Menswear’s First Interchangeable Sports Jacket – One jacket with unlimited styles and designs for men who care about fashion

iCrowdNewswire - May 20, 2016

Menswear’s First Interchangeable Sports Jacket

 

One jacket with unlimited styles and designs for men who care about fashion.

 

“A game changing, disgustingly disruptive product.”

 

What if there were one sports jacket that can give you multiple options to your style and personality? What if there were one sports jacket that can give you multiple options to your style from day to evening wear? What if there were one sports jacket that can give you the same look that all your other jackets have in your closet and more?. Look no further, we have the answer.

 

The Gimono Exchange – The Gimono Exchange is a (patent pending 62/269,258) sports jacket that can change it’s lapel and collar off its jacket and replace it with another lapel and collar to the owner’s liking. He can have a traditional jacket with a notch lapel and unzip it off to replace it with a shawl lapel of a different color, texture, width, or fabric. This allows the customer to be more fashionable and creative with his sports jacket. If he wants to go to a sports bar and watch his favorite team but still look distinguish and casual, he can exchange the lapel to a hoodie in his team colors all with the same jacket. Gene Gimono is also working on newly style looks to attach to the jacket to give the male customer a more fashionable presence. All with the same jacket.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bio

Gene is a fashion designer in Atlanta that has serviced his customers for over 10 years with great quality and style in custom clothing. He started with menswear but his women’s collection carried his business to a well known designer. He has  shown his collection in New York Fashion Week, Milan, Atlanta, and Charleston. Now he plans to revive his menswear with a brand new concept for men.

 

Get Creative With Your Blazer

Men’s fashion has start to change and more men are looking to be fashionable. The only problem is that women’s wear is the dominant industry so most designers get their ideas from  women’s trends and translate that into menswear. That direction has led to menswear looking more feminine than masculine. We have the jacket that will give you the style you want.

The one style that hasn’t changed is the male suit. It is usually a tradition suit with different options like 2 or 3 button, single breast or double breast, notch or peak lapel, patch or welt pockets, different colors and fabrics, etc. The silhouette and patterns stay the same. In a nut shell, menswear is boring. There aren’t many personalities to the suit or sports jacket, no texture and lack of creative patterns and design. Gene Gimono is looking for your support to help him change that.

 

 

 

How It Works

Simply unzip the collar and lapel from the inside of the jacket and replace it with another to give you a different style.

The Plan

Gene Gimono plan to develop its product with a well known men’s manufacturer in New York (made in the USA). After the samples are made and approved we plan to take our collection to market. To do that we will show our collection at MAGIC trade show in Vegas and the PROJECT show in New York, where retail buyers from all over the world come to look for new product and purchase for their stores. We will also have a website to take custom orders for those that want unique colors, fabrics and designs. We will have limited designs and custom designs submitted by you, the customer. You will get to send your own design and fabrics for a one of a kind lapel for your jacket

You will receive your jackets before the retail stores get a chance to hang them on their rack. While others will only see them in a magazine you will actually have one. Be one of the first to change the way men wear fashion and their sports jackets. Be unique in your combinations.

Risks and Challenges

Our factory partners are experienced in all things menswear. They have manufactured clothing for Kenneth Cole, Dockers, Ben Sherman and others. We believe in the quality of their work and the ability to have finished product on time. However, delays could occur because sometimes even experts run into snags on a newly product. We are prepared to promptly handle anything that comes between you, our favorite customers, and your sports jacket. If all else fails your jacket will be made locally in Atlanta and sent to you in a timely matter.

Other Ways You Can Help

Can’t contribute financially? You can still help by sharing our campaign to a friend, family member, blogger or someone you think will find our product fashionable and right for them.

Investments

We are also looking for investment opportunities in our product. The Gene Gimono Exchange is a patent pending design product and we are looking for financial partners to take this idea to mass market.
