I've always wondered this about our forum...why no group buys?.?..? I believe that the peccary glove group deal is the first group buy to ever grace our pages. Maybe the Grenson deal could be considered another...but by and large, nothing. However, check out most other forums, and you'll see tons. See eg. car audio forums, or aftermarket car modification forums. Since the NYT's article, our base has grown considerably. Don't you think we could put this to good use? Obviously, nobody wants the same tie, or even the same shirt. But the glove deal is a good start. How about the shoe trees that hitman posted? How about group buys for suiting or shirt fabric? Socks? Underwear? Links? Shoes? It doesn't have to necessarily be orchestrated by a single member, transactions could be done at the merchant directly at the 'styleforum window', similar to how we order at Bennies or FIH (at sale time). What do guys think? Am I crazy?
