    I don't believe so.


    S/S is always pretty boring.

    We'll see how it plays out. Should make this thread more interesting, theres always plenty of basic stuff I like at mr. porter that is horrendously overpriced.

    I tend to get all my basics from the indie stores like Epaulet and Albam etc. I mean the stuff on Mr Porter is probably just worth it at 50% off, but I'm trying to avoid that type of spending; if I need something I'd rather buy something that's worth it at full price. For me, basics should be something that you need, rather than a splurge. This way i can cut down splurging

    Dunno whether that makes sense or not. There's also the fact that i like to support the smaller guys.

    Early access to 30% off is nothing to get worked up over; it's the 80% off clearance you want to be first in line for.

    early access to 52 percent off for a tiny sized person is something, though. small sizes (specially shoes :( ) go so fast! still waiting to see other ppls "First refusal rights" purchases


    what i think is cheesy is when its a big deal for like 25 percent off. gravity pope called me today to tell me of their sale after closing hours this week for a whopping 25 percent off regular priced stuff...bfd when tax is 14 percent

    Retail in Vancouver is so overpriced. The only time I buy stuff here is if I'm too impatient to order online.

    exactly. i almost never have buyer's remorse from my online purchases. but my impulse ones from roden and gpope sometimes leave me "meh"....those need to go in a sales thread if i can ever overcome the insurmountable laziness that impending work makes me feel..

    I remember having to pay 15% tax on everything for 20 years. Now I only pay 5% :) (in province of course)

    I'm looking forward to what Roden Gray brings in this fall. They're dropping their women's clothing so it's just going to be all men's.
