owning a clothing store is a losing proposition. the best way is web only with a small selection of rarer brands, like suspension points, but even then its a struggle - look how much got discounted to 50%.

Well, you could still be right. We will just have to wait and see if people start griping that their orders couldn't be filled!

I know a few shops that do really well.

Just because some items make it to 50 doesn't really mean anything.

If you didn´t check the video, here´s the rundown.

 


In a documented one-time surgery-performance, a plastic surgeon removed a 110mm x 10mm strip of skin from the abdomen of Sruli Recht. The subcutaneous tissue and epidermis was then scraped from the dermis, which is stripped of fat by hand and blade, before being salted, and tanned with an Alum solution. The resulting leather from the dermis was prepared for use in the ring, Forget Me Knot.

SR661 - Leather made from the abdomen skin of Sruli Recht, mounted to a 24 carat gold band.
There will be only one of this piece made.
The Forget Me Knot band is presented with a DNA certificate and a complete DVD documentary of the process, surgery and interviews with the involved team.

Forget Me Knot
SR661, Nov/Dec 2012, 1 of 1
Anthropodermic leather and 24 carat gold
€350,000

This piece is presented as part of the new collection of Sruli Recht for Autumn and Winter 2013/14, Concentrated.

If they sell you something at 50% off they're almost always still making a profit, even taking overhead into account.

But here are some cool brands that are pretty much not available in sweden:
geller, peir wu, ss, siki im, ute ploier, arcteryx, CPs, eg, n&f, makr, W+H, plokhov, isaora, lad, ro, carpe, mmm, raf, damir

but yeah I guess TSB has already taken the spot for "coolest store in sweden"

Nitty Gritty, Welcome, Mr. Gold & Mr Mudd, NK etc. already carry a lot of those brands.

You have to factor in opportunity cost. Sure you can make a profit, but its rarely ever enough to retire young
