Custom coveralls?

Postby PaulSiegel86 » Oct 9, 2012 8:47 pm

Are there any other companies out there making custom coveralls?

I've tried contacting BC Wunderwear to order a set of wunderbibbs and had zero response; I'm not willing to work with a company that has such poor customer service. I've sent 3 emails and called twice. I've had zero response of any sort. I recognize that TAG was this weekend, but I started this process 7 weeks ago.

So: would any other gear makers like my money?

Apparently the B&C communication problem is a known issue. Too bad, Cecile is a nice lady.

You could try Lost Creek or GGG. I also hear Cavemud makes nice custom coveralls.

you're probably going to have to pick up the phone and call Ceclile. She's a wonderful lady, but at her age, she probably doesn't use email much.

I had a big hole in the back of my BC Wonderwear bib, and I gave it to her at the cave-in to repair. I got it back in a matter of a few weeks, and she had not only patched it, she patched it with a cool bat-shaped patch. Can't ask for more than that. She's a real sweetheart.

Honestly, I would just give her a call.

Graveleye, he already said he called Cecile twice with no response.

I'd recommend Lost Creek. Anmar is very responsive over email. He's user shibumi on here if you want to PM him.

Thanks Fellas,

I called two weeks ago and another week before that I believe. It's a pity, she sounds very nice, but I just cant put that kind of money down with so little response.

I'll shoot Shibumi and Cavemud a PM see what they says.
