Dear Mr. Cirshan

Thank you for your information regarding the Noble Exchange, and thank you for your gift, it is much appreciated.

I would happily buy from the Noble Exchange, but I am finding it very grim pickings so far. I don't really want horrible space-inspired luxury clothes, I just want more choices for simple basic stuff that is wearable and affordable, and when I say 'affordable' I mean 'costs less than the frigate I'm flying', which I don't think is an unreasonable request given the amount of technology, time and labour that goes into modern frigate construction.

So here's what I'd like to see - some normal eyeglasses in a large variety of frames (because we all know how hard it is to get good frames) would be appreciated, I have eyesight issues but there's no way I'm wearing those hideous goggle things that cover half my face and restrict my perhipheral vision. Some simple dress shirts and corporate wear that isn't "prestige" or "fancy" but more "practical" and steering away from the awful complimentary capsuleer clothes that seem to have been designed by someone who know what was hip 40 years ago would be great. Fashion has to be fashionable if you want people to spend money. Maybe some more casual wear, too - I'd kill for a decent cheap leather jacket and miniskirt combo, or some nice jeans, some different T-shirt cuts, maybe some nice dresses for the weekend, some proper underwear, some hats, accessories, more colour combinations and so on, and so on, and so on....1000 AUR, given how much ISK that translates into, should be able to buy me a whole rack full of cheap stuff, if not an entire clothing store, and I'd rather have fifty options that I can mix and match for my 1000 AUR rather than one very expensive option that only wears in one way. Fashion is all about uniqueness after all. You know how frustrating it is when someone else you know buys the same handbag that you've got. I know you're going to be expanding the store, but please, expand it on the cheap end. Your store needs about 20 times the current amount of options at bare minimum, and selling at about one twentieth of current prices, before I would consider any of it a reasonable deal. I'm grateful for the AUR, but I would have preferred incentive to purchase AUR rather than free AUR.

As it stands, I can get a whole wardrobe of way better stuff planetside, for about the cost of a Warp Core Stabiliser but they won't let me wear any of the stuff in station. If I swing you, say, 10 million ISK, do you think you could employ some planetside workers in a factory somewhere with sewing machines to knock up a few dozen options for me? I'm pretty sure I've got some unused planetology buildings set up in Pator that you could convert for factories or warehousing. Another option is I could just give you your gift back, and you could use those funds to set something up? I'd be more than happy to buy something down the track if you could line up something like that. Also if you need help with design, let me know - I know people who can handle it.

Let me know your thoughts. It's like fashion null-sec out here.

Miss Lybecker,

I too would like to join you in your letter and add my voice to yours. I would also like to add to Mr. Cirshan that a few decent dresses would be appreciated, and that Amarrian women do wear robes, particularly when traveling, and such additions to the clothing lines in the less expensive price ranges would be appreciated.

With your permission Miss Lybecker,

I'm not overly concerned with whether people agree with my letter or not, although if they do I think that's certainly good and I don't mind people adding their names here in support, even if this ends up being the only issue affecting pod pilots that we ever see eye-to-eye on. I'm only concerned in this correspondence with exerting whatever undoubtedly minimal influence I may have in order to make clothes for pod pilots more affordable, and to have their design step out from the dark days of fashion yesteryear when the Bellicose was considered the cutting-edge choice for combat capsuleers.
