Update on New Inventory
I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying a relaxing holiday weekend!
Yesterday, I received an update on our new goods, now targeted to arrive at our warehouse a bit later than expected. Cartons containing our classic fit Sharkskin and Gabardine Poly Twill w/Stretch reached the Port of New York on July 1st and are expected to arrive in Boston on July 14th. Currently, our shipment is under customs clearance, so the July 14th date is our broker's best estimate. Upon arrival, the goods will be placed in stock and on the website, and an email will go out to everyone. I will post updates as soon as I learn more.
Meanwhile, as many of you know, our factories were not able to produce goods due to the pandemic from March 2020 to January 2021 when they reopened. This is our first shipment in a long time, and like many businesses, our business has taken a big hit. In the next few weeks you will see a small price increase in our slacks, the first since 2013, which will hopefully allow us to continue to produce this wonderful, iconic brand for years to come. We hope you can appreciate that this is not our first choice, and we are grateful for your loyalty.
Regarding the new goods, if you'd like me to reach out to you by phone when they are on our website and ready to order, I'd be happy to do so. Please shoot me an email and I will add your name and number to my list.
Otherwise, kindly stay tuned for email updates which I will share as soon as I get them.
Kathy, I saw that there was a date you were raising prices soon & the amount. Unfortunately my mind is not the " steel trap" it use to be. Can you advise me of the date and amount if that's available. Thanks
Hi Mr. Madon, Prices for slacks are set to go up $3 on February 1st. Alterations will be $11.50 for belt loops or for hemming but of course, this service remains optional. Kindest Regards, Kathy
