Hi Atlanta United FC! It’s so great to see you. Welcome to Atlanta, where the players play, hahaha ha ha. Yeah.
Anyway, I’m a soccer fan. And a Founders Club member. And I’m a woman. And I wear clothing. I know this seems kind of dull so far but just bare with me.
HA HAAAAA get it? BARE with me!
Ok, so I’m a soccer fan and a Founders Club member and female and I wear clothing. And when I wear clothing – which is a lot – I like to wear clothing that fits. Not clothing that is baggy around the shoulders because it’s made for a man, or a wee bit narrow at the waist because it’s made for a man, or too tight around the chest because it’s made for a man. I like to wear clothing that is made for women.
Why don’t you have any clothing made for women in your online store?
And by “clothing made for women” I don’t mean pink. Or studded with rhinestones. Or pink and studded with rhinestones. I mean clothing that’s more narrow in the shoulders (with cap sleeves!), flares at the waist and has a little extra room in the chest.
Here’s an example of what I mean:
Men’s shirt – Women’s shirt
Here is an example of what I don’t mean:
Men’s shirt – Women’s… what IS that?
Now look, I’m not saying don’t ever make cutesy low cut shirts for women. I’m saying make shirts for women. At all. Today. So, for example, when all those women at the tonight’s launch event finally made it through the long, long merch line, they could actually buy a shirt not fitted for a man if they preferred. It’s pretty Ludacris you don’t have any.
After all, unity is one of the five pillars in the new logo, right? And the gold circle is a symbol of unity? “United” is in the name, but I’m not feeling very unitedy. I’m feeling left out. Unimportant. Definitely not part of the (Founder’s) club.
So I hope you’ll hurry up and get some women’s-fit clothing in the store. Heck, go talk to Ann Rodriguez, your female Vice President of Business Operations. Ask her about her clothes. I bet she wears them. And they’re not bought at Men’s Warehouse. I guarantee it.
I’ve got my season tickets (deposit). You’ve got a sweet new logo that I’d love to wear around town. All I ask is for some clothes that fit. C’mon, Atlanta United…
