You want to buy my GUS suit? It's a size M.

It seems to me like LTP might just be the clothing equivalent of a rebranded cheap Chinese wheel.

They don't make it, they just take orders and fulfill them from plants in China. They don't have to maintain any inventory, just forward the orders. It's only a good business model when you have enough leverage (i.e. orders) with your manufacturer to get them filled quickly. If you're on the bottom of the totem pole you end up with dissatisfied customers.

There were posts on the Women for Tri FB Page from a number of women who cancelled their sponsorship bc LTP treated them poorly (LTP didn’t deliver their kits) as well.

How can they put "Made in the USA" on their stuff if they send the orders for fulfillment to China? How do you know they are doing this? Seems like complete fraud to me if that's really what they are doing.

Sewing a Made in USA tag into a garment is pretty easy.

Its not on a tag -- Almost every one of their trisuits has "Made in the USA" emblazoned on the front of the chest under their logo.

The stuff is definitely made in Van Nuys. But I'd have to think with the huge backlog they probably have their seamstress probably make zilch and they're straight profit taking off the top.

Thank for this. I find it bothersome among the AG ranks.

Inside other industries these type amateur people who are “sponsored” or “ambassadors” are called “contract customers”. A much more fitting term.

Yet their stickers are still sold out and have been for over a year. I would actually buy one to put in my pain cave.

So is LTP really an apparel company? Or a multisport vanity project? Or is it just a brand building media exercise with the goal being "Insta-fame" and a massive worldwide IG brand following so the brand can be sold to a real apparel manufacturer?

This is a good observation.

Did anyone notice that LTP now provides no time line for production/delivery? Instead, at checkout, you have to read and agree to this, “I am aware Love The Pain, Inc. makes items to order and that timelines will vary depending on season and other factors.”.
So, maybe all the credit card chargebacks (including mine) are being felt by LTP. Maybe, but instead of addressing the problem, LTP is doubling down and basically saying, “you’ll get it when you get it.” Crap customer service. SMH.

Yeah they couldn’t even get kits to their own “team” before the season was already over apparently. Glad to see Eric Lagerstrom’s partnership with Castelli today. Hopefully he separated himself from LTP

Anybody willing to throw away $150 and see if they deliver quickly?

I moved on. I'm on the Wattie Ink Hit Squad and patiently waiting on my team kit shipment. Wish I'd just purchased the Stars and Skulls kit originally instead of that American Eagle kit in the bottom right.

 And hold I wouldn’t no way call them Insta fame. Lol I would not even consider Jan Insta fame. A real accont that’s popular is 1million + followers. There 35k Account would not push anything.

Why would they? I think they are saying the sale is only for 24 hours, not that you will get your product any faster.

I'm personally holding out for another run of suits that say "Gus" on them. I heard the TAT on those is quick. At least for their Insta influencers.

Support the fight against apostrophe abuse! Is it a contraction? Is it a possessive? If neither, you probably shouldn't use an apostrophe.

f*&^, wish I did my research or found this thread...can we sticky this PSA?

I placed an order a week ago only to find out when I checked the order status that they say 4-6 weeks. I'll try to call/email them and if I don't hear back I will open a dispute and shop elsewhere. Had I known the lead times up front I wouldn't have bought anything.

Reality is even worse: 4 to 6 months.

I would love to see it stickied, doubt it will happen though. Screw these guys, what a disgrace

What a disappointment to see that the same issues continue to persist with this company. I have some friends who wear LTP gear, but from an outsider’s perspective, it sure seems that they are more focused on keeping their “influencers” happy with new gear than taking care of the normal consumer.

Personally, the brand just doesn’t appeal to me. I hate gimicky phrases, upside-down use of the word ‘rad,’ and some of the designs put me into seizure mode.

Finally, let’s agree that our collective diction - specifically the use of words like pain, suffer, wattage, and Brick just make us sound like assholes and destroy relationships. I’ve personally had 4 women break up with me because I forced them to look at my TP data on Friday nights with a glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape...

So, I just can’t get behind a brand that is called “Love The Pain” and whose influencers brag about embracing the suffering while spinning at 100 watts for 4 hours.

Time for me to pop some Benzos. Sorry.
