What incentive would companies have to do this? patch[1].gif

Those sites help companies recoup losses. If shit dosn't sell well they send them off to sell for a bit over production cost.

Except when they make entire production runs, and sometimes even specific models, for that sales channel.

I do not like that jacket. Shearling-colored wool? With the added, superfluous leather accents to really try to make you think it's sheepskin? No thanks. Fiddly little buttons instead of toggles? More faux-fur for the hood lining? No, no. It looks cheap and tacky, like Zara ripped it off two years ago when everyone went apeshit for the high collar Burberry bombers (which I did like). It's all too precious, or something.

Also I think all the leather jackets in the leather jacket thread are shit.

I'd probably take this, though. Sort of ski-chalet nerdy but cool despite itself:

Each piece created by hand, one at a time. Inspiration comes from silence, from observing the architecture of the mind. Inspired by opposites and compliments, the hard and the soft, closeness and distance, what can be heard and what is silence. The sacred, rarity and refinement, the spectrum of the corridor of the senses and all sensibilities. The process of space, its limits, boundaries, resistance, the geometry within. The idea of the industrial and natural finding themselves. To deteriorate and unearth fibers, to decay, to sow new growth, layers and minimalism.The idea of uniform, reversible, eccentricity, the intrigue of individuality.

I get that, but companies have no reason to price their products high to ensure that they go to these places (which i think is what Raindrop was saying)

Nb used to design for Prada iirc. I like a few pieces each season and the stuff I do own is great. I always recommend looking at NB for sweat trousers; perfect combo of slight drawp crawtch and formal satisfied.gif
