Does it matter that my pants aren't made of imported petroleum, imported fabric, and imported clothing just as the "best" pants out there? Is it safe to say you need a pair of "Those" and a pair of Mine?
They go hand in hand.

THE MOST AWESOME PANTS EVER! I wanted to wait till I could include an amazing picture but I simply cannot let another day pass without expressing my LOVE for these amazing custom pants. I expressed my deep love for Billie Holiday, the song "Blue Moon", and my love of a big beautiful full moon...I received....A WORK OF ART! SO BEAUTIFUL! I got what I asked for and more! The musical notes of "Blue Moon"! Gorgeous pictures of Billie that look like a painting! Billie Holiday would be so proud! I teach yoga, I came up with special sequences to Billie's rendition of Blue Moon....wearing my magical pants of course...my students were overjoyed! I cannot rave enough about my pants! I give out their info to everyone I see. I recommend ordering another pair the minute you get your first!....the wait is a bit but SO WORTH IT!

About

Why Tristan Christopher chooses a cotton canvas.....

Women’s health is a crucial component of society. Providing quality information and training to promote better living, and making it easily accessible to everyday professional women and mothers is so rewarding. Receiving this gift is what spawned the motivation for Tristan Christopher to develop Gorgeous Women’s Fitness Center. After receiving his Bachelors in Science in Biochemistry, Tristan Christopher quickly realized the importance in incorporating the best of western science and eastern philosophy to build a more balanced approach to living more healthily. Designing nutritional plans and body sculpting routines was a technical passion, but Tristan soon recognized in order to remain mentally sound, he would have to express his creative side as well. Tristan wanted to produce mini quick works of art. In doing so, he knew he could get his instant gratification fix. He also wanted these works of art to make a statement and to be on a medium that could be viewed by many. Finally the light came on in his head, eureka, it’s T-shirts! Couture Tee was born.

PRODUCTION COST & ARTIST PAY TRANSPARENCY
( Wages factor in the worker's needed compensation for Life Benefits )

AVERAGE TEAM COMPENSATION
PROJECT MGR: 18-22 USD / HOUR - FULL TIME
LEAD ARTIST: 22-24 USD / HOUR - FULL TIME
ASSISTANT ARTIST: 15-20 USD / HOUR - FULL TIME SEASONAL
ADMINISTRATION: 12-15 USD / HOUR - PART TIME SEASONAL
Our cost of materials, supplies, facilities and equipment represents an average of 40-60% of our price. 85-90% of our net income is paid to the positions above including 14 paid vacation days / year. The remaining actual profit of 10%-15% is divided between an artist / company emergency fund and charity. The key to our success is the ability to scale up and down efficiently. This is only made possible by catering to clients that understand our artist policies and order arrival times. Its a pleasure serving you.

PLEASE REFRAIN FROM SENDING CONVOS FOR SHIPPING STATUS & UPDATES BEFORE YOUR SHIP DATE, WE GUARANTEE YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR ITEMS. This delays us big time by shifting our focus to the computer and away from our art studio making your pants.
Expect to receive your package 2-4 days after your ship date located on your receipt page in the upper right corner, or by scrolling down to the map below. We will remain in contact with you via email insuring the delivery of each and every item. You will receive a TRACKING NUMBER once your item(s) are shipped. All of our items are custom handmade to order.

* Given the nature of making made to order, one of a kind wearable art pieces at such high volumes, DELAYS DO OCCUR. We are unable to RUSH orders for any reason, and will in no way be held responsible for meeting specific ETA's. In the event of any delays on your order, we will be sure to contact you and most often reward you for your patience:) 9.8 out of 10 customers are ecstatic about their purchase once they slip into them and strut around town in them.
Custom orders are often made or painted by hand. These orders may take up to 6-8 days to create given cure & art prep times. It's not uncommon for us to make more than one attempt creating your pants.

Refunds and Exchanges
We hope that you appreciate the unique piece we made for you by loving the subtle variations and embracing the idea that each piece is literally made one at a time by a single artist or designer. Knowing that the art you are wearing had a lot of love and energy put into it. Realizing that if one of your first thoughts was for instance, "This green is not forest green its more jade" or "I don't like where this picture is on my butt" or "Not so sure if I can wear these loud puppies" if your thoughts revolve around design choices, wear them anyway around as you would. You will be surprised on how 5-10 compliments a day (no joke!) on your pants will change some of the "fickle" thoughts I know I get. Trust our work, we wouldn't send anything we didn't love, or wouldn't wear with pride, ourselves. Sometimes it just takes a friend or family to tell ya how awesome they look.

If in fact the pants don't grow on ya, we will gladly issue you a store credit or exchange. Please remember to approach your critiques and reasons for return or dislike as if you were speaking to an artist, a person, a soul who cares and is attached to their work. Be kind, even if you are disappointed, remember we share the same vibe with you, we love our art and when someone else doesn't, well, it's grey clouds for us too!

Thanks for being the outstanding customers we love and work for. We save our time for you and you only!

So, So much Gratitude,
TC
