Our supplier is in a ditch, no Micro Grid until mid May.

maxresdefaultOur supplier has been consolidating their operations, and recently moved production from Massachusetts to Tennessee. Apparently, they got stuck in a ditch along the way, leading to some major delays . Our next shipment of Micro Grid fabric, which they initially promised a month ago, now looks to be arriving here at the end of April, two months late. Thus, no more Micro Grid hoodies, dresses, or anything else MG until the middle of May.

Meanwhile we are sewing up big piles of everything else, so check out our growing selection of Hard Face, High Loft, and Wind Pro. And many thanks to all you Melly lovers out there, we are busier than ever!

    Are you going to be making the womens Hardface Hoody in the azure blue color? Or the cool bighorn gray? Looks like new colors but only available in men’s sizes right now. The pastel blue womens is not real flattering. We like bright colors too!

      HI Amy – Azure and Bighorn were only used for the Men’s Hard Face this last time around, sorry. Next time we cut and sew Hard Face, which is at least two months away, we may have Azure in Women’s HF Hoodies. Lots of other colors available, including some bright ones!

      Hi VC – Please email our retail staff directly, info at melanzana dot com. They can look at whats in production and tell you when more W’s M Dresses are coming out. Color choices are limited right now because we have only been getting partial shipments of fabric, and our finished product sells quickly. I hope you get what you want soon!

    Got any more men’s Hard Face Vests coming in medium, coal? Need one!

      Hi Amy – Sorry we are out of the “Coal” Hard Face fabric, so there will not be any more Vests made in that color. There are some other dark neutral colors in stock, like Blue Graphite and Bark. I hope you find something! Please email our retail staff directly if you have any more questions – info at melanzana dot com. Thanks

    (1) not sure what the message on website denotes “replaced by Flash Movie” – pls tell me how to access whatever that is (annoying), and (2) have you been able to source another supplier than Polartec (who seems to not be helping your sales/production) to begin making Micro-Grid shirts/tops again. We have been waiting since April to place an order for such.

    Old business adage (which I learned the hard way) “Never become too dependent on one source of production.”””

      Hi Leighton, thanks for your comments.

      The box with the message about “Flash” is our product slideshow. “Flash” is an older web technology that is no longer included on many computers and devices. You can still see the product slideshows on older computers that have Flash, or you can install or turn on Flash on your browser on some newer devices. We ARE working now on upgrading that part of our website so that the slideshow can be seen on ALL devices. Hopefully in a few weeks…

      As for our supplier, Polartec actually has a lot of exclusive technology and processes that they use to manufacture their fabrics. We could buy a fabric “similar” to Micro Grid from another mill, but it would not be close to the same quality. Believe me, we have tried to diversify our suppliers, and will continue to do so. But we are very picky about fabric quality, and Polartec really does manufacture some uniquely awesome fabrics. Also, we only buy material that is made in the US, so that further limits our options.
