Our production teams have reached a crescendo. With all the wonderful orders we've received from you, our clients, we believe we have peaked in our production time - 25 business days for new orders of our custom-made garments to be completed and shipped. We know this is difficult for some clients, but we appreciate you staying with us through these unbelievably challenging times. From the bottom of our hearts, merci.

Two steps forward, one step back? One step forward, two steps back? When life gives you citrons make limonade? Regardless the cliché, life and work continue to be challenging for everyone. Due to the recent volume of orders we've received it is now taking us an average of 20 business days to custom make garments. We apologize immensely for this but our printmakers and couturières are working their hardest yet bursting at the seams.
In addition, California extended their stay at home period but are guiding us towards expanding the work in our atelier - thus we are still uncertain when we can increase staff and shorten our timelines. Orders out of Europe are a bit quicker - still around 15 business days to complete - but shipping from Europe is taking significant time to find its way through the various international mail systems.
We appreciate all our clients and your tremendous patience. We hope there is more light at the end of the tunnel by the end of May. Until then, we wish you all the best! Nous vous souhaitons le meilleur!

A quick update with a ray of sunshine. Our time to make garments for an order now averages 15 business days, but we see signs of improvement. Paris is only a week away from an end to total lockdown, with some restrictions ending on Monday May 11th. Our atelier in Latvia has been operating quite efficiently and getting a bit better each day. Our atelier in California is still a challenge, but state regulations may be eased earlier than expected, with a chance we open more fully next week. We know that all of this will be slow and gradual but we are truly looking forward to life feeling slightly more normal and regaining some semblance of freedom. Vive la liberté! This Lions needs to roar!

Mon Dieu! Our sincerest thank you to all our clients. We thoughts purchases might slow down during this difficult period for everyone, but they have in fact sped up! Unfortunately it is now taking us longer to make garments due to Stay at Home orders and social distancing guidelines, with the current average time being 12 to 16 business days. If you have a little patience we will gladly make whatever you desire! Please stay strong, stay safe, and stay healthy!

We continue to adjust as Stay at Home orders are adopted in counties, states, and countries where we make our garments. Our Los Angeles operations are running at a very reduced capacity and we've shifted to North Carolina, while our Latvian operations continue to operate in a relatively normal fashion. Shipping times are somewhat extended as parcel processing has slowed, while overnight and express two-day can no longer be guaranteed and we've removed these as shipping options.
This global crisis has affected everyone. Paris is in lockdown as are many cities and places around the world. We hope that you and your family and friends stay safe and healthy. Try to stay active with exercise each day, eat healthy, and get a breath of fresh air when you can. Find moments to slow down and reflect or meditate, focusing on the present moment to relieve all anxieties. Control what you can and accept what you can not. And remember, you are not alone - we are all in this together. All of our best wishes to you.

As you know, every garment we sell is custom made-to-order by talented designers, print makers, and couturières. We have always been decentralized, working from home and small offices in different parts of the world - Paris, London, Berlin, New York, and Vancouver - with some cities being impacted more than others.
Many members of our team, and those of our suppliers in Riga, Latvia and Los Angeles, California, rely on Lions of Paris for their livelihoods, so we are working hard to maintain a healthy work-life balance. As such, we have implemented new measures to ensure everyone's health and safety. Everyone who can is working from home, and those who are working on-site have had their shifts staggered to limit contact, while the frequency of cleanings has increased. This is managed continually and anyone who feels sick is required to stay home.
All our efforts may have an impact on how long it takes to make your garments and ship your order. It usually takes us 3 to 5 days to complete making your order, and 2 to 10 days for your order to ship and be delivered. Orders may now take a few additional days to be completed, and shipping times globally may be longer as shipping companies deal with the situation.
We sincerely thank you for being a client and are appreciative of your patience.

The streets of Paris have become eerily empty and it feels unbelievably weird. We are so happy that everyone is practicing social distancing in order to keep everyone safe, but it is a strange sight. P.S. This was taken while on a quick grocery and essentials run.

The realities of the Coronavirus outbreak have begun to truly hit home. We are making rapid adjustments to deal with the evolving situation. We will begin to post updates for our clients regarding their order and shipping times, and how we are managing through this. It appears as though the tourists have left and only locals remain. These are strange times...
