Calling all COKANNA fans. Would you like to be a COKANNA Kanbassador/tester? Raise your hand if you’re in.
I’m looking for 2 brand ambassadors to test a new design before it goes into production. What exactly does that mean? Read on.
For this first-time round, I’m looking for a Size 1(S) and Size 2(M). I sample in different sizes so don’t worry, it won’t always be these 2 sizes going forward.
I have a new style of pant that has the same wide comfy waistband as the Lynne legging. It’s in a charcoal grey mix and it has phone pockets.
You’ll get a sample pair of this new style in Size 1 or 2 to put through rigorous testing, and then they’re yours to keep.
Here’s a close up view of the front, side, and back of the pant.
In case you don’t already know your size, here’s the size chart in inches:
Your mission should you choose to accept it: To wear the pants as much as possible, every day if you can. Wear them for all your activities from lounging, to working out, to going for walks, to working from home…you get the idea. Wash them as many times as you need. It’s recommended to machine wash in cold water and hang to dry. But, I would like you to put them in the dryer too, on low, to test shrinkage.
Report back to me at email@example.com or 613-863-8893 in one week’s time and tell me what you think. And be honest. Now’s the time to make changes before it goes into production.
What I need to know
Here are the specific things I would like to know:
- Is the waistband a comfortable width? Would you like it wider? Or narrower?
- Are the legs a good fit? Would you prefer a tighter fit? Or looser?
- How’s the size of the phone pocket? Does it fit your phone?
- How do they wash? Any shrinkage in the dryer?
Of course, any other feedback you have is welcome too, good or bad. I value your input. It’s how I continually improve my designs. My clothes are meant for you. Not the other way round.
As a Kanbassador, you commit to:
- Trying and hopefully loving my clothes if you aren’t already a fan
- Taking photos of yourself wearing the pants
- Agreeing to your photos being posted on my social media accounts and website
- Being a brand ambassador and spreading the word. Word-of-mouth buzz is the best way to create awareness for a Canadian woman-owned small business.

I’m interested Colleen!
Hi Nancy, Thanks so much for your interest! I believe you’re a size 2, correct? I had another customer from Quebec as well, reach out to me as soon as the newsletter was published, about 5 min before you did, and she has claimed the Size 2. Let me know if I’m incorrect. Otherwise stay tuned for the next one.
Sure, I’d love to test wear those new pants. They look super comfy.
Hi Sandie, Thanks for your reply. I believe you would be a Size 2. Is that correct? Size 2 is popular so it’s already been claimed by a customer but watch out for another opportunity.
I would absolutely love to be an ambassador and test these pants. I have a size 2 of the Lynn pants, which I love, although I do miss have a pocket at times.
Hello Merle, Nice to hear from you. Unfortunately, the Size 2 is a popular size so it’s already been claimed by another customer. Keep an eye out for another Kanbassador opportunity and for the pre-sale of the new phone pocket pant.
I’d be happy to when you’re on size 3 testing.
Thanks so much, Heidi! Make sure you’re on my Keeping Abreast mailing list so you know when Size 3 opportunities come up. It will be on a first come basis.
I’m definitely interested.
I’ll have to make note of the sizes of all your pieces I currently own.
Hi Giselle, Thanks so much for your interest. I know you’re on my mailing list so keep you’re eye out for when your size comes up for testing!
Hi Colleen – I would be really interested if you want to test drive Size 3 or 4!
Denise, thanks for your interest! As long as you’re on my Keeping Abreast subscriber list, which I believe you are, you’ll be informed of when a new design is being tested in your size.
