The Sack Collection: Less is More (http://thesackcollection.com/)

This is a RC1 site. As the name suggests, this is collection (all of the items are not up yet). The main site is currently down.

I'm glad of Flashblock and that you have an "Enter" link!
Good use of Compromise, to give a clean look.
Incorrect setup/use of images; example: 350px × 587px (scaled to 300px × 503px)

I'm a Flashblock fan too, but I'm not the Creative Director.

Thanks for the image reminder as well.

Very nice site. Not sure about the 'enter' page thou, its not a feature I personally like but thats just my opinion. The main site looks great

I am not sure I like the tabs (top right) - perhaps a bit more styling is needed - they look a bit lost up there ... tab usually have a line they attach to so they look like tabs ...

Not being a coder I'd be interested to know how and where you put a slideshow into Compromise

Yes, I agree with pgm, top right tabs are awkward looking. A quick simple fix is to take the graphics and round the bottom corners.

I don't get the use of the 'plus' icons on the left side catalog menu; they look out of place. Perhaps place them on the left side of the text and use a + symbol for clarity.

Consider using SEO friendly image names for the products. Instead of SCDrBlLarger.jpg try black_chambray_jewel_Neck_dress.jpg. If you want to keep the model number in the picture's name for organization just shorten the keywords used and add the model number such as, SCDrBlL_chambray_jewel_dress.jpg. Images searches are a decent way to generate free and decently relevant traffic.

There are numbers showing below the 'buy now' button while browsing the catalog. I am not sure if that is a glitch or the system showing the MPN.

The front page is looking good. The large slideshow is great! I suggest making the image below the 'Details... Details..." text clickable. It looks like that image has five items, I would make 5 sections all clickable to those particular products — people love to click!

When clicking back and forth sometimes the slideshow fills the screen after the rest of the content thus creating a flash of expanding content. (JS is slow to load at times) Refresh the slideshow page to see what I mean. (esp on slower PCs) Here's a fix.... (index_default.tpl.php)

<?php $slideshow_query = tep_db_query("select slideshow_image from " . TABLE_SLIDESHOW . " order by slideshow_sort_order"); $slideshow = tep_db_fetch_array($slideshow_query); $images_string = HTTP_SERVER . DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG . DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'slideshow/' . $slideshow['slideshow_image'] ;?> <div style="background-image:url( <?php echo $images_string; ?>);height:<?php echo SLIDESHOW_HEIGHT;?>px;width:<?php echo SLIDESHOW_WIDTH;?>px"> <div id="slideshow"></div> </div>

The code creates a div the size of the slide show and uses the first slide as the background image.

Other than that, the minimal look is working good. Consider adding more social networking if it does not break the impression you are going for.

I like the clean look of the site, I don't think the + - signs are necessary next the box showing quantity, just have Qty. since it allows you to change the number in the box anyway. I would also bring the tabs down so that they are under or just above the bottom line of the banner, that way they are always seen when browsing the site. Do you make all these clothes yourself?

Thanks for the replies. This is not my site, I simply tried to give the customer what she wanted: everything is the way she wants it; I've forwarded a link to this thread so she can see the feedback. Yes, maximillian, she does make the clothes herself. Thanks for that code, Luxoria, I'll take a look at it this weekend, and see if she likes it or not.
