Hi, I’m Nick and I’m a proud Rotarian.

I’m proud of what my club (Poulsbo), my district (5020), my country (USA), and my organization (Rotary) has accomplished and I want everyone to know about it. I want to tell them about the scholarships we’ve given out, the housing for domestic violence survivors we’ve built, the polio virus we’ve almost eradicated… and so much more. I want people to ask me about Rotary. 

But here’s the problem: When someone looks at me, they don’t know I’m a Rotarian.

Why? Because I don’t like Rotary’s clothing. It’s as simple as that.

Now don’t mistake me, there is nothing wrong with the traditional Rotary clothing you can get on Russel Hampton and other suppliers. It has a very nice “business professional” vibe which appeals to many people… just not me. 

I prefer t-shirts. Bright colors. Bold prints. Big words… and I think other Rotarians do too.

That’s why I created 1905 Gear. I wanted high-quality, stylish, and affordable Rotary gear that appealed to me. Something different than the traditional Rotary clothing options that are currently on the market.

The best part? 100% of the profits from 1905 Gear go back into Rotary programs.

You see, 1905 Gear is volunteer run by myself and a few other Rotarians and every penny we make is donated back to our club’s foundation.

So if you’re like me, a proud Rotarian with nothing to wear, buy a shirt (or two). And while you’re at it, tell some fellow Rotarians about it.

Thanks and enjoy your gear,

Nick Johnson
Rotarian, Poulsbo Rotary Club
