The scaling to mass production has revealed some quality issues that have delayed our first production batch. We had to do some rework to ensure a quality finished product on every Bucqle.
Two steps forward, one step back ... It looks like the first batch will finally be a reality in December 2022. As we speak, we have a test shipment incoming, with an ETA of the end of November 2022. This batch will be thoroughly inspected for quality issues and distributed amongst customers in The Netherlands, testing the setup of our fulfilment house.
As mentioned, the first batch will ship to the webshop orders placed in 2020 and 2021. The remaining units will be sold to new customers. This will allow us to invest in the second batch, of which some will be used to deliver the first crowdfunding orders, fulfilling the oldest first.
We are excited to finally receive the first mass-produced Bucqles physically in The Netherlands soon. We cannot wait to share the final design with you guys and show you picture proof of the journey these Bucqles are about to make into customers’ hands.
New sales mean the first steps into the future of Bucqle. We are over the moon; the dark years will hopefully end soon. Although, there is a new world out there in the meantime.
We will keep you posted on the next steps soon!
Don't worry! We will send you a link to confirm or change your address before we send out your pre-order.
No, besides the fact that in most cases your underwear will be between your body and Bucqle, Bucqle is covered by a rubber layer and has curvy edges.
No, your Bucqle won't slip off unless you pull.
No, your Bucqle can't slide open after locking your fit. This is due to the rubber studs on the inside of your Bucqle that continuously put pressure on your waistband.
No, you don't need a Bucqle for the other side too.
Bucqle pulls for 50% on the backside and 50% on the front side of your pants, meaning your pants might slightly move, which is hardly noticeable.
We advise to combine Bucqle with your right pocket, since the fold would not be that obvious. If you do not have pockets, Bucqle is made for the right side of your pants/skirts, but can be placed anywhere you like.
While your belt bulks the fabric when tightening your pants, the Bucqle neatly folds. The thicker and the more stiff your fabric is, the harder it is for Bucqle to create that neat fold. We ourselves use Bucqle on our jeans daily, however some jeans are not ideal. It is definitely not no, but neither a 100% yes :)
Bucqle can infinitely tighten the waistband of your pants and skirts up to 50mm. This means all the steps between 0 and 50 are there to offer you a true perfect fit by the mm :)
We decided to move the contribution to Europe, since the amount before paying tax is lower in EU than in most other continents. Therefore, we can apply friendly shipping to almost everyone :)
