News / How we are coping as a business during the Covid-19 Pandemic
« on: March 28, 2020, 01:36:21 pm »
All,

I thought it would be useful/interesting for you to know how Iron Heart as a business is dealing with the current situation.

Our goal is to keep everyone in the Iron Heart ecosystem (IHJP, IHUK, retailers, the mills and the workshops) healthy enough so we have a business when we get out the other side. If any link in this chain breaks, we are all at risk, obviously, there is little point in IHUK surviving if we have no workshops left to make product.

This is a complex juggling act, because we absolutely need to slow production down to deal with lower demand, but if we put our foot on the brakes too much, the workshops become unviable.

Currently, our online sales are holding up remarkably well, our biggest issue is that most of our retailers around the world have had to close down their physical stores, though of course most of them are still running their online shops.  That means that their ability to pay for product already received and product already in the pipeline is seriously compromised. And, of course, if they are shut, we can't ship to them.  Bottom line is that even if we slow production down, we are going to have significant cash flow problems.

Then, of course, we have the issue of trying to run the business with the safety of all our staff at the forefront of our minds.  We only have 2 people going into the offices at the moment, all the rest of the staff are working from home.  If we do not have work for them, we are asking them to take holiday.  They, as expected, are being absolutely brilliant.

From an IHUK point of view, we believe we have secured a decent sized loan from the bank (our business hitherto, has been healthy, so we have good accounts).   We have also been offered a substantial loan by a friend of the family at virtually zero interest.  Haraki has also secured some government-backed loans.

On Monday, we have a conference call with H to discuss what and how we slow production down. Then he will visit all of the mills and factories next week (a 4,500km round trip) to discuss the situation with them and reassure them that we will do our utmost to support them.

We understand many of you are not able to consider buying anything other than essentials right now.  But, we have to keep trying to do the best we can do to keep this business viable for the long term.  So, please forgive us if it appears that we are just carrying on as normal and are unaware of the gravity of the situation, we are acutely aware and are trying to be as respectful and as empathetic as we can possibly be in all our outward-facing communications.

We are happy to answer questions if you have any, but given how rapidly the situation changes, we simply may not have firm answers....

In the meantime, I'm starting a Levain....

Iron Heart Meet Ups & Travel / 2020 - Giles and Paula go to Japan
« on: March 06, 2020, 07:10:19 am »
I have not been to Japan for 18 months and Paula not for nearly 2 years, so when we decided to show the FW2020 collection to our Chinese retailers in Shibuya, we jumped at the chance of going. 

The Coronavirus hit and the Chinese were not allowed to travel, we decided that we would go anyway as we felt it important to show Haraki the respect of meeting him on his turf and not always expecting him to do the travelling.

@Chap was going to come with us and we were very excited about that, then he had to pull out.

We're deeply disappointed too...

Now in the back of a cab on the way to the airport and just found out that to hire a car in Japan (which I have already booked), you need an International Driving Permit, which I do not have.

It looks like I can apply online and have it emailed to be, but my UK driving license, which I need for the application is the the boot (trunk), so will have to wait until I get to the airport....

News / Changes to the Mod Squad
« on: November 21, 2019, 10:25:43 am »
Life moves on for everyone, times change and readjustments need to be made.

After chatting to the Mod Squad over the last few weeks, we have decided that it is best if @Chris , @Megatron1505 , @UnTucked  and @Snowy  stand down.

These good friends of ours have been invaluable in the moderation of the forum as it grew up from a tiny and sometimes turbulent place to a large, mature place that frankly requires less moderation than it used to. And the guys mentioned have moved on it their own lives, so their ability to actively partake in the moderation role has decreased.

Thank you all for your help over the years, without you, this would be a very different place.

With love, Giles
