Price is the number one driver, bar none, followed by free to low shipping fees and lightning fast shipping options (which are pretty expensive).  This is faciliated technology.  There are ways to retain customer loyalty, but they are radically different from tradtional "customer service". Carrying exclusive products is one of those.  Preorders and GMTOs are a subsets of this.   As for "bound to go on sale", this is just incorrect.  If the customer is conditioned to expect...
Re. Everlane.     You can become wealthy by building a company like Everlane.     If you are lucky and smart, you can build a decent life with a brand like Stephan Schneider or Robert Geller.  The odds of you becoming a baller are extremely low.  Many small designers essentially make a subsistence living.     I don't know about Everlane in particular, but six figure salaries in tech companies are commonplace.  The starting salary for someone is fashion is well below...

I have a pair that I wear uncinched, over hightops or Guidi chukkas, in the original, olive color, and they fall very straight and relaxed.  I'm on a rare vacation right now, or rather, packing to go on it, but if I have time today, I'll try to get off a quick snap.
They were actually being made last month, so it should be soon. I will probably know next week.Cheers,Fok.
You are like, a one man diversity machine.
I've always wondered why I was so popular 15 years ago.
My wife insists.
Give me the quote.  I had that book way back in the day.
