Post Office Has Can't-Miss Idea for Making Itself Profitable: Official Post Office Fashion Wear

Wait, what? I thought you said something like "people will pay for the privilege to be mistaken for postal workers" but you obviously couldn't have said that.

You must have said something like "We're going to reduce costs for uniforms by contracting them out to a private maker" or something.

Right?

No?

You did say you were going to sell a line of official Post Office fashion?

No seriously, what did you say? I can't hear sometimes.

First the end of Saturday mail, now a new clothing line. The U.S. Postal Service is taking unprecedented steps to make itself relevant and profitable these days.

Oh, you wuz serious?

The cash-strapped agency announced plans on Tuesday to launch a new line of all-weather apparel and accessories sometime next year.

...

The Postal Service chose “Rain Heat & Snow” as its own brand name...

Only men’s apparel and accessories will be available initially, but the agency plans to add a women’s line in the future, it said Tuesday.

That's crazy, delaying the women's line. I expect that women will demand these articles equally as strongly as men.

“This agreement will put the Postal Service on the cutting edge of functional fashion,” agency licensing manager Steven Mills said in a statement. “The main focus will be to produce Rain Heat & Snow apparel and accessories using technology to create ‘smart apparel’ — also known as wearable electronics.”

Betts said the Postal Service plans to sell its apparel and accessories in premium department stores and specialty stores...

This is not going to happen.

This whole plan is, like many plans, a list of things that aren't going to happen.

The Postal Service decided to launch a clothing line as a way to promote and strengthen its brand, as well as to generate money, according to Betts.

I predict this will "generate" as much "money" as the AoS t-shirt bonanza.

58 You all do realize that even after the postmaster's begging and pleading to cut saturday deliver, they still deliver on saturdays?

That's because the Congress makes the rules AND the Unions make the rules. The postmaster's just there to show up for congressional committee meetings n' stuff.

They also will still deliver packages. Why? Amazon. that's why.

3 deliveries a day and a law that tells any company that doesn't allow online bill payment to either do so or adapt their billing schedule and grace periods to compensate for the 3 day delivery of the USPS.

However, that still won't make the post office solvent because they have a mandated retirement fund schedule that they can't change and they still have Union contract rules about hiring and firing and will have to buy off redundant employees.

And they have to get approval from Congress for post office branch closings.

145 The real problem is the damn veterans preference. They all get 5 points on the test, 10 if disabled, and to fire a veteran you have to go through the preference board. Damn cocky bastards can do any damn thing they want all day, and not a damn thing you can do about it. And they have more veterans than any other employer. Damn veterans. It's like the Old Soldiers Home.

And the active reservists, with their call-ups and their training leave. It all goes right on your tax bill, the one that pays for the stamps.

219 @148 rickl, Postal Service is the side project of Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie. It is shit-hot in the 24-30 demographic. You're expected not to know.

USPS had clothing lines twice before, not just once as cited in the article. The second time was in the 90's. That was the catalog where they air-brushed out the cigarette of leatherclad airmail pilot Wild Bill Hopson. Um, member?
http://tinyurl.com/acobrsb

It made money too, and was also shut down by objections from lobbyists from the boutique shop industry. We really take care of our boutique shops in out country.

Everybody reading the fine print there? They sold clothes twice, made money on it twice, and got legislated out of the business twice. Please go on with the slow-mail jokes.

The Left uses nasty names to draw hate. let go of the hate and Conservatives will win elections. Preach love and brotherhood to unite the people!


Yeah well, as you well know, us conservatives are simple-minded, cousin-humping, mouth-breathing, knuckle-daggers who, in most cases are the first generation of our families to walk uptight. As such, we are visual learners (being illiterate and all) so we need visual examples of how to behave.

Those lessons can only come from our moral betters, the virtuous Americn political left. They should get started.

232 Actually sub, no. I casual carried two summers and worked there one other. The vets were not the problem. It was the eeo hires of the female persuasion that I got tired of being held back by. Pass my test before them but they got moved up because they couldn't handle the dock work. Then one night they called mandatory overtime and I said no. Early morning appointment. Can't work till 3am. They said I had to.
I said really? Bye.

Hey Teej! Hope all is well with you!

Jewell, sorry to hear about the explosion in KC. Years ago, I went to KC for a nursing conference. We got to tour the Hallmark factory. I had the best red meat I've ever eaten in my life there, including the best bbq I've ever had. I had BBQ in both Kansas and Missouri. (At little hole in the wall places).I took home bottles of Gates BBQ sauce in my carry on (now Homeland Security would disallow that!)

236 So teej says it's the women. And the mandatory overtime for new hires.
It's sure good private industry doesn't have those inefficiencies.

Being that they said the line will be available in high end department stores, I'm going to have to say it was either Diane Von Furstenburg (remember how wigged out she got over Ann Romney wearing one of her dresses?) or Anna Wintour.

241 I don't know what happened to my AoS t-shirt. It really pisses me off that I can't find it. I suspect foul play.

In the time since the t-shirt bonanza, however, Cafe Press and about eight thousand companies just like it have been started. There's no good reason that a line of shirts couldn't be offered for sale, in a print-on-demand sort of way.

They could be sold right alongside the Rejected Candy Hearts, for example.

These are million-dollar ideas I'm throwing out here.

242 Ace,

If you have any more shirts left, I'll buy five to use as undershirts. Like the guy in the MTV or whatever ad.

Open scene - random corporate office - view from behind the receptionist, a large male.

The elevator opens, stupid chime rings, and a tool in a suit walks up to the reception desk.

Innocuous conversation about where tool should go ensues.

Finally, the receptionist leans forward to stamp a chit or something, and we see revealed below his staid corporate white shirt the print on the undershirt: _METALLICA_.

"We know who we are."

end scene.

245 I noticed one of their innovative cost cutting ideas today. They changed the name of delivery confirmation to delivery tracking. Or vice versa, I didn't care enough to remember the details. Because nothing says cost cutting like having to change all your printed matter from one saying to another.

246 "the postal employees at our branch don't even wear postal attire....."

Ours either. Of course our town is under 500 people and half of them are divided between the two nursing homes, which makes for speedy deliveries.

"Good call, I totally forgot that guy was a conservative. Never see him anymore. Ratzenberger?"

Yes, John. He had a show where he traveled around and highlighted great American stuff. Not sure if it's still on.

248 This is straight question don't know answer to. Why was the post office forced to prefund the pensions for 75 years. People that read the article take that question away.

I really don't know the answer. There had to have been a reason.

As far as it goes I don't care about Sat. delivery. I think the Post Office is important but I could easily make due with delivery 3 or even 2 days a week. Out of the garbage bags of mail I got in the last 6 months only one envelope (with my updated drivers license) had anything in it I even read.

That still doesn't change my curiosity about why the prefunding bill was passed.

250 "This agreement will put the Postal Service on the cutting edge of functional fashion" "'smart apparel’ — also known as wearable electronics.”. Clothes with electronic gadgetry in them? Wow! Maybe there will be one with a fax machine, or a pong game! Or maybe a calculator!
