We know you released mini sketch books a while back but When did you first think to take Ugmonk further than just shirt’s and goodies ?

I have always thought of Ugmonk as a more of mindset or lifestyle rather than just another t-shirt brand. Early on I knew I wanted to eventually expand beyond just doing t-shirts and carry the Ugmonk design mentality onto other items. Sketchbooks were a natural progression as many of my customers and fans are designers and artists.

Going from mini sketch books to a full leather journals is a big step , how hard was it to make get the final product as we see it on your page ?

Finding the right sources to make quality goods takes a lot of time and searching. There’s no easy way to skip this step, just takes time and effort to get everything nailed down. I’m a very detail-oriented person, so honing all of the details can be a long process.

This is really a big step in defining your brand from most other clothing company’s around , can you give us a hint on whats in store for UGMONK moving forward in this direction ?

Can’t give away all my secrets 🙂 Let’s just say, I plan to continue expanding the Ugmonk range even further, so be on the lookout for other new exciting products in the future.

Are other leather related products in store for UGMONK in the future ?? Chaps
perhaps ?

Haha, not chaps but hopefully some other leather products in the future if everything works out.

And last of all to break up the mediocrity of the same old boring interview questions if you could have any super power what would it be?

Good question. Flying would be cool, but I’d have to say the ability to slow down time would be pretty helpful. Then I could get so much more done in a day 🙂

Thanks for the interview. If you want to learn more about my story, you can read here:
