Most custom clothing manufacturers have minimum order policies based on garment type and gender. That means you need to order 5 men’s jerseys and 5 women’s jersey, otherwise run the risk of being hit with a surcharge for missing minimums.
But, what if your team or club is comprised of 5 men and 2 women?
You’re going to have to either buy 5 men’s jerseys and 5 women’s jerseys to meet the minimums, or 7 men’s jerseys and have your female riders in men’s clothing.
We think that’s ridiculous!
Not only do we offer a low 5-piece minimum for individual custom garments (some of our competitors require 10 or even 20!), but we will waive the second gender minimum as long as one gender minimum is met.
This policy means gender specific garments that are identical in description (e.g. Men’s and Women’s Ascent Jersey) will be considered to have met minimum quantity requirements when either the men’s or women’s versions are met independently.
Here’s some clarification examples:
Pactimo is thrilled to offer the one gender minimum policy, as it continues to show our dedication to smaller or diverse teams and clubs, and to women’s cycling as a whole.
We are one of the few custom clothing manufacturers with such a wide selection of women-specific cycling apparel. From jackets to jerseys and shorts to bibs, we believe women athletes shouldn’t have to wear men’s clothing when training, racing or logging miles on their bike.
