It's now asking, what, about £500 for a 7 year old Y's piece, albeit it being new?? That's insane! If I told you how much I bought that from Wire ( along with a SS00 reversible plaid shirt and SS06 white lace front shirt Runwsy Look ?? ) you will weep......
well yeah i know the price because i almost got it
their pricing model is, as i understand, initially 50% of marked retail, regardless of season, because they get them from leftover stock retailers don't sell (how didn't this sell...)
you can see sometimes the retailer's tags attached as well, with price removed -- either scratched out or the sticker poorly pealed off. it's not always previous-season stuff, as we see with all the pitti stuff !
i think the fellow was a computer science or some engineering student who saw a good opportunity (this might just be me regurgitating common wisdumb)
good thing is the codes that keep coming out and get bigger % with each month, trick is timing the right % discount before someone else gets it
The selling point of that blazer is the cutaway, perfect for a short person like me, breaking up the proportions nicely. You can always wear it with Hakamas/skirts, looking rather Scottish ( oh, forgot you are off the Hakama bus lol, sorry )
lol yeah i couldn't justify keeping if i'm not keeping it in the rotation often
