      Problem:Back button causes duplicate order
      Severity: Usability High
      When users clicked the browser’s back button from Review Order
      screen, a duplicate order is
      added in error.
      Recommendation: Ensure extra
      items are not added by having a
      site cookie that holds the
      order number from the Review

      to action to add another

      Issue: Customization
      Problem: Selecting contrasting fabric for collar and cuffs is confusing
      Severity: Usability High; Business Goals Medium
      Selecting a contrasting fabric for collar or cuffs returns user to the fabric selection screen, which is disorienting and confusing.
      Recommendation: Integrate fabric selection with collar and cuff screen instead of routing user back to initial fabric selection screen.

      Issue: Customization
      Problem: Monogram does not appear on sleeve when selected
      Severity: Usability Low; Business Goals Low

      Participants liked that their selections immediately appeared
      on the shirt display, however, some noted surprise that the monograms didn’t also appear on the shirt. The monograms were also not on the shirt shown at checkout, leading one participant to question whether his order was correct.
      Recommendation: Display selected monogram on the image of the shirt.
    • 23
      Issue: Customization
      Problem: Color in swatch does
      not match color displayed on shirt
      Severity: Business Goals Medium
      When selecting fabrics, a small swatch of color
      appears on the right side of the screen, while the
      shirt in the display also changes color. Significant colordifferences exist between the swatch and the display.

      Problem: Users can’t customize
      sleeve length and collar size
      Severity: Usability High; Business
      Goals High
      Frequency: 5/8
      Users are brought through a series of
      questions about size, body type, and cut,
      but one feature that was missing was the
      chance to customize sleeve length
      and collar size.
      Recommendation: Allow users to specify sleeve and neck sizes.
    • 26
      Issue: Getting the Right Fit
      Problem: Selection of
      “Body Type” and “Height and
      Weight” are confusing
      Severity: Usability Low; Business
      Goals Medium
      Frequency: 6/8
      The website brings users through
      a sizing process that asks them to pick a body type and specify height and weight. Several users questioned how their selections would influence the shirt sizing.
      Recommendation: Drop these questions unless they affect the shirt’s fit. If they do have an effect, include a brief explanation.
    • 27
      Issue: Getting the Right Fit
      Problem: No information on
      type of fabric
      Severity: Usability Medium; Business High
      Frequency: 2/8
      A couple of participants wanted more
      information on the type of fabric. One
      commented that fabric type, and whether it
      shrinks, is important to know
      when deciding sizing.
      Recommendation: Include description of
      the type of fabric.

      complicated and confusing
      Severity: Usability Medium; Business Goals High
      When asked to make changes to their
      order some users did not see the Edit
      link. Those who clicked on the link
      were taken back to the first page of the
      customization process, causing confusion.
      Recommendation: Add ability to edit specific shirt
      details so it is clear to users what they are changing.
      Modify the layout to clarify how users can make changes.

      Issue: Review Order
      Problem: Order summary description is difficult to read.
      Severity: Usability Medium; Business Goals Medium
      Because the order summary description is not formatted, legibility is threatened.
      Recommendation: Provide a better visual layout of the
      order summary by adding
      bullets or white space.

      Issue: Review Order
      Problem: Missing shirt featureson order description Severity: Usability High; Business Goals High
      The order description summary
      failed to list all selected shirt
      features. This caused confusion
      with users when reviewing

      Recommendation: Ensure all features are
      clearly listed on the short order summary.

      Appendix: B Design Recommendations
    • Recommendations: Navigation
      We added a stronger call-to-action to subscribe to newsletters. We recommend making Twitter and Facebook more prominent.
      We recommend a consistent global navigation that would be persistent on all pages.
      We added a tag line to promote quick scannability and fill in the gap.
      We decreased the amount of text on the button . We made the call to action consistent with the global navigation.
    • Recommendations: Navigation
      We recommend including the following sub navigation. This allows for the site to be scalable for potential growth.
    • Recommendations: Review Order
      We recommend making the price easily viewable.
      We recommend adding the ability to change the order number from this screen.
      We recommend adding bullets to promote easy scannability. Additionally, we recommend adding the option to edit each feature .
