Pre-Order: The Lab Coat Project

womens white cotton lab coat project


I think we can create the best lab coat in the world, together.

Why should we accept ill-fitting, boring, non-functional and potentially unsafe lab coats as the norm when we're spending a large fraction of our lives in them doing invaluable research for the world?

The Lab Coat Project used a data-driven approach, crowdsourced from over 1500 STEM researchers like YOU, to design an exceptional scientist lab coat at an affordable price that you can look and feel great in.

How does the pre-order work?

Why we need this - from the founder

Follow our progress toward the goal!

What happens after my order?

When we hit our goal of 300 lab coats of either the men's or women's styles, that style will begin production. From that date, it will be about 5 months until your lab coat is delivered.

If we can't pre-sell 300 lab coats of either gender, we won't have the funds to start manufacturing. In that event, every order will be canceled and fully refunded.

You can cancel or modify your order at any time before your lab coat is shipped. However, a large number of cancellations after production is started will put us into a lot of financial debt. Please only pre-order if you fully intend on buying this lab coat. That being said, unexpected changes happen. Read our detailed pre-order policy page here.
