Update on Estimated Shipping Timeframe
I have been working closely with the manufactures of The Drinking Jacket. And, while I am extremely happy with the final prototype and accouterments, I am frustrated with the speed (or lack thereof) by which this stage in the process has proceeded. With all of the delays, that have been out of my hands, it appears that The Drinking Jackets will not ship until late April.
I know, it's not ideal. But, as this was a Kickstarted project, and not something that was already underway, hiccups like this can happen.
I don't like that your hoodie will arrive to behind schedule, but I am confident that when you do receive it, you'll agree that it was worth the wait!
PS: I'm consulting for another Kickstarter project (gratis). Kabeer, who launched his Kickstarter campaign in December with lackluster results, reached out to me for advice. As most people on Kickstarter just ask for me to help promote their campaign, rather than asking for advice how they could improve their campaign, I checked out his project, loved his product, and happily went through the campaign and gave my input.
He took my advice and shut down his Kabaccha shoe Kickstarter campaign, tweaked his video, modified his campaign, and lowered his prices. I happy (and proud) to say that his campaign is now at $220,000 and well on its way to being the highest crowd-funded footwear campaign EVER. I'm stoked to get my Kabaccha shoes!
Another campaign that I'm digging is the Smart Rope. Pretty cool stuff!
