    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.

    You guys 50 cent burned 150 million. Also, Kanye's just a business, man; not a businessman (apologies to Jay).

    Lots of business are run poorly even though they're superficially successful

    I know somebody in the music business that has worked with Kanye, he gave me a rundown over a year ago of ways that he loses money. Basically by making crazy last-minute changes to sets, lighting costumes, schedules, staff, etc., and doing it all the time. I suspect his fashion business runs the same way.

    Yeah, didn't he just change his album title like 4 times in a week? Plus his Twitter rants, he seems like a pretty spontaneous guy that doesn't think a whole lot of shit through, I could see that causing issues.

    Any of you remember the very first collection he did in Paris with the two designers from CMMN SWDN? That alone was 13 million as stated by Kanye on Sway.

    I've given up trying to understand sizing and just go on measurements - Blue Blue Japan and Kapital vary from 54cm to 64cm chests in the same tagged size...

    Seems about right, maybe he did the calculations on how much he needs to sell his stuff after you factor in all the marketing.
