    I'm amazed when people do things like this on Dappered. I don't think anyone has gotten away with it yet. A little honesty goes a long way.

      Agreed, though the fact that the user name doesn't exactly hide his connection, I'm inclined to think of this one as more of an elision of relevant facts than outright deception.

        Any puckering seams you may see will not be present in the shipped product. The photos featured are of a prototype that was not meant to be shipped, but merely to be used as a representation of what can be expected. As for durability, the patched elbows and high-quality stitch construction that comes with American manufacturing should result in a product that will be more durable than something you could get from Target.

          Can you elaborate on the "high quality stitch construction?" What exactly makes it higher quality? Is it the type of seam you're using, or is it a higher SPI than what most other manufacturers use? What kind of seams or SPI are being used here?

              Your final prototype does not match the intended product? How will you know the manufacturing process will produce your vision? Why bother making a marketing video with something that isn't the final product?

              I'm hearing marketing speak and nothing of substance. You do not have my backing.

                These would be my suggestions to improve your campaign - take 'em or leave 'em
                (a) Get a better looking sample. The sewing on that Proto is terrible
                (b) Give more information about the specifics of the fabric - what is the weight? weave?
                (c) Give information about the lining
                (d) Drop the s-xl sizing and keep only to numbers so people understand what they are getting. I wear a 44 jacket which is right on the cusp of a lot of companies L/XL

                  [MENTION=14272]travislawrence27[/MENTION] I wanted to reach out to you here. I don't know how much you know about these online communities, and while I'm certainly not a seasoned member of the style community I feel like I've learned a ton. You probably did tons and tons of research on quality, fabric, fit, design, etcetera before constructing your product.

                  I am a huge fan of entrepreneurship. I intend to start my own business someday. Take these as friendly words amid some rather harsh ones you've received; like anything, when asking informed people to give up their hard earned money for a product, you must not only speak highly of the product, but also back this up with a complete picture (including details) of the final product.

                  Once again, you may have already done that, but we can't tell, yet. Economics is against you, and I think we all appreciate that.

                            Are you talking online or at the brick and mortar store in SOHO?

                                That's what I figured when I saw you're in Nashville, but I didn't see any Drake's ties so I wasn't sure. Guess they sold out.
