Hi Everyone,

i just wanted to briefly share my Kickstarter project I recently launched. The brand is called Field Machine and it is a baseball inspired lifestyle brand. Included in the collection is a premium tshirt, hoodie, Melton wool fitted hat, hand made letter belts, and a waxed canvas weekender bag. Thanks for your time!

You can order through Kickstarter. You basically pledge an amount and receive a "reward" for that pledge level. You are only charged if I reach or exceed my campaign goal. The items will take some time to produce so keep that in mind. It is essentially a platform to test product ideas and generate the necessary pre-orders to get the ball rolling.

looks great, I just might have to pledge for the big package even though I'm trying to whittle down the clutter/clothes in my house.

I like the belts as well. It's going to be difficult to sell them for $40+ since you just started up. You might want to discount them a little to establish market share and slowly raise the price over time.

Good eye Goldy ! (it was so cold that day! Day before St. Pattys) Any support would be greatly appreciated. I have some great plans for the future I hope to get to including a code 55 wallet and belt. I have the leather, I have the manufacturer, just need the money.

*FYI the belts are priced where they are because there is a lot of labor involved. I would love to drop it once I get some Horween belts in the collection but unfortunately can't do it now. While I do like to make money the ultimate goal is to make products for guys like us. Products that last, products that look great, and products that you can't find anywhere else.

Good point about Tanner Goods Dirty, I didn't know if anyone would be familiar with them. One way or another some of these things will happen. Just may be slower than I want it to. The code 55 belt will most certainly happen. If my Kickstarter doesn't make it I will just kick it back down to hobby status for now instead of a business. I have samples of all the horween baseball glove leathers as well as their chromexcel offerings, and a big industrial sewing machine. It's time to stop making excuses about not having the time. Either way I will post some stuff eventually! Thanks!

Some leather samples and supplies pics. (trust me, I have a LOT of leather in my house. this is just a little) I also threw up a pic of my machine I need to start using. Goals for this summer are belts and glove bags (easy) and finally attempt to make a glove (not easy).
