I ran into Suzie Lemoine today at the Home Depot in Kenner, Louisiana. I overheard her talking with a customer about bee suits and inquired if she was speaking of Golden Bee suits.
Suzie is the daughter of Phil & Noelie Lemoine, who invented the suit. I had heard that the old man had died but it was in fact Mrs. Lemoine who has passed.
Suzie is carrying on with the business end of production. The new phone# is 504-456-8805. For those who are unaware of their suits they are the finest around, albeit a little costly, but you get what you pay for, this is fact.
Suzie and I spoke and I was able to give her some honest feedback about the suit. She was very receptive. My only complaint really is with the gloves that come with the suit, and she said she wanted ideas as they were looking to make changes to the gloves, anyway.
Anyway, if you are interested in a full suit that is about as sting proof as any suit you could ever find, look into getting one. They are also vented by design to allow breeze into the suit, which is great on hot days.
Oh, and to John and all the mods of this site. I hope it was ok to make this post. I just thought people would like the info and update. I'm not trying to endorse anything here, even though I do own one of the suits, just thought people would like to know. Let me know if it was ok to make this post, if not I'll know for next time. Thanks.
