Just on observation.

a close friend of mine runs a mens store and has said more and more brands have been asking for them to wait to put stuff on sale. he said one store was so upset about them being on sale early that they threatened to stop selling to him. (take a guess who)

only bigger places like barneys etc. can get away with markdowns earlier.

Why would the brands care?
Theyre stock was sold to stores at wholesale price, so its the stores loss on sale prices -
Am i wrong?

Wasn't there an article posted here a while back about how some big department stores ask for money back from brands if they don't sell a certain amount of inventory at retail/first round of sales? *ETA* I seem to recall it specifying brands that were new to the stores.

I don't get how people are just now marking brands like EG down "up to" 30% off, when it was 30%-50% off at Bloomingdales two months ago. Also, the "this brand is not available for online purchase" crap is really dumb. I'm looking at you EG/Dries/etc.

honestly, if their shit was that great people wouldn't be waiting until it went on sale.

Some W+H on the gilt mobile app. Jeans for $100.

Does the waist on slim fit jeans fit the same as regular fit? I sized down on straight fit and find that's typically the case with w+h bottoms except westpoints.
