Interview with Greg Lellouche (gdl203), of No Man Walks Alone, part I - Page 2

post #16 of 32
I like Greg, and am certain that I'll love his store. But, how does this type of additional exposure by members who have biz dealings w/ Greg not come across as a real conflict-of-interest?

I know the above will get more than a few stones thrown my way, and I'm ok with that. I'm sure unbel and Greg and other SF-mods are all good dudes, but if you're going to provide special exposure to one paying-affiliate, what about the others?

FWIW I was asked to do it by Fok. Maybe you have to be both an affiliate AND have a 2005 join date/30k posts?

So when does the store officially open?

Can the grand opening be at a time convenient to online shoppers? I mean, weekday morning at 9 a.m. can be very disruptive to work. smile.gif

Actually, we provide all sorts of exposure to our affiliates. You probably just notice some and not others. We have always been pretty keen to feature affiliates and other members whose interests in entering the business of fashion/style was preceded by a long and illustrious 'career' at Styleforum. For us, it's a compelling story. Sorta like a coming of age story, but with men's clothing instead of baseball, and where the "You're all right man, you're all right." is between a dude and his Styleforum buddies, rather than between a man and his dog or a man and his father.

Hope that clarifies things for you foo.gif

Speak for yourself. 9 a.m. on the east coast would mean that I'd have to get up an hour early. I say 12 noon.
