FIT is KING: find and list all SHOEs, SUITs, and SPORTCOATs in SF  

post #1 of 168
Thread Starter 
Connecting Buyers an Sellers The Right Way
Update #1 (6/2/2011): Introduction B&S is wonderful. But it is also a pain sometimes, isn't it? For buyers:
  • Can't find your item since short queries (like "9D", "EG", "40S", etc.,) are not allowed?
  • Even if you find a sale thread that has your item, the item is sold out already?
  • Didn't log in SF for a couple of days, and now you're lost among hundreds of new sale threads?
  • Not sure how a suit/jacket fit you since no measurement is provided, and tag size is useless?
  • ...
For sellers:
  • Have to find a strategic time to list your item so that it has the highest exposure on the front page?
  • After dropping off from the front page, your item is now viewed by less than a dozen a day?
  • Can't price drop to bump anymore since it's rock bottom already?
  • ...
What do I have to offer? I have been on both sides of the isles and experienced both. And so, I have developed this to help everyone. It's a website that categories all shoes, suits and jackets in a way that can be browsed: Other categories maybe added later, but for now, just shoes, suits and jacket. The site is quite self-explanatory, but this is the main idea: Buyers: Go to the site FIT is KING, and you can browse for your items. Sellers: If you are listing shoes, suits or jackets here in B&S, go to the site, add your listing there, and it will be viewed by many. A Couple of Things to be Noted
  • This is a non-profit/personal-project website that exclusively serves StyleForum members. Funding is currently from my own pocket. It's my way of thanking the community. I hope that people find it useful.
  • To keep everything up to speed, I have taken my own liberty to submit a lot of links to our B&S forum. But sellers, start posting your listing. If I see any duplication, I will remove my listing.
  • The development of this site will be determined by SF members, give me feedback, I DO look into them, it may takes time to implement, since this is outside of my main job.
  • It's in the very early stage, so there will be flaws. Again let me know if you see any flaw, would be really appreciated.

Wow! That is very useful. Since you're not going to start selling ad space or otherwise monetizing it, hopefully the powers that be will approve.

fan-fucking-tastic! I tried to do something similar with Yahoo pipes recently but eventually gave up. How did you do it?

This is AMAZING. So much easier to search with than vB's own search function. Thank you onix! And thanks for already including the RLPL suit I'm currently selling! Mods: please, please sticky! Suggestion: include the ability to add/search by the tagged size to the database (at least for NWT items, but I think it's fair to add it to all listings), so buyers can search with that, if they know their size in the brand. EDIT - I see from your own edit that you'll consider this in the next release; thanks! I also agree with those suggesting you post your paypal address or set up a link to it on the fitisking site, so when we can send a small something your way by way of thanks, esp. when listing a new item.

Wow - great job - I'd be happy to foot the sticky costs for the first month if the mods approve...
Just send me a bill!

Can we just add this to one of the functions of SF, because buying stuff via looking through 30 threads where half the titles don't even say a size or color is really tiresome.

Awesome! FYI, The drop down boxes work but you're missing the "Sleeve Length" text.
post #12 of 168
Awesome! Thanks very much for this

suggestion: The gray space on the right of the screen (may not be formatted on other's screens this way) could be filled by a sample picture from the seller.

Another Suggestion: 25 result maximum per page

Edit- Third suggestion: Ties sorted by size, color, designer, and pattern type
