Stripey Things Update

Stripey Things are getting nearer.

We received a sample from our supplier this week. Close but no cigar. We thought that you might be interested in our feedback. In an email we wrote:

"Thanks for sending the Stripey Thing sample.

The make is great. Thanks.

There are a couple of issues regarding the fabric … and one small issue re the inseam label. See below.

1. FABRIC WEIGHT

We like the feel of the combed cotton (good suggestion) … but the weight feels a bit lighter than the sample we asked you to match. I’m not going to go to the expense of sending the sample to Charles Parsons for analysis … but I did weigh the Large sample and it was quite a bit lighter: 306g v. 350g. We would prefer the weight to more closely match the previous please.

2. FABRIC STRIPES

These are still not correct. I could tell straight away when I unpacked the sample. See attached. The navy stripe should be 7mm wide and the white 10.5mm wide.

3. WOVEN CARE LABEL

Inside seam WOVEN label would have words on the back that is slightly different to the back of the labels used for the T Shirts. See attached.

Please ask the factory to have another go. It’s important that we replicate the weight and look of the legacy garment."

Christmas Elves & Organ Locators

Christmas Elves & Organ Locators

The HSC is done and dusted ... and so our school-leaving son Roman is oxymoronically free to be enslaved by us and put to work as a REMO Christmas Elf.

Here he is today showing off the Organ Locator T Shirt he made.

Degree of Difficulty = High

Each one of those typographic organs is a separate element. Compiling them in the exact configuration is no easy feat.

It's a great design though, don't you think? Available on white or (new this year) on black.

Notebooks for Holland

Lola returned to Sydney ever so briefly from her new home in Holland to attend her Nonna's funeral. We took the opportunity to stock her up on some wallplanners and notebooks for her own use, and as gifts for friends back in Delft.

Here she is in our garage ... with Melanie in the background packing some orders.

Wallplanners HERE. Our selection of Notebooks HERE.
