    Back in the 90s both Tundra and Coogi were selling in the $300-$400+ range.

    After checking out sold prices, even the Tundra stuff does pretty well. Gonna hit that spot up tomorrow and hope it's still there. Thanks for the tip!

    I don't know either of those brands, but I wasn't into sweaters much. Are garish sweaters from the '90s worth anything much now?

    BTW has "BERUBRRY" ever sold in the $300-$400?

    Yes they do, designer brand obsessed school and college students who usually don't have a lot of spending money.

    This is my somewhat noisy neighbourhood, where one can buy this fine apparel.

    Yeh, most of them are just repeating things like "jeans 99 yuan, pants 99 yuan, t-shirts 49 yuan, jackets 149 yuan, blouses 99 yuan,". I believe Hong Kong also used to be like that years ago. There's another nearby road with exactly the same, but it's all mobile phone stores.

    Man, Mike, I don't know how do you live in such a place...This reminds me of Shanghai back in the 1990's when I used to study there...

    Sure it's only because the authorities introduced a by-law prohibiting the noise pollution, and they enforce it. No doubt because they wanted Shanghai to appear more Western, and not quite so "third world". Think it's same in Beijing as well, don't hear it there either. Shanghai, they actively discouraged outdoor pyjama wearing as well for the Expo 2010.
