    Re: Shelby and "Bolster Gray" Fabric Group Buy

    I've sent in a sample of the OEM Shelby fabric and will be getting back a sample weave of the fabric that will be produced. It won't be the same colors but it will show if the weaves match which is the best I can do as once production starts with the actual colors that is it. I figured I'd wait until I get that back before taking deposits. Until that time and up until the deposit deadline people are welcome to add to the group buy. Once I start taking the deposits I will post here and PM everyone on the list with details.

    Moving along, nice progress. Clearly the demand is there as you(we) are way over the minimum number they wanted to produce the run

    Not sure I understand why they wouldn't just send samples of the correct colors tho, is our order going to be a custom COLOR as well as the WEAVE?

    Re: Shelby and "Bolster Gray" Fabric Group Buy

    This is my guess, and only a guess, but I'd imagine setting up a weaving machine takes some time and a decent amount of thread. The colors will be ordered to match those on the original fabric but with no money currently in hand he is probably not willing to put out that kind of investment. The weave pattern on the other hand is just a matter of programming so he could get me a weave sample using the colors he already has in his machine. I also asked if possible to have a sample with the shelby lettering though I don't know yet if he is willing to put the extra time in at this point. In his defense, and that is how I do business, nothing is final/started until money is exchanged so any time he puts in now is a risk he is taking hoping this random guy that came in to his shop will follow through with the orders he says he has.

    Re: Shelby and "Bolster Gray" Fabric Group Buy

    Will do Cindy.

    As an update I have a sample in at SMS and am waiting for them to return a sample of the reproduced weave, though in a different color. If that looks good I will begin taking deposits and will PM everyone on the list. When that happens you will have 25 days to get your deposit in and then I will start the production process. During this time if anyone else wants in they are free to add to the order. After this time the order will be closed.

    Re: Shelby and "Bolster Gray" Fabric Group Buy

    I've sent a sample in to SMS and he was going to get me back a sample of the weave for me to see before starting to take people's money. At this point he still hasn't got me the sample back. Before starting I had researched SMS and if anything the main complaint was that they were slow. I'm finding this is the case but I don't see any other options so I'm fine being patient. I just hope that by the time he gets moving there are still enough people interested to make the order go through.

    No problem. Sweet deal!

    He got the weave sample done and he said it looks good. I've asked that he send it to me so I can have a look and then we can start moving forward. As I've said before this will be a slow process but I'm willing to stick it out for the proper fabric as I see no other choice. I know you're not complaining or being a hassle, I just want everyone to be clear on the subject. Most of the negative feedback with SMS is how long they take and guys get impatient and quit. Momma didn't raise no quitter!!

    Excellent, you can have Milkcartons spot with an extra yard of base.


    For those reading the thread the group buy is open until I/we send in a deposit which I will post on this thread. I'm expecting that not all of those on the list will come through as that just usually seems to be the case but the more the better.

    Re: Shelby and "Bolster Gray" Fabric Group Buy

    Great news! I received a picture of the sample from SMS. I'll get a comparison photo up this weekend but I was too excited to not post it right away. Remember that these are obviously not the right colors as the proper colors will be custom died. This was just to get the weave and logo correct. It's hard to tell on the weave though it looks pretty close. The lettering on the other hand is spot on!

    Re: Shelby and "Bolster Gray" Fabric Group Buy

    Ok, here is a shot of the NOS fabric and then a comparison. The base material looks a little "flatter" to me so I will ask him about it. The letter on the other hand look spot on.
