We're back for what probably will be the last BTS of The Pen for the next 6 weeks... Due to Melbournes new stage 4 lockdowns we able to stay running, unfortunately our friends over at Halide have to shut (where we get the film developed - shoutouts Halide)
This week we followed Alex to the makers and printers again for what could be the last of our pickups. J1m stops by again for a chat about an upcoming colab, as well as to shoot our new Ivory Full-Kit. Then there's the usual stock coming in, the boys hanging out and the dogs going crazy...

Panels for our Ivory Anorak.
One of the best parts of manufacturing locally, is the ability to quality control regularly.
Panels for our Syracuse Crew,
You can see the fabric roll used in our Peach Anoraks here. We are 100% Cut-and-Sewn here in Melbourne.
Panels are then loaded up to take to the printers.
