    I am not a big fan of reviewing my own stuff. Just wanted to let you know about the site www.skinnywaterculture.com, and give you a little insight of our mission.

    We were tired of not having anything to wear that reflected our culture as a group of fisherpeople. There are many fishing apparel companies. There aren't however, many differences between them. It seems that they mostly follow the same business model. Find a way to draw a fish, and do every species that same exact way... We saw the trend, and wanted something different.

    We, and most of our friends, grew up in Florida, surfing, skateboarding, bmx riding, and fishing. The 1st three sports, all have giants in the apparel industry. I don't really need to name them.

    The one thing I noticed about all of them is that they don't exactly put a picture of a skateboard, or wave, or ramp on every shirt. They take elements from their culture, or lifestyle, and infuse them into the fabric. Through colors, cuts, and not so exact designs. When someone wears one of their garments, they are a reflection of that culture, without being so obvious... That is what we are on a mission for doing with fishing.

    We have big plans for technical gear, that is stylish and functional, but we are focusing on establishing a brand that can be recognized as a respected grass roots company that is an upstart of the fishing culture first. It is important to us that you feel that we are representing your life in the fabric of our company.

    We want you to have something to wear out to let people know you are an angler, or its your passion, without having to wear some kind of uniform, like the common guide shirt... I hope you catch my drift.. We were just tired of kids looking like their grandparents, just to prove to the world that they were grounded in the fishing culture.. I am not trying to slam any other company out there. They are all pioneers, and important to fishing, in their own way.

    We grew up doing what all of the members of this site love to do... Fish. But there are many other elements to the fishing culture, and our goal is to let you, as fisherpeople, express that in a way like you have never been able to do before.

    Our objective is to eventually become a seasonal apparel company that changes designs and artists, as often as the weather changes fishing patterns, so that you will always have something fresh to wear. It may take a couple years, but that is the plan. We are currently one and a half years old, and on our third line of new designs, with 2 different artists.

    If you are a member of this forum, I already know, that you get where I am coming from..

    holy crap, has it been 2 years already? I must getting old really fast now. :)

    heck yeah on the fishing, let me know when you think you'll have some time and you're more than welcome to come along. I have a bigger ride now too so having an extra body is far less of an issue than it used to be. Hunting season is on me now though, so I'm not trying to fish quite as much as I would otherwise, but will definitely keep you in mind when we do go. Something else to keep in mind is a dock light snooking trip down your way. It's getting a little too late now, but certainly as the winter fades into spring we'll want to do a lot more of those trips. I remember you had a pretty good pulse on that too. Stay in touch...

    Placed an order online last night for some birthday gifts. Today I received an email from Vince asking to call him on his cell phone. He went above and beyond to fill the order and was a pleasure to deal with. I'll post some pics of the gear in action Thanks again Vince!!! :cool:

So I just wont buy anything from them anymore and I will tell my friends to do the same. No Biggie here...Anyone want to buy 2 stickers? only $24.00 LOL

    That's interesting logic. I presume you've never made a mistake :-? They are willing to make it right and you continue to bash?

    Sorry you feel that way. We didn't know how to do everything when we started this whole thing, and we did have some mistakes. The person that emailed you back to call them was me, and trust me, I would have made it right by you. I understand your position, and it is OK. It makes me work harder at being better.


    I will also still offer you a full refund, like I would have done when I asked you to call. I just need your real name. You can email it to me vince@skinnywaterculture.com.

    For what it's worth. Vince is a cool guy. I have ordered several things from him in the past. One order was slightly screwed up, I called him, he made the refund, and then sent me a free t-shirt without me even asking. Can't complain about that one bit. Customer service is the most importaint thing IMO. Keep up the good work Vince.
