Are there any challenges to having a supply chain that spans the globe?
Oh wait, YES! About a zillion.
Honestly, Loudmouth is about having fun. And supply chain "challenges," as you euphemistically referred to them are NOT fun. However, FedEx has been able to solve most of them, so the supply chain isn't as much a "ball and chain" for us, which frees us up to be the fun stylish guys designing, producing, golfing in and partying in LOUD PANTS.
I grew up around the game of golf. My father was an avid player and while he tried to pass along this heritage, I could more often be found running through the woods to find stray golf balls rather than on the tee box. Despite the fact I’m not a golfer today, I’ve always had an affinity for the sport and its interaction with nature. Apparently, I am not alone.
I have had the opportunity to speak with many employees and stakeholders and read a number of the comments on this blog since our recent cost reductions announcement and I thought it was important to address questions that have been raised regarding our advertising and marketing programs.
