Inviting designers - Page 2

post #16 of 24
The fellow from Liste-Rouge might be interested as long as he can avoid what happened to the poor fellow at AskAndy. Of course that was a marc attack, too. I have been on a listserv that had an invited Celebrity Guest of the Week who agreed to take the time to answer moderated questions and then actually interact with threads as they saw fit. That could work here, I would think. It was amazing the "name" guys who agreed to do it. Someone was appointed to co-ordinate, but it went surprisingly well. I nominate Bruce Boyer as the first guest. (Yes, I know he's not a designer, but I love to read his stuff.)

The infamous Marc 39/Marc Grayson was a customer many years ago. (he is not Asian). He even gave me a thumbs up when I joined the forums. At the time he was a very well dressed and knowledgeable customer. Easy to deal with. He choose excellent fabrics. Though he seemed happy with my shirts he moved on to Other shirtmakers. The only thing i can think of, is his current shirtmaker must be making his collars too tight restricting the blood flow to his brain.

People are a lot better in person than they act over the Internet. I think it's because they're very well aware of getting punched in the face.

IMO, helpful criticisms are instrumental to improvement. And difference of opinions make for lively and often enducational discussions. At issue are the personal attacks and or insults levied for whatever reason. (note that I am not referring to the comical joking around or wit that is often seen, as eliminating this would certainly reduce the enjoyment of the forum) Classic

Why dont you guys tryMSN Dior Homme group I vist that forum frequently, and I belive that there is a few small designers and people in the fashion industry there.

That, and tone is often difficult to convey on forums like this, which can lead to escalating misunderstandings and flame wars.

I mean this is absolutely no offense to Mr. Kabbaz, but I think the infamous Marc39 did make some valid points in his criticisms-- they were not straight up "trolls" or "flames";
Agreed. You charge $600 for a friggin' shirt, and you'd better be ready to answer some tough questions. Make half your posts about your own business, and you'd better be ready to answer some really tough questions. Keep the designers/industry workers out. Who are they obviously going to support? The big problem with finding reliable reviews of clothing/gear/etc. is that anyone being reviewed has a firm grip on the balls of the reviewer. Keep the forum amateur.
