FCUK Slogan T-shirts

76FYL_GRY_WMNS-xlarge_trans++1N-0BbrGahnullJmqzE3f2q_JiyI1FNn7h4k342D2pAWe’ve always loved slogan t-shirts here at Clothes2order and it’s great to hear that French Connection is bringing back their FCUK branding which was all the trend in the 90’s.

The CEO of French Connection, Stephen Marks, has said that ‘‘Our Spring Summer advertising campaign pays homage to the 90’s. We feel that this season is the right time to re-introduce FCUK as a celebration of our brand heritage.”

French Connection used the branding “fcuk” in their adverts from around 1991. Apparently the first use of the initials was on faxes which were sent between Hong Kong and London offices, headed “FCHK to FCUK” (they weren’t intended to be rude).

Of course the four letters could be mistaken for another word and French Connection took advantage of the fuss that it caused, producing t-shirts with messages such as “fcuk fashion”, “hot as fcuk”, “too busy to fcuk” etc.

Fun Facts about Frankenstein

With Halloween just around the corner, we couldn’t imagine this time of year without Frankenstein lurking somewhere in the darkness. We’ve put together some quick and interesting facts about the story, the character, and the author:
Frankenstein– The novel resulted from a competition between Mary, her future husband Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron and the writer John Polidori to see who could write the best horror story. They were on a vacation in Switzerland when they were stuck inside due to the weather. Lord Byron suggested a proposed a contest to see who could write the best supernatural story. Mary won the contest – she was only 19!

– It’s said that the plot came to Mary Shelley in a dream about a scientist who created life.

– The first edition was published anonymously in 1818. A play in 1823 made the story popular and the book appeared in print again in 1831, but with significant changes including credit­ing Mary Shelley with the authorship. She went on to write several more books, her favourite was ‘The Last Man’, an apocalyptic sci-fi novel.

– Google posts that National Frankenstein Day is on October 29th. But Frankenstein Day is on August 30th in honour of author Mary Shelley who was born on August 30,1797.

– Frankenstein’s monster is given no name in the book but referred to only as ‘creature’, ‘monster’, ‘fiend’, ‘wretch’, ‘vile insect’, ‘demon’, ‘being’, or ‘it’. Frankenstein is actually the film’s protagonist and monster’s creator, mad scientist Doctor Victor Frankenstein.
Mary Shelley said the name of Frankenstein came in her dream but in Germany there is a Castle Frankenstein, which she may have visited.

– Frankenstein has inspired more than 130 films, starting with the silent Frankenstein in 1910.

– Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee has said that the Incredible Hulk was inspired partly by the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde story — and Frankenstein. “Why not combine the characters?” Lee said in an interview on his website.

The Art of Great Customer Service


What Customer Service Means to us

Customer Experience Means Everything to Us

It’s National Customer Service Week starting on Monday, so we talked to the Clothes2order customer service team about why they believe it is important to deliver an exceptional customer experience.

For us, it’s all about the customer experience and delivering a service that goes beyond what is expected. Customer focus is one of our core values, so this service extends far beyond the customer service team.

Meet the Customer Services Team

Meet the people who deliver our customer service day in, day out. If you ever call or email, here’s who you could be speaking to:

Customer-Service-Team

We wanted to find out what delivering an exceptional customer experience means to them.

Charlotte, Customer Services Team Member

“For me, customer service means that I can go home each day with a smile on my face knowing I’ve gone the extra mile for the customer, especially when they are on deadline and we manage to pull a few strings for them, so they receive their order on time!”

Alicia, Customer Services Team Member

“I think customer service is being there for the customer and being able to help them when placing an order, any queries they may have and resolving any issues that may have occurred.”

Holly, Customer Services Team Member

“Customer service means putting yourself in the customers’ shoes and providing a service to make sure that they are satisfied at all costs. It also means being patient and never giving up.”

Ashleigh, Customer Services Team Member

“I love being able to make a customer happy by helping them out when they need advice.”

Everybody agreed customer service makes their day when they receive thanks from customers.
‘It’s nice that to have recognition that you’ve gone the extra mil, and the customers go out of their way to write a good review/thank you for you’, ‘it makes us feel like what we do is worthwhile and appreciated for the time and effort we have taken to help them out.’
treat your staff well

“Customer service can make or break a business. If you treat your staff well, they will be happy. Happy staff are proud staff, and proud staff deliver excellent customer service, which drives business success”

We believe that happy people at work make happy customers. We look after and take pride in our employees which shines through in the service we deliver to our customers.
