Reasons to Invest

WE’RE GROWING & WE MAKE MONEY - We saw more than 8x revenue growth in 2020…ranking us in the Top 1% of over 1 million brands on Shopify. Plus, we’re profitable.
WE’RE CROWD FAVORITES - We are a company built by the crowds: Hitting our Kickstarter funding goal in 2 days, Appearing on Shark tank, Selling out on Good Morning America in under 5 hours, raising $50k in under 2 minutes on an inventory crowdfunding platform, and being named Best of Touch of Modern in 2019.
WE’RE PLANTING OUR FLAG IN A BIG MARKET - The Global Loungewear market will reach $37.7 billion in revenue in 2021 and we're carving out our niche as the go-to brand in the men’s robe category. Thanks to our license with the NBA, we are taking over the locker room & increasing our visibility with the NBA, NCAA & NFL.

As of the time of this Regulation Crowdfunding offering, Dude Apparel Brand LLC is contemplating converting to a Delaware C-Corporation. The Company plans to convert once it raises $400,000. Certain information disclosed on this page and in the Company's offering materials reflects the its information post-conversion.

Owning the Locker Room...and Beyond



In sports, Nike, Adidas & Under Armour own the field.

And Gatorade owns the Sideline.  

But who owns the locker room?  

That’s where DudeRobe comes in.


We launched DudeRobe with a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in 2017 and just one week later, Shark Tank reached out to US.  Three months after that we were in LA pitching the Sharks.  And 4 months later we aired on ABC.

 


Since then, we’ve been seen in several pro sports locker rooms and on some of the biggest names in the NBA & NFL.  We sold out on Good Morning America in under 5 hours and we raised $50K on an inventory crowdfunding platform in under 2 minutes.



And we’ve only just scratched the surface. We plan to dominate the locker room, bedroom, and bathroom, becoming the next big name in lounging, recovery and wellness. Our goal is to help people lounge and recover so they can come back even better tomorrow.



Founder Howie Busch negotiated Under Armour's first ever licensing deal (with the NFL) 25 years ago. Fast forward 25 years and Howie created DudeRobe...but instead of taking over the field, his mission is to take over the locker room and make downtime better.


Our Traction



Passionate Customers - From Pro Athlete Dudes to Regular Dudes


Professional athletes happen to be some of our biggest fans — not an easy group to please. We’ve outfitted entire NBA teams (NY Knicks, Brooklyn Nets & Utah Jazz) and superstar athletes such as Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook, Boston Celtic guard Marcus Smart and the UFC’s Chris Weidman.

The biggest sports agents and agencies in the world continue to reach out to request DudeRobe gear for their clients.


We’ve surpassed all our funding goals to date and continue to collect amazing customer reviews from athletes and regular dudes alike. 



*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.






That’s right, we made a cooler robe for cooler dudes and the athletes and a ton of regular dudes have spoken.  We’ve been blown away by the emails and reviews from folks saying just how much they love their DudeRobe gear...how unbelievably passionate they are about it.

The product



We changed & “uncreeped” the robe...making something guys today actually want to wear



As a “non-Robe guy”, our founder wanted something that was comfortable but also looked cool.  He realized that men’s robes had barely changed in 200 years, so he decided to do something about it. He created something that he would wear, that’s more like a hoodie than a traditional robe. With DudeRobe’s proprietary dual fabric, that’s hoodie on the outside, but comfy and absorbent towel on the inside, he created a robe that guys today actually WANT to wear.

 

That meant…


No more losing your belt.  


No more floppy, wizard style sleeves.  


No more ankle length.  


No more creeping out your neighbors or the Fedex guy.  


Plus, we added an extra pocket inside.  And what dude doesn’t love an extra pocket?







Simply put, we make a robe that dudes love. Our robe, shorts, and sweats are all made from the same dual fabric: hoodie material on the outside, absorbent (and extra comfy) towel material on the inside. Hoodie-style sleeves and a permanently attached belt allow for a much more practical design, allowing the wearer to do a lot more in their robe than just sit in bed. 


Now you can take out the trash, walk the dog or answer the door without feeling like someone might just call the cops.


The Market


Huge Market + Fragmented Market Leaders = Big Opportunity


Loungewear and athleisure wear are both massive markets. The loungewear market alone is expected to hit $37.7 billion in 2021. And the athleisure market is projected to hit $517.5 billion by 2025. Meanwhile, everyday consumers have shown a greater demand for high quality and premium products when it comes to their athleisure wear, sleepwear and loungewear—and who can be surprised?


