Looking back to our last email on March 9th, the world was a very different place. Like you, we were gearing up for Spring Break, dreaming about drinks by the pool, sun and fun on the beach. Just a few days later the state of Illinois, and other parts of the country would go on lock down and all plans were put on hold. Now, we are hunkered down and making a list of the vacations we will take, the dinners we will have and all the people we will see once everything gets back to normal...and it will.
On the business front, we have learned a ton about inventory management these last few weeks. Once again we quickly sold out of our Deckhand Hoodies in L, XL and XXL. We just didn't make enough in these sizes and won't make that mistake again. Sorry about that. All the folks on the wait list will get notified the moment we are back in stock.
Our factory in Chicago remains closed and it will probably be at least until May until things are running again. First up is our "Naked" Deckhand hoodie which is the same awesome material as our Deckhand hoodies without the Dress Shirt hood liner. We think its the best lightweight hoodie on the market...at least the most comfortable!
Thanks for taking this journey with us. Please stay careful, and stay safe. We will see you on the other side.
