Welsh Pants - An update from our founder, Patrick Grant

Hi everyone

This is just a quick update on the underwear because I know a few of you are worried that orders are still outstanding. Again my sincere apologies for the delay in making and shipping. There are two big things causing this. Firstly the really huge numbers of orders we had which has slightly swamped our small team. And secondly because order were so big we needed to order lots more fabric and trims, this is made especially for us and annoyingly there have been delays in receiving it. We were promised it all last month, some arrived last week, but crucially, we’re still missing a lot of elastic, and that’s pretty crucial stuff.

But the team have been working flat out now for months. Adam who does all the cutting and manages the production has taken a few pics. Here are Amanda, June, Jill and Hellen, this week, as you can see, mostly making men’s black trunks.

We’ll try to send pics every week from now on (not next week, because the team are taking a well earned break), just so you know how we’re getting on.

And of course, if any of you would like to cancel your order then please just let us know. We’d be very happy to give you a refund.

Have a great Christmas,
Patrick
