Woohoo! Thank you very much!
Do I have to send a PM to someone or something like that!
PM me your email and let's get this rolling!
Thank you very much!
We know Gingham is still all the rage right now and so we thought we should put up some less common Gingham fabric colors online for you guys to see. If you're interested in ordering it let us know and we can set it up custom for you guys!
Thanks again for participating in our previous competition. We're offering a free shirt lucky draw this time around and all you need to do to enter is post an answer to the following 3 questions. We'll be awarding 3 free shirts to 3 lucky individuals 1 month from now so get involved now!
1) We're thinking of adding more shirts, let us know what fabrics you'd like to see more of?
2) What kind of suit fabrics do you guys want to see for our next shoot?
3) Do you guys prefer seeing clothing on models but less fabric choice? Or more choices but using a 3D rendering of the shirts instead of models
Let us know and enter for a chance for a free shirt from us! Also for those interested we have a special coupon for the month of November, first time customers will get a shirt for $50USD only, msg me for details!
1) I'd like to see more classic solid poplins. Like a sky blue, periwinkle and cream. Plus end-on-end shirts, like in light blue and mid blue. Those are the most basic of shirts and what I get the most use out of.
2) I'd like to see a classic black and white Glen Urquhart check suit and darker grey glen checks. Navy and grey birdseye would be nice to see as well.
3) I prefer seeing more fabric choices. Models are irrelevant if the clothes are custom-made. They can help to show different styles, but it's not necessary to use models to show the fabric options. I don't care about the 3D rendering, I just want a good, detailed, accurate picture of the fabric.
The way the suits fit your models doesn't inspire me to buy from you. It makes me think that if you can't get a decent fit on the models, the suit I get will fit me even worse.
Thanks for the feedback Matt! Very interesting to see that people are not too concerned about live product photos.
This photoshoot was our company's first ever and we learned a lot from it. I agree with you that some of the photos didn't turn out the way we wanted due to time constraints with how fast we had to get all the items photographed. We definitely got a lot out of this experience and know what to do better the next time! That being said I assure you that our fit is impeccable and you wouldn't regret giving us a shot! It's only due to our success over the past 5 years in the Hong Kong market that we decided to do an online platform.
Look forward to hearing more from the others here.
Hi Matt S, Thanks for your feedback, as Chris mentioned the photoshoot was very hectic and while not every item was photographed perfectly I assure you that you will find our fit great.
For everyone else, please keep posting! We're hoping to announce the winner toe the competition before Christmas so definitely get your post in to qualify for the lucky draw! Hope to hear more from everyone and good luck!
Hi am hoping to hear from more of you! Do let us know thanks!
I just spent a little while on your website. You seem to have most of the basic patterns and fabrics down, as far as I'm concerned. I, too, would like to see some classic poplins. I'd also like more oxford cloth options, I only saw one on there. Maybe some more Bengal stripes, too.
One thing I would like to point out is the styling of your sample shirts. I'm not drawn to crazy contrast inside collars, or contrast buttons and plackets, that sort of a thing. For me usually the more simple and classic a shirt, the better. So why I would prefer to see the renderings of your shirts, like you have right now, as opposed to seeing them on a model, I would love to see some more classic options, with a little wider spread collar and classic mother of pearl buttons. Less trendy, more elegent.
That's my two cents. Thank you, gentlemen.
Thanks for your reply and entry into our lucky draw.
In regards to your comments we'll definitely keep that in mind. One thing that I wanted to clarify was that you wrote: "So why I would prefer to see the renderings of your shirts, like you have right now, as opposed to seeing them on a model, ". I assume you meant that you'd actually prefer to see 3D renderings, but we actually don't have that right now but we are looking to add that soon! In regards to the classic mother of pearl options we will be adding that in soon as well in our next update to the website.
We have also heard from readers about the need to put in more fabrics into our site so I'm excited to announce that we are going to add a design your own shirt component to our website with a lot more fabrics (for shirts initially) in the next month hopefully. We're working on the 3D rendering component and other aspects like suits, shirts, etc soon as well.
1) In terms of fabric, I'd like to see more bengal stripe options. Different collar selections would also be great; I'd be interested in some cut-away collars.
2) I'd like to see some three-piece suits and glenplaids.
3) I'd prefer seeing more fabric choices using 3D rendering. We all have different body types, so how a garment looks on one model may vastly differ from how it looks on the customer's body. Measurements in addition to fabric photos will be sufficient.
Oops, my bad. Yes sir, that is what I meant. In regards to your proposed changes, awesome! That sounds great.
Hi Edward, no problem. Actually I just realized did you think that our current shirts were rendered? Those are actual product shots (I wish 3D rendering were that good! haha).
Will keep your requests in mind.
