The Launch Of Our New Business - The Rear Gunner Clothing Company

What’s that off in the horizon? Is it a bird? Is it plane? Nope. It’s our new business The Rear Gunner Clothing Company which started July 1st (Canada Day)!! Our squad consists of General Tim, myself Lieutenant Joelle, and Sargent James.

Now for the history of why we decided to start our company. Tim (my husband) loved BMW’s. He loved them so much in fact, that he got a friend to custom make a leather and wool varsity jacket with a wicked BMW Motorsport Logo embroidered on the back. Unfortunately his older brother borrowed said jacket without asking and lost it. So many years later Tim decided he would like another jacket and set to work designing one. As he toiled away he thought it would be great for our toddler James to have a cool jacket too. But for James he wanted to create an aviator style jacket. After much research, Tim realized that a leather aviator jacket with custom artwork on the back would set him back $1000 to $2000 US! So he came up with the idea to take a varsity jacket like his BMW one, and get it embroidered on the back with nose-art from WWII. Taking his love for WWII nose art, Tim designed a jacket for James called Swappy’s Sting (“Swappy” is our son’s nickname). He even put a “J” for James on the sleeve as well as James’ birth date. Pleased with his work he got a sample made of the Swappy’s Sting jacket. When it arrived and Tim tried it on, he thought that everyone should be allowed to own a wicked cool jacket with WWII nose art on the back. So now anyone can have a aviator type jacket with cool nose-art on the back for $150 Canadian which is way more affordable.

Our first trade show was at Etsy Made In Canada here in Edmonton. Even Cherry Bomb made an appearance!

Here’s a couple of the designs of the Men’s Varsity Jackets we carry:

The redhead on the bomb is supposed to be yours truly. And my birth date and initial is on this jacket as well.

Being added to our website soon are Toddler and Youth Varsity Bomber Jackets as well. We also carry Men’s, Youth, and Toddler T-shirts. Here are some of our creations:

At last but certainly not least here are a couple of our Adult Baseball Caps:

According to Tim, this cap was also inspired by me and displays my birth date and initial. :-O

We truly enjoy working together on designing – after James goes to bed of course! We hope you find something for you or for a unique gift for someone on your Christmas list. And all you gals out there are not left out! A small or medium men’s varsity jacket might fit you just right. Same with our men’s t-shirts. And our baseball caps? I have a small head and I can fit our caps just fine. Because we also carry toddler and kid sizes in some of our t-shirts and jackets, both you and your mini can be twins when you head out on the town.

These two are definitely winning at twinning!