Source 1 Source 2


Because there seems to be a white space here, with no clear leader in the category, there is room for a brand like DudeRobe, with its unique brand voice and passionate fanbase, to carve out a sizable chunk of the market.  

And as we introduce our next generation of proprietary technical fabrics, that will literally help people relax better and recover to come back better tomorrow, we plan to be the definitive leader in the space.

The Vision



We’re ready to take over the locker room—and the bedroom and bathroom, too


We’re a fast-growing company in a fast-growing space. Last year we did over a million dollars in sales. This year we’re on pace to more than double that…

While I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve done, I’m even more excited with where we’re going.  

From Pro Athletes to Rockstar CEOs to Regular Dudes, it’s clear that Downtime and Recovery has never been more important...that is where we are planting  the DudeRobe flag.



We’ve already built a cooler robe, but we’re getting ready to launch new products with cutting-edge technical fabrics that have amazing benefits. Imagine an odor proof towel...or a Robe that has skin, temperature control and recovery benefits.  




DudeRobe for Her - Introducing the "Boyfriend Robe"

Driven by requests from women who are stealing their partners’ robes, DudeRobe has become  a unisex product. At a time when there’s so much going on with gender fluidity, it would be tone deaf of us not to recognize that women can rock a DudeRobe as much as any guy.

 

Version 2.0 - Technical Fabrics

We’ve sourced some incredible technical fabrics that have actual benefits. Imagine a Robe (and Slippers, Blankets & Towels)that offers skin benefits, recovery benefits, temperature control, are antimicrobial, anti-odor and are sustainable.

 

Custom DudeRobe Gear

Currently we only offer custom Robes to professional athletes and influencers. But we plan to roll out a custom program for individuals, teams, etc. In addition to becoming its own profit center, customization reduces return rates by 30% (customized products are always final sale) and it also helps to increase Average Order Value.

 

Collaborations & Licenses

Based on the incredible reception from professional athletes and teams, we are planning to launch collaborations to sell custom DudeRobe gear to their audiences. We plan to launch monthly collaborations with different athletes & influencers. This would not only become a new profit center, but  a great marketing vehicle to generate buzz around the brand. We are also exploring pro sports league licensing opportunities.





We may be a Robe company today...but we plan to be a health & wellness company tomorrow.



And of course we plan to continue to expand our existing relationships with pro athletes to become the go-to brand for both the folks watching (and working out) at home, as well as the superstar athletes they’re rooting for.

The Business model



Behind the Robe


We sell direct-to-consumer online, primarily through our website, with an average order value of $137.05 last year. Our robes retail for $99.95. As a relatively young company, we’re proud to say that we are already profitable, providing a strong foundation for our continued expansion.  As Direct-to-Consumer sales continue to flourish generally, we are poised to scale given our profitable and lean foundation.



OUR leadership


Sports Industry Expert + Product Developer


Howie Busch, Founder & Dude-in-Chief

A former sports agent, attorney, and product developer with a wealth of experience in consumer products and pro sports, DudeRobe’s success can be traced to the meshing of Howie’s unique experiences and skill set. As an inventor and product developer, he has designed innovative products, including pillows and blankets, that have been sold in Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Amazon, and airports around the world.  And he has spoken multiple times on the subject of product development at the US Patent & Trademark Office.  

On the sports end of the spectrum, Howie negotiated Under Armour’s first-ever sports licensing deal (with the NFL), in addition to several World Series of Poker contracts with ESPN on behalf of the production company that produced it for the network. He also helped NFL player Bill Goldberg break into and become one of the biggest names in pro wrestling. With DudeRobe, Howie has harnessed the power of his experience in both sports and product development to capture untapped demand and deliver value to consumers, pro athletes and shareholders alike.



Why invest



Welcome to YOUR ground floor opportunity...

We believe the timing could not be better, as people have never placed as much of a premium on exercise and recovery. Experts all agree that downtime and recovery is critical to being the best that you can be.  

As Americans come out on the other side of the pandemic, they’ve recognized that their comfort at home, as well as their physical and mental health, are non-negotiable priorities. With DudeRobe, we’re delivering on all fronts, with a debut product line that’s all about comfort plus cool that helps you relax in style.


By investing in DudeRobe, you’re helping us to expand our inventory, develop new products and formalize some high-level marketing and sponsorship deals to fuel our growth—but more than that, you’re contributing to a bigger movement that’s all about elevating and maximizing our downtime so we can rest up and recover to come back better to do something epic tomorrow. 


