I think describing Geller as upper-mid is apt. You shouldn't expect top tier fabrics, but even compared to other brands around that pricepoint, like Ervell and Philip Lim, the fabrics are sometimes underwhelming. It's tough to do good design and good fabrics and keep the price down though. I'm guessing a lot of thought goes into what sorts of fabrics they can use to keep the garments in that mid/upper-mid price range and they're probably picking the best they can. I wonder how much manufacturing in Japan increases costs too (compared to, say, doing it in the U.S.).
