1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Onlines sales grow bigger by the year, though jacket fitting is a great obstacle for international deals.

    w.o.e., your business might benefit from a detailed measurement info of every jacket model in every size, with pictures or videos on how the measurements are taken. Not the perfect solution, but you could raise the bar for all other webstores.

    this is good feedback that I will definitely take it into consideration moving forward.
    Logistically, it can be difficult to strike the right balance between information for the customer and providing a unique/interesting web shopping experience.

    As the business grows, I will make an effort to be fluid and attentive to public opinion.
    the advantage of a small operation is that changes can be made without too much difficulty.
    the flip side is that a small operation often does not have the capital or means to immediately implement every suggested change into its business model or website.

    All in due time.

    Wow beautiful stuff. Isn't 650USD extremely reasonable for a full-canvassed coat made in the US?

    I believe so.
    When I was a practicing attorney, I was fortunate to be able to afford relatively pricy items.
    the vast majority of my friends, and most Americans, cannot.
    To that end, It was my goal to make a $500 fully canvassed coat of respectable quality.
    We aren't quite there yet, but I'm making every effort to provide well-made domestic goods at a decent rate.

    My New Lagos pocket handkerchief arrived today! [​IMG]

    It's excellent. The design is so fresh and the colours are beautifully vivid. I'm going to get a lot of use out of it, I'm certain. What I like most - and this is not so evident in the photos - is that the fabric blend/weave is quite open (very similar to my Drakes squares in the same blend). This makes for a pleasing variegation when in use as the colour saturation varies a little depending on how densely folded/puffed the fabric is. It's a very engaging character trait.

    Great stuff, Wale. [​IMG]

    Friends in Paris, if you happen to be riding the Metro, you might see a familiar face promoting the Etonnent Voyageurs festival.:slayer:
