Risks and challenges
We have come a long way! A few months ago, this risks and challenges section might have been a few paragraphs long. However, we've worked diligently to eliminate nearly all headaches and pain points in this Kickstarter campaign.
With that being said, here are our largest challenges:
Our largest challenge is setting up a reliable, long-term supply chain to supply our manufacturers. Sourcing fabrics, aglets, elastics, and drawstring has by far been the most time-consuming hurdle that we have encountered. However, we believe that we have finally achieved a supply chain that can handle a MASSIVE production run and satisfy our volume needs moving forward.
Another challenge for us comes in the form of fulfillment. This will be our first multi-hundred pair production run and we have yet to do a fulfillment at this scale. However, rest assured! Our team is devoted to getting you your shorts as soon as possible following a successful campaign. Through complete transparency and campaign updates, we've got your back!
Lastly, the current cost of our shorts is on the higher side... SOL is a premium brand and as you know it requires a higher dollar to be manufactured in the United States. We truly believe that our shorts will impress you so much that you won't mind paying a little extra for a pair of performance shorts that you LOVE.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
