    I did suggest you to The Hogtown Rake.

    The front length is reduced 1" on the contemporary. Back length will remain the same. This works well for a tuck in/untuck length.

    I think a lot will change once we open up shop downtown. I think with our strong established base already in place, a lot of the local outlets will start to take notice.

    From a US perspective, I think you would benefit from some reviews done by some of the big menswear bloggers i.e. Dappered. Their main page has a huge following of menswear nerds who would jump on your products in a heartbeat if given a good review by Joe. I know Dappered does initial reviews of new brands periodically, so it might be worth reaching out to them.

    I'd like to see your inventory increase before you reach new people. You already have to jump on something you want fast.

    Only on certain sizes in certain products. Again, with a larger base we can make larger manufacturing commitments and bring in more pieces/size/style.

    We have reached out to Joe on Dappered a few times with no response. Funny because we are viewed quite favourably by readers of that forum as well and our name pops up frequently in threads. No worries. In time things will take shape. Patience is key and we're still very young.

    I think a nice light pink University stripe OCBD would increase your exposure. Just sayin'.[​IMG]

    But in the meantime, this thread doesn't have enough pics.

    Goodness knows how much I push your brand on that forum! Maybe I need to start posting more pics there of the shirts or something, wearing them and your suits for the next few months for interviews anyway.

    Like I said, you're not greasing the right palms. Look at Ledbury, they're all over. The reason isn't because they make good shirts (I'm sure they do). I'm sure they're paying a pretty penny for all that placement. Even the sight dappered, which is geared towards more affordable stuff, is constantly pushing Ledbury.

    Fuck that website. I used to read it every day because I enjoyed the witty banter in the comment section. Now he removed it, the website is boring. To think I used to visit dappered every single day.
