What's even worse is he claims there are no Colleges in Australia, when there are several...

Colleges in Australia are usually part of an University.

Colleges in US are also in many cases part of an University.

For instance, Harvard University holds Undergraduates in Harvard College.



Also, I was probably the only person in this thread who answered your question thoroughly. I have still yet to see a picture of you wearing this Polo. It would be nice to know, after all of this, what the Polo looks like on you.

If you are not sure that you are going to keep the shirt and put it up for sale, pls let me know...

And break even means just that...
RL pays the factory "X" to make the shirts and the the cost to make just about reaches "X". So the factory just about breaks even = makes no profit. So they run another lot and sell the shirts...aka....profit!

Yeah, I think you are in the wrong forum.

Regarding the College joke, someone never watched The Simpsons.

And I never boasted about dropping out.

And regarding college vs university, they are just about the same thing in educational comparison.

But we don't have seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen or whatevs.
We don't have dorms, frat houses, keg stands, college football or alpha beta kappa pies, so in a way they are different as well.

So keeping it nice and short, me calling you "Mr college graduate" doesn't make it "invalid" because Australia doesn't have colleges. I could have called you "Mr University graduate", but assuming your from the USA, I just used the American equivalent

Ironic how a dropout knows more than a "College guy", eh?

Well, yes you answered my question thoroughly, but treating me like crap in the other posts kind of lost you points.

I told you tonight I will post some pictures, it's 11AM right now!

I think it's of weird for a guy asking another guy for pictures. I think your on the wrong site.

No, it's genuine RL, so I decided to keep it.

I googled "breaking-even" and got the info I needed, but thanks for the explanation anyways smile.gif.

To make it more complicated:

If the factory costs $100,000 and shirt costs $8/shirt to make. Then at what price do you need to sell the shirts to make back the investment of the factor and production of each shirt.

2 areas where cost effect the outcome, one being fixed, the $100K, and the other being variable the $8/shirt.

So:

100,000 + 8(# of shirts) = (Total Expenditure)

(Total Expenditure) / (# of shirts) = Cost per Shirt / breakeven price per shirt

So if a factory is making 5000 shirts

They need to sell each shirt for $28 dollars to break even:

100,000 + 8(50,000) = 140,000

140,000 / 5000 = $28


Even more complicated is when you bring in pay and other sources of expense:


100,000 + 8(shirt)+5(wages)(hrs)+5(insurance) = (Total Expenditure)

So if the 5 workers work 40 hours a week and make $2.00/hr, and each worker is paid $500 for insurance

100,000+40,000+400+2500 = 142900 -> Divide this by # of shirts made = $28.58 per shirt is the selling price it would take to break even on your costs.

Quite simple actually, the idea is that the factories in China are breaking even, then they are continuing the operation after RL contract amount is done.

so in the above simpler example:

$100,000 + $8/shirt = Total Cost -> Total Cost / shirts = price per shirt that RL is paying for each shirt.

Lets assume they make 5K shirts again: 140K in cost. RL is paying them lets say 142K, that's close to breaking even.

Now if they make 10,000 shirts instead:

$100,000 + $8/shirt = 180,000, then replenish the amount RL pays them 142K, their total cost at the moment is $38K.

Now they can sell the shirts for anything above 8.00 (or above 7.60 which is the true cost of each shirt after contract is completed, and lowers with each shirt they make) .

Lets say they sell each shirt for $50. Well, that's $50 over 5000 shirts, or $250,000. Guess what.. they only spent $38K on those shirts, now that factory just profited $212,000.

So in these terms, it can be extremely profitable for a factory to want to do this.

No one ever accused you of not going to college. My comment said that nine-year-olds (in the USA) know what break-even means. You went off about colleges and universities and calling people "Mr. College Graduate" like it was some kind of insult while telling everyone that you dropped out of high school.

Yes, I have been to various colleges and universities but that had nothing to do with the discussion of the break-even point.

Anyway, this discussion is pointless as we are discussing if RL sells fakes at their stores. Thread needs to die.

Sure, but by saying that anyone over 9 knows what that means indicates that
A. You assume I am under 9
or B. I am an uneducated bogan.

Anyways. I don't know why this thread was resurrected yesterday as the shirt in question was confirmed to be legit and not fake.

I can't be bothered going back through the entire thread, but why does it matter dude? 

Does it fit? Does it look good? Was it made well? 

If so, brand doesn't matter at all. 

 

Unless you're a brand-whore?
