Kilted Bros - The Kilt Expansion

Hi. We’re Nick & Jefferson a couple of best friends who wear kilts everywhere - jogging, going to the diner, going grocery shopping, walking name it, we do it in our kilts. Because of our similar looks, people started calling us the Kilted Brothers .

Kilted Bros is celebrating our 3rd year in business. Our customers and our fans have been with us since before we ever opened online, and the support we have received from everyone has been unbelievable.

In 2014 we opened our online shop
In 2015 we moved to the 5th Street Arcade
In 2016 we moved from our kiosk space to our 13’ x 13’ retail home

Who Wears These Kilts?
Our shop isn’t a traditional Celtic shop. Our customers are the weirdos. The misfits. The outcasts. We celebrate everyone who walks through our door or shops online with us, no matter their size, shape, color, or whom they love. Our customers become our friends, and our friends help promote the company. We are proud that our customers and friends want to model our kilts, so on our website and social media you’ll see the faces of the real guys who wear Kilted Bros kilts.

Why Are You Trying To Raise Cash?
We are announcing our biggest change ever: We are moving into a new retail shop!

The new shop will be 4x larger and will include an expanded cargo kilt area, a full wedding line, samples of every kilt we offer, Charlie Jackets, accessories and our heritage-quality wool kilts, With this expansion*, we will be one of the very few kilt shops to carry both casual and formal kilts.*

Construction on the new shop begins after the holidays. New walls are being erected, a new floor is being installed, and new displays and mannequins need to be purchased. There are plenty of little surprises for the new place that will make this a destination shop you will want to visit.

We are looking for some love from our amazing Kilted Bros family. This holiday season, the new shop will be dark while we wait for the construction to begin in the new year. To help raise funds for new paint, lights, rugs, furniture, etc, we are holding a “Light The Way” fundraising event. Your donations will go toward building the best kilt shop in the USA.

As always, we have some unique perks that you won’t find anywhere else. Every donation will be recognized with electronic flickering candles that will light our new shop windows this holiday season. For those who are especially generous, we are offering some perks that embody the true Kilted Bros spirit.

If you have questions about any of the perks or about the new shop, please drop us a line. We would love to hear from you.

Thank you for your donations and support. We can’t wait to show you the big reveal.

How the Funds will Be Used:
We are focusing on getting the main store (main floor) completed first. To do so, we are trying to raise $6218 which will cover IKEA Furniture and Lighting, Display Cabinets, Mannequins, Rugs, Art, and some Dressing Room furnishing.

If you help us break that goal, we have an entire basement to complete. Those goals include $5200 in carpeting, $1250 in tables and chairs, and equipping two therapy rooms at $250 each.

But what if we meet THAT goal? We are still going to need to purchase about $8000 in inventory for Charlie and Argyle jackets, one of each wool kilt we stock, plus more awesome sporrans, belts, and accessories.

We would also like to carve out a space for a featured artist. We would create a pop-up shop to feature art/gear/jewelry that is in-line with the Kilted Bros philosophy.

We are running this promotion through the month of November 2017

Here are all of the reward levels in detail:
