A young lady launches the USS ACL.
There has been talk of updated ACL for quite some time and today that finally came true. While the previous theme was an old friend and a workhorse, it was time to take a step forward. The creative and web design for ACL 2.0 was all handled by Mr. Bobby Solomon of Kitsune Noir fame. So if you say that ACL looks a little like +KN then we are flattered, cause Bobby’s site is top-notch. I should also say that Bobby is a dream to work with, so if you need a talented designer, look no further. I’m grateful to him for putting up with my stupid questions and always being game to explore my ideas.
Another exciting development is ACL’s first partner in J.Crew. The barometer for ACL has always been, “would I wear it?” and J.Crew fits that mold perfectly. I have long said that I think it is one of the few companies that is treating guys right (not making them walk downstairs to a small men’s department) with their new men’s shops. Not to mention a few posts on J.Crew (men’s shop #1 & men’s shop #2) are some of the most viewed entries on the site, so it is clearly a company you all are interested in. I hope you like the new site and understand why things have been changed. I tried to keep most of the stuff in the same places, so you still know your way to the fridge in the middle of the night. But keep your hands off of those High Lifes, they’re mine.
