufacturing back to America. We know this is not only a viable way to produce goods, but the right thing for our country and our economy.
In 1960, 95% of the clothing we wore was made here in the U.S. As of 2011, it's down to a scant 3%. We'd love to see that statistic reversed and experience the good it would do for us as a nation.
Why shouldn't we have the option to buy American for every single item in our closets? This is where it starts. Stand with us. With your support, we can see this mission through.

Risks and challenges
Already having one successful Kickstarter project behind us, we are confident that we have taken all necessary steps to ensure that this one is an even bigger success.
Due to the potentially large amount of inventory we will be shipping out upon completion of our project, we will be in constant contact with all of our suppliers and distributors throughout the project to ensure they can keep up with demand.
As our orders increase and the volume puts pressure on our internal resources for fulfillment, we have plans in place to hire temporary staff and increase our volunteers as necessary.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
