I saw the Top Gear episode! It was very funny. I really like your post Saumya.
Just wondering what are they trying to do with the mobile landscape?
Interesting company. it’s awesome that they could ‘pre-filter’ the choices, so that the expert curator could just finish of the process. But when they want to scale, don’t you think the curator will become the bottleneck? Do you think it’s better for Stitch Fix to just go ‘all algorithm’ to have endless scalability?
Awesome post! It is interesting to see how Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter have been the forefront of ‘high quality’ online shopping. What strike to me is despite of their online success, they are reaching out to the offline world more and more, for example by publishing Porter magazine and male-model-like rush order courier service. I understand that they do these to have more touch point with their users, but aren’t the lean operating model is the bread and butter of e-commerce? What is the true reason why they have to moves back from online only to include offline touch? Is online only model is not enough?
