DRYSUITSdirect NEED your help!!!!

Postby petemes » Wed Feb 18, 2009 2:04 pm

Hi everyone. Very exciting times ahead. Obviously because of all the history in the past of us building up brands which have become extremely popular only to have them "taken off us" by industry poachers, I can finally say that I have got three new suits in our range which will blow your socks off!!!! AND still at competitive prices.

2 of them are front mounted High Density Trilaminate material and one is a 2mm crushed neoprene back zipped suit.

These suits will soon clear customs ready for show to you all. BUT I NEED YOUR HELP!!!

The Brand is obviously DRYSUITSdirect but I need to individually name the different types of suits ( I need 3 names!). SOoOooooooo I am running a bit of a competition. This competition doesnt boast massive prizes - infact no prizes at all!!!! Just knowing that you molded the history of this "World Famous in New Zealand" fledgling company.

ANY constructive name ideas for these suits would be REALLY appreciated. SO let it rip!!!!!


Since the dawn of having the 2nd Dealership taken from me I have been working tirelessly, talking to some of the worlds leading drysuit manufacturers to get them to make suits for me under liscence for my brand. And it has all paid off. They are amazing suits and built really well. ALL my suits will carry a LIFETIME warranty that I will stand behind 100% against ANY manufacturing defects (EVEN POCKETS!!).

Awesome Pete...
Any pics so we can sort of guage the suits for the names..its reasonably difficult without an image to put a name too.. :lol: (colour,style)

Halocline: For one I think would be a great name for a suit.

I have actually seen a drysuit with this design. A company in Orkney made a few of these spiderman suits. QUALITY!!!! unfortunately they made them in Neoprene.

"The gimp"????

Will put some thought to it. Pete. Can't wait to see the suits - Halocline is good, kinda fits alongside the 4thE offerings.

Oh I so like challenges like this. :D
I would stay away from any 'Tropical' names as Drysuits aren't the go in those regions.
I could offer the title 'Southern Gyre', or the 'Tasman' but people from the Northern Hemisphere could feel disengaged from the titles and females might find both titles a bit 'blokey'.
What then? Well, i'm gonna ruffle around and see what I can come up with.
If I do come up with something slick, then I just want the mandatory 10% discount as I do need to buy a drysuit eventually (my 7mm limit is 14degreesC)
(still unsure about crushed Neoprene or Trilaminate??)
Just drifting along with whatever is current.
Currently I'm reading : The Art of Innovation by Tom Kelley.
