FACTORY TALK

 

Hey everyone,

I hope you are all safe and sound.

Given everything that is going on in the world, I have only less important news to share.

Yesterday, we closed the factory.

We had a meeting in the morning and asked how everyone was feeling about coming in.

Some people were not comfortable.

Most put their hand up to say they wanted to carry on.

Then we all met up (at a safe distance) in the afternoon, and decided it was best to close.

I always harp on about creating a safe place for people to do their best work, and then suddenly plan A is not available.

There were tears. There was lots of looking at the floor. There was lots of silence.

In these moments, you begin to see how much you mean to each other.

Sure, you moan and groan about this and that, but this is our community.

And you may not always say it, but you really like each other.

Yup, hard work is hard work, but it is also where the banter and laughter is.

And heck, we are going to miss each other.

I promised everyone that I would make sure they had a business to come back to.

That quote came to mind ‘I haven’t come this far to only come this far’.

So, if you get more emails from us in the next couple of months than normal, that’s me trying to keep my promise.

And lastly, thank you for all your support. I know we made the jeans, but you built the company.

Teams win,
 
Stay safe,

 

David Hieatt

P.S. Last time I closed the factory at Christmas, I gave everyone a bottle of organic prosecco. This time I said they could help themselves to the toilet roll. How things change, huh?

P.P.S. The team will send through order updates.
