Apparel purchase reference/consumer site?

Is there a site that approaches (online) purchasing of apparel from a serious and rigorous consumer perspective? I'm thinking of a site where I select, say, t-shirts and get detailed information about the garment, various garment variations (athletic t-shirt, work t-shirt, etc), washing Instructions, which high quality value brands that sell t-shirts, verified quality testing of t-shirts from forementioned brands, etc.

Percentage split between e-commerce shop and supplier

I'm partnering with a small print shop to sell prints of vintage transit maps. They will handle on-demand printing & shipping and I will handle creation of the store, transactions, and customer service. Is there a 'typical' % split between the supplier and the store? Very new to this side of the business and not sure what to propose to them.

Need an online store that allows fax and phone orders only.

I am looking for a turnkey solution, like shopify, that would allow me to make an online store with about 15 - 20 products. The catch is that for the immediate future I only will be selling items via phone or fax. So for now I guess it's really more of an online catalog, but I would like to use a solution that will allow me in the future to easily add web checkout and shopping cart. Any ideas? [more inside]

Open source alternative to MagicZoom or Magneto ProZoom?

Are there any good open source product viewers? I'm trying to build a very simple site with that has a products section. I'd like to display a few views for each product, and the tools I've found so far are magic zoom and Magneto, but both cost a bit. I'm not opposed to paying, if these are the best, but given how many lightbox clones there are, I can't believe there isn't something opensource and better. Has anybody used these tools, or found better alternatives?

What is the most efficient way to migrate an Actinic ecommerce website to Magento?

What is the most efficient way to migrate an Actinic ecommerce website to Magento. I have a clean install of Magento and an existing Actinic website (around 3000 products). I thought maybee do a product export from Magento to a CSV then do the same from Actinic then manually copy content from the Actinic CSV to the Magento CSV. But having looked at how Actinic exports its data (in rowed sections) it appears to be very time consuming... so my question is there a better way or more efficient way of doing this?
