If you can get the same thing somewhere else, you are overpaying. If you can't, you are paying what the market demands, in which case it is your decision if you want to spend that amount or not. Items are priced to sell at their price point. If they don't sell, they go to sale, in which case the merchant and wholesaler might rethink said price in the future. I bought the NF X Oni and I'm happy with my investment. If you look at almost any brands made in Japan (Just look at SelfEdge or BiG) you can find almost none that go for less than what these collabs do at the quality of denim and construction. It's just how it is. I could have waited for sales, but then I would have risked my size being gone.
