Plans have been afoot for a while for a new website the issue is that nobody can give us an effective way of doing it. 

Good luck with that project, be interesting for some smart young creative am sure.  Plenty of examples of those doing it well out there.  No need to reinvent the wheel, watch and learn who is creatively leading the pack.  Slowear recently updated their site, looks pretty impressive so far. They seem to be a early adopter of some better looking sites. They also have an excellent Blog type page that you can subscribe to.

Hi Simon,
Good to see you n here as an affiliate, I'll reply to your email when I'm back from my honeymoon.
I know you have mentioned the site in the past and acknowledged it needs fixing, this really should be your top priority at the moment, as you can see by the responses it's clearly turning people off buying from you. I'd recommend looking at the cottonwork website as a guide to a nice clean site that has an automated ordering process. Being honest, people don't care how many tailors you use etc, they just want it as simple as possible and this is the whole essence of buying online, making it as easy as possible for the customer.
Biggest thing you need to fix though, and this translates through to your site as well is to find away to say what you need n a hell of a lot less words, like about a 5th of what you are writing now. Looking at your opening post on the affiliate thread, it's like a novel! People will just turn off after a few paragraphs if they can see 10 more coming up. Hope that helps constructively. Time for a fish!

+1 exactly.

 

The obvious question to me here Charlie - why on earth are you posting on you honeymoon, you surely risking fate worse than death!!!

I wasn't a fit critique per se, just they way it fit me. I absolutely love the way the Garrison lookson others, eg:

 

 

I just don't have the slim upper waist that makes it looks like this. As for the jacket length, this could also have affected me as I'm 6'2" and really require a long jacket which they didn't have.  I think the lapels looked even bigger because of the plaid/POW check.

 

In other news, Sportscraft has some pretty cool unconstructed cotton/linen jackets/suits at affordable prices for those looking for racewear. Lapel is too skinny, but they look alright for $299 less 25% off or something.

Found a comparison, the garrison lapel looked like this: http://www.styleforum.net/t/261937/final-drop-nwot-ralph-lauren-garrison-jacket-40r-glenn-plaid-brown

 

If you don't think this is big, your name is probably Tom Ford.

Shipping will be around a week, but factor in at least a fortnight on top of that to get the order finalised.

Lapel sizes for PJ coats is based on whatever block size your coat is based on. The MTM system they have adopted doesn't allow miniute changes in lapel size. You can only choose between the standard lapel, and the wide (very wide in reality) lapel.

Simon at Elite - I have a few comments:
- website, yup, won't say anymore
- and yes much less words, and potentially...
- (my contribution) more pictures! why don't you start posting pictures of garments you have delivered to customers...it will probably gives us something else to look at other than the website...most SF poster will be able to tell whether that's what they are after by looking at real pics of suits you have delivered...

My $0.02..

his lapel options are:

 

Notched or Peak

 

in Narrow, Standard and Wide widths

 

With or without button hole on the roll.

 

You can even specify things like AMF stitch distance from the edge which is a cool touch :)

I know they originally had a narrower lapel. Haven't seen it for so long that I assumed they didn't do it anymore.

I have coats in both the standard and the wide lapel models. I find the wide too wide.

Yes, 3-roll-2 is a new option.

lol. You just made me realized the lapels are really large on Garrison jackets. Mine is dark grey flannel so it dons't really stand out that much.
