Regardless or what you think about the clothes it seems like bad karma to wish failure upon someone for no reason. Of course there are exceptions for celebrity clothing lines and anything produced by Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, or J. Lo.

It was some truth with a dash of sarcasm.

If they closed, I would guess that it is due to cash flow problems. Loads of businesses that on the balance sheet are solvent run into cash flow problems and are forced to close their doors. The average payment is 60 days late. (Every designer I know says that the Japanese are the best to deal with, and that American boutiques generally suck), which puts a major stress on businesses. And stores that go out of business or are floundering will put off paying their vendors (as opposed to say, the rent) as long as possible, since the vendors have remarkably little recourse. So, you could be having great sell through, and still be scrambling for dear life if your stockists are being dicks about paying you. The only real weapon you have is to hold orders, but you would still have essentially written off a crapload of merchandise.

This is true also, we always admired Ksubi and look what happened!, now it's scaled back to one rack of jeans for it's next presentation.

I think it's somewhat strange and humorous that Barney's is still selling the holiday collection (velvet blazers) at full price and that stores like South Willard have already received Spring items but Barney's has nothing.

I found it stranger that SW put their holiday stuff on sale that quickly. They must have had that for like a week before they put it at 40% off.

When he goes on sale it's usually everything he doesn't discriminate.

they should move production to China and call it Band of Insiders. seems like the fit was the main draw, more so than the quality.

i fucking hate all of these as well. with the exception of a very small number of random hamilton pieces, none of these designers has done anything i would consider purchasing. and loden dager in particular is just complete garbage in terms of quality and fabrics.
