Frequently Asked Questions


What is The Vice?

The Vice is our crowd funding platform for new products ideas.

How does it work?

Every month we release a new product ideas to The Vice. For a two month period these products are available to pre-order at a discounted price. By purchasing these products before they enter production, you help ensure that they reach the production process. Products that reach their funding goal are manufactured and then delivered. At the close of each campaign, customers will be notified then their product will be shipped. Or, if the product doesn’t reach it’s funding goal, we will issue you a full refund.

Why crowd funding?

By participating in The Vice, you get to bring Hook and Vice products to reality. You also get pre-sale discounts that average more than 25%. Discount aside, for us the most important thing was to make sure that we were only producing what people really want. By having our customers participate we know ahead of time what products are sought after and what products fall short.

How long is the funding period?

Each product has it’s own timeline for funding depending on the specific product.

How long does it take to deliver products?

With every product in The Vice section of our site we include an estimated shipping date. Generally it can range from 1 week up to 12 weeks depending on the specific product. If ever there are difficulties in manufacturing we’ll be in touch as soon as possible to update you if the project changes. If ever a product doesn’t ship you will be refunded 100% of your payment.

When am I actually billed?

We’ll charge your card upon checkout.

What happens if a product doesn’t reach its goal?

In the event a The Vice product does not reach its funding goal, we’ll be in touch to let you know if we decide to make the product anyway, or we will provide you with a full refund.

Will the product be available for sale at after the closing date?

Perhaps. If it is you will have to pay full price, and it may be sold out by the time goes to production.


Our caps are one rise fits most. Our shirts are standard sizing, and they may shrink a size when put in the dryer. If it fits perfect when you get it don’t put it in the dryer. If it fits a little large put it in the dryer and it will shrink a little.

Did you know? 60% of greenhouse gasses generated over the lifetime of a garment come from typical machine washing and drying. You can easily cut this down by trying a green tip we at Hook and Vice encourage: wash your clothes in cold water and hang to dry. Also, try a phosphate free or planet friendly detergent!
