Peacocks & Turkeys
So apparently I ruffled some tough “anon” turkeys the other day regarding my 30 sec critique of indochino.com..

My 30 sec critique captured what would have been an all day shoot by “professionals”. Let’s take this another step. If you were selling a product, would you not make sure that it is represented in the best light?
Have a look at Ralph Lauren or J Crew for example, their campaigns capture a story & highlight their products in positive light. Surprisingly one can look at an older Ralph Lauren print media & still be swept away.
Actually, I challenge you to click on the WWIW tag & see if you find collar gaps etc. Also factor in that I do not have a team of stylists & “professionals” or a “fluffer”. It’s just me, a trash can as a tripod & 10 sec timer. Also I am not a model size.
Admittedly I am not as eloquent as Jesse, but that’s just me.
Here is a link to Jesses, post in softer lighting

So back to the above pic - here’s me after a long day in the saddle so to speak. In theory I have very difficult shoulders to fit & in practice should be exhibiting “collar gap” as my shoulders are sloped not square.
But as Patrick (P Johnson Tailors) & Ethan (ex PJ & now at The Armoury) have MostExerent “critical eye” & patience, they have ensured my jackets fit.
So there.. Anything else from the “anon” tough club as it appears they are the majority of the nay sayers & thank you to the other positive messages.
I will try & provide my assessment over time targeting mainly at industry folk as they SHOULD know better.
Please don’t send me pics for assessments as it is best to just sit back & lurk more.
 Shots fired!
