Hardcore Luxury® Best Wool in the Woods®

Partner Relations

All the companies and individuals that help us with goods or services are our Partners, and we're happy to acknowledge them.

We believe a primary key to working with our Partners is to describe to them our objectives, and let them tell us how to proceed.

WeatherWool is a small company aiming to grow. Some of our Partners are already BIG companies with BIG clients and VERY LARGE operations ... which means that WeatherWool may not yet justify the time and effort they have devoted to us. We are grateful and fortunate that all our Partners appreciate what we are doing and are willing to extend themselves for us in ways that sometimes do not really seem to make typical business sense. --- THANKS to all our Partners! --- Ralph, Debby, Alex, Denali

Our garments represent the expertise, dedication, cooperation and good will of a great many people and companies, collectively referred to here as PARTNERS.

All our Partners understand WeatherWool's basic concepts/goals:

  • Hardcore Luxury®
  • The best products and best customer service we can figure out
  • 100% American in materials and manufacture
  • Constant innovation, testing and improvement
  • Teamwork
  • If our customers do not advocate for WeatherWool, we have failed

Underlying these basic product concepts is our general philosophy:

Everyone has to be happy. If our Partners are not happy with us, we won't get their best. Everyone needs to try to minimize costs, but not at the sacrifice of quality. Every Partner can be squeezed, but that inevitably creates feelings and problems that we want to avoid. We need all our Partners to put their prideful best into WeatherWool.

Many of our Partners are shown as Advisors on this website, and we will be adding more information about more of our Partners. We view all our Partners as Advisors because all are career professionals that bring knowledge and experience in their specialties. Their collective knowledge is enormous, and it's very true that no single person knows more than a fraction of it. (I, Pencil is a great essay about how nobody knows how to make a pencil.)

Here is a list (and no doubt it will grow) of the areas in which our Partners help us make WeatherWool. The list is in the rough order of involvement in our production processes.

And there are others, too, that are critical but not directly part of production:

We know almost all of our major Partners fairly well ... some of them very very well, since 2010. We will continue to strengthen the relationships between and among all our Partners and Advisors.

Incidentally, a main reason for this page, and a somewhat unusual aspect of our philosophy, is to help our Advisors/Partners interact, and thereby better understand each other's needs and capabilities.

This page will grow with names of more Partners and links to further reading on this website as well as the Partners' own websites.

If you think your company can help us improve, please get in touch!! ... But please note ... my perspective is that you can't help us until you have experience actually wearing WeatherWool.

THANK YOU --- Ralph
