Hey Kickstarters,We miss you! Please keep sending us updates and keep in touch by email, facebook and twitter. In return, we promise to keep you updated with all the happenings at MoS. Wondering where your Apollo shirts are?
Here’s the very latest:
We are still blown away by the amazing time we had on Kickstarter. We left with FOURTEEN TIMES as many shirts to make as we expected, and we’ve been working overtime to make sure it doesn’t take us fourteen times as long to get those shirts to your door and on your back! The bad news is that building a new supply chain to handle this huge order has caused a delay in our schedule, altering our initial projected ship date in August.
The good news? According to updated estimate on shipment dates, you’ll be rocking your new MoS swag by late September! We know this isn’t ideal, and if it was up to us, your wardrobe would’ve been full of Apollo dress shirts YEARS ago, but we appreciate your continued patience as we keep on trekking.
Pining for your Apollo now? We’re sure the feeling is mutual. Here is some insider information on where your shirt is AT THIS VERY MOMENT!
The road to your doorstep begins in Los Angeles at:
1. -The Dye House! It’s roughly a 2 week process: it takes time to get that perfect blue-ish blue or pink-ish pink.
2. -The Shirt Cuttery! From the dye house to the cutter, who uses robotic cutting to complete the job in about 1 week with unparalleled accuracy.
3. -The Sew Station! Putting the pieces back together again. Our sewers are all set to ramp up their staff to crank out our large order in roughly 5 weeks.
Check out the attached video to watch robotic cutters cutting your shirts last week.
We are so excited to get the Apollo into our offices and then straight to you! We’re sure you are feeling the separation anxiety already, so we have set up a support hotline 617.651.2340 where our wardrobe-anxiety specialists are waiting to take your call!
We look forward to hearing from you. In the meantime, stay secretly incredible.
