I just wanted to update you on club kit, and also on ordering for this winter. As you know, the last order we placed was with Giordana, as we’d been given a great offer by the company and wanted to save some money on kit. Most of what we got was great, sold well and has been well received, but we did have some issues with skinsuits and some cheaper shorts. Unfortunately the Giordana after service for this issue was shocking, so I made the decision not to order from them again.
We had a vote amongst the committee about what to do next – stick with Bioracer as a proven supplier, or look to Provision, who are cheaper and create great kit, but will be new for the club. The vote was for Provision, so our winter order will be from them.
Provision kit lead time is 5-6 weeks, but I have a couple of things to finalise with them first so that we have a confirmed kit design to the club’s colours. Whilst I do that, I might as well start collecting your orders now, and all being well will aim to place the order on Sunday the 30th September.
On the newly updated club kit page here… https://www.weavervalleycc.org.uk/club-clothing/
…you will find the full kit list for Provision, as well as the pricing. The price shown includes VAT and cover for delivery – what is shown is therefore what you’ll need to pay.
As they are a new supplier, you will also find the size guides for Provision, Bioracer and Giordana on the sheet. This way you can compare what you currently wear to judge your Provision size, and use the measuring guide to check. You need to be sure as kit will be ordered as needed and not stocked. I will be ordering some kit to keep for sizing for the future, but we obviously won’t have this for the first order. The good news is we only need to order 10 things from Provision to hit the minimum order (and it can be 10 of anything), so if Sept 30th is a bit soon, it won’t be difficult to stick another order in in a couple of months.
To place an order, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, as it’s the easiest way for me to record what you have asked for.
As with current ordering, you need to pay either 50% or 100% of the cost when you order, then before delivery pay the final 50% if you haven’t already. I prefer a bank transfer, please get in touch if you need the banking details. Please note I may have something in stock to suit e.g. I have several Giordana gilets, but can reply as such if you order something I do already have in.
So in short, we’re now with Provision, use the link to find the kit and price, email me before Sunday the 30th September if you want to order for anything. (I will be ordering a stock of summer caps, as requested by several of you.)
