Stantt Is Making Your New Favorite Shirt

We admit it, we are on the fence about Kickstarter companies. We don’t want our readers to have to wait six months to get the product they are craving, and what if the company never reaches it’s goal? We also realize there are some pretty sweet ideas popping up on Kickstarter and we are always up for helping the new kid. That said, when we learned about Stantt shirting we held out a bit to see how they progressed. Well, when they were fully funded in four hours, we knew they were on to something.

The concept is simple: All men don’t fit into a small, medium or large. And yes, higher end brands  have collar and sleeve length options but they still don’t always work or come in exactly your length. At the new e-commerce site, Stantt (derived from Constant Improvement) , they ask you to measure your arms, chest and waist, send in the measurements and BOOM, you got a shirt that fits you just right.

Friends Kirk and Matt began working on this concept two years ago and have zero background in fashion, “We think this works in our favor,” they told us. They have 50 different sizing options so if the first shirt they send doesn’t fit they most likely know what is not working and will send you the shirt of your dreams. That happened to this editor and I have to admit, the shirt fits better than most in my closet.

Fabrics are 100% cotton and come from Japan, Korea and China and are all hand sewn in  New Jersey. All the buttons are made in upstate New York. The boys are very focused on having as much made in America as possible. The best part is the price, $78 on Kickstarter and around $98 when they launch. That’s what we pay for a shirt off the rack at most mall stores and our sleeves  still resemble arms of Orangutans.

Stantt is taking orders through November and will be shipping in early 2014.

This man fell overboard, and wearing a watch helped save his life
This may be the main reason you should be wearing a watch
watch saves man who fell overboard islands surrounded by boats

We talk a lot about the importance of wearing a watch. It is an elegant way to show class and sophistication. Since World War II, they have been the go-to men's accessories. While women wear everything from bracelets to rings, necklaces to earrings, men keep it simple, and many of us opt for a watch. But a watch can be more than just an elegant piece of jewelry; it can be a tool, something you can use to get the job done. And in one very interesting instance, something that can save your life.

Cambridge 61-year-old Will Fransen embarked on a fishing trip off the coast near the Alderman Islands, and it turned into a nightmare. After snagging what he expected was a marlin, Fransen fell overboard. As they do, the boat starts to drift away from him, and he soon realizes that he isn't going to be able to catch it. Finding he was thirty nautical miles away from the shore and without his forty-foot boat, Fransen found himself in the middle of a real-life horror movie.
