Can I put myself down for a Monaco please? I'm a ladies size 10 at the moment so what ever that would equate to as I plan on staying that way by doing tri's!

Are sizes needed or do we provide that later ?

Bringing forward the starting post for reference

Schmunkee - The List Fairy wrote (see)

I am starting a new thread, but still bringing across the list from last year.

Basic Info

We can order any of the kit items listed <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a>

Louis Garneau need a minimum order of 12 units per item of kit.  We require a minimum order of 16 units to allow for any changes in demand

If an item is ordered that has never been ordered before there will be set up costs involved surrounding art work etc.  These costs will need to be absorbed by those ordering the relevant item

Louis Garneau kit comes up on the small side.  Please refer <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a> for guidance, although it is strongly recommended that you find someone a similar size to you who has previously ordered LG kit

Order Process

An order will be submitted around March/April and September/October subject to meeting minimum order levels

Those on the list for an item meeting minimum order levels will be sent a PM asking for contact details and sizes to be mailed to a particular address

When we have this info, you will be contacted with payment details.

When all monies are received the order will be sent to Louis Garneau.

Payment via Paypal will not be allowed unless certain circumstances apply.  If paying by Paypal is allowed, the payer must meet the costs of the payment

Approximately 6-8 weeks later the kit arrives at Kit Towers where it is batched and despatched

The kit will be sent out 2nd class, non-recorded. If you want the kit to be sent out via recorded delivery or 1st class the costs of this must be met by yourself

Hi List Fairy....thankyou for the detailed the Sept/Oct above 2013 or do you think an order will go in for this Sept ?

An answer from a couple of pages back explaining when next order is likely to be

Schmunks are you looking at filling the gillet order anytime soon now that the required numbers have been met?  <crosses fingers>  I fully appreciate there won't be time before Outlaw!  But, as the weather is somewhat 'changeable' at the mo the gillet could come in handy anyway!




Schmunkee - The List Fairy wrote (see)

Erm, probably not.  I don't really want the hassle of ordering each item as soon as it reaches the minimum level.  I was rather thinking of only placing an order once (maybe twice) a year depending on demand, although I do appreciate cycle tops have also reached the minimum number needed

If tri shorts and/or monacos also reach minimum I would be more inclined to intiate an order.

Also, I am wondering what interest in kit may be like after 1 July from newbies who see us out and about at the Outlaw

I guess I will revisit my thinking in mid-July

I have been thinking of ways to ensure we don't 'lose' people from the lists from the point they have put their name on the list to the point minimum order levels are reached.  Also I want to speed up the process from the point we reach minimum order levels until we submit and pay the order to LG as changes in exchange rate cause serious problems when trying to price the kit

One solution I have thought of and am going to put into practice is getting contact details ie real name, postal address, email address, and mobile phone number from people at the time they ask to go on the list.

This will hopefully mean we have a couple of ways of getting in touch with people to make sure they are still interested in kit especially if it's a long time since their name went on the list.

So, please be advised that after Outlaw I will be contacting everyone on the kit so far for the necessary details.

Fairy can you add me for a mensTri shorts please.

For those who have put their name down for a gilet I have written to LG today for a quote as it's been a while since they were last ordered and as such the exchange rate has gone up and down, and postage has gone up.

I'm wondering about female kit? Does this company do female monacos, or are the ladies just wearing the tank tops? And I'm wondering whether there will be enough females to reach a minimum order level? I prefer the monacos (less revealing, I think?) but no one seems to want these other than guys?

I'm just throwing this in, but there was a post on another thread about a previous supplier having spare kit still in stock. They only have a T shirt in my size, but also said this in the email -

When we first produced some kit for Pirates, we managed to make several
mistakes, but I can assure you that we would not let you down, should you
order with us again!

Kind regards,

I don't know the history behind the change of supplier but wondered whether they're worth a second chance since their minimum order is only 5?

Not wanting to upset the apple cart but it was just a thought ...?

Anyone is free to start a kit thread to garner interest in an alternative kit supplier, but we tried Carvalho before and, as they themselves, admitted they made mistakes.  Mistakes that meant people didn't get the kit they wanted to the extent that Carvalho have been left with kit for 2 years that they cannot get rid of

Do you want to deal with someone like that just because they have a minimum order level of 5? 

Do you know the quality of kit?  Is it comparable to LG?  Do you know their prices?  Is it comparable to LG? Do you know the fit of the kit?  Is it comfortable?  How many people have Carvalho kit that can help with sizing issues?

We know the level of service and quality of kit we can expect from LG and I think you will find people will be very very reluctant to go with another supplier.

Barley covered this more eloquently in September last year than I have here but I cannot find his post to quote it.

There is the adage 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', but as I said, there is nothing to stop you starting a thread seeing who wants kit from Carvalho
