Ah hah...

The Associated Press 
SEATTLE (AP) - Internet retailer Amazon.com quietly launched its
clothing store on its Web site Thursday, encouraging current
customers to preview the store before it opens it to the broader
public.
In an e-mail to existing customers, Amazon.com chief executive Jeff
Bezos said the apparel and accessories store offers more than 400
major clothing brands including Gap, Old Navy, Nordstrom, Eddie Bauer
and Target.

The project, code-named Ruby, is not yet accessible from the main
Amazon.com Web site. However, spokesman Bill Curry said anyone can
access and use the store by going through http://www.amazon.com/ruby.

Curry declined to comment further or say when Ruby might be added to
the Seattle-based company's home page.

In his e-mail, Bezos also offered customers $30 off purchases of $50
or more.

Online sales of clothing, including footwear and accessories, are
expected to climb from $4.2 billion in 2001 to $5.2 billion this
year, according to Forrester Research of Cambridge, Mass. By 2007,
they should reach $22.5 billion.
