michael ball responds!

after months and months of harassment, i finally got a response from the ballster!
Dear Beth,

Sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your inquiry regarding Keirin Cut jeans. I tried to ignore it, but between the dozens of hysterical emails you sent, my PR manager Sean Weide's convincing, seeing that "Keirin Cut" spray paint on the ToC route, and all of the other people who keep bugging me about it, I decided to look into your idea.

As you know, the economic crisis has hit the designer jean market, and R&R is starting a less expensive line ($80-100/pair) and I am considering including your Keirin Cut in this. I realize your market research with "athletic girls" has been highly atecodotal. My team is following up on this.

I would like to talk to you further about this idea. A phone conversation would be in order first, and depending on what me and my team decide, it would be best to meet at my office in LA to do some brainstorming with my creative team, although I think you have all the creativity you need on this one.

Thanks for your persistence and we'll see what happens with this.

With regards and 57cm,

Michael
there we have it! i'll keep you posted!!!!

Sweet! Good luck with that. Maybe I should start bugging him to do some climber cut jeans.

Awesome, Beth! And I'm pretty sure that's direct from Ball and not a PR flack -- too many typos.

Do we need to start up a collection for LA airfare?

And Chris: there are already tons of skinny jeans out on the market!

starting with "sorry" and ending with "thanks" and "with regards," he sounds like a genuine down-to-earth guy, medication?
