I think the photo in the sale ad is odd. They look fun.
Her: I can't believe you spent all that money on matching jackets. You're such a tool.
Him: I'm sorry, I thought it would look good on you and I thought it was 50% off. Hey come on, don't be like that.

Season? Lotus never had a season, poll the people on here and you can pretty much summarize the Lotus store sales for the year, BTW Are these garments made by Hennessy?

Season as in winter/fall collection.

Maybe the Lotus rep at the LA auto show was right when he said Elise owners are cheap.

She's just sad Danny's gone
Some might be tools for paying the $$$ for the jackets but she just wanted Danny's tool.

Her: I'm so bummed Kimi is not coming to the Christmas party.
Him: Yes dear, but on a brighter note Romain is over there holding a sprig of mistletoe over his head.

The irony...
Apparently my wife purchased a hat and t-shirt on-sale back at the beginning of Dec. for me for xmas. After many rounds with customs, paperwork, emails to the lotus originals customer service, we still have not received goods. Plus, it looks like FedEx is now going to ship back the items as they didn't have proper documentation from lotus originals.
More fuel on the fire...

Sounds kinda like a typical Lotus story doesn't it?

you know that the entire world can buy these products also and probably not so difficult to get delivered to those countries. Especially Europe.

I wish the jacket was "Racing Leather Jacket" was semi-affordable. Even at the current sale price of $1098, I'd never buy it even if I had millions.

I wonder what the cost to manufacture is. Maybe that would make me feel better about the price, but I doubt it's going to be in the $350+ range.

Ah, the difference between Lotus owners and the Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche... crowd.

iirc, Hackett London used to be the clothing line manufacturer... at least for 2010...

Hackett London Becomes Official Clothing Partner to Lotus Racing | Facebook

they are a high end brand so the crazy pricing makes sense i suppose... but i don't know if they still do the clothing for lotus or what lines they specify in if any...

i do know that my lotus f1 jacket from this past season isn't Hackett... although that may not mean Lotus doesn't still have a specific lines that runs through the Hackett manufacturer

Order Received & Review

Well my order came in on Friday...7 weeks or so it took to get.

My wife actually bought, 2 hats, 2 t-shirts and 2 zip up sweatshirts. Quality of hats are what you would typically expect. The t-shirts, women's lotus is a nice velour logo but the men's rubberized lotus was slightly crooked and the sizing for a large was like a medium. The jackets overall look nice but the zipper is plastic with a metal pull. Kinda cheap...the fit is box shoulders with tapered waist. It was a large and a good fit but not spoken to in the product detail as being slim fit.

Overall, customer service of Lotus Originals SUCKED and quality of product to price was not even close to being decent. Lotus Originals didn't provide shipping information to the customer or to FedEx. FedEx actually was all over this in trying to get the package to us but they were unable to get a hold of Lotus who should have sent the proper information to start with. I tried contacting LO multiple times and didn't hear anything until my tone changed. Then I was assured it would be sent but again no shipping information. The funny part is I had sent a note to LO and that same day I received the order and it's the attached picture. After picking up the order I got a response with tracking information and it was from Dec. and out dated. Flat out they don't have their @#it together.

No, I quite like the differences between the typical Lotus owner and the typical Ferrari owner.
