Nine22 Apparel is finally shipping!
After some lengthy, all be it unexpected, delays, we are stoked to announce that we have finally begun shipping. Learning as you go, and learning fast, is a crucial part of running a successful clothing company, and infact, any company. We have certainly learnt that pulling together all different facets of production, and ensuring production dates etc are held to, is not as simple as it seems. We will be a lot more careful in the future about releasing confirmed dates, and will definitely be doing more to ensure we allow enough time for any delays.
Having said that, we are extremely happy with how our product has turned out. Being our first year doing this, we had no idea how to go about making it all happen, how to ensure our product was as we envisioned it, etc, but it has turned out as close as we could hope to what we wanted.
We would like to, once again, apologise to those who placed preorders over the previous few months, and give another huge thanks for sticking with us! We have received a massive amount of positive feedback since people have received their product, and we look forward to more constructive feedback in the future.
We now look forward to this coming northern winter, and you can expect to see a lot from Nine22. We will be releasing tons of edits, and you can guarantee you will see a bunch of our atheletes competing, filming, and generally being stoked on the hill. We also hope to announce some new delears in both the southern and the northern hemisphere real soon!! Our US team of Spencer Milbocker, Karl Fostvedt, McRae Williams, Patty Baskins, Nick Miles, and Corey Roberts, along with our Aussie team of Johnny Lipzker, Tom Costa, and Jodan Cook will all be setting their sights on big things this winter, and we will be sure to keep you up to date on it all!
Thanks again to everyone on the team, all those who got involved in the preorder, and everyone who has helped get this project up and running. We will endeavour to continue improving, both in the quality and design of our garments, and the way we run as a company. Head on over to http://www.nine22apparel.com to have a look at our store, check out our team, and keep up to date with what's happening at Nine22!!! We will be putting up some better pics of garments, along with a lifestyle shoot, in the next couple of weeks.
