IT’S been a while since we last chatted. I can’t think why…
I hope you and yours have emerged unscathed from this unprecedented sojourn which rudely interrupted our lives over a year ago. A lot of water under that bridge, is there not?
I thought I’d say hello again and welcome you back to Leggets, even though we’ve never been away; our intrepid team has managed to keep customers happy all though lockdown, and thank you for supporting our launch products – the likes of the acclaimedLeggets x Nick Hammond Oriental Cigar Gin, our stunning bridle leather card holders and more.
We’re madly photographing all the things we’ve been busy working on in the meantime, and I can reveal that more Leggets goodies are on the way to you soon. I can report that Leggets is now making beautiful leather-clad hip flasks in different sizes and in a range of stunning colours and finishes, from ostrich to bridle leather and beyond. We’ve crafted some fantastic new cigar folios which will safely hold your cigars, cutter lighter, mobile phone, diary and more when you’re out and about. We have a couple more projects nearing fruition that I’ll soon be able to tell you about, and plenty more in the R&D stage of development.
It’s really exciting working on projects and products like these, with a skilled and reactive set of people. We can do things that the big boys just can’t or won’t. What I can promise you is more and more cool, funky, inspirational and aspirational lifestyle pieces that will hopefully bring you joy and pleasure each and every time you use them.
I am tentatively getting back out and about on the road. I haven’t hit the airports yet, but plans are afoot, so it really feels like things are getting back on track. I’ve kept myself incredibly busy during lockdown, with online event hosting, the creation of my podcast,Around The World In 80 Cigars, the reading and recording of theaudio version of my book and working on new ideas and pieces to add colour and value. I really hope you like what’s coming.
Do let me know what you like and what you’d like to see – if you have any great ideas for accessories and more, we’d be delighted to hear them. You never know – they may become Leggets Limited Editions!
I’d be delighted to hear from you and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and patronage. It gives us all the impetus and enthusiasm to make more unusual, exciting and uplifting pieces for your delectation. Follow us, subscribe and like – and keep your eyes peeled for new goodies coming your way soon…
