    I really like the idea, but the price point has to be right. There are a few concerns as above stated. Companies such as Zegna already offer this service. They send you 6"x6" sample fabrics, and you can call them in or order online, then they will walk them out to your car when you pull up at the store.

    so, I've make a facebook fanpage as an opening before I launch my website. I would be really thankful if you like my page. I would make updates there as well

    a bit of photo that I take yesterday

    Attachment 62978
    overall appearance. I know its a bit blurry, sorry. I'm never been a good photographer

    so I will go straight into details

    Attachment 62979

    back collar from behind. as you see, I make it smooth from the back, and the back collar designed so to falls perfectly in user's neck

    Attachment 62980

    close up from the collar down to buttons. cleanly done buttonholes and sewings

    still, I dont think this is perfect. its done with cotton as a main material, which mean it's not as beautiful as my Super 180

    moreover, Its quite hard to imagine how it would falls in the body, right? because its build for a bulky man who desire an American cut. you might notice this suit had a 'boxy' image. its build because I didnt want too much people see the 'bulky fit', if I make it too tight like Brosnan's suit

    I've seen some bespoke suits site, and its seems that I catch the problems. I'll try to find some better measurement methods to fix this dilemma

    I hope I can post the picture tomorrow. I got one sport blazer finished, not my size so I think I'll take a photo on a mannequin not the best thing I could do though, using cotton because he want it for summer

    It sounds like you need to research, research, research your competition. Knowing EVERYTHING about your competition will better help with answering the questions you have.

    There are a lot of online retailers and travelling 'trunk shows' that are in this business which will make your job more difficult if you try to compete with them. Finding something that will separate yourself from the rest will go along way. For example contacting someone who has experience hacking xbox kinect and having the kinect scan your body and take accurate measurements I know that is impractical idea but something that will get people talking.

    again, all the best.
    its been a year since I do my first research. I learned to start fixing lines of supply, training the workers to make excellent suits, introducing them 'cuts'.

    I really think about your bold parts. its quite hard to find a really catchy gimmicks. maybe the answer(s) isnt too faraway from my views now, since if we want to develop supercar, we dont have to reinvent the wheels

    Xbox thing is funny, but I really get the point. some unimportant things but will really attract attentions

    I think this is my best decision to ask an opinion about suits, since its the 4. where people understand (and mostly have) luxury. once upon a time in Indonesia, I was asked by a friend about my suit. I answer with 'oxxford' and he say "ah. mine's better. its Zara blazer and it cost $180". I tried my venture in Jakarta and the result is catastrophic. it seems like selling a microwave to people who never have electricity, they dont even know how important suit was
