Guys, so I have finally reached the stage in my life were I am able to begin my own company. I have put in the ground work, done my research and even studied the trade both in and outside the classroom. I'm a year out of undergrad and ready to start contributing to the very thing I enjoy doing more than my girl friend!
Over the last 3yrs I have been studying under my mentor and own/creator of the company "STANDUP FIGHTER". The company that creates and supplies your favorite UFC fighter's must have gear, the THAI PRO series. Some of you may be familiar with this brand. Its only the hottest thing in UFC. Check it out http://www.standupfighter.com/
Anyhow, I'm up next.... so I come to you with questions seeking feedback and honesty.
I currently have a few items in the works and should be getting the samples back soon... But I wish to hear for you the rider! The company name is still under wraps as we are still checking the copyrights and playing with domain names etc. We hope to make the name official REAL SOON.
The company will focus on supplying an large array of protective gear. Gloves, Rain gear, Leather and Mesh jackets, even Track 1pc and 2pc. The best thing is... we currently have a real functioning back protector prototype that is SICK!
We will leave the helmet industry along but everything else we are gunning for the top.
Guys this is a opportunity to be apart of a movement. As we will be providing High quality gear, Designs, Snug fitments as we will be taking customer feedback and implementing them into our work.
So as stated previously we are focusing on getting a summer jacket designed and produced so that the we can begin the tweaking. While neither pricing nor a drop date has been mentioned we are working elegantly on our end to produce a quality product. Once the Co. name and domain names have been sorted out. Look for a facebook group and other social media fan pages for support. When the time is appropriate we randomly select 3-5ppl maybe more to receive the 1st batch of gear. Which in return the winners would be expected field test them and provide constructive feedback.
Once again we arrive at this question....What is it that you look for in a riding jacket. Spring and summer are quickly approaching and I feel its only appropriate that one of the first projects we bring to market be a summer mesh jacket. So again I ask what is it that you look for when buying gear?
Colors?, Sizing?, Band?, Protection?. Price?, Graphics?, Pocket placements?
Would you even give a upcoming company a chance? When you much larger brands to choose from? If so at what cost?
While I have ideals and a solid foundation and works in progress my personal opinions mean squat if they are undesirable.
So please post up your thoughts and comments.
