CHAZ DILLON CASES - "under new management" - 05-22-2009, 08:15 AM

Hi Guys

I'm a local friend of Chaz, investor and probably his first customer.

He's asked me to come on board as a "managing partner" to keep the parts flowing in, and cases flowing out.

I'm an operations / project manager. I know nothing about leather working, so, relax I won't touch your case. I'm just going to try and deal with the emails, ordering, shipping and some design ideas.

This is a hobby / side business for us both right now, meaning we have day jobs. The plan at present is to finish up existing orders, and make sure everyone is happy.

We are NOT taking new orders right now. If you want to EMAIL me (as in NOT PM) I will add your name to a waiting list, and we will take your orders on a first come, first served basis.

Looking forward to exceeding your expectations.

Eric Stanley

We made a trip over to visit a supplier the other day.

This is a quickie cel pic I snapped of Chaz's work bench.

Yes, those are tags, and yes, everything is "real".

This is kind of the direction things will likely be heading, when we "re-open for orders" in a few weeks.

Chaz is (FINALLY!) working on a case for himself out of the "grey stuff" on the left, and well.... it's understated leather porn, and "smells like peanuts".

I'd be willing to check these out. Does he have any finished that I could check out, or are the first ones still in the process of being made? Also, do you have an price estimate for a 3X6?

That's what we're doing right now, is catching up, getting our head above water, so there's no more missed deadlines or rushed cases.

We are working with a supplier on internals for the Pro-lite style, 2x4 and 3x6. They are really nice.

To answer your question about price, it's going to vary greatly, as much as 4-5x difference depending on the material, between say untooled cowhide and real crocodile.

I have a couple combinations in mind, like Ostrich / Ostrich leg, and Shark / Stingray, that should be very sexy. Chaz also has a couple oil tanned, crusty looking reg'lar ole cowhide that I think are going to make really cool, and less expensive cases.

We will be running a couple VERY BRIEF GRAND OPENING SPECIALS on the first few exotics we do, so stay tuned.

If you want to email me what you're interested in, I will be happy to quote you a price and grab you a spot on the list.

OP, Can I get a status check on my case? I traded my OB to Chaz mid-April. I did forget to make one request- that it be able to fit a 32" butt. Not sure what that will do to my delivery but any info would help. Can't seem to call up Chaz.

Here's some stats to identify it:

dark brown leather
handle + strap
justis style case
no pockets
32" butt/shaft
tooling up to chaz to let his creativity flow

Thank you.

Also, props to chaz for getting someone to take care of the "extra" stuff to free up time for making cases.

Just got off the phone with Eric, I'm glad someone is stepping up to help Chaz out with these cases. I cant wait to get mine but am willing to wait for perfection. Eric seems like a straight shooter no BS and was very helpful in finalizing my case design and features. Cant wait to see this old school vintage looking case.

Thanks to both Chaz and Eric,

Nate

Thanks for the patience and support guys.

This little hobby venture is more complex and time consuming then we even anticipated!

We are going to SLOW DOWN, and straighten everyone out, then strike out anew.

Hang in there, we will get you something you're VERY happy with.

I totally agree. I spoke and emailed with Eric over the weekend about my order and definately seems to be about the business. I look forward to getting my custom Chazdillion case.

Chaz has them all, and I've banned him from the forum.... for now.

When he has new cases finished, he'll be back, and with pics.
