Picked up an eg western shirt and a linen sweater from massimo alba for the gf.

Do they still only carry larger sizes?

I meant no insult--as I've said many times, I think Suspension Point has one of the best buys out there, and it kills me that Fuuma already bought the size 4 Colonial Cardigan, or I'd be all over that. Just out of curiosity, is it Guidi's policy to not let retailers have sales on the product? Or is it something about how well they sell at retail/the margin on the item that makes them never go on sale?

It says Made in USA on the item, so I am pretty sure. What range are those fees in?

Yes. They'll have more smalls this next season though.

Lmaozedong: No insult taken in any way, shape, or form. I was simply clarifying. There are certain labels (though not that many to be honest) that have an explicit no sales policy. These are usually difficult to enforce and are sometimes bound by sales area / location. In other cases it is simply an agreement / suggestion that retailers abide by as it ends up working out for them and the designer. With Guidi much of the it has to do with the non-seasonal nature of their core product range.

I work for a company that does this.  It's pretty difficult to do.  You also can't enforce it in any way other than to refuse to sell to the distributor if they don't follow your policy.

In the past I worked in retail selling high-end audio/video systems (Wilson Audio, Wadia, Mark Levinson, Conrad-Johnson, etc.) and I can say some manufactures, generally those that occupy a specific market or utilize a specific technology or have proprietary products, etc. can demand that retailers do not mark down there products. 

 

Personally, I think it's BS because instead of the market determining the retail price it is set by the manufacture, which often results in a much higher price to the end user.  On the flip side it allows retailers to make full GP on their goods and they don't have to worry about bottom-feeders price shopping.

 

But yes, it can and does happen in all sorts of industries.

Well I'd argue that the market still determines the price - if people don't buy it they'll eventually have to drop prices. I'm indifferent to the policy myself - if I think something isn't worth the price, I don't buy it.

When does Barney's make the next round of price drops if any?

Baxter of California re-designed their website and has a 20% code until June 9th: 'thankyou20'

I believe you have to open a new login though i.e. sign-up

Their new deodorant is pretty nice, aluminum and alcohol free w/ nice citrus/musk smell for summer.

I am a student, so I get $1200 in monthly salary, should I use my money on this price drop or Barneys next drop?

^ I would wait for 90% off. Seriously though, glad I discovered SF after college

Next drop is 60%, so unless you want something really bad I'd wait for that drop or 3rd drop at 70-75%. Get the item numbers of stuff you want as it may not be online after first drop but will probably be in store

Spend money on girls, weed, condoms, and good underwear.  Buy good weed, work on sticking your pecker inside the opposite sex (or same if that's your pleasure) and doing well in school.  Don't worry about anything else.

 

You will have plenty of time to worry about clothes when you have income later on.
