On Shark Tank, “SWOVERALLS” World’s Comfiest Apparel

“SWOVERALLS” THE COMFIEST THING YOU NEVER KNEW YOU NEEDED

Athletic Entrepreneur’s Sweatpant Overalls Prove Sharks Wrong with a 1,500% Sales Spike — Designed for All, in Time for Summer

Kyle Bergman, Founder & Chief Swoverall Officer of The Great Fantastic, the brand that created “Swoveralls,” and a member of the Israel Men’s National Lacrosse team, competed on Season 10 of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” Sunday, April 21st at 10 p.m. EDT.  Designed for all, Swoveralls are cool, functional, and extremely comfortable.

“Our mission is to create the world’s comfiest apparel using sustainable resources and ethical manufacturing processes,” said Bergman. “As an athlete, I recognize comfort is a universal concept that everyone understands and experiences, and Swoveralls make that concept accessible, inclusive, and fun.”

Reasonably priced, for a product locally made with organic fabric, at $95, people can also purchase with AfterPay in four installments of $23.75. Neither masculine nor feminine, Swoveralls are available at The Phluid Project, the world’s first gender-free store. 

Since the show, at the time of this release, The Great Fantastic has now sold over $320,000 in Swoveralls, with more than 3,000 happy and comfy customers!

The Great Fantastic – Company Timeline:

•Launched a successful crowdfunding campaign in June 2018, raising $108,000

•Sold $320,000 in Swoveralls, with more than 3,000 comfy, lifetime customers

Show Highlights:

“My god,” said Barbara Corcoran. “Overalls are so popular!”

Daymond John stressed the importance of having “one thing” as a key product to drive the business forward. “You have one thing…the Swoveralls!” responded Lori Greiner.

While the Sharks showed great enthusiasm for Swoveralls, Bergman and The Great Fantastic did not come to terms that night. “Since the show, we have had a 1,500% sales spike in Swoveralls, and are only taking preorders now as we rush to restock inventory — it’s clear there continues to be demand for our product,” said Bergman. “We’re just taking off, and I can’t wait to see where we go. I would have loved to have partnered with one of the Sharks, specifically Lori, Daymond, or Mark,  but they’re just going to have to watch from the sidelines.”

“Initially, I was trying to solve a problem for myself.

The Great Fantastic is an adventure and experience I’ve created for myself, and anyone who wants to join me, as all are invited to the party!” – Kyle Bergman, Founder & Chief Swoverall Officer
