    It's called a fucking friends and family card. Think on it.

    Not really anything on sale. Maybe a couple of women's pieces at most.

    True, but I don't remember them moving the previous collaborations this fast....It just started 2 weeks ago and most everything is 50% or more off and they've removed the campaign info from their website.

    I dunno why this collab was so unsuccessful compared to the others, imo it was a lot better than the other oretty unwearable collabs (Vesace?!?!)

    Friends and family cards are often times sent out as emails or cards in the mail to customers(friends of the company). Not just directly to employees. Big department stores, such as H&M does this often.

    I hit the downtown Seattle store today and they had the black side zips marked down to $99. On top of that I was able to get them to accept the %20 off coupon, getting them to $80 or so. For anyone interested; there were quite a few 42s left, and probably 1 of 41,43,44.

    It's not unsuccessful, H&M said they actually put in more volume for this collab than the other ones because people complain about how the previous ones always sell out so fast. Of course, having a higher price tag than the previous collabs don't help either.

    Don't quote me on this, but I remember reading something after the Versace collab about all the people trying to jack the price on ebay and stuff, and how H&M wanted to avoid a situation like that again. It could be with the higher volume, they are trying to balance out the supply and demand.

    Damn, all I know is I really want to cop the boots or the confetti tee now. Size 43 boots or size small shirt anyone?

    Anyone check out the Portland store and what kind of stock they have? Might head up tomorrow if I get a chance and check it out. Interested in side zips if I can get them cheap and the navy suit.

    Man, these collaborations with H & M suck. I saw pretty much the entire collection on Michigan Ave in Chicago yesterday. Glad they didn't sell this stuff online, I might have made the mistake of buying something. It looks much better in pictures than in person. I'd rather not have Margiela at all than have a shit replica.

    Edit: Side zips are alright for $99. Painted stuff was just horrible. Suits looked like they would fall apart.

    Well, you'd prob know better than me but I thought the suit jacket looked good....def if you find it 50% off.

    Just got back from SoCal store and grabbed the side-zips for $99 and the suit pants for $50. They wouldn't stack 20% off. Not completely sold on the side zips...just got as beaters. Problem is that I have pair of thin sole MMM ones and there is such a difference in the quality of the leather and just the general feel of walking in em. Leather is pretty tough on the H&M ones and all I smell is glue. For the price they are decent, I just don't know if I'd wear them.

    Belts were down to $20, suit pants were $50, same with painted jeans. Pretty much everything was at least 50% off. Plenty of stock left in everything except camel coat and dark blue suit jackets.

    Everyone is in a craze for the boots but does anyone know if the "reverse" denim jacket was on sale? Or the faceless watch bracelet?
