    If anyone’s interested in a gently worn small Sherpa vest, send me a PM.

    Looking forward to drop 3!

    @NickPollica are any of the vests for which we’ve seen previews padded? Which drop? They all look good but I might prefer to wait for a padded one if that’s in the works.

    The non-fleece ones are coming in the spring and have a very light poly fill.

    For those on the hunt, one ecru fleece vest in S just came back and there's a single XL of the jungle jacket there too.

    Similar to those belted cardigans from Eidos, but in a lighter weight fabric.

    I want an discharge printed passport made with upcycled Nepalese stationary.

    Also, did anyone size up on the birth certificate or go TTS??

    is it more important for small / new brands to sell out their inventory or expand their brand presence? is it different when you have the backing of a larger following / have some strong networks already?

    Speaking from very real previous experience, nothing kills a brand like over-distribution. Inevitably, the excess stock has to go on sale and potential customers are conditioned to wait until markdown because they know it will be there. Most retailers evaluate the brands they carry based on full price sell-through so buys get smaller each season.

    It's always better to start slow, steady and small.
