First off, I agree with Chad White over at The Retail Email Blog on his post about Ralph Lauren's recent mailing. I don't remember who said it (I thought it was Caples, but couldn't find it in his book), but we've always said around the office that in photos, the subjects should be facing into the copy. Chad: I agree and if you can convince someone to make a bet with you on a test (obviously not for Ralph Lauren), your money's safe. Not that I think we've tested it recently...

I'm working on some ideas for upcoming design tests and I think I may try this test to confirm my hypothesis. Anyone care to place a bet on which wins?
