Steve Hauschka & family model new local accessories line

Cooper Helfet isn't the only model on the team!

Seahawks kicker Steve Hauschka, his wife Lindsey and Aussiedoodle Bee acted as the first models for Seattle fashion startup Jack Iron, a line of nautically inspired accessories.

The goal of the line? "We wanted to make a belt that was both new and exciting, and one that you could wear every day for years," says co-founders Chris Schmidt and DaveBruenner on their Kickstarter page. The line is inspired by the sailing culture in Seattle and Boston, their respective cities.

And they're not the only ones! As of Tuesday night (March 1), they had reached $16,675 of their $20,000 goal.
