Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Enough about that though, I basically just want to say that we're going to open it up again to some SW&D guys, so the first 50 people to email me at kyle@nomanwalksalone.com will be added to the Founders Circle and be eligible for these and all future discounts, private sales, etc.  (I'm serious about the 50 though, I don't have the patience to add everyone that emails lol)



And for my own personal pleasure, some examples of stuff on the site that I think are worth checking out aka things I want to buy for myself:

Oliver Spencer (Click to show) Big John (Click to show) SasquatchFABRIX EO TO TO (Click to show) Niche. (Click to show)
Ok I could keep going on with this, so I'll let you explore if you want, but mostly I just feel bad that the SW&D crew missed out on that option to have that sort of insider access to deals, especially now that we're picking up a lot more brands we like over here going forward.  Don't want to let all of the MC guys hog the discounts.



While the sale prices are awesome, I think you're quoting prices here that are 10% under the current sale price, unless I'm missing an additional discount code or something.

black bottoms in cotton will never look right on me.

I tried those Billy Reid black moleskin pants, which are nice and feel really warm, but I get an odd break in the knees. Forever wool trousers that drape effortlessly.

the only thing that I can think of to alleviate this issue is the cut of the bottom i.e. expensive anatomical or j pants by artisans

Agreed, I must have checked those Buttero sidezips in all the sizes like 3x

I've realized this too, if you're referring strictly to trousers and not denim. Cotton trousers stack so weirdly and unflatteringly on my body, probably because of my stubby legs and bigger thighs

Is there an economic reason that some boutiques have cumbersome digital storefronts? 

 

I'm talking about lack of search functions, not showing when something is sold out, etc.

Greg's said before that the reason why the items load slowly on his particular site is because he had to make a choice between items loading slowly and not having as many detailed pictures due to host server limitations. Naturally if NMWA does really well, he'll invest in more expensive server solutions.

A lot of the "old school" or "mom and pop" type shops simply don't see the value in a competently designed websites. The worst are the overdesigned ones.

imo any store that uses flash is the fucking worst. lookin' @u LVR. Apart from the music player colette is pretty awful too.

There was that one guy who was selling pretty high end stuff and kept posting his website on here. Crovure or something. That site was painful.

Cruvoir?

 

Yeah never really understood the whole having to register to browse thing

post #90999 of 109053
i inquired about an item from cruvoir (they didn't list a price.. made you email them) and they signed me up to their mailing list. the unsubscribe link is just a reply link.

They get your email address so it's easy to send you product updates.

Email still outperforms most other online marketing channels, figure I always remember is $40 revenue for every dollar invested.

A shame the OS navy knit is sold out at OS in Europe, as it will be too expensive with shipping from the us.

I don't get the home & tech part of Mr Porter, why would anyone buy headphones, speakers etc. and a 10k watch of a fashion site?
post #91003 of 109053
Good service and customer support? Why wouldn't they buy those things from Mr P?
post #91004 of 109053
You should hear a speaker / headphones before buying and any decent watch dealer, will give you a good discount if you ask.

FINALLY someone decided to put me on a nationwide late night talkshow as a regular. Just signed on for 26 episodes of what is sure to be stellar TV (just kidding, the show is terrible). I'm just doing this to get out of the house, but are all actors paid this low? Making less than when I was an intern in University
