Test an Oliver Charles sweater, give feedback, and it's free.
Celebrate The Freeing #Repeat Movement
The idea that when we find outfits we love, we wear them over and over again isn’t a revelation. In fact, there’s a term for it called your “personal uniform”, which has been reported on by publications such as Vox, The Wall Street Journal, and CNBC.
Let's celebrate the shift away from environmentally unsustainable fast fashion and towards #repeat styles.
If selected to be a Field Tester, we'll invite you to take the Summer Sweater Challenge:
Invite a sense of adventure and curiosity and anything-can-happen-ness. Plan an itinerary or take a mental note of where you'd like to go. Then, when you're ready to start, wear your sweater while completing 5 of the adventures below:
Eat at your favorite restaurant or a new place you've wanted to try.
Visit a craft fair, farmers market, or a local small business.
Read a book at a park, beach, or spot in nature you're happiest.
Explore a neighborhood or place you love but don't get to enough.
Volunteer at a garden, food bank, or wherever you can give back.
Climb to the best view around for sunset. Stick around to stargaze.
See a concert, comedy show, play, or go to the theater for a movie.
Thrift shop and find an accessory you'll wear with your sweater.
Create something from scratch or take a class and learn to craft.
Work from an office, cafe, or out-of-the-ordinary place for the day.
After signing up, we'll send you an application. It's pretty quick - we want to know what sweater you're most interested in testing. We also want to know why you're interested in becoming a field tester.
It depends on the application, but in general, we're looking for people who share a belief in our mission, want to help us make the best go-to sweaters possible, and want to help educate our community about the sweaters/share what we're working on.
We review applications every day, and we'll follow up with you in about a week. We accept 2 people each month to field test our sweaters. We'll always keep you updated on who is taking the challenge and the feedback we receive.
We have a limited number of sweaters to test each month, so current customers are not eligible for the field tester program. If you're a current customer, you can still take the 1-Week Challenge or Summer Sweater Challenge and earn a separate, exclusive reward. If you haven't received the invite, email us at email@example.com, and we'll get you started asap.
We accept 2 field testers out of around 200 applicants every month. Ordering an All-Season Sweater is still the only way to guarantee yourself a spot in the 1-Week Challenge.
We also have the Summer Sweater Challenge. Similarly, ordering a Summer Sweater is still the only way to guarantee yourself a spot in this Challenge. If you complete either challenge, we'll send you a 20% discount on a second sweater.
You can take a challenge 1 time per sweater. However, we hope you'll continue challenging your wardrobe and testing our sweaters for years to come.
