Ok have done, Gary. Sean they were different, I have those too: http://hamamori.com/sale_15102_472789775-Black-Long-Wide-Leg-Kimono-Palazzo-Gaucho-Pants.htm They were discontinued before this one was put up. Different fabric and fit. I submitted a pic of the other one in 2012 but the discontinued items ban happened the same week.
Oops forgot to say - no disrespect to Orange whatsoever, I'm not going over his head and I've always appreciated his replies in the past. My email have just gone through a service 'upgrade' and it's annoying. (Damn I've left a lot more comments than intended.) Many thanks.
Argh now I'm really confused. Gary since you're responding here and I'm having problems with replying with my email - I've just seen an email from Orange. He says the reason is not because it's discontinued but because he can't find the proto on these two links http://www.chicstar.com/storefront/listProtos.aspx?listType=0
http://www.chicstar.com/storefront/listcategories.aspx?pants&id=19 which are the pages for protos eligible for alteration and the 'Pants' section page. I gave the proto number from this page in my submission so even though it's not on the pages it is here in the 'Proto Auction' section. Which reason is it - that he couldn't find this proto or that because 3/4 wasn't visible (though I've seen plenty of pics with less)? Which pic is likely to be entered? Please don't change reasons from the start and in response to questions, it's very confusing and time confusing. Many thanks.
Hello, thanks for your replies :-) they were very helpful and Jennifer thank you, I think your photo currently up is beautiful. Really refreshing and passionate - but I also had a soft spot for violins as a child :-). The way things are allowed/accepted is subjective, it's more straightforward for some more than others. Gary good to know protos are still eligible. I resubmitted though unfortunately this new pic isn't as clear. The 'discontinued item' reason in the first email was abit confusing.
They recently changed their rules saying that now they will only accept pics of items currently listed in the shop. No protos. It's funny because I'm quite sure that in the meantime they still accepted some pictures of people wearing protos, not official CS items. Don't try to understand... XD
No thanks Chicstar, in agreement with Mary S.
Please bring in some more stylish pants to match with the shirts offered here. These are very casual which is fine but as suppliers we want and need pants particularly. Please be more accepting to pants designs or consider offering more on your own but in more interesting and stylish patterns,fits etc.
Lina / Gary - there is a glut of wide leg pants already available. Please consider these - they'd sell out regularly, for sure. http://www.chicstar.com/community/designscore.aspx?Stripe-Low-Rise-Leg-Pants&id=7204
