We love hearing from happy customers!
I enjoy browsing Kickstarter looking for projects to back. I think it is a great way to support small companies and new ideas, and be on the edge of the latest new projects. This project, however, goes back to basics in a great way. The Grunion Run is an online shop run by a husband and wife, Kevin and Yun, out in California that focuses on stylish and affordable groomsmen-ware that can also be worn everyday. After seeing some of their styles I just had to get on board.
I had some early concerns about fit, as I often have a hard time finding dress clothes that fit me off the rack, so I fired off a message. Yun got right back to me with the info I needed. After the project had been successfully funded, I also had a trouble deciding which of the rewards I wanted. I sent off another e-mail with some of my thoughts to see if they could recommend something for me. Not only did I get a fast response, but they had even put together some options and sent me pictures!
Long story short, I received my reward package from them today and couldn’t be more pleased. All the pieces were professionally packaged and wrapped in paper. The handwritten note was an extremely thoughtful touch. I know the shirt could use an iron right out of the package, but I was too excited to wait. It fits great and is super comfortable. The tie is a nice weight, not to thick or wide, and a perfect length. The pocket square is a first for me, but I look forward to wearing it when I go out on the town.
