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,

    Other than yoox are there any sites with actual sales? 20-30% is nice but doesn't incline me to spend any money as most stores have had that amount off sometime this season already

    which merino sweater would u purchase for $35?

    Club Monaco
    Express
    J Crew


    i own both jcrew and express merino sweaters, the express feels much thicker than the jcrew.
    going by the pictures the club monaco one's seem thin also.
    is this true??

    Every time I see that affiliate thread I'm reminded that I basically spent $75 three years ago for something to carry packages in when I go to the post office. :facepalm:

    - Outright telling someone not to give you their business because you aren't sure if the clothes will fit you is bold, if not poor strategy for a mom and pop type of operation.
    - Sizing questions are, unfortunately, part of the territory when you make your living selling clothing. It doesn't matter how readily available the answers to these questions are. New potential customers will (you hope) continue to bubble up. With that will come questions that have probably been answered before. I'm sure it's frustrating, but again, that's stuff pretty much every small clothing retailer deals with. And nice guy or not, Mauro doesn't exactly have a sterling track record with consistent sizing, so he should probably be a little more patient with these types of questions.
    - The tote holder program is a fine concept, but Mauro has kind of conditioned his customer base to expect discounts and sales. The levels of discounts is not rocket science, but it does muddy the waters a bit. Don't want people asking inane questions about stacking codes? Don't price your entire inventory in a way that accounts for a discount or steep sales. When you give a small subsection of buyers (e.g. tote holders) a discount concurrent with a discount code for everyone else, you have to anticipate that at least a couple of people are going to wonder if they can stack these discounts. I don't agree with the mentality, but again, that's the double-edged sword of conditioning your customers to expect never to pay retail on your stock.

    PK, you are trying to rationalize part of the universe that will never be explained. That is classic, VLSI. I thought that post was from three years ago.

    mauro comes off as a dick, but wvg price/quality ratio is probably unbeatable.