And since crowdfunding is in our DNA, it only made sense for us to turn to dudes like you and a platform like StartEngine for our capital raise... we’d love to have you on board as we take over the locker room together…one team, one athlete, one dude at a time.

Q4 Results Are In

9 months ago

I wanted to wish everyone a belated happy and healthy New Year...and to to take a quick look back at the end of 2021 with you.

 

While November & December 2020 had been our two best months ever…in those same months in 2021, sales jumped 91%!   DudeRobe is clearly a favorite gift for all the special dudes (or dudettes) in people's lives...and the reviews show just how much people loved receiving their DudeRobes.       


In other exciting news, we launched our our first ever pro sports partnership at the vey end of last year with our NBA line.  We plan to grow that relationship as well as announcing some other similar partnerships in the coming weeks and months.  

 


We’re also actively developing a variety of new products…some of which we’ve mentioned in previous updates & we can’t wait to share those with you as they get closer to hitting the market.   

 

2021 was a crazy year for everyone, with the pandemic still with us and resulting supply chain issues, but we still managed to have a great year business-wise...and we're even more excited for the year ahead.  

 

We’ll be back soon with some more announcements…but thought you should know how strongly we ended 2021.  And to thank you for riding shotgun with us on this incredible journey!    

 


Our Best Month Ever!

10 months ago

I'm excited to share that November was our best month ever!  


While November 2020 was a terrific month for us, this past month we surpassed last November by over 75%.  


We were able to sustain our growth, in large part, because we were on top of our supply chain.  Fortunately, we were able to maintain our stock and are poised for further growth through December and as we head into 2022.  


That just means more happy dudes Robing Up & getting their DudeRobe gear!   


We'll do our best to update you here, but head over to DudeRobe.com and sign up for our newsletter for some exciting news...like our upcoming NBA drop happening towards the end of the month.    


Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving and were able to spend some quality time with family.

Sad News To Share

10 months ago

I've got some sad news to share on a personal level.  


A very important dude in my life passed away last week.  My dad.  He had just turned 85 the week before.  


Of course it was a tough week for me and the family...but that's not why I wanted to share it with you guys.  


My dad was a great dude...but at the end of the day, he was never a very happy guy.  As a kid, I only remember seeing him laugh (really laugh) one time...during an episode of All in the Family.  His friends were his and my mom's couple friends, so he never did anything with "the guys."  


Truth be told, throughout my life my dad was a bit of a hater...before being a hater was a thing.  I noticed it early on...and made a concerted effort not to follow in his footsteps in that regard.  


I promise I'm not sharing this to trash my dad.  I'm not trying to dishonor his memory.  In fact, my goal is to do just the opposite...and here's why.  


A little before he turned 80, I was out to breakfast with him and my mom. My mom was complaining about this and that, when I turned to my dad and asked, "how about you...what do you want to complain about?"  


His response stopped me in my tracks.  "Nothing," he said.  "I'm happier than I've ever been.  I've got my buddies.  I'm playing golf 4-5 times a week, I'm going to the fitness center 4-5 times a week...I'm captain of our bocce team."  


Even though I knew most of it, to hear him actually be happy about it and appreciate it...that was new. And over the next 5 years, he was just a happier person.  He seemed to really enjoy life and was much more enjoyable to be around.  


My wife noticed it, my kids noticed it...my brother his family noticed it. It was that stark a contrast.  


And that's what I wanted to share with you guys...celebrate others' success, see the good in people.  And no matter how old you are, you can always change.  


While I'm sad my dad's gone and I'm sad that he only got to truly enjoy his last 5 years...I'm so happy for him that he actually got those 5 years of happiness.  Towards the end,  he said, "You had it right. I used to resent how happy and carefree you were...but you had it right."       


And that, my friends, is what I wanted to share with you.  From one dude looking back at his life at the very end...lighten up, have fun and enjoy the journey.  Now that's a legacy to be proud of.  


Thanks Pops...rest in peace buddy,

11 months ago

Hey gang, first & foremost, I wanted to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!  


I wanted to share our biggest sale of the year with you guys.  Just use code 25OFF at checkout for the 25% off...not that creative I realize, but hey, it's still 25% off.  :-)


Looking for a great gift for one or more special dudes in your life...DudeRobe is one of those gifts that they just seem to love.  Check out some of the pics from last Christmas...and some of the reviews.  Nothing makes me happier than reading reviews that share how much people love their DudeRobe gear.  


The Reviews are in...


"My three boys (actually young men) loved getting their dude robes for Christmas this year. The color and material is perfect."

