digz apparel

A few weeks ago I received an email from an aspiring entrepreneur and New York native named Michael McWilliams. He wanted to know if I'd be interested in supporting his surf inspired clothing company, digz apparel. I promptly replied, asking for additional information about the brand: Where will it be made? How is this different than Hurley? Etc. Michael wrote back before the end of that afternoon. He told me they were planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign and that he'd pass along a link as soon as it was online. Another email arrived a few weeks in the future. Inside was a link to the aforementioned crowd funding campaign, as well as information about the brand and the kind of clothing they're planning to produce.

A company committed to manufacturing in America - using only the highest quality components - digz initial offering is "a blend of sportswear and menswear inspired by... our undying appreciation for the traditions that defined the world in which we grew up." Included in their inventory is a traditional pair of surf trunks, an all-season parka, khaki pants and plaid shirts. In addition to producing their product here in the United States (something I am a staunch supporter of), a portion of every Digz purchase will go toward the TimboFund, a 501c3 organization dedicated to helping those affected by Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
