Kickstarter Fashion & Accessories: Wallets, Shirts and Swim Trunks

Friday, June 28, 2013

I want to introduce a new series on, covering interesting Fashion & Accessory projects on Kickstarter. There have been a number of successful projects in the men's fashion area and I am keeping a keen eye on what's going on at the moment. Lots of the projects are from small, local companies and I think there are some really cool ideas out there. 

Band-it extra slim minimal wallet

A slim wallet, big enough to hold around 10 cards  and folded cash. Seems pretty good for everyone in countries that does not use coins. You can choose from different leather options or from elastic materials. There are a lot of different material combinations possible.

Prices at Kickstarter are very affordable, starting at $13 (gets you one of the wallets). Add $3 for international delivery. The project is not yet fully funded, but it seems they will surely reach full funding until the deadline in around 2 weeks. 

Mianzi - Shirts Drool Over

Available both for men and women, these shirts come both in short- and long-sleeved versions. The shirts promise to be super soft, naturally anti-bacterial, anti odor, quick drying, eco friendly and much more. 

The designs are simple and convincing with attention to detail. What makes them very special: 70% of the fabric is bamboo fibre. A great material for shirts, it's becoming quite big, I've seen a number of local shops selling bamboo shirts in Vietnam already. 

Prices start at $34 for the short-sleeved versions, add $10 for international delivery. The project is almost funded with 9 days to go. 

THE BLUE LINE by Voller - A Better Swim Trunks

Voller swim trunks claim to be the best on the market for the price. If you join the Kickstarter project, you can get a pair for as low as $30, add $5 to even have your monogram added - add $10 for international delivery. 

Custom swim shorts, there you go. They come in various sizes and are always available as regular and long. 

There are some really good designs and the guys are already way above their target.
