YOUR SHORTS ARE EXPENSIVE

YOUR SHORTS ARE EXPENSIVE

We see this comment from time to time on social media and yes, we know our shorts are more expensive than a lot of highstreet shorts out there. 

This is always a difficult subject - but we’ll do our best to explain how we price our shorts. 

The first thing to remember is that our product sits in the luxury category and is priced directly in line with other brands in this sector. The quality of the craftsmanship and the final product is not what you would expect on the high street. We are more the Saville row suit vs high street suit - we always offer free shipping and returns so you can see this for yourself with no obligation. 

The second thing to remember is we are a sustainable brand that pays UK living wages, reinvests in our global environment and uses sustainable low impact materials. All of these factors do increase the cost of goods for us but does make for a brand of the future. A brand we are proud of and a brand with high ethics, values and standards. This is something our customers are also proud of when wearing Naeco products. 

When it comes to prices:

    1. Our fabric is ethically and sustainably sourced and produced. We ensure we know that everyone in the supply chain has been treated with respect and fair and ethical working conditions. 
    2. We don't just believe in making a sustainable product we also believe in being a sustainable employer. So every member of our team is paid a living wage. We are not a minimum wage employer and we take pride in ensuring we provide stable well-paid careers to our team. You won't find any zero hours contracts here... 
    3. We source our materials from suppliers who share our philosophy. 
    4. We make our shoes with no (or as little as we can) compromise on quality, ethics or sustainability, and we constantly invest back into these areas.  
    5. We invest in research into new, sustainable materials to reduce the landfill footprint globally. Every pair of our shorts removes 15 plastic bottles from landfill and our oceans. 
    6. Our products are handmade by master craftsmen and take 3 hours to make every pair. Every stitch is thought about and every detail is added by hand to ensure the highest quality finish that you rarely see in swimwear. 
    7. Finally, we guarantee our products for 5 years ensuring we deliver superior quality and service. We will fix and repair any product that has defected during this time ensuring you don't contribute to landfill and pollution. 

We are on a constant journey to improve every aspect of our business; from the designs and colours, to sustainable materials, construction, durability, repairability, messaging and marketing, supply chain speed and customer service. We have continuous improvement programs to bring you a consistent and delightful supply of the most sustainable and well-constructed shorts, and the planet.

Ultimately, we aim to provide the very best value to ‘you’ (our customers) creating a premium and sustainable product; good for you and the planet. 

And finally, when making choices about what clothes to buy for you and your family please consider: 

  • Cost-per-wear always makes investing in quality over quantity worthwhile! 
  • Sustainability should be a priority, not an afterthought.

 

We hope this has helped to understand our pricing model and how we create our garments at Naeco. We would love to have you as part of the Naeco journey so please reach out with any questions you may have. 

 

Thank you for reading
