Managed Expectations | ACL Shop Update

ACL & Co. bags...

Dearest ACL brethren,

The plan all along has been to launch the ACL Shop this fall, something I have been saying for months now. Well in the interest of quelling the impatient messages and comments (everyone is asking me everyday), I feel it important to set the record straight. THE ACL SHOP IS GOING LIVE ON NOVEMBER 23RD, 2009. This of course, barring force majeure. The shop will be offering a limited selection of goods under the ACL & Co. label, plus collaboration items from a few other designers (which will be announced on the 23rd). The selection will be minimal at first with new goods coming in every month for the next several months.

Those of you in New York City on November 20th – 22nd will have the option of getting first crack at the ACL Shop merchandise at the Pop Up Flea. I look forward to seeing you then!

    Can’t wait to see the bags in person. What kind of price point are we looking at for them?

    And when is the confirmation that ACL. will be the official supplier to the Cleveland Browns?

    Whether it comes out sooner or later the products will speak for themselves.

    These are zip up sleeves, similar to Klein tool bags, correct?

    Just looked over the shop offerings.
    Nice work, brother.

    I like the look of the pocket pants, but I’m a bit bigger than your opening offering :)

    Very happy for you.
