• A New SocialPrimer.com

    Miscellany  

    Good friend and colleague, K. Cooper Ray, just relaunched his Social Primer eCommerce site this morning. It has me pining for Charleston lately as fall visits New York again. The Holy City has a landscape that encourages intimacy. It's the warm thickness in the humidity that works its way into everyone's relationships. This particular photograph from the Social Primer campaign I shot earlier this summer perfectly captures everything I love about this town—civility, dignity, and grace. Let's get back.

    "You can be moved profoundly by other vistas, by other oceans, by soaring mountain ranges, but you can never be seduced. You can even forsake the lowcountry, renounce it for other climates, but you can never completely escape the sensuous, semitropical pull of Charleston and her marshes.”

    —Pat Conroy

    Thanks, F.E. Always appreciate your support. And God bless your curious and insistent readers to whom we say: We are a small company on the rise. We do things our way and we do things on budget. And we do it all with an eagle eye to quality and originality. Oh, and we insist on Made in America, which takes time and perseverance these days. Big news a coming. Big things on the horizon. And yes, we are a tie company with dreams of grandeur. Thank you.

    I thought he was expanding his line and that this campaign and relaunch were part of that - no? I was just on the site and it’s still basically all ties…..I’m confused. It seems that the marketing (which we’ve been hearing about for more than 6 mons) may have been (very) premature - ?

    @F.E. Castleberry hahaha! That’d be one hell of a campaign.

    @George—How else would one suppose to sell and show a line of neckwear? On nude models just wearing the product?

    I’m confused. The ‘campaign’ displays all sorts of items and clothes but the new web site still just sells ties and a couple additional accessories? Am I missing something?
