A 14 year old boy who got diagnosed with Alopecia travelled to Turkey with his mother to meet a professor to potentially cure the disease. Sadly no cure was found, but the young boy found something much greater than a cure to his disease… he found a purpose.
The first time Alper Hafif layed eyes on Victoria’s Secret was in Turkey. An amazing feeling went through him when he walked into the store and then it hit him, why doesn’t a store like this exist for men? This was the beginning of an amazing journey which almost 9 years later led to Vin’s Answer – The male underwear equivalent.
The name is Everything: Alper had made a list of over 50 different names when he was in college, Vin’s Answer not being one of them. One night when he was reflecting over what the Secret stood for he caught his parents having an argument. He listened to it and realized that his father didn’t get what his mom was trying to say, and he was making points that had nothing to do with what she was trying to tell him.
Looking for names that are “manly”, Alper found the name Vincent, which means the conqueror. It sounded good, but merging it together with Answer didn’t make a good name: Vincent’s Answer.
One night when he was watching an action movie with Vin Diesel in the leading role Alper got curious and looked up what Vin’s name really was, Vincent. He immediately tried Vin’s Answer. It had a nice tone, was easy to remember and was exactly what he wanted. He wrote it on a piece of paper and asked his mother who doesn’t speak english to say what was written, she pronounced it good enough! The name was perfect!
A few days later his friend had a similar argument with her boyfriend, at that moment it hit him! Women are a secret to men, the statement “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” was true. Still, all men are trying to make a point and give an answer every time. Answer it was! Now he just needed a name to complete the idea.
To sell the vision wasn’t the hard part, the hard part was to find a product that could reflect the vision. Alper Hafif got that product ready in 2017. He sold a total of 700 pairs of underwear before the production had started through Kickstarter.
A few months later the model and sales representative Martin Waesterberg and the marketers Jacob Olausson and Bejamin Egbudiwe joined the VA team and is now on board to make a change!
