We just put up a few pieces of Geller, with more to come soon including two types of denim. Be sure to use code SF10 for 10% off your order :slayer: 

 

This season was guest-curated by @artishard116 , so expect plenty of badass stuff and some form of editorial in the future.

How would you size the cutoff hoodie? That one pic of it completely laid out really sheds some light on why some measurements have been really large for the p2p.

Sorry, I only found a 46 http://page21.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/j382721197

 

There was a 48 but it sold a little while ago.

go with your normal size. It's slouchy, but that's what makes it work

Do people normally sale shop on Geller? Just wondering. I recognize its not the point.
post #8709 of 10832
What do you mean? Shop for wherever is cheapest or wait flu til end of season?
If there's something I really want I buy when I see it/can afford it, especially being a 52. At the end of the season when things start going on sale though a lot of stuff that I maybe was on the fence on start looking a lot more appealing.

Wait till end of season. I just like his direction a lot, and want to sprint buy through the pieces, but that's just not feasible.

I know I've gotta save up or hope something doesn't speak to the market and hits the sale rack.

Anyway, curating is a marathon, amirite.

For Geller, I tend to buy full price and at the start of the season. I love the label. If I don't buy full price, the label goes away. I like the shops that stock Geller (mostly), if I don't buy full price, the shops go away and then the label goes away. The buys are so varied that typically there's only one or two stockists (even including Japan) that have stuff in my size, so if I love something others likely will too and it'll be gone by end of season.

I do buy stuff on sale, for sure. But, for me, sale time is like a game to see what's left that I'm still interested in - because when sales start, it's usually the beginning of next season anyway and who wants to buy winter stuff at the start of spring or vice versa? Not a hoader.

To each their own, of course. But, I do feel like with Geller that if there's something you love best to act quick.

To be fair, winter sales generally start around Thanksgiving, which is just the beginning of real winter. From September to Thanksgiving is pretty much fall. Not that cold.

 

Same for S/S season.

To be fair, that depends upon where you live. Here in Denver it doesn't truly warm up until May (i.e. warm enough for S/S wear day and night) [and even then, snowstorms in May are not uncommon], and it doesn't truly cool down until late October/early November, so there's a lot of overlap between fashion seasons and actual seasons.

But overall I agree with your post. I used to buy almost exclusively from sales, but now that I have a higher income, have built up a decent wardrobe, and have tired of missing out on things I really wanted by hoping they lasted until sale season, I've almost always bought everything I wanted from a season long before the sales hit. At least 90% of what I buy anymore is either a pre-order or at the very beginning of the season for full (or near-full) retail. Literally the only sale item I bought this season was an Ervell pocket sweater at a ridiculously cheap price (apparently Ervell has lost a lot of popularity or something???) that I noticed at Maas & Stacks last weekend when I was checking out their new S/S stock.

I will also add that sometimes if I see a 52 at a huge discount I will kop it in the hopes the shop doesn't give up entirely on bigger sizes, even if it's not something I need/really want. I don't do it all the time but it has happened a few times when stuff gets to 70% or above and the only piece left is one size 52
post #8715 of 10832
If the last piece left at deep discount is the 52, I'm afraid it is too late for your strategy to actually have an effect on the store's buy. If the last size that goes (at a loss too) is a 52, that will be the first size to be cut.

I know we constantly adjust our size runs based on what sells pre-markdowns. That is the only important sell-through data for a retailer. All the other retailers do the same. Sell-through reports really only matter pre-markdowns.
