    They are going to have to do better than $80/ pair for me.

    Happy they are running again, but bummed they changed the base design. Got a dozen pairs sitting in a box from the sale. Grandma Birdwell used to hook me up with pairs from the 80's that were cut a half size smaller. Super customer service. If they made a mistake on a custom order, you were put on "the list" where they would no longer sell to you. The good ole' days.

    Out of curiosity, and only because I have seen a shaper complain on this page about a customer for the same thing..........How is that super customer service if the business doesn't deliver what they were paid to do and committed to being able to accomplish, yet black balls the customer? Sounds more like a business that doesn't have ethics. It is either one or the other.

    Lucky Brand Jeans has sold Katin trunks seasonally in the past. I've purchased half dozen pairs @ $15-20 / pair. Love em. Killer pricing.

    I am on the Birdwell email blast and got an email about a watch. Photos looked cool and I thought it would be funny to have. Then I saw the price at $2200. Does anyone buy this crap? And if you do, I'll give you 100 bucks for the watch when the novelty wears off.

    Looks like something you'd get from a cereal box

    Looks like they gave them away to iconic surfers as promotional gifts. There’s an Instagram hashtag floating around.

    I'm an iconic surfer in my mind. Where's my watch?
