Quick! Call the Fashion Police!

Have you ever heard the saying, "If you don't understand history, you are doomed to repeat it?" Well here is an excellent reason to know about history because this should never be allowed to happen again:

Bah! My eyes! My eyes!!!

Now I like stripes and plaids as much as the next person but completely covering your entire body in them is, well let's just be honest here, it's wrong. On many, many levels.

Instead, go the more subtle route....like a really cool pair of rain boots or umbrella. But dousing yourself in stripes? No.

Expressing your personality is cool. Blinding the fellow human race...not so cool.

On a side note, I'm sure we all go on bike rides in double breasted clown suits...and what's with the creepy dude in the background? Ten bucks he is thinking, "Oh girls, you so need the help of Carson Kressley from 'Queer Eye.'"

See, even he knows its wrong.....so seersuckery wrong.

50,000 Shoes in 50 Days

DLL Rainwear has donated rain boots to a wonderful charity called Soles 4 Souls. Their goal is to put shoes on the feet of more than 3 million children and 1 billion adults worldwide who are too poor to own even one pair of shoes.

Their latest challenge is to have 50,00 pairs of shoes donated in 50 days...and there are only 26 days left! Below is a little information from the website. Read up and then go check it out to see if you can help.

Are you wearing shoes? Then listen up! We're on a mission: 50,000 shoes in 50 days. We can't do it without the help of you and your friends! Check out this video to find out how we can work together to supply the poverty stricken countries of our planet with shoes, a simple luxury we take for granted here in America. Times are rough, the economy is bad. But consider this... even the homeless in America are considered wealthy to the average person in the countries we're reaching out to during these next 50 days. So what are you waiting for?

To Call or Email?

People tend to feel that if something has to happen quickly that they need to pick up the phone versus send an email. Generally this is true...unless you are trying to get in touch with an online business.

Although DLL Rainwear does indeed have a phone, we don't respond to it as quickly as we do emails. We are almost always checking email, often on weekends as well. Our phone coverage is limited so if you have a question, comment, concern or an issue that needs immediate (or close to it) attention, please be sure to at least send an email as well as call.

Our phone is 831-621-1732

Right now our phone coverage hours are limited to the following:

MWTh 1pm-4:30pm

Questions? Complaints? Please Feel Free to Email!

Occasionally I get questions or complaints via comments posted on our blog. Unfortunately I can't easily address these issues that way.

Case in point:

A customer posted a complaint about being overcharged for shipping (we have a weird random glitch that seems to be charging some people big bucks for shipping---we're working to fix this, of course). Thankfully she also sent us an email and we worked it all out. But many people don't email.

If you post a comment here, I can't fix it for you. I don't know how to reach you.

If you have a question or complain, please do feel free to email us.

Our email address is info@dllrainwear.com

So please email me. I promise I'll do my best to help.

Not like I'm begging for you to send complaints or anything....but if you are having trouble we do want to know. We want to help you, really we do!

Oh and if you feel the need to send along a compliment, we gladly accept those too!
