Time moves fast. Ten years ago when we started SCOTTEVEST, the world was a different place. The MP3 player was... lame. The laptop computer was bulky and ran for 45 minutes before needing to be plugged in. And air travel was about to be forever changed by some major global events-and the increase in airport security would soon become a traveler's Waterloo.
Because I was traveling a lot for work, and was carrying my electronic gadgets with me on the road, unloading and reloading my pockets to get through airport security was getting old, fast.
I thought: there must be a better way…
…and that thought led Laura and me into making a vest that I could wear for my business trips, that would carry all my electronic gadgets, and personal items inside hidden pockets sewn into the clothing, that wouldn't look bulky or overstuffed.
The "Scott's Electronics Vest" was born-- the prototype that eventually evolved into our SCOTTEVEST Travel Vest, and inspired over 50 hidden pocket clothing items we now have in our current product line.
Looking back now, it's funny to think that all of this started out with just a simple idea to carry more things, and a belief that we could make clothing that helps make your life easier.
Customers send us pictures and stories from around the globe, showing us how they use their SCOTTEVEST clothing to keep their lives organized, when they are on the go. They tell us all about where their adventures are taking them, and what they've learned about themselves in the process.
Even though we now have hundereds of thousands of customers around the globe, we never tire of hearing about their latest adventures, and we'd encourage you to add your story to that list-and to become part of the SCOTTEVEST family.
It's your passion, as a customer, that drives our business and allows us to innovate and evolve our clothing line-since without you, we wouldn't be able to pursue our passion either. Because of that, we go out of our way to make sure that you are getting the best quality, finest craftsmanship and superior customer support from us, every step of the way. We want to help you wring the most out of life. Whatever passions are calling your name, we encourage you to take heed-listen to your muse and follow it on a little journey we like to call, "The Trip of Your Life".
Whether it's a trip around the world, or a trip to the local grocery store-adventures await you daily, and exploring them is what ultimately makes the trip of your life, rich and memorable. We appreciate being able to share the experiences from the trip of our lives, with you, and look forward to hearing from you, and learning more about what you've up to in the days ahead.
