The Epic Gang Are Back
In the words of the 1976 Thin Lizzy classic, ‘The boys are back in town’. Jimmy and I (Paul) have just returned to the UK from our first trip of 2014 to China to see new products being tested and to discuss what can be produced for us to meet exacting standards.
We flew out of London Heathrow on 5th January to Hong Kong before flying over to Beihai in mainland China.
Travelling from our HQ in Sheffield to our final destination in China takes a staggering 23 hours just in transfers, flights and the journey to the hotel.
A very short while after landing, off we went in search of the best factories to make this year’s new additions to the ranks. The weather, for the first time in many years was really quite pleasant and unusually so, particularly as historically we have been greeted by freezing temperatures and icy winds – it’s a shame that we took all our winter woollies as this just added to the cost of the weight of the cases.
We saw samples of new products, some of which sadly were CAT 4 but are absolutely gorgeous anyway so if you want to check out the products we saw, you can check them out on our YouTube channel or indeed on Instagram or Flickr.
Here is a small selection of some of the goodies we saw:
