I didn’t realize it at the time, but we were the very first clothing brand in the world without a store or catalog to do so. I knew that selling direct would connect my company with our customers on a much more personal level (at least I learned something from those door-to-door cemetery sales!). It turned out I was right. Our business grew as our customers appreciated what we were doing and provided us with extremely helpful feedback, ideas for new garments, additional features and so much more.
As more people joined the "pocket revolution," it became clear that the mission of SCOTTeVEST extended far beyond just vests. Today, with over 10 million pockets sold, SCOTTeVEST has developed hundreds of styles of multi-pocket clothing for men and women. Whether you are a professional on the go, traveler, technophile, outdoor adventurer or just all-around busy person, our pockets free up the clutter in your life and leave you free to focus on the moment, not where your stuff is (or isn’t!).
On my way to becoming the world’s self-proclaimed "Pocket Man," I’ve made mistakes and learned quite a few lessons. I love sharing these lessons and my tips/tricks with other entrepreneurs and even competitors. To do so, I’ve made numerous public appearances including Shark Tank Season 3, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, as well as recently speaking at Google HQ and on the Fashion Forward panel on wearable technology at CES 2016.
The pocket revolution is not over. If anything it’s just getting started. If you are interested in booking me to speak at your next event or simply connecting to talk pockets and passion, here is my personal phone number (208-471-4704), email address, Twitter, Facebook, and Google + accounts. I look forward to hearing from you!
