I’m pleased to kick off the new year by announcing that Scottevest is the official travel clothing provider of Everything Everywhere.
I’ve been wearing Scottevest gear every single day for over a year now. If you’ve seen me at any point in 2011, the odds are you saw me wearing my black Fleece 5.0 jacket. It is literally the only jacket I will wear when going through an airport. I can quickly and easily dump all the metal in my pockets into my jacket and be through security in no time.
I’ve very fussy about who I work with. I get bombarded every day with requests from companies to mention or use their products. For me working with Scottevest was an easy decision:
- I use their product. Not only do I wear Scottevet gear every day, I’ve been recommending it to other travelers as well. I know many people who also bought Scottevest gear and have had positive things to say.
- They get the internet. Compared to other clothing companies, Scottevest is rather young. They grew up online and they “get it”. They don’t have brick and mortar stores. They have a strong social media presence. You’ve probably seen Scottevest gear being worn by internet personalities like Leo Laporte or discussed on other websites. They have the internet in their corporate DNA which is a big deal to me.
- Strong CEO. I think any great company needs to have a founder that has a vision. Scott Jordan (the Scott in Scottevest) has one. He’s active on Twitter and will often take the time to talk to customers directly. He is a savvy marketer who is front and center of the company.
We have several interesting things planned for the next few months including giveaways, meetups, swag for the travel photography tour and more.
Welcome aboard Scottevest!
