You think Gucci needs the high prices to stay in business?? You think ROY needs to charge $300 bucks PER PAIR to feed his family?? ARe you not aware of the liquid assets these guys/companies must have to even open a high end manufacturer??...If you get that then you must understand that no average Joe that is rubbing pennies together is in the business of high end manufacturing. These companies are built by people with independant or collective wealth. Gimme a break pal, get real. And so you are aware, my closet has NF, APC, 3Sixteen, J Crew, custom mades, Allen Edmonds, Crockett & Jones, boutique sneakers, and more. Chances are you'd be biting my style if you had a look. Lastly, yes I AM a college student and YES I DO work full time as well in order to afford myself the things I enjoy and build a work ethic that is more finely crafted than any garment of clothing you've ever had or will have. Good day. P.S: You capitalize the letter "I" when using it as a word to indicate one's self.
why are you repeating what i say? i said you dont understand business and your comeback (instead of saying you know what you are right) you say that i dont understand business? what kind of logic is that? and yes, i know clothing markups as well as margins and they are not as high as you think, at least with respect to the latter. they have a ton of variable and fixed costs they must pay. is the mark-up fair? well, it is all relative. is a lawyer charging $400/hour worth it? he or she has expenses to cover but according to your logic he or she should figure out his or her break-even and simply charge that. to hell with capitalism, right!
