I ordered my Freefly camera suit from them at the end of May. I was told it would take until mid july. I finally got my suit in mid to late october. I love the suit, but not the wait.

Did any of you use the "rush" option? Just wondering what kind of turnaround time to expect on a "rush" order.

Two years ago I ordered a suit from them with the "RUSH" option. I called them and they said they could not rush it. Back then I got my suit in 9 weeks but that was after calling every week to try and get it expedited. They have great suits just a little slow on the order processing end.

ok... if you are backed up on orders and you take RUSH orders that means the people who ordered NORMAL would get pushed back even further.

Hence if you don't offer RUSH... you can push harder to build the orders you have faster out the door and you will make progress on getting your delivery times back to normal... if you don't, you'll never catch up.

Kinda like credit card debt...

FWIW

I usually try to interview the customer and get an idea of colors and styles that appeal to them in particular. Then I try to make it a bit unique.

In fact when someone comes in and asks for a jumpsuit just like "Johnnys", I say, "NO!, that's Johnnys, lets make one even cooler that is all you...."

Email Sherri and ask to see some of her more extreme suits. Shes got an absolutly stunning design on her personal suit. SeaMonkey on here has an entire suit covered with little stars, moons, and other things to make it look like a magicians cape, it's totally stylin.

I can definatly say, the pantz are worth the wait.

They fit perfectly and look great! They are black, with white/grey V strip on the sides. Sorry, no digital camera to give ya'll pictures.
