Seems pretty silly.....his website has no info about his products. He complains about no quality stuff out there, but Aerotech has been in business for a long time (pre-2005) and their stuff has always been top notch (they used to make uniforms for Olympic athletes for god's sake).

Looks like he's got a free/cheap web page, hence the godaddy ads. But he at least needs a listing of what he sells or where to find it.

I just talked to this guy - it sounds like a great line of clothing, and he mentioned the possibility of custom-made stuff if you buy complete kits (I'm very excited about being able to buy a jersey that's both big enough and LONG enough!). Give him a break about the website - it's just a "placeholder" until he's ready to launch. The clothes are designed, ready to be made... can't wait to see what he has, in the very near future!

Got an email from him today as well. Here is his response:

Dear Brian,
Thanks for the interest. I hope to be in retail for the o8 season but available on line much sooner. I designed the fit and funtion and you will be happy my friend. Might I ask your height and weight?
Best Regards,
Dave Krozy
