Take my money now!
Any system for putting a deposit down for one of these? Really don’t want to miss this one.

No sorry, it sounds like a simple thing to do, but it is not,  I have spoken about the impossibility of doing this in an efficient way many times.  Maybe someone can find a link to the reasoning.

I know this has been raised multiple times over the years, but given the popularity and availability of this shirt, would you reconsider your position on deposit/pre-orders? I know I'd be happy to pay a significant deposit to secure something I wanted
No.

Here's why.

We ask for pre-orders, we get the following orders:

S - 3
M - 6
L - 8
XL - 8
XXL - 4

We make those numbers and the sizing is a size too small.

We can thus fulfil:

XS - 3
S - 6
M - 8
L - 8
XL - 4
XXL - 0

So to avoid pissing people off (and I can tell you now, you would be a lot more pissed off with us if you had pre-ordered and then we could not fulfil), we have to over order, to ensure we can fulfil if the sizing comes out too large or too small.

So we get left with stock that we do not want, which means our cost base goes up and puts pressure on our prices across the board.

Anyone who says they can do pre-orders with clothing and not either piss customers off or increase their stock levels is talking through their arse.

Sorry, didn’t mean to create work, I’ve many many IH products and know that I’ve never seen a deposit scheme but was just asking on the off chance as I don’t want to miss out.

Getting in there on drop day is part of the game I reckon. These are seasonal so they will sell out. Watch this space.

I got this patch for the back of the vest. I am also looking into getting a couple thousand pyramid studs made out of brass, or carbon steel so I can blue them with gun blue. I think gun blue colored studs on this epic vest would be pretty sick.

Even though I’ve filled the form I’ve been checking this thread every day for weeks waiting for news. Far too excited about a new vest!

I also almost forgot about that. I think I need it, even though I will never become a fan of the copper snaps and am not rich enough for good art pimping. Are them snaps now the final choice?

I want it! And snaps make so much sense!!!

But, if it doesn't have a cinch back (I'm 1000% sure it won't  :'( ), I'll have to pass, most likely
