The T's are priced accordingly, they're silk jersey.

Also, why don't people talk more about Wooyoungmi on here? I always like the stuff I see, even Mr P's buys. And the pricing isn't ludicrous either

What about it grabs you in particular?  I mean it's relatively cheap, sure.  Other than that though what makes it jump out to you aesthetically.  It's rather bland in my eyes.

Within the sphere it's right.  Margiela's T's are 100% cotton and $260.

The mark up on that tee must be in the xxx%.

Even low end contemporary brands pieces are marked up in the hundreds.  What's more interesting is the wholesale margin....which probably isn't as high as you think.

I just recently bought a Sa Larong leopard mohair/lurex scarf which will be my scarf for the new season (fall/winter13). However, I just came across a really cool Barena patchwork scarf and this cute heart print scarf from Burberry Prorsum. But just like what someone asked in this forum, "how many scarfs do you own Colabear.". I don't know if I should return & exchange or buy 2 or even all 3. But then again I already know what coats to wear with the Sa Larong scarf and I haven't a thought of what to wear with the Barena and Burberry. What to do...what to do? 1st world problems.

tried this wooyoungmi coat on a couple of months ago, quilting on the sleeves is very cool IRL. I'd've bought it if i didn't already have two navy peacoats
zeemon, if you ever get to london, harvey nichols and liberty both carry the label.

WTF are you talking about, could you at least try to make sense?


I love young people, who think they know it all, when they get older they all realize how wrong they were and they should have listened.

I have never seen a retail product with a retail mark up of less than 50% and everyone in the supply chain has the same if not higher mark up.

Also nothing you said was in competition with my points, so I remain mute until further notice.
