@ThreadsofApollo :

if you had read this thread for even 30 mins, you should realized that @d4nimal 's response to you was if anything more mild than average here.

He actually gave you a lot of detailed, reasoned feedback on your product and your marketing. Too bad it was negative, but you were the one that made it personal by calling everything 'insulting'.
You have 4 years of design experience. Admittedly, the look is improving but even you admit that the first 2-3 years had some duds. So perhaps you don't need to be so high on your horse when it comes to having your credentials and design choices questioned a little bit.

If you look at what kind of jackets are discussed in this thread, ppl here are more focused on a different type of product. Usually things that are around $1000 or higher, heirloom quality stuff that tends to be from Japan, etc. More into horsehide than sheep. So maybe this thread is not the right market for what you are aspiring to do.



@LA Guy :

I get SF is a business, and affiliates are a big part of that business model. I'm not begrudging your right to earn revenues.
But there comes a point when start to lose ppl a little bit.

Of course, this is your forum and you can do whatever you want.

But you might notice that no one else here seems particularly interested in, let alone impressed by TOA. The only keep who keeps pimping the brand is the guy being paid by them.
TOA aspires to be like AllSaints, and based on your prior posts, you seem like a guy who wouldn't touch AllSaints at 90% off with a 9 foot pole.

Question for all: I wanna add some zips to my DR's hand pockets and cuffs, possibly even swap out the main zip for a gunmetal or antique silver. Willing to consider straight up silver if you all can convince. From what I just read in the thread, I'm looking for #10 for the main and #5 size for the others. Will probably add on some matching snaps on the lower two lapels.

So what color should I go with?

I think you should get zippers only because hijinks are certain to ensue and it will be funny.

Not-so-hot-take: more companies should hire social media managers.
For what? Styleforum? SF isn't a social media platform. It was a conscious choice for me to be here personally and interact with folks personally.

If you guys want to keep this up and talk things out then take it to our Affiliate thread. I don't want this thread to lose its focus and I am genuinely trying to understand how to bring value to this community so please share any insights over there, if you have any. That goes for anyone.

I genuinely dislike All Saints. It's like Rock Owens designed for GStar circa 2000
What's the issue with All Saints? I considered them a worse Saint Laurent/Blackmeans from afar but I've always heard good things about the brand.

Interested to hear your take.

Oh man, so good. A new level of craziness and discussion, just when the old topic was on its way to burn out...

:lurk::lurk::lurk:

I am, as well, curious to hear your insights @dieworkwear 😂
