This garment was just a techie upgrade of the fisherman’s vest, which is a classic. The company faced a lawsuit threat from the technology company, International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) in 2002 because of the similarity of the lower case ‘e’ in both of their names and was forced to reduce the similarity.
The headquarters were moved from Chicago to Ketchum, Idaho, which is the current headquarter. The company again faced a lawsuit from an Idaho Company, Scott USA, in 2004 because of using the company’s trademark word “Scott.” The case was solved when the company joined the words “Scott” and “eVest” into “SCOTTeVest,” which is it’s the current name.

Jordan went to Shark Tank to represent his business on 2nd March 2012, where he didn’t receive any offers, which were less than $1 million.

The company faced difficulties when Jordan posted in his social media that the viewers of Fox News are gullible and idiots, and that’s the reason why the company advertised on Fox News. These stirred up controversies, and Jordan was forced to delete the post and issue an apology.
