You could look at it that way, or you could think: how fucking amazing that a train derailment delays things by a single day! What a time to be alive.
I thought about it, then a subsequent thought that "single day" is possibly a default value in their automated notification system, and now I am ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Believe it or not, train derailments happen very often in the US. 1,200-1,500 per year. That’s 3 or 4 every day. Fatalities are rare, thankfully.

America's economy runs on freight trains from coal to intermodal trains bridging costs before passing on containers to trucks. It's a lot of trains and a lot of volume running on it.

Can I get an interest check here on doing preorders with James Grose? It's pretty time intensive for us to prepare preorder materials and create items online etc... but we may just be able to take preorders on a less formal fashion (email/deposit) if there are a few interested parties.

We'll probably restock the Lunch Jacket and RAF Irvin in the same configurations as before (only difference is they now sell the RAF Irvin in chest sizes instead of S, M, L, XL)

But we can also take orders for the same styles in different colors:

Lunch Jacket can come in:
  • Nappa Finish Dark Brown
  • Nappa Finish Black
  • Suede Finish Gold (what we order)
  • Suede Finish Dark Brown
  • Suede Finish Black
RAF Irvin can come in:
  • Nappa Finish Dark Brown (what we order)
  • Nappa Finish Black
  • Suede Finish Gold
  • Suede Finish Dark Brown
  • Suede Finish Black


But we can also take preorders for styles we won't be stocking, like

Shearling DB jacket (we had the black on black one in stock a couple years ago) and comes in the same 5 options - fits slimmer than Lunch or RAF

Or the Bench coat - which only comes in the three suede finish options

Haven't done the pricing fully just yet (especially with the extra Trump tax on UK goods 😡) but in terms of costs RAF > DB > Bench > Lunch

this is new and very very concerning (and not just from the perspective of delay)

I got an exception notification yesterday for my NMWA delivery but mine was due to a winter storm. In the end, my package is still out for delivery today, which is the day it was originally scheduled so no change in mine.

I think a train derailment is infinitely cooler than a winter storm, though a winter storm is probably colder.

Love the shape and crazy roomy comfort of Monitaly’s riding pants
