revisiting stalker chic

Trying to think of interesting eCommerce flameouts, I wondered what happened to skim.com [old story, salon]. Its website appears to still be marginally functional, allowing users to check in to see if anyone spotted them with their four-year old once fashion forward identified garments.

I wonder if they would've been more successful if their launch had coincided with the social networking site convergence of 2003. Those friendster t-shirts could've been functional! Maybe people really aren't and never will be into expensive clothing with stalker coding.
