I can't tell if you're serious or kidding around.

^ why? 

 

example. Minimal and clean

 

Edit : Most people might have too many navy and grey outerwears already. Something in camel would be nice imo.

Me too dude, I have such a boner for this...
that's why I asked about the wallet menu. God it's sexy.

Edit: it would be great in black, too. The coin pocket in any wallet is pretty non-functional for me...cards and notes only.

At the risk of upsetting the status quo here, some of these recent posts are silly. You're all clamoring over fundraiser wallets and backpacks while people who placed and paid for orders over 8 months ago (nearly twice the originally suggested lead time) still haven't received their jackets.

 

How about instead of encouraging your previous patrons to support a new venture, you fulfill obligations to the outstanding customers in a timely manner?

 

Defend the deal, quality, and small staff size all you want. But ultimately, those are supply side concerns. People paid money upfront for a product they haven't received within the lead time stated at the time of their order. Any potential bargain is mitigated by waiting twice as long for a something. If you can't handle demand, stop taking orders or higher more staff.

 

I kinda feel like a sucker.

Not to defend the wait times or anything, but I'm pretty sure it has been mentioned many times that there are particular people that make the jackets. From my understanding, these people aren't going to drop everything they're doing to make wallets now. I'm sure they're working as fast as they can to continue creating jackets without sacrificing quality.

If you don't like it don't buy it. There are a lot of people here who feel that it's worth the price + wait time. It's a small operation putting out a great product, I'm sure if they wanted to make this company / brand a lot bigger and hire 20 more people they could, but you have to respect the fact that they might want to do something else with their lives (like open a restaurant for example). There's also been no indication that this fundraising (or whatever you want to call it) is going to slow down jacket production at all, you can't just assume that- because you don't know any more than I do about it. They've also been very upfront about everything, it's not like they're trying to scam suckers into giving them money via shady dealings- what you see is what you get

I already bought it. That's the point.

 

I never assumed that whatever fundraiser they're doing is slowing down production; I just think it's gauche to offer a new product when people are still waiting for something they ordered 35 weeks ago.

Reading comprehension

I just want to go one week without some random dude complaining about wait times :/

I've got two jackets and would get a third if I had the spare loot, even given the wait times. The jackets are classic lasting pieces, not just instant gratification shopping. I'm sorry mcsmif feels that way, hope you're more than pleased with the product.
post #38744 of 45037

I'm sure I will be.

 

But I don't think it's unfair to feel a bit scorned paying for a product up front, for a proposed lead time, and then waiting twice as long. 

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure we're breaking records on lead times at this point. This wouldn't and shouldn't be acceptable in any other business model, I'm just really astonished that everyone here is so cool with it. Offering a whole new product as a fundraiser (whether it affects lead times or not) is a bit of a middle finger as far as I'm concerned. Sorry if you disagree.

It is what it is, and that sucks, but please we're all sick of hearing about it.

edit: whoops didnt mean to thumb, fat fingers
