It’s truly a dream to be able to even write this post. This time last year, our company was just coming into form and its launch was still to be decided. As they have time after time over the course of the year, stars aligned and we were able to launch as The Groomsman Suit on Kickstarter. Since our first day on February 17th, 2016, we have exceeded all of our expectations, pushed us so far beyond our comfort zone, and become the most fulfilling thing we’ve ever done. Here are some quick stats and highlights from our first year and photos of some (not all) of the weddings we’ve had the honor to be a part of.

  • Almost 100 suits sold in our first month exceeding our Kickstarter campaign goal by more than 30%
  • Selected out of 1700 companies as one of 10 small businesses to receive a FedEx Small Business Grant
  • Orders are coming in from all over the US and internationally
  • Achieved a milestone by registering our 500th order in early December, 2016
  • Outfitted groomsmen and bridesmen in over 30 weddings in 2016. Visit our real wedding page to see these weddings. 
  • Been rated 5 out of 5 stars in customer reviews along with testimonials such as:

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of our family and friends. We are so very grateful for each and every one of you! Wishing you all the best in the new year ahead!
