    Cut, material, construction. I think that Famous Friends has these on sale for under $100, though. The $150 is the retail price, for a past season item.

    Same thing as $500 shoes then? I mean I thought we were behind that concept of "acceptable price as an absolute that everyone has to follow" thing that really limits discussions. You could, of course, attack the actual worth of the item, but that's an entirely different thing than dismissing it for the price without looking at the value it delivers. It is painfully obvious that George Bush and the military-industrial complex is to blame for this, and everything else that goes wrong with the world [​IMG]

    BTW I thought your comments was funny, I just disagree with it.

    It's actually grey today from my point of view here...

    In any case, a well-constructed sweatshirt with interesting details, a nice fit, using great cotton, made in the US, can definitely be worth $150. There's a scarcity value to a well-made, well-designed garment, whether it is dress or streetwear

    That's an unfair accusation, especially considering it IS green. Just kidding, you're right it kinda looks like I'm pounding on you. Sorry that wasn't my intention.

    You main forum guys are out of your element. You stick to your suits and your pathological aversion to anything black, and leave the streetwear to, well, the streetwear guys. [​IMG]
