I started www.mrlapel.co.uk as a way to be able to make a little extra money to be able to afford to buy an engagement ring for my now fiancé, 2 years later I have managed to have grown an online business for men's accessories. From starting with just a range of 5 lapel pins and now having a full range of men's accessories, from ties, pocket squares, sock, sunglasses etc.
I am using crown funding to be able to leave my job and make this into my full time living.
Over the past 2 years I have made mistakes and learnt what works best for the brand. Now with this money I will use this for advertising and brand awareness, and for growth.
We have sold to over 42 countries and have a large following on Instagram, Facebook and twitter, Instagram being the largest with currently 42.8k followers. Follow us on @mrlapeluk to view our social media pages.
Thank you for your time,
