Since the relaunch in September, we've been looking forward to this moment.
So much has to happen for one delivery to get out smoothly and successfully. In the interim, there are many other goings-on in the business day to day that make it interesting, dynamic and challenging each day.
With the first delivery since the relaunch in September heading out the door, there were some expected unexpected hold ups, and some unexpected unexpected hold ups that teach us how much we need to anticipate last minute adjustments. We've learned to react quickly and make the proper changes so that the pieces arrive in your hands at the top of of our high standards.
To all of you who placed orders, we are so proud to be represented by you when you are out on the streets in your Starkweather gear. And we hope you'll come back for more, many times over!
We also appreciate your patience in the advance sale system, and hope that you'll find every time you wear your coat or liner or Crux that it was worth the wait.
