      There will be an update this week. Coupon codes going out this week too. Chivaz will be done at the factory on March 27. We hope to ship from California staring April 15

    2. Creator Joshua on March 19, 2013

      Any updates as to the status of the additional styles? It's been a while since we've heard anything, and I'm still looking forward to choosing my Chivaz.

    3. Creator Matthew Gilman on February 12, 2013

      Martin,
      We plan on having all of our styles available in early April. They will be finished at the plant on March 15th, but then we have to get them shipped here before shipping out.

    4. Creator Martin Oliver on February 12, 2013

      Any news on the scheduled delivery of the second set of designs?

    5. Creator Matthew Gilman on December 18, 2012

      Thanks danny! Glad to know they made it to Brooklyn! Thanks for the recommendations as well. I will shoot you an email with a code in it so that your friends can get a discount.

    6. Creator danny on December 17, 2012

    7. Creator Matthew Gilman on December 5, 2012

      Thanks Danny, I appreciate it. I am just sorry that i haven't been able to get these socks out sooner. Post office trip is planned after day job today!

    8. Creator danny on December 5, 2012

      sorry for your loss. all i really care about is the updates. if its going to be longer just let your backers know. thanks for the note. much success on your project and once again sorry for your loss.

    9. Creator Matthew Gilman on December 4, 2012

      I couldn't imagine that we would have missed November danny, I am really sorry. We are staying up late tonight trying to get the postage on the packages. I even included an extra pair for you when i was packing your envelope last week before I had an unexpected trip to NY because of the passing of a family member.

      If you would like your money back, please let me know. I can do that if you would prefer.

      Matt

      "danny:
      The socks will definitely be shipping in November. Thanks for checking in!"

      definitely=Without doubt

    11. Creator tarieg on December 1, 2012

      so you can get pairs in November and some in early 2013.

      really?

    12. Creator Matthew Gilman on November 20, 2012

      danny:

      "Good News:
      We are expecting the shipment of the first 2 styles of socks to be in our hands before November 15th! This means that we will begin shipping shortly thereafter. "

      should we assume that the socks are shipping ? you dont have an update of this.

      @Joshua...Fit guide for Chivaz is here: http://www.chivazwear.com/pages/fit-guide

    15. Creator Joshua on October 31, 2012

      Survey shows three sizes (S, M, L). How are these sized?

    16. Creator danny on October 26, 2012

      "We apologize for being a bit behind schedule, but honestly, Fall is going to be a great time of year to wear your new Chivaz."

      did you mean fall of 2013 ? yet another example of how kickstaller needs to do something to ensure projects have realistic timelines and are forced to take in to account delays that will occur. you guys should think of a way to reward your backers for waiting who knows how long for their socks. its the right thing to do.

    17. Creator Ron Maddux on October 21, 2012

      Ok. See the one from Oct 9

    18. Creator Ron Maddux on October 21, 2012

      Been over a month since we were told an update was coming soon.

    19. Creator Martin Oliver on September 24, 2012

      They'll make great Xmas presents ;)

    20. Creator danny on September 19, 2012

      november ?? Kickstaller strikes again !!

    21. Creator Matthew Gilman on September 19, 2012

      There will be an "update" coming out soon. But for those of you looking for something even less formal...

      We are hoping to get the website up next week. We are in the mass production stage of our first 2 designs. We are almost there on our next 6 designs.

      We probably won't hit September, but we should be looking pretty good for the following month. November at the absolute latest.

      As I said, a more formal update coming soon when I get a date from our production folks.

    22. Creator tarieg on September 18, 2012

      When can i choose my design of socks? when are you shipping??

    23. Creator Alexandre Delisle on September 17, 2012

      So how it's going with the project? We didn't have much feedback lately

    24. Creator JT on August 31, 2012

      Question: do Chivas contain any latex? I'm allergic, unfortunately.

    25. Creator jeremy on August 11, 2012

      Blue with stripes.....no doubt.

    26. Creator Joshua on August 10, 2012

      Any updates as to the status of operations? Are you still on track for a September timeframe? Are surveys nearing completion?

    27. Creator Zac Scott on July 27, 2012

      I'm digging the blue ones all day with Stripes as well! Good work fellas!

    28. Creator Jeffbz on July 27, 2012

      I like the blue ones!

    29. Creator chrisroat on July 27, 2012

      Blue with stripes!

    30. Creator Richard Ferrario on July 27, 2012

      The Blue ones are more suttle while the Red ones make a much bolder statement..... I vote for the RED ones

    31. Creator Eric on June 27, 2012

      go get 'em phil!

    32. Creator Matthew Gilman on June 18, 2012

      @ Minh Vo They are not pure cotton for sure. They are a blend of several materials including coolmax, cotton, nylon and a few other things, but I am going to keep that a secret for the time being.

    33. Creator Minh Vo on June 18, 2012

      What material are Chivas made out of? Pure cotton, wool, or some sort of blended percentage?

    34. Creator Zac Scott on June 5, 2012

      Looking forward to watching your company progress!!! Nice work fellas!

    35. Creator Josie & Heather on June 4, 2012

      Cant wait to see these socks hit the market...HH

    36. Creator Karyn Gilman on June 1, 2012

      This is a great project. For sure I am not prejudiced in any way.

    37. Creator Josh Lindsay on May 29, 2012

      Hey I could use some soccer socks, it would be rad if I could get put my own custom design on it. Some text with my name on it or something. JOsH
