Oh, you're really winning friends and influencing people now, buddy. If you paid attention earlier in the thread, you could have learned something. Oh well. This isn't your market anyway, so feel free to go on with this tack.

In all seriousness Eric, I don't think this new fashion notion is going anywhere. It's not just that its "not the local style of the board" or whathave you. I think it's a nonstarter. There is an argument to be made that StyleForum would be the best possible pool to do market research in: 1. Firstly, we're all really into clothes, (this is evidenced by the fact that this thread of yours has gotten literally dozens of responses on a Tuesday afternoon) much moreso than your average guy who never gives it a thought and dresses, literally, to fit in to the crowd of penguins, full-stop. That average Joe is very unlikely to adopt a radical new notion of menswear. 3. We spend a lot of money on things we don't need, and know full well we will rarely wear them. hence our threashold for buying whimsical items is considerably lower than most (everybody who owns spectators raise your hand). 2. There is a taste for forward styling here, even within Mens Clothing. We may tease the Thom Browne look every other week, but you do see alot of very slim break-less trousers, decadently stylized Santoni FAMs, pink seersucker pocket-squares and bold patterns among many of the regulars. Unlike the more tradition-bound AAAC, many SFers revel in a degree of flashiness (kitonbrioni comes to mind, but I'm sure lots of us could come up with SFers who pull of pretty ballsy ensembles). So since your designs haven't garnered one single positive reaction (for the love of god, you were turned down by Stacy Adams!!), I sincerely think you should reconsider this endeavor. There doesn't seem to be much to gain, and it looks like there is plenty to lose. I'm not trying to be snarky here, we're all adults. Consider this a learning experience: you just got a resounding thumbs down from the marketplace w/o the expense of having to source, produce, ship and market your idea. Please cash-out while you still can.

addendum: or, if you're not going to take the above advice, please look into the following: 1. Your website is horrible. It looks amateurish on a sub-blogspot/cafepress level. Where are the measurements of the various shirts you offer? how do they fit? box pleats or shoulder? MOP buttons? And I hate to be the one to tell you, but you are not a model. hire some real models (I hear the guys from YOOX do freelance work) and get professional shots taken. Also, the other items your shirts are paired with are painfully dated and are not doing any favors. Those taupe, low-gorge 90s-vintage sportcoats and godawful Goodwill ties do not convey "cutting-edge fashion visionary". 2. Do some research. Know your product and the context into which it fits. You're trying to position yourself as rebelling against stale tradition, but its clear you know nothing about that tradition. I might be going out on a limb here, but I'm willing to wager you are unfamilair with many of the terms I've used in the last couple posts (Thome Brown, Santoni, Kiton, Brioni, gorge, seersucker, spectator, box and shoulder pleats, MOP, Yoox). Do you know why it was worthy of mention that Stacy Adams turned down your designs? For your own sake, at least know what it is you don't know.

And let's not forget those capitalization, grammar and sentence-structure skillz.

This little ditty would go well with that Classic Style Cellphone Holster; and then you would have the outfit that would entitle the praise of "Schlockiest in the World".

thank you for your kind words douchebag. i was about to be nice and post something like 'though i do not agree with your style i wish you luck on your venture' or something like that. now i can definitely see you are an ill-bred monkey who wasn't taught any manners at all and definitely doesn't show any talent in your chosen field. all your hot air amounts to nothing, and you crow about like you invented the damn equivalence of the wheel in fashion design yet you bring out something that i and a lot of people here find totally ridiculous and downright amusing then you imply that we are "apes" lacking in evolution?! based on your designs, which i perused again just now, i cannot wish you good luck and get your hopes up because deep inside i totally believe that those patented designs you trumpet about are not going to fly off any shelf anytime soon. good day.

all I can really add is WOW! LOL

A ringing endorsement of the prevasiveness of psychosis and mental illness in America. Your designs are not art Eric, they are just different in an autrocious way. I'm all for diversity and the progression of men's fashion but what about your designs are so unique? Those long, point collars are straight out of Goodfellas. My father has split ties sitting in the back of his closet from before you were a twinkle in your mommy's eye.

The good news for you is that you will never have to worry about anyone infringing on your patents.

damn how did I not read this until now!

anyway Eric you randomly came here by searching for "men's fashion" but this is the wrong place for you. Every community has different standards and SF has far different standards than your own. I am an avid NBA basketball fan and you do have a chance there, or perhaps with Michael Irvin. You should concentrate your marketing onto that demographic - people who are on TV who have to dress up, but whose original line of work had nothing to do with dressing up. Or you could try the Swing crowd.

haha no, this is from google images. I was looking so hard for a Richard Hamilton suit pic who would have been a better example, but alas I couldn't find one.

I dont think you can call your designs high fashion if theyve never been in stores or the runway.

This thread is hilarious

I think Eric suffers from some kind of mental illness. And if his posts on the forum aren't proof enough, the prices for his "╦ťshirts' certainly are:

Quote:
THE PRICE of your custom shirt depends on the fabric. my manufacturer has access to over 500 fabrics in various shades of solid colors and prints. my recommendation is solid colors to accentuate the pattern and colors of your tie.

the standard fabric is 1-ply or 2-ply combed 100% cotton and price is $129

the corporate fabric is pinpoint, oxfords, end-on-end, broadcloth all 100%cotton and price $ 159

the executive fabric is royal oxford for price $189

the presidential fabric is sea island or egyptian cotton for $229

Dude, I think you should try your hand at comedy.

Jon.

I'm really enjoying this thread. Another classic SF thread in the making.
