    In terms of volumes, yes, but the margins are much higher in "luxury designer", as the markups in that space generally range from 8X to 12X.

    LV shoe game feel off hard, but there have been a couple designs I liked. There was a pair of suede python runners that were fire but ended up costing $1700 and being sold out by the time I asked about them. I like their sunglasses because they fit my large head and are constructed very well. I just realized this is a leather jacket thread and we have derailed it with purse talk.

    Aren't LV sunglasses made by Luxottica though? IMO there are many better options in that price range or less (I can't think of any particularly unique designs, but I don't follow LV sunglasses closely).

    With over 10 thousand posts, I think it's safe to say we are talking about leather jackets.

    The occasional sidebar about democratization of luxury branding or fashion in general is a reasonably valid topic to discuss in most fashion threads.

    Gang-whining about being off topic is actually far more annoying than off-topic banter, and off-topic itself.

    One post requesting to get back on topic is hardly gang-whining.

    Talking about luxury branding is a valid topic. So start a new thread to discuss it.

    I think in its purest form, when someone buys a luxury item like a LV monogram canvas bag, the reason they buy it is because of the pleasure that they get owning a beautifully designed bag made of good materials that will last a long time and will get a lot of use.

    The monogram canvas material itself is pure luxury because its lightweight, sturdy, and very durable. The same with the Prada nylon materials, when crafted into bags, they are super functional. The logos and branding is the least important, it's just a way of putting a stamp of approval that you are owning a great product. And that's the real reason why people buy them.

    I hope so because I love colabear posts.

    This Japanese site compares the two different lamb leathers that Rick put out last season.
    http://www.deepinsideinc.com/blog_byintention/?p=15645

    #1 is "rugged" (LR) lamb which features distressing.
    #2 is "glass ice" (LGI) which features more of a sheen to it.

    The glass ice model gets a lot of flak online. I think it looks good in those pictures though.

    What do you guys think?

    I think @artishard116 has one of these more recent Intarsia leathers?

    Haven't seen LR before, pictures make it look a bit thicker so I hope it's nice. Handled made in Moldova LGI. Was unimpressed b/c it seemed too thin, but maybe I just didn't like the price tag [​IMG]. Someone with more experience should chime in

    Some of those LGI's have been dipping into the $1000 usd territory. Still not sure if its worth that though.

    They are except for a couple pairs that are made in France. I used to be addicted to sunglasses and had quite a few pairs before I realized I only wear 1-2. I have two pairs of LV glasses, both of which I liked the style, they fit of and I haven't seen any where else. I have been focussing on other purchases, like more leather jackets (staying on topic) but my next pair of sunglasses will be Mykita. Been eyeing those for awhile, no pun intended.
