The Dream
Mandel wanted a jacket that represented the true spirit of Omega Psi Phi. What better way than to get full portraits of the founders embroidered on the back of his varsity jacket! We asked Mandel how he came up with the idea. he says:

"One of my frat brothers came to my home recently (it was the first time we met). In the spirit of brotherhood, I opened a box filled with frat shirts and told him he could have ANYTHING IN THE BOX HE WANTED! He was overwhelmed by the generous offer, then told me that he had been inactive for some time. Our meeting inspired him and when he returned to Savannah, GA, he became an active member of his local chapter.

This made me think about my fraternity and, moreover, the Founders and their original intent. The way my brother and I fellowshipped was in the true and pure spirit of Omega. I wanted to commemorate that spirit with a "Founder's Jacket". I’ve always loved to wear original garments, and thought long and hard about what type of elements such a jacket would include. After some careful consideration, I came up with the design."

How do I get my jacket featured?
Just place an order. No other action is required on your part. Each month, we will select one order that we think is the most original and creative concept to date. We will notify you by email if your design is selected.


The Design
Mandel was initially hesitant about ordering online. We asked Mandel why he chose Stuff4Greeks and he said:

"... the vendor I had been using for about 10 years lost their sense of customer service. They treated my request like they were doing ME a favor. I was insulted by their treatment and lack of appreciation for my business; and vowed NEVER to patronize them again!

... The highly customized garments I order require strict attention to detail. I like being able to see and touch the garment before finally adding it to my wardrobe (Several orders from that OTHER vendor had to be sent back because my exact specifications weren't adhered to.) I decided to go with Stuff4Greeks after having a phone conversation with NICOLE. She was pleasant, patient and knowledgeable. We had several phone chats, faxes, and emails before my order was finalized; which I needed to make me comfortable with my purchase. The jacket arrived on-time and as advertised!"

Our expert design team digitized the photo of the founders that Mandel sent us. As you can see, we were able to acheive great detail - from the wrinkles in the skin to the frames of the glasses. Then we emailed Mandel a full-color rendition of the jacket for his approval.

Note: The digitizing process takes skill and time; it is not as easy as just pressing a button. We configured every inch of the founders' faces in our computers so that the embroidery team could sew them out with perfection.

The Delivery
Mandel's varsity jacket is absolutely breathtaking!

Mandel says: "We've been having a bit of a heatwave here in NYC, so I haven't had a chance to wear it. But I did show the jacket to my assistant and one of my sorors. BOTH OF THEM FLIPPED OUT!!! "How did you get that picture on your jacket?" "Is that the fraternity motto in the original Greek?" "How did you come up with that quote on the sleeve?" The reaction was EXACTLY what I was hoping for! I plan to get this "Founder's" design on other garments. I'm going to present one these Founder's item to my neophyte as a gift on his crossing anniversary, and send one to my brother in Savannah. I can't wait to wear my new Founder's Jacket to a frat meeting!

Thanx Nicole!! And thank you Stuff4Greeks for making the jacket of my dreams!"
