Sounds like what I say most days.  Do we have $650 in the house?
With the current round in production, I may start discussions for a new round of Styleforum GMTOs very soon.  Stay tuned, gentlemen.
This is a result of the growth, or really, the birth and emergence, of the "high end high street" brands, that in many ways mimcs higher priced designer goods and luxury brands.   Until about 2000, this category simply did not exist.  The fashions that you could get at a high end "streetwear" store, had essentially nothing in common with what you could get from a high end, designer focused, boutique or department store, like a Barneys.  The Acne's and Ami's of the world...
