We’ve made it to where we are today, more than 10 million pockets sold, with the winning combination of amazing team members, great customer service, excellent relationships with our vendors and manufacturers as well as our office dogs! As huge dog lovers, we’ve created an extremely dog-centric work environment and you’ll notice our love for animals comes through in everything we do. Our dogs help keep us sane throughout the hectic work weeks and we provide them with almost as many perks as we do our employees!

We hope you enjoy our clothing as much as we enjoy engineering it for you. To meet our team and office dogs, hover over the photos below – if interested in joining our team, please see here.

Our Products

Design Process

While the idea of “more, and smarter, pockets” may seem simple, the execution and technical aspects of engineering clothing with as many as 42 useful pockets comes with a laundry list of challenges to overcome. How do we overcome these challenges? With years of research into what makes the perfect pocket, how to properly distribute weight across each garment and, most importantly, feedback from our customers.

What service means to us

Everything we do here at SCOTTeVEST is to ensure our customers have positive experiences in our clothing. With so many features packed into each garment and so many styles to choose from, we know questions are bound to come up. To help you pick the perfect style and size, we have customer service representatives standing by to answer any questions you may have or give you a one-on-one, guided personal shopping experience!

Our Guarantee

We love what we do and we stand behind every product we make. We’ve been using the same manufacturers for more than a decade and they consistently deliver superior craftsmanship, but sometimes mistakes do happen. We want all of our customers to have the best possible experiences wearing our gear – to ensure you do, all our products come with a 2-year warranty covering your garment from any/all manufacturer defects (but does not cover general wear and tear).

Scott Jordan

As CEO & Co-Founder of SCOTTeVEST, Scott E. Jordan is involved in every aspect of the business, from engineering the perfect pockets, maintaining media relationships and "big picture" stuff like steering the future of the company.
