You guys making fun of packaging are missing an important thing. Retailers charge a lot of money for clothes. Would you rather your $500 pair of jeans be nicely packed and sent in a great presentation vs being stuffed into a box only to be told you can't return it and tough shit?

 

I mean to each their own, but to me it makes a huge difference in my wanting to be a continuing client. 

 

Also nice boxes can be reused to save stuff or re-gift.

^ I don't believe there is really any correlation between the wrapping and the return policy for most reputable retailers. Honestly I agree with Jet and ipractice... I couldn't give two shits about tissue paper and stickers and all that bullshit. If that's what you want have your mom send you a Christmas present.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but, I think the simplest way to look at it is like the difference between buying on B&S and a reputable source. If the retailer is shipping stuff out as-is stuffed into a box, will I buy again? No way. I'll go with the retailer that puts a little care and an actual policy into place. Then again, I'm pretty conservative about where my money is going.

^ I hear you. Don't get me wrong... I think it's nice, sometimes very nice. But then I just feel guilty putting it straight into the recycling bin and/or the trash.

Yeah of course that's an issue but I always save it in case I want to sell something or send it to B&S and give my client/customer a better experience. It's a small expense that goes a long way I think. Like when I go to barneys and they take a few minutes to wrap something up. They don't have to do it. It takes away my time. But you can't ever complain about it because they're putting more value into your buy.

Also, earlier this year Matches had artist commissioned boxes by KAWS, REVOK and other great artists. I'm currently using one of their boxes as my monitor stand. So yeah. Great Packaging FTW

Fancier/more elaborate packaging just means more steps in between me and my shit. Suspension Point and zfactorie do it right - each item in a plastic bag and a layer of tissue paper around everything. Haven't figured out what to do with all the Zam garment bags I have piled up (almost every individual item comes with one), though. lol8[1].gif

To keep things relevant, Maas and Stacks went down to 50% a few hours ago today

I simply comment on packaging, and everyone has to amplify it ...I guess its not that surprising though.
