[Quote] I like the brand and it's products, but I would never buy anything from it. They have chosen an extremely competitive market, occupied by staple giants such as J.Crew, Bannana Republic, Polo, Hifliger and many others. The great majority of these brands have exceptional quality for their price. Even though Todd Shelton may use superior fabrics, the prices are too high and not justified by the customization that is offered. Something that many startup brands don't understand is how much brand recognition controls the pricing. Although, your manafacturing costs may be high if you're focused on better qaulity, for now you shouldn't even think of making profit to keep costs low. This will attract customers and help your brand take off. Right now you are charging $180 for a shirt that is made of 100/2 ply cotton. Kirkand makes the same exact looking shirt, of the same material and it costs $16. Whatever arguments to be had about attention to detail and domestic manafacturing don't account for this disparity. Now if Todd Shelton had at least half of the recognition of a brand such as (to use a familar example) Supreme it'd be a different story. Back to your custimization. It completely misses the mark. I belive that you are trying to offer online tailoring as your major selling point, but it's a weak one. With such a wide variety of options in-store the chances of not finding  a shirt that fits well is slim, and any modifictions can often be done quickly and cheaply in-store or at a corner tailor. How in the world would a person tailor a shirt to themselves without first trying it on and no oversight on the process (assuming that the majority of your customers don't live in the vicinity of East Rutherford)? Perhaps I'm not seeing something here, and if so please explain. Thank you.
