I know. Never saw Star Trek as a kid. The intent is correct even if the exact wording is not.
The comments section of every website ever will make you want to renounce your humanity. Star Trek nerds, what's that saying about the bar, "A more wretched hive of scum and villainy you'll not find." That's the internet.
Anyone size up on the Mercer? If I'm 6, 170 and workout, debating between M and L. Hate stuff that fits too tight. I'm a M in the crew neck
Related to LA Guy's point about commerce and kopping threads, it was interesting to read in Vanity Fair's "100 best dressed list" (or similar title) how many of the male celebrities listed Mr Porter as their favorite store. That's your customer: The people who aren't price sensitive and want the ease of purchasing that MrP offers.

Discussion is easy - see Facebook and Twitter for two examples, one real time the other more reactive. The pieces are already in existence just need to be glued together...like most things tech.

They're hobbyists/nerds. They argue about random esoteric shit to make it interesting. It's like the star wars nerds arguing about whether a star destroyer can blow up the star trek enterprise in one shot. Or whether Dr Spock can defeat Moth Tarkin with a 2" light saber. Same idea, different vocabulary.
Bottom half needs a different top half
