    ^^thanks dudes

    2 pairs of pants i am considering. will be using w+h westpoint chinos as a template as they are the "perfect" slim fit for me at about 7-7.25" taper.

    7.5" just too much, or it might be my footwear. ugh

    Lol what a weird combo. I guess he was just wearing them cuz they were Prada? The dude I saw actually looked really put together. Navy suit with pants a little shorter than scott.m standard, a white buttondown with an air tie, and some sort of portfolio. :slayer: Would have said something to him but he actually looked kinda sad. :(

    No. You just have to keep buying to stave off that empty feeling. (5)

    That was phase two of their model. They started out just essentially as a reseller, with the most extensive network of retailers in Europe. The obvious move was to build relationships directly with designers as well, and then, finally, to do full priced sites and to actually design and manage the sites of major designers (for example, both Jil Sander and Margiela use Yoox technology). This in turn feeds their site. Essentially, they built on their strength - a pretty unparalleled product taxonomy.

    People ask us "Oh, can you make it so you can sort by category, then by size, then color?" etc... in Buying and Selling. It's not that easy, and then to be able to choose multiple designers, sizes, colors, etc... all at once, and couple that with a categorization system that allows workers who probably have very limited training in fashion to be able to quickly sort and put descriptions to thousands upon thousands of items, is not so easy, even for sites who have spent a lot of $$$ in development. Check out Revolve, for example. You can't get the same granularity in searches, and the search is can yield null results, unlike Yoox, where at each step, all the other categories reset to only show you viable alternatives.

    It varies by region, Japan is like 2.4 (barebones) while the West is like 2.7-3.3 (cetainly not 2.5).
