New Socks ready to ship

Quick update for the end of July.

  1. My new socks, as well as some that were out of stock, are ready to ship! Now offering some new orange socks with hash feet, and green socks of the same design.
  2. Multi-Mark Towels are moving well and the order has been made. Hopefully production will finish within a week and can get shipped out from the factory.
  3. Halloween sock design was confirmed. More on that later

lost in translation


Ahhh, the joys of working with factories in China. I had a client ask for me to make some shorts in a more “American” sizes. So I talk to my factory rep, and use the waist sizes that I had talked to my client about.

Things seem to be fine. I order 100 pairs of shorts, and after the usual 15-20 days for production, I get the shorts to my place. They look great!
– but….. they are HUGE!! As a man that wears an XL usually, I find it odd that I fit into a Medium pretty easily.
What happened? I remember my factory rep giving me a size chart for the skirts that I ordered. It had the waist labeled as “half-waist”…
– my factory rep took the full waist size and took it that I meant that for a half-waist measurement. WTF?!?!?!!?

Well, looks like I have some shorts that will definitely fit the larger american market…

Happi Coats

Because I have been asked by my home kennel in Houston, I have looked into doing happi coats, and so it looks like the factory I know here in Shenzhen can do some for me for a solid price.

SO not only can I offer custom socks, custom shorts & shirts, but now happi coats as well.

as these are big things with a lot of fabric, they are a bit more expensive to mail. I had to wait a few days over the most recent Mid-Autumn festival to get a quote from the boss that knows the shipping costs.

This will be the first time the factory makes and ships the coats, so the current estimate is 25 coats at $35 per coat. I hope it all goes smoothly, and that I can continue to offer the coats at this price.  Something goes wrong, and the price could jump.
– not sure what the price of doing smaller number will be. Might find out soon if the comments on my facebook post is anything to go by…
