can i work for your style guide as it appears to be coming soon?


Net-A-Porter, the luxury e-tailer which has been open for fourteen years finally saw a window to open Mr Porter two years ago. Net-A-Porter wants to capitalize on the men's market and hey, why the fuck not. Albeit, I hear men aren't even purchasing these items  — their wives are. I don't have a husband so I am filling my shopping cart with material dreams.

Shopbop, purveyor of contemporary brands like Alexander Wang and Theory and with additional luxury brands like Lanvin and The Row bringing it to upper middle class level. Shopbop has developed a brother label titled East Dane. East Dane? Sounds like a celebrity from like the early 2000's who developed a drug addiction after his sitcom failed miserably. JK. Sort of. Failed celebrities obviously don't carry brands like 3.1 Phillip Lim and Rag & Bone.

The website layout is mediocre at best and feels a little dated. It doesn't excite me to shop on the website, let alone browse through the merchandise, albeit, it is superbly easy to navigate. I get to shop the editor's picks, but there are three of them and they've all amalgamated together. I'm confused and found that annoying. Like any other website, your shoes should be the focal point of any e-tailer. At least in my unprofessional (unofficial) buyer's opinion. The shoes are lacking major. Like, Victoria Beckham major.

The exchange rate to Canadian is excellent.

In conclusion, give it time, maybe some more exposure because I wasn't even aware that this website existed. Maybe you should commission Rihanna to throw a launch party offering free styling.
