The most memorable occasions involved you, our customers. Since the beginning, Scott has visited our customers all over the world.
His travels brought him to Indonesia, London, Australia, Israel, and all over the USA. During these visits, Scott would often host fan eVENTs where he got a chance to meet and converse with our customers. It was during these informal gatherings that Scott would learn about how best to improve the eVEST designs, along with the entire customer experience
In addition to these eVEST Fan eVENTs, we got to meet customers all over the place and at tradeshows. You have also sent us tons of eVESTimonials over the years.
If you’d like Scott to visit you, please just let him know

We have created lots of SCOTTeVEST jingles over the years. Some even created by the world famous jingle writer, Steve Karmen, who scored most of the memorable jingles from the 60’s and 70’s. Click here to see the commercials Steve wrote.Listen To The Jingles
In what is considered one of the most controversial episodes in the history of the show, Scott was unwilling to give the Sharks a piece of SCOTTeVEST, only the licensing company TEC-Technology Enabled Clothing®. What ensued was a battle with Mark Cuban, a call to Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Scott walking out with $1 million on the table.
When watching the episode, you may have thought Scott was an arrogant jerk just looking for free publicity. Or, perhaps you thought Scott was a brilliant businessman who wouldn't let the Sharks push him around. Well, there are two sides to every story!
Like all reality TV, the episode was edited to increase the perceived tension and there was some important fine print in the contract that influenced Scott's decision.Watch Parts Of Episodes
Scott believes that the Sharks were intentionally 'baiting' him the entire time he was being filmed. Due to the contract fine print, just one mention of the brand SCOTTeVEST would have triggered a clause in the contract and forced Scott to give the Sharks 5% equity or 2% of the profits of SCOTTeVEST. So, he walked away from a deal with the Sharks when it became apparent they were only interested in SCOTTeVEST.
Some people praised Scott for standing up to the Sharks and for keeping his head on his shoulders. Others criticized him, saying that it was all a publicity stunt or that he was disrespectful and a "patent troll."Watch The Aftermath
Even though Scott walked away from a million dollar offer, he has continued to grow SCOTTeVEST successfully without any outside investments.
Today, SCOTTeVEST has sold more then 10 million pockets to thousand of customers worldwide. The business has continued to grow in every facet - no Sharks needed!
The are no hard feelings between Scott and the Sharks. In fact, after the taping almost all of the Sharks came up and shook Scott's hand and told him what a great job he did. Month later, Scott even ran into Mark Cuban and they both took the time for a quick photo.
Wow! We sure have been fortunate to have been featured in a number of movies and TV shows over the years. It is important to note that all of these placements were free to us. We’d just get a call from the wardrobe department one day and they’d request a sample, and years later we’d see it in a movie or TV show.
