Are you guys a fan of hook closures? Hook closures pretty much insta-turn me off any piece which sadly includes a lot of devoa/kka/m.a.+ stuff. The only hook closures I like are the ones used in CCP overlock/scarstitch (Backed by a zipper) and a NdG piece I own (More like clasps than hooks).
Maybe he doesn't care about the piece itself, but ensuring that he paid the least amount possible. I say keep on waiting who knows maybe this year that brand's coats hit 75% or even the mythical 80% off!
That is indeed a great knit. The only really unfortunate bit is where the pockets are located (So high) :/ But if as you mentioned in another thread they do a great job of holding your wallet/keys then I guess its fine!
Yeah I mean.. I think these sales are effective for them. That extra 10-13% which basically barely cancels out tax can serve as a tipping point mechanism and if it brings people into the store and folks start browsing around... and start falling in love with things that 10-13% probably compounds in effectiveness.
