Crazy train rumbling through Leadville!

Mobs of Melly fanatics have devastated the inventory in our Leadville store. Melanzana has manufactured over 20,000 garments so far this year, and we’ve sold pretty much every one. (The 18,606 in the pic above were the numbers as of July 2nd.)

Inventory in the store is PALTRY! We are cranking out 750 to 800 garments per week, including about 500 Micro Grid Hoodies per week. Most of it sells right when it hits the retail floor.

Mail Order Shutdown – and a new future!

We are no longer accepting web or phone orders, until Spring 2018. We are SO sorry to all our far flung fans, particularly those of you who have been watching and waiting patiently for that sweet new Melly.

Unfortunately, something had to give. Exploding demand, and ridiculous 7 month delays at Polartec (our fabric supplier), have left us with chronically low inventory.
