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,

    I'm sure no one is going to think your suits are fake, but I'd still avoid using any phrase that could have a potentially ambiguous meaning.

    When I think foundry in this context, I think of type foundry.

    Foundry will be a great name if you were selling selling Protective personal equipment , toe cap shoes , hi-viz and so on where the concept of solidity is obviously a plus..

    This concept can appeal to suit some buyers but they will tend not to be sartorially aware or repeat customers...

    The segment you're working on is also very buzy with many shops ,department stores even supermarkets offering the less than 700 dollars suit..

    I tend to agree with the guys who say that Foundry may be a bit industrial for a suiting business. Good name if you were selling jeans however.

    Anyhow, if you're married to it, you're married to it. Not my business.

    I voted for the anvil one, but my biggest issue with the logo isn't the iconography but the font. Suggest you play with a few more options there.

    My 2c: It's a great name for the target market - which I think would be only a small percentage of the people on the styleforum. I like the 'edgy' name and think that if you're trying to play in the mass market - you need to catch the attention first. As has been said already though, a follow through with a great product is a must. I get that you don't have decades to built the cache of some of the brands bantered around here but consistent good or bad reviews will set the tone and direction of the company's future.

    Just my 2c
