TA Picks: 5 Live Kickstarter Campaigns We Like Right Now!

Turn An Idea Into A Reality 

As a start-up, Tailored Avenue needed a way to raise money in order to bring their debut product, The Perfect Part to life. Not wanting to give up equity, they turned to crowdfunding. This is an excellent way for companies to debut their idea, product, or company and make it a reality. Here are a few campaigns live right now that caught our eye:

BIRLINE: Super Slim Watches & Harris Tweed Straps

Birline 1We can’t enough of watches and neither should you. A classy watch during the week should strengthen your suit and work attire. Your weekend watch should offer style and uniqueness, with the ability to compliment any outfit. Birline watches offer both class and style.

Founded by two Swedish gents, Alex and Andy, after meeting each other in Barcelona. They have spent the last 12 months working on an ultra-thin watch with a unique Harris Tweed strap. This started out as a search for the perfect watch: affordable, versatile and, of course, beautiful. There disappointment with what was available led to the idea that they should design and make our own line of watches with high quality materials.


Between the rose gold and silver stainless steel faces and the variety of Harris Tweed straps to choose from, the options are endless. Birline is unique and has no restrictions.

These watches are going for $119 on Kickstarter right now, 50% off retail.

Wood Wallet & Business Card Holder

proof 1Everyone needs a wallet, period. One that can carry all your cards and money without being extremely bulky in your pocket is necessary; being stylish at the same time is a plus. At Tailored Avenue we love wooden accessories, but is it possible to combine wallets with the element of wood? Thanks to Proof, who has created uniquely designed wooden wallets. Each wallet comes from different types of wood, creating different looks and styles. In the past, Proof had successfully created and funded their first wooden wallet on Kickstarter, the ‘Slab’. After getting some feedback, they have come back even stronger by improving their original wallet and creating 3 additional products.

For their current Kickstarter campaign, Proof is offering 4 distinct wallets; The Slab 2.0, The Flip, The Block, and The Arch.  The Slab 2.0, the second version the original Proof wallet, is composed of two pieces of brass wood and a silicone band to hold your cards and money in-between. The Flip takes on the look of a vintage cigarette holder and is made from pine wood. This accessory allows you to hold your business cards, spare change, pieces of gum, and more. The Block is made from an eccentric zebra wood with a slight curve to the wood allowing you to securely hold 2-6 cards. Lastly, The Arch, made from pine wood, this wallet has simple style and offers comfort by arching to the shape of your leg.  All Proof wallets offer distinct style and uses.
