    If they've are able to discount them this much, then they are still making profit. I'm sure the pricing hasn't to do with trying to be a premium brand, but can you imagine if these were the prices initially? They would have made a killing. I would have picked up a lot more this season. The no returns is hard for me due to all the sizing risks. Hmm Doha thumper is looking very intriguing right now.

    I was thinking the same thing. This is the first year this has happened though. Items weren't priced this high in the past though and not as many items came out. Something prob adjusts going forward.

    Yeah, I'm leaning that way. Doha might be more versatile tho?

    True! I actually like the Doha jeans so might consider those and the yacht thumper. Damn! JE breaking my wallet! Did anyone grab the Doha denim on the forum?

    This is something I was going to bring up the other day but didn't. JE is going to have to seriously look at their brand perception next season and down the line after this season. While someone did mention that they're "still making money" selling at these discounts, it's very bad for the image of a high end/premium brand. It's not a good look introducing the silk bomber at nearly $1000 and then having it sit at almost 50% off that a few months later. Simply look at what's happened to J. Crew over the past few years. They promoted themselves as a higher end brand than they were, introduced new products at super high price points, and have been selling old inventory at 60-70% off ever since. They're barely staying afloat. It's not sustainable for JE to have multiple seasons in a row like this so I really do hope they can figure things out.
