Not that I'm suggesting anything by the way, but they themsleves seem to be hardly on SF anymore, despite being affiliates. Do they have a website coming? A quick google of them shows only this thread, a review on put this on and a link to KW and that's it. A necessity to any small business is at the very least a website or some kind of blog that you can communicate with. Unless of course they are relying on the one income source (ie SF) for their business, which anyone who has ever run a business will know is a recipe for disaster. Anyone else know anything?

Why aren't you wondering to buy? confused.gif

These questions are for David, not for me - Im in no way attached to the business except I love the shoes and I repeatedly hand him my money. However, he is a very, very busy dude and Ive sent him over your request to get in touch.
post #544 of 811
No need for him to get in touch with me, just seems strange that guys like the above have to email and PM them and get no response at all. I know the costs of being an affiliate and it ain't that cheap, certainly not cheap enough to ignore potential clients.

Personally, being busy is no excuse, we're all busy and If you want to make your own money then that's the way it is. If your too busy to engage with your clients/potentials then why run the business. My point is, this industry like most these days is fickle and if you can't keep up, pretty soon people will look elsewhere (hello Carmina). It's just very strange is all.

And Fwiw I like the shoes, lasts and designs look nice. But I'm only likely to buy a few pair a year and in Carmina I've found a brand that fits all that I want in a shoe.

That's a strange statement. I don't think two to three emails equates to littered. I appreciate your input but I don't think it's very appropriate to state your opinions on what you think will work for someone else's business. I don't mind a private message with your "advice" but I find this a bit insulting
post #546 of 811
Regardless, I admittedly have been a little behind in my responses and to those who have been neglected, I do apologize. I have been extremely busy and when you go out of town for a week, things get backed up quickly.

To those of you that have asked questions that have not been answered, I will get to them as soon as I can. The main reason I haven't responded more quickly to some questions are because they are typically, do you have ____ model in _____ size. I was actually waiting for the shoes to arrive here before replying so that I would know what is available aside from the pre-orders. They are starting to trickle in now and I should have them all here and shipped (to those that pre-ordered) by the end of the next week. I certainly appreciate everyone's patience.

How do I explain the necessity to my wife? confused.gif

i find the best way to explain, is to have them shipped to the office and sneak them into the house.

I already do that.

The problem is, she found that mint website. She might notice $450/$500 being missing peepwall[1].gif

It's sad, but I have seriously thought about donating plasma to make money for my shoe/clothing buying habit, and I have trypanophobia laugh.gif (only sorta kidding)

I appreciate this post with approximate shipping dates, even though I'm not one of those who sent you an email. I'll try to post pictures once I get my shoes.

It seems to me that Charlie was simply reaching out to SF to see if anyone had better luck with contact.  As an owner of more than one small business, Charlie's critique of running a small business is dead-on, as displeasing as this may be to you.  You may want to consider a rather simple solution of an auto-email telling a prospective client what you outlined in response to Charlie...and that a more personal email is pending when shipments and time constraints are met.  It's better than silence.  Then, at least you won't have these guys chomping at the bit in a day or two when no email is received. 

 

You sound like an artisan, and I can appreciate that, but getting offended when a prospective client, who has obvious interest in your product, reaches out to other sartorial minded men with legitimate concerns isn't helpful.  It makes you sound snippy and defensive, and leaves me wondering what your response would be if I try to return shoes, or don't like the fit.  I've heard some of the big boys, like AE, will practically stand on their head and piss in their ear to satisfy a client, and they don't get snippy when they're dogged on this forum.  A lesson well learned for those who want to jump in the pool with the big boys.  Just sayin'.

Was not involved in the recent order but from my previous experience, David has been very open and helpful with my purchase. Sounds like things have been busy but hopefully these should even out soon.

Still trying to figure out Spoo's "One of a Kind" last smile.gif

I agree with crush, with reason or not I think distinctive response was inappropriate, makes me feel uncomfortable about sending him an email or expressing my opinion here like i'm going to get grilled if I don't choose my words carefully.

I apologize for sounding like I was grilling him, we have talked and I know his intentions were good, perhaps the wording could have been chosen more carefully but that's neither here nor there. I didn't think my reply was offensive and perhaps Charlie will concur but if it came off that way, I do apologize. I'm very open to questions and am usually quick to respond, the last few weeks have been extremely stressful, not an excuse for neglecting the support, suggestions, and potential business so I will again apologize. I'm working on it
