I wish SLP or Balmain or Amiri did huge mark downs!
They do... especially Amiri, you just have to look for the sales. Black Friday they do 50% off, I’ve seen SLP do the same. Also SSENSE, Mr. Porter, and the likes do big sales at the end of the season.

🙏🏿 . Yeah Everything is dropping like crazy. It’s a buyers market. You might be able to grab the 5s for a decent price
My god those kicks. If this economic downturn continues and resell prices drop more I have to snag a pair of those.
Is it? Kicks I want still $550-$700. Yeezy Azael and QNTM are two I wouldn't mind grabbing on a hardship discount. Stock X and GOAT still have those over double retail though.

Oh yeah that’s the price it’s floating around. The 5s were up to 1200 in my size. They are down to around 6ish now (they were 750-8 before corona). I’m surprised you didn’t snag any kicks. The Chi had them all.

Yeah but I mean currently in this situation. Could change anytime I suppose if sales drop 80%.
Saw interesting article few days ago about China and Luxury Fashion. It said since China went into lock down in Janaury the sales for fashion dropped 80 to 90% and as China was 70% of the fashion sales growth over last few years it was a shock. However since March and them lowering the lock down sales gone back up and in March were 5% lower then March last year.

FG private sale was goat. Other designers need to follow. Ain’t no one buying shit right now. Well, a lot of people did on this thread, but I literally saw 25% off and was not intrigued. 40% off, now I’m listening. 70% off, you’ve aroused me.

Seems like a dye issue if everyone has that problem throughout different products.
Can easily happen with all sorts of garment dyes and treatments. That's why a lot of these products come with tags warning about color transfer and bleeding, etc.

I wish SLP or Balmain or Amiri did huge mark downs!
Serious question though: What on earth would you want from Balmain right now?

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
