Taking it in our shorts…

Howdy rabble.

Smokey August 2021 ends, and September arrives in Duluth. What a weird summer.

Jason (LRB) and I have been pounding our heads on the table. The market crunch of the last 18 months shows on our bottom line. Our material prices have increased as much as 40%, as well as shipping.  The only course for us both was a price reset.

Most of my retail prices increased $30-$40 to keep pace with jumps in fabric, hardware, and thread. Jason made the same adjustments.

Neither of us can take it in the shorts and stay in business. Get it. Shorts?
