Man it's crazy how expensive shit has gotten. I was looking at new arrivals on porter and a 50% acrylic jcrew (lulz) sweater is $160, a poly blend polo sweatshirt is $100, neighborhood henley $170. Not to mention shit like slp backpacks for $900, tom ford wool (not cashmere) sweaters over $2k now etc. Yes I know about inflation fok and cost of raw materials and such bullshit excuses but the increases far outpace things like that. There's hardly much value in most nice clothing these days, I feel bad for the dus getting into the game at this point. I don't really need anything but I occasionally look and it's nice to see suspension point and nmwa selling brands that offer solid value. This has become a big deal for me when I consider something, I scoff at so called luxury items with unjustified prices. Who the fuck is buying this shit and more importantly who's sustaining this climbing ceiling? I'm sure they're padding prices to offset the massive sales that have become the norm as well.
agree. more demand these days so those brands don't need to provide the same value they use to do make the same profits.
