Hello, everyone! As every Tuesday, here we are again featuring an awesome new T-shirt brand!
This time around we’re sharing a really cool clothing line. Truth be told, it’s one of the best ones we’ve featured within the series. Why?
Well, it’s not how the designs are done or how the garments are picked (both are flawless, by the way), it’s because of the way the brand targets its market.
It’s pretty clear when a product is built with passion, when the owners of a business truly believe in the brand’s storytelling, and Jckscrw is a perfect example. An urban brand, created by urban folk.
I’m sure you’ll love it. Enjoy our most recent #TshirtTuesday edition!
Interviewing Alasdair Dewar, founder of Jckscrwn
Tell us about you, what’s your name? Where are you from? What do you do?
First off, my name is Alasdair Dewar or simply Ali to anyone that knows me. I am original from a small brewing town called Tadcaster but now live in Leeds. I own and run the urban streetwear brand JCKSCRWN out of an office located in Grimston, North Yorkshire.
What about your brand? What’s its name? What makes it unique?
What makes the brand unique is simply the way we operate. It was started off the back of a love for music, art and skateboarding and was seen as a way to bring the 3 elements together. We are currently doing this by running our own events up and down the country with skate comps, live art and art stalls and live local music acts. We also offer sponsorships to various extreme sports athletes, not just skateboarders. We are also very proud of the fact that all our products are designed, manufactured and printed in the UK.
If it were a person, what would he/she be like?
If the brand was a person it would definitely be a man about town kind of character. Everyones best mate with an element of mystery and certainly a bit of a dark side about them.
Simplicity is key, describe your brand in three words:
Urban, British, Essential
For how long have you been selling T-shirts? Any remarkable story you learnt on the way? Any advice for beginners?
The brand was actually started as more of a hat brand but very quickly naturally found itself as a full clothing brand that included t’s, jumpers, bags etc. We have been selling t shirts for almost four years now and the one thing I have learnt that is easy to pass on is keep it simple and, as we do, only put out stuff that you would want to wear yourself. Its easy to get away from that and start following trends but just do what works for you and keep in simple!
Key question, why should people be interested in your brand?
We’re an interesting brand for the simple reason we try to give back as much as possible through our involvement with the specific outside industries that we are involved with. You don’t just have to buy a T-shirt from us online, you can come and meet the guys behind the brand at one of our events be it a live music gig or skate competition and really interact with what makes us tick.
Are you on Social Media? Where can we find you?
