    I liked Park and Bond...

    especially when they had 60% off Gellers for their close outs

    Ditto. But selling things at your cost at the end of season is not really a sustainable business model.

    They had terrible timing, they should have started before Mr Porter, so they could have established a market share before the Richemont train rolled through.

    Saw a dude in head to toe rick yesterday and it looked awesome.

    Tall boots to his knees; shirt tied around waist with denim/leather darkshadow jacket.
    Had a small convo about his ma+ bag

    Has anyone showed her how to do to a multi-quote post rather than individual posts?

    And how do you replace the hyperlink with text?

    Sorry, I meant instead of pasting a long link, I want it to show "this" for the person to click and be directed wherever I set the link to be.

    The only way I know is "Hey, check out this website."

    I don't know any coding language or PHPBBSKjfha or whatever it's all called.

    Yeah that was before I went to chat with him. He was talking to some guy in fly knits and I didn't want to interrupt.
    There was an exhibit curated by pharell in the same building but he came to see my schools thesis show for design. Cool guy!

    Bad buying, poor visual merchandising, inability to differentiate from GILT. Yoox does a much better job with The Corner, Amazon with East Dane.

    It was a failure of execution, more than of timing.

    I actually find East Dane to suffer from the same problems. They carry some nice stuff, but the mix of brands is confusing, and the presentation isn't terribly appealing.

    On the upside, I assume this will mean it'll lead to good sales.

    East Dane is not as polished as Mr Porter or The Corner, but it's way more attractive than was Park and Bond, which looked like a discount site from day 1.

    I think Haven has the best site out of any store I know of. A solid combination of easy to navigate + measurements + tons of pictures + informative blog posts/lookbook/photoshoots (where every item has a link to the store).

    I love Haven. But it's not on the same scale as those other sites, which are backed by some very deep pockets.

    I can't think of a site that's has a better overall presentation/content... granted Haven isn't moving the same product as say Barney's, but I haven't seen a site of any scale better. Mr. Porter's site is probably as close as it gets?

    Yeah, I absolutely agree with you. I'm just saying that it's apples and oranges.

    The Barneys site really sucks. They should just scrap it and start again.

    Thank you!

    I'm really happy here.

    Today is my birthday and I guess I'll post my presents under "Recent Purchases" on Monday, as there isn't a birthday present thread!!

    Thank you everybody for your support..
