Domestically Crowdsourced Menswear

Hucklebury is Revolutionizing Men's Fashion in Amercia

— October 30, 2013 — Fashion
Hucklebury is redefining premium menswear fashion on Kickstarter. By introducing crowdfunding to premium dress shirts, Hucklebury is able to price high quality luxury dress shirts, that normally retail between $215-$550, at a steal of $78 on Kickstarter.

The brand is making high quality shirts available to all of us without having to break the bank in order to buy a premium button down. According to Hucklebury’s founder Parag Jhaveri, “By crowdsourcing, we’re able to build a strong community, remove the guesswork of supply and demand, and truly deliver our products at wholesale prices. Applying concepts from Zara’s case study we’re building a vertically-integrated model, where we cut out the middlemen, operate online, design our own products, and provide a customer-centric solution that is poised to change the face of the menswear”

Hucklebury has partnered with a 100-year old factory that makes clothes for the best brands in United States including Saks Fifth Avenue, Allen Edmonds and John W. Nordstrom. Quality is key for Hucklebury. Each shirt is made from the finest 100% Egyptian cotton, San Francisco-sourced labels and organic mother of pearl buttons.

Shirts are backed with a 365-day guarantee like none other and delivered to the customers with free shipping both ways.

Industry Implications
1. Fashion Retail - Hucklebury's approach to crowdsourcing and direct-to-consumer sales has the potential to disrupt the traditional fashion retail industry, prompting other companies to explore similar models for offering high-quality products at affordable prices.
2. E-commerce - Hucklebury's online presence and customer-centric approach highlight the potential for disruptive innovation in the e-commerce industry, inspiring other online retailers to prioritize customer satisfaction and explore innovative business models.