"Just wanted to let you know that so far one grandson who is 14 opened his present and said his robe was the best gift this year! I'm sure our 21 year old grandson will like his when he opens it tomorrow also. Merry Christmas and thanks for helping make this Grandma score some major points!"

" My three boys (actually young men) loved getting their dude robes for Christmas this year. The color and material is perfect."


"I sent a dude robe to my son for Christmas. His wife claimed it! You need a ladies version"


"I bought this for my husband this holiday season and he loves it! There is only one problem, so do I! Fantastic weight, quality and fit. I encourage everyone to upgrade their 1900's robe to the next evolution of loungewear. This feels wonderful, like a luxurious hotel robe every single day, but even better! And...the company, exceptional customer service. Thanks Howie!"


"Gave these as a Christmas gift and they were a hit! Super comfortable, well constructed, warm but you don’t get super hot and they look really good. He like them so much he won’t take them off. Highly recommend."


"My wife gave my three sons and me Dude Robes on Christmas eve. I'm not going to call anyone out, but the robes have been to the hardware store, grocery shopping, and to the donut shop. They are comfortable and stylish. I love the fact that we won't have to go looking for misplaced robe belts, and the hood is an excellent feature on chilly mornings."


Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving...enjoy the time with your families!  Any thoughts or questions, please don't hesitate to drop a comment/question below or feel free to reach out to me personally. 


Enjoy!

Limited Edition NBA DudeRobes - Help Us Pick The Style

11 months ago

As part of the DudeRobe family, your opinion matters.  We're just about to manufacture the Limited Edition NBA line we're dropping in December & I'd love to get your thoughts on the look & style asap…


We’re choosing between a graffiti/paint splattered logo on the back of the robe...with the plain logo on the front left chest (see below).  To see the other teams & options with that same style, just click here



The other option (below) is using regular, unaltered logos on both the front and back…to see the other teams & options with that style, just click here.  


So here's the big question.  In a drop format, which one of these styles do you think would sell better?  


Your opinion really does matter to me, so please just share your thoughts in the "Comments" section below.

Supply Chain Update, DudeRobe Style

11 months ago

Hey guys, just a quick note to let you know what's going on with the supply chain on our end.  


First, no need to worry...we're all good!  We built some redundancy into our supply chain (just in case) by opening up a second factory and we were just informed that the first order from that factory is now locked and loaded and on its way to us...and should be with us just in time for Black Friday/Cyber Monday.    


While it may be arriving a couple of months later than anticipated, we're really thankful to not be as adversely impacted as most of the manufacturing world (you're probably seeing it on your local store shelves).  


Fortunately, we built in this redundancy we ordered early enough that we should be in a really good inventory position as we head into holiday and first quarter, including Valentine's Day (obviously an important time for us as a heavily gifted item).    


With supply chain top of mind for everyone this holiday season, I just wanted to ease your concerns and let you know that we're on top of it and in great shape!    


As an investor & partner, you deserve to know these things...and if you haven't finished your investment yet, go for it, there's no time like today.  


As always, any questions, just let me know.  Stay awesome guys!

We've got some great momentum, so feel free to share the opportunity with friends & family that might be interested in getting in on the ground floor just like you...the more the merrier.

BIG NEWS - DudeRobe Gets License to Sell NBA Team Robes & Crosses $150K in Investment!

12 months ago

You are the first to know...

I'm so excited to share that DudeRobe has secured its first ever licensing deal.  Thanks to a deal with NBALAB, we'll be releasing Limited Edition DudeRobes for the top 7 selling NBA teams in the coming months.  

These will be done in a "drop" format on a date & time to be determined and we expect to sell out fast...so if you're a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, Golden State Warriors or world champion Milwaukee Bucks, be ready to act fast.  If you're an investor, just let us know and we'll be sure to reserve one for you!  

While robes may generally not be cool enough for a drop, DudeRobes are.  We've been fortunate to have some NBA teams order for their locker rooms and the biggest agents in sports reach out for DudeRobes for their clients...so I fully expect fans to go crazy over the team licensed DudeRobes.  

Below is a sneak peek of what the factory sent over yesterday.  As a lifelong basketball fan, this one has me really excited!  


 

I also wanted to share that we've already raised more than $150K from 160 Investors so we're well on our way to reaching our $1 million funding goal.  I'm truly grateful for having a great product, growing fan base, and investors like you.  And I'd love your help because the sooner we hit our goal, the sooner we can deploy that capital to fuel our anticipated, continued growth.  

So if you have friends, family members or business associates that may be interested in getting in on the ground floor too, we'd love to have them, so please forward the link below.
