Longtime buddies Jake Kehlenbeck, Alex Alfaro and John Grellner started making Bucket Tees because they wanted to "make pockets great again."

They were surprised when they researched big-pocket tees and there were none on the market. So they made a few prototypes, wore them in public, and they were a huge hit. has only been up for a little over a year and already they've sold 1,000 t-shirts.

All this after Jake and Alex decided to quit their day jobs to focus on making the brand a "great customer experience" as well as improve the quality of the shirts.

Surprisingly, we get a lot of interest from women. Even though they have guy sizes and cuts, the girls still buy them.

The guys say they've yet to put a dollar into marketing and still run the company out of Alex's spare bedroom. Social media shares and word-of-mouth is what drives sales as of right now.

So far they only make men's shirts, but they are planning on launching their women's line very soon.
