Have a question?
Thanks, that's what we need, getting updates.
@Boris I am sorry that we have not had better communication with you. Our timeline was to get them shipping out in April. It is still April and we do hope to get them out before month end. Our Manufacture is behind, but we are working with them to ship out just what we need to fulfill our Backers orders. We will keep you posted. Thanks
It looks like you are not on schedule. Better tell us to know to expect or not. Its better to know, that we are not getting on time than waiting without any clue.
Are you on schedule with the product?
I guess no glasses soon
Any reason the updated photos look drastically different to the campaign photos?
Rusty, which stands as the forefront of the campaign is significantly lighter (light oak vs dark oak for example), and while I know it is supposed to be "distressed" wood, relix and rusty particularly are looking like pallet wood with dark dye added to them...
Veteran /Camila were supposed to be golden metal and now are black?
I also wasn't aware the fronts were being made from plywood.....
As we are getting closer to April, which is the estimated delivery date, a new update will be good.
@evan update is posted
@Creator How about that update? I am not appreciating this lack of communication.
@boris We are in the process of getting pictures and designs done for our final look. We will get them posted as an update soon. Thank you
Thanks. And how about final or close to final design of glasses.
@boris As of right now we are still on track to get glasses shipped to you in April.
Any update will be apriciated.
@Kyle I am sorry that this campaign did not meet your expectation. We appreciate your support in all of our campaigns. The prototype of the orange Bomber glasses are awesome and we are hoping that in the future we can expand the lens and frame color options with all our Urban line. Our Gunnison glasses in our Timbermine line offer a orange mirrored lens, if that is something that interests you.
In the prototype phase, you guys showed the Orange Bomber glasses and that's what totally sold me on this line. Now I'm sad to find out I have to rely on the community to market Westwood just to get achievements? Disappointing to say the least.
Honestly, I wouldn't have considered backing this line as quickly had I known this was going to be the way things were handled.
This will be my 3rd Westwood pair of glasses too.
@Evan me too.
I know we haven’t reached the stretch goal, but I would greatly appreciate a hard case instead of a pouch
@luke, Thank you for your feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve our delivery. This kind of feedback is very important to us and we truly appreciate it. Thank you for backing our new line and your continued support for Westwood.
Backed as I really like the Rusty glasses style, however must admit am a bit put off with the spammy 'encouragement' to promote your business everywhere...
I'm happy to help by 1. making a project happen (after all, I want the item) and 2. Get better rewards (because who wouldn't) but I'm not too keen on being told how to do to be honest. I think you are the first project I backed where I get an instant message asking me to share the kick starter project :/
Then the achievements... Where do I begin on that.
Finally, I think with an expensive pair of glasses some kind of case is required - be it a simple cloth bag and you in fact provide this. An upgrade to a hard pouch isn't that necessary IMHO and becomes obsolete if we reached the final goal so seems kind of meh?
Secondly wooden decal... this just comes to this whole "advertise us" theme and honestly... why waste our money on making this? What is it even for than to add to landfill? OK, I would use it as a coaster.
Hopefully it will get many more backers. It's good for all of us.
@Boris, thanks for the feedback. We've been surprised in some of our previous campaigns at how quickly the backer count can grow. We're going to push hard to make it as big as some of our previous campaigns and we hope you'll share about the project as well. Regarding taxes and duties, they are the backer's responsibility (see note at the bottom of the campaign).
Also I was hoping for a hard case from the beginning. I don't see how the project can get 500 backers.
Thank you. What about customs fees and VAT for European backers.
@HecticlyRelaxed thanks for putting us over the top!
@Boris we've posted an update with stretch goals and we're pulling together some FAQs based on feedback we've received so far. We'll get FAQs posted soon too
Any update would be nice
Yay! One of my favorite companies and I got to purchase the pair that kicked them over the $10,000 funding goal!
Once the campaign ends, will we then be contacted to select which pair of sunglasses we want? The pledge form didn't ask us to pick one.
Oh I see, I didn’t take into account my pledge also includes shipping, sorry about that.
@Tom Geier, the early bird is $60 and the regular is $70. https://www.screencast.com/t/y0RLhtVe
Wait so the early bird costs $75, but the regular cost $70. What’s the go with that?
@annie The rate at which your first pledge is, just double it. So If you are a early bird at $60 then if you want two it would be $120.
Awesome! Take my money!
So I'm an early bird if I want 2 pairs just increase pledge by another $50?
@Patrick, @Ashraf what you can do is increase your pledge amount and at the time of the survey we will make sure we send out two pair.
Echoing my fiance and I love your glasses and want to support this campaign too. Needed to get in before the cap, but we want to get in for two pair too if we can!
Welp you got me a third time now....
Yes! More Westwood greatness! Previous backer on both campaigns and constantly informing people in Jersey about you guys. Any chance I could grab two pairs at the super early $50? I already backed one pair but would love to get the gf a pair at that crazy rate too.
Thanks. I found it on the website. I'm using the app and I guess there is no gallery there.
@Boris, just below our video on the main page is a box that has a green button that says' view gallery." It is right before it says "About this Project". Please let me know if you have trouble finding it and I'll try to explain it better. Yes the lenses are polarized and they are 100% UV protection. They are great quality!
Also what is the sun protection and are the lenses polarized and of good quality
Hello, on the camping it says to see the prototype gallery. Where can I find it. Thanks
@Annie this is a great suggestion. We're concurrently running a sale on the website during the campaign, so you can get a great deal and get the sunglasses from our previous collections without having to wait. It would be effective to offer them as an add-on during the backer survey to save backers some shipping. We'll talk it over with the team. Thanks for the suggestion.
Would you guys consider adding your other collections as add-ons during backer survey?
Thanks so much Nikolas! We are super excited about this new line!
Woohoo backed last two projects....great quality best of luck on another Kickstarter campaign.
