We have been keeping quiet lately, busy working away on top secret projects that can finally be revealed! Maybe you’ve already noticed some changes if you’ve stopped by the main website lately. The logo has been tweaked just slightly because Fellow Threads is now called The Fellow Company. The name change came about mostly out of necessity; excitedly, our little business is growing and we needed an encompassing name rather than a name that indicates just one type of product. Our clothing, or our “Threads” as our customers know them by, is now its very own department within The Fellow Company.

Wait! There’s more! In addition to the name change, we have added a second department to The Fellow Company. In November of this year, we will have the pleasure of launching a line of all-natural bath and beauty products we have decided to name Fellow Organics. Without giving too much away, we can confidently say that the things we’ve been experimenting with over the recent months are everything you want and need in your daily regimen.

November must be our month because you know that insanely popular event that takes place twice a year… it’s where fans and creators of online videos come together… mainly YouTube… you know, Playlist Live? Well, we’re picking out our outfits now because The Fellow Company is headed to Playlist Tri-State. We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this amazing event, but that’s all we’re going to say about that for now! More information in the coming weeks, including brand new designs! It’s safe to say things are going to get crazy around here, and we happily welcome the chaos because it means we have an even greater opportunity to connect with you guys.
If you’ve been a long-time customer of ours, we love and appreciate your continued support. You know exactly who you are, and we are always grateful. If you’re brand new to The Fellow Company family, then welcome. You’re in for exciting times.
We have had the busiest summer in quite a while. No complaints here, busy is good! We haven’t had a whole lot of time to sit down and write quality blog posts, but we have had a camera on hand. Sometimes it’s much more convenient to just film the moments we want to share with you, and that’s exactly what we did. We devoted our time to Warped Tour and LeakyCon this summer — meaning not only did we attend these events, but we designed all new products to go along with them, and sold them ourselves at booths. All the labor is done by yours truly, hard work isn’t always glamorous, friends. Being able to interact directly with our customers is one of our most favorite things to do. You guys are always so awesome. Now onto the videos! We hope you enjoy them.
This video was filmed pre Warped and LeakyCon. It was the night before the public opening of the Diagon Alley expansion at Universal Studios Orlando, and we decided it would be a good idea to eat Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans. Spoiler alert: it’s not. This video features two of the five Harry Potter inspired T-shirts we created just for LeakyCon. You can buy them here!
We only did the 3 Florida dates of Vans Warped Tour this year instead of the 8 we tackled last year. I can guarantee you, though, that the experience proved to be just as sweaty and busy. Tour was undeniably different this year, but we did everything we could to make our brief time memorable. Sidenote: we did quickly find out that the reason the tent next to us had an immense line of excited girls in front of it was because of YouTuber VeeOneEye. He was very sweet to his fans, and gave his full attention to every single person he met.
This was, easily, our favorite of the three to film. All of the footage was recorded via our iPhones, so we apologize for the grainy quality. On the second day at LeakyCon we decided to put up a simple green sign promising free candy to anyone willing to share their favorite Danisnotonfire and/or AmazingPhil quote with us. We were shocked by the amount of people not only eager to share, but who let us film them for a YouTube compilation. People LOVE Dan and Phil.
We just want to say, thank you to everyone we met this summer for being so awesome. Going into new or chaotic situations is sometimes overwhelming and a bit stressful, but everyone we met (besides the inevitable party poopers of the world) was wonderful. Thank you for making our summer a great one!
There is so much brand new beautiful goodness over on Fellow Threads right now! We designed six new tops that are extremely easy to style and wear during the warmer months. We can’t wait to wear the heck out of these this summer, especially while we’re on sweltering hot Warped Tour where less is definitely more when it comes to putting clothes on. We put together some themes on Polyvore for your viewing and inspirational pleasure, just to get some ideas on how we might style our new tops. Each one is lightweight and versatile, and can really be styled with anything. We want to see how you style our pieces, so be sure to tag Fellow Threads in absolutely anything you photograph yourself in that we sell. We’ll be sure to feature you!
Right now at fellowthreads.com we are holding a gigantic, too good to be true, everything under $20 spring sale! We have twelve exclusive items on sale, and once they’re gone THEY’RE GONE. Some of these designs are the first ideas we put together at the very start of Fellow Threads. Personal favorites include the Atlas Tee, the Hometown Hero crewneck and the flowing army green Roadtripping tunic. Let us not forget the, now totally exclusive, After Party shirts we did for the band well over a year ago. The band is no longer together, but we have the last remaining shirts, so be sure to grab yours before they’re gone forever. These designs in particular bring back so many good memories, but we’re ready to move onward and upward. There’s nothing like a little spring cleaning to get the inspiration flowing.
If you have any questions about individual pieces / pricing / shipping / anything at all, please don’t hesitate to ask! Happy spring shopping!
This winter has been a significant one for us. We moved our company from Indianapolis and set up a brand new office in Orlando, and we used that transition to really plan and brainstorm what Fellow Threads is all about. It may seem like we’ve been somewhat quiet these past few months, when really we have been tirelessly developing brand new products and finalizing our upcoming spring and summer adventures. Well, it’s finally time to start bringing all of our hard work to life! On Friday night, we took to Twitter with two, huge announcements:
On March 14, we are releasing ALL NEW beautiful products for spring and summer. We have new styles of denim customization, and we plan on keeping our most popular T-shirt designs in stock (possibly updating a few). Most excitingly, however, we are introducing, for the first time, a selection of bags. All of the bags are hand-stitched by us and the fabric is personally selected by our head designer and founder, Lauren. Futhermore, and what you don’t see from the preview image above, is that there will be multiple versions of these bags to choose from that are aimed to fit each of your individual styles. We truly believe you guys will love the bags just as much as we do. Be sure to visit fellowthreads.com to get your hands on them!
Many of you guessed it! We are officially back on Vans Warped Tour this summer! We had such an amazing time last summer that we just couldn’t pass up the chance to experience it all again. We were completely taken aback by how supportive and enthusiastic and lovely you guys were in person, and we want to see you all again, and meet even more of you this time around. Like last time, we are opting for select dates of the tour rather than the entire shabang, so when we have the dates and locations locked down we will post them ASAP. We can’t wait to be back on the road! You can check out our adventures from Warped Tour 2013 on our main website!
We are thrilled with how our summer is turning out so far, and it hasn’t even happened yet. Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to receive updates and information about everything mentioned above. This is just the tip of the iceberg, people. We have even more planned for you guys, but we’re just going to let all of this simmer for now. Get ready. Things are about to get exciting and, should I say, magical around here.
