    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.

    Hello everyone....I am thinking on starting an online clothing website and I came across this site called www.fenomclothes.com and I would appreciate it if I could get everyone's opinion on the setup of the site and the actual product?

    Another piece of crap 4th generation knock-off gothic/baroque/LA Rock/Clip Art piece of crap clothing company. Website build is ok but it takes an eternity to load.

    Sick and tired of seeing companies with no imagination still heading down this road, attempting to bleed every last dollar out of this aesthetic. If you go to the trade shows you'll see a handful of the originators Howe/Salvage/Monarchy, Affliction and 400 douche bag knock-off merchants trying to get a piece of the action. It's not a handsome product in the first place but I know that it appeals to the brain damaged meat head demographic.

    Brands like this are the human equivalent of a one eyed hooker with Down Syndrome marketed as a Giselle look-alike!.

    A Rye putdown is much more effective than the spam smiley.

    I know, but the more copy cats I see almost makes me look back at what we started 4 years ago with some amount of pride and satisfaction. I never thought I'd say that!.

    It is. I wouldn't discourage anyone from taking a leap into starting their own line. Just take ownership of your own aesthetic not some fourth generation flogged to death look that wasn't that great in the first place

    Most of these "new" companies are just part of a stable of brands run by garmento shit bags void of any design intelligence. Greed and ball busting is part of their game. Just a bunch of old-skool scrotes who couldn't die off quick enough in my opinion.

    I know you have a big Iranian expat population out there, but what do you think are their characteristics?

    The website is nice though I think the bandwidth would be put to better use hosting porn than tired graphic t's.

    Well I think the web page is pretty good over all, though it could use a shorter loading time. I myself wouldn't add all the useless graphics and the opening theater flash screen, as all it does is add load time while not really doing much of anything. When viewing the clothing selections I would recommend scroll bars instead of the mouse-over scroll, as laptop users may have problems with it scrolling too fast. I do like the set up with the magnification on the right, but not a fan of it moving automatically and would personally rather have a click and drag to move, as it is it seems a bit annoying to stop. As for the clothing itself, I think everyone here gave you pretty clear opinions on that.... ...And good luck starting your own clothing line!
