True, a lot of the sites I come across tend to stock accessories, etc. (and sometimes homewares) as well as t-shirts. There is a definite argument that that weakens their image and makes their site more complicated than it needs to be.Vinci said:I've got some more on my list, but several of them are not specialised in t-shirts, as digitalgravel is.
That is unfortunately very hard to define. To be blunt, it mostly depends on how much of an elitist I feel like being at the time. Our egos so often get in the way of our judgement after all.Vinci said:But what is mainstream and what is alternative for you? Do you think digitalgravel is mainstream? Can you give an example of alternative clothing?
For sure. I don't like the sites, but that doesn't mean they won't make a whole heap of money (and be satisfying to run).Vinci said:I think you're right about 'behind the time', but not everybody is a pioneer.
Like I said I'd be happy to sell them stock. That's just a matter of money, and I like money. I just wouldn't give them my money (I am but a drop in the ocean however).Vinci said:I think it is a good idea to sell them just a part of the stock, not everything. The other part van be sold to retailers or on an own site.
I'd consider them retailers, but they may see themselves differently. I think if you're dealing with a company on a wholesale level, it's often more important how a company sees itself than how you see them. They'll have their expectations, and it's a matter of whether or not you feel you can meet those and still make a reasonable profit.Vinci said:That brings me to another question: Should these sites, that sell several brands, be considered as retailers, when delevering them clothing, thinking at prices, or is there a difference?
There's no need to apologise for your English. As the cliche goes your English is better than my Dutch.Vinci said:Sorry for my 'faulty' english.
