SQ I don't think that's what teger was saying. I'd have to go back and re-read the whole thing, but his point wasn't that you don't have a right to complain, just that Barney's isn't necessarily going to listen because their LA stock is lame for a reason. I have a feeling that if they stocked the things you wanted, it would all sit there til sale season or get shipped to NY - their website may suck but they've been a B&M store for a long time and know their demographics.
I'd love for the Barney's here to get certain things, but it's not worth complaining about because I know it won't sell. Although actually I don't know who the fuck is buying Junya and Rick here but whatever.
It's cool you got a response though, I've always had really good experience with barney's customer service.
you get rick owens at your barneys? which one are you at?
i understand almost everything Mr Thompson told me.
i understand there are differences in the brands that will sell.
and i also understand that the avante garde pieces wont sell in LA....
however i think the whole "rick wont sell in LA" is BS.
There are tons of celebs wearing rick...even taylor swift. maxfield gets 3 full racks of mens rick and it basically sells out every season. that shit even sells out in san diego which has notoriously boring style. even the one rack of men's rick in san diego did pretty decent (granted, i bought two of the items on there, i know there were some tall skinny asian and mexican dudes that bought it too). for this particular brand, i think it is just the exclusivity contract that maxfield holds and which barneys doesn't care to fight for. now if they were to tell me, barneys in LA doesnt carry Augusta or CCP because it wont sell....then yes, i will agree with them.
i guess the root problem is that the barneys on madison set the bar too high...
