So you’ve seen little updates from us lately and may be wondering, what the hell? The truth is, there’s been a lot going on behind the scenes the past few months, so allow me to go into a little detail.
First, on a personal level, I found out a couple months ago that I’m going to be a DAD!!!
It’s pretty crazy to think that I’ll have another life on my hands, but I’m VERY EXCITED nonetheless to embark on this journey with the love of my life! As to be expected, there’s A LOT to plan & many things to consider when bringing up a child so as you can imagine, I’ve been a little busy in that realm.
It also didn’t help that my laptop got rained on & ruined so that also set me back, but I’m stoked to now be on TEAM MAC!
Besides all of this, I’ve been working a lot more, trying to enjoy my surroundings (maybe a little too much) all the while dealing & working through some internal struggles with the brand which I’ll elaborate more on at the end of the year. Don’t worry though, because we’re not going anywhere but up from here!
Now, what’s going on with SP for the rest of the year G? Truth is, amongst everything going on I’ve been sketching and planning A LOT! In the past, I’d have some ideas mapped out about a season in advance & would operate from that. When you run a brand (for the most part) all by yourself, you often times can stretch yourself too thin. From coming up with ideas, to getting them printed, to “marketing” them and making sure you have enough cash coming in (to keep operating), it can be too much at times. So, being the control freak that I am, I’m taking more of a pro-active role in our future releases by mapping them out in advance (a little farther out) so that I can get them out earlier in line with the seasons; to also save my sanity from being behind. While I originally intended to put out a whole new collection for Winter, I won’t be able to. What I will do though, is bring back some popular designs like I did at the start of the year.
On Monday (9/28), you will see the return of our Premium Winter jackets & Ski-masks which will be available as Pre-Orders. They will be up in the shop for a week so DON’T SLEEP, as if I decide to print a couple more they will be VERY limited! I’ll assess this once all orders are in, but the only way to guarantee your piece’s if you take advantage of the Pre-Order!
Once our Premium line is done & ordered, I’ll then drop our Winter Reprints. These will also be available to Pre-Order and once again, the only way to guarantee your gear is to get it ahead of time! I’m starting to go the way of Pre-orders (for select releases) as it is more of a custom process for you & furthermore saves me some cash to work on new gear (as opposed to having extra gear on hand sitting around). Unlike our typical Winter drops, this years won’t be a large release. As mentioned before, I’m currently in the planning phase of 2016 and have been waiting to re-release some of our past pieces for a while, so the time’s now! Look out for at least 3 designs to be reprinted and maybe in the meantime I’ll sneak peek which ones I’m referring too. But, if you’ve been with us through the years, you probably already know which ones are making a comeback…
So, I’m gearing up for a nice end to 2015 and an even better 2016, thank you for your continued support!
Until next time,
