    have we talked about all the rider jacket-inspired shit for women in the mass market right now? My gf bought two coats and they both have cuff zips; there's a wool bcdr and another wool ridery thing at the gap I'm in rn.

    Also there's a Gap Kids jacket here that looks like that one black and white EG that Synth has.

    Speaking as someone who enjoys the clothing, I thought it was very Margiela that one of the most out there names in fashion apperantly is now associated with a brand that is faceless and wants to concentrate on the clothes themselves not who is behind them

    It's one of those fuck it moves from Margiela that I have come to enjoy. I know fuckall about Galliano though, yet like I said in another thread...I'll comb through the offerings and buy my favorite pieces like usual

    The rider jacket is the most popular form out there for both men and women right now.

    Yeah, I like them just fine. We are not that special.

    @LA Guy i'm saying that "what's cool" has floated down to be much more common, not that "we did this" or that we're being used for market research or whatever else. and i wonder if it's just a short term trend where "our stuff" and that stuff is lining up or if it's a longer term shift.

    This happens all the time, doesn't it?

    Haute couture/name brand designers incorporate very expensive items into their seasonal campaigns, perhaps with a particular twist added to them. Most people can't afford them or aren't willing to pay those prices, but the items are featured in ad spreads and billboards. Then, one or two seasons later, versions of those designs end up at Gap, Century 21, or somewhere similar, priced for the masses.

    Happened around 2000. Not exactly like that, but similar.

    If I go to a store, try on a lot of stuff that was all brought to me by the same SA, walk out without buying any of it, then return the next and instakop something without trying it on because I had done so the day before; the SA is different on the second day, is this screwing over the first SA since I imagine they get bonuses or something when they close deals?

    Sort of? It's not "wrong", but it does cost the first SA. You can ask for a business card and then call it in. I try to do this if it's something I'm seriously considering buying and just need some time to think about.

    What do y'all use to keep track of frequent eBay/YJP/Rakuten searches? I was using Google Reader until it shut down, then I switched to Feedly, however it seems like the feeds haven't been updating properly the last few months so I'm looking for a new site/application.

    Usually in places with some kind of commission/bonus you can just tell whoever cashes you out that somebody helped you (just point if you don't know their name), most of the time they actually ask you something like "did anybody help you out today?".
