    I've got no problem with that. I have a problem with people using terms like "market price" and "pricepoint" incorrectly.

    The first thing I think when someone pulls that bit with me is, "Then why don't you go buy it from where you found it at that price?"

    What? I'm guessing you have never had someone pm you and say "hey man I wanna buy your size medium shirt, but this guy is selling the same shirt in size large for 60 dollars less. if you match the price I'll buy it."

    I think you had the white/black/red one in your cart, I picked up the brown/orange blue nordic. But that same one popped up this morning, maybe a cancelled order or something and it was gone in a second.

    Tell me about it.. The same item will measure 3 different ways depending on store. Haven is especially bad for sizing... I've bought things from them that were completely off.

    1. Boots vs. Chukkas are two different things, please I'd like to buy a cashmere sweater by brand x for the price of a merino sweater by brand x. How does this even make sense? Or can I get some cordovan boots by Alden for the same price as chromexcel Alden boots? If you can find me that deal, please let me know and I'd glady purchase.
    2. Context's price is great, but it's for one model. Yuketens are on sale at a bunch of European stores, but they are going for 250-350 pounds/euros. Context is selling one shoe. The market seems to be dictating a much higher price. Context's sale also does not last until goods are gone as other retailers deals are.

    And as airport lobby said: The "actual market price" is the price that the seller is able to command, not the price of some sale item you found once, somewhere on the internet, in limited sizes and limited styles.

    Because if we follow you wisdom, I need about 5 million Ralph Lauren Black Label white dress shirts for $20. Since I got them at the polo outlet once at that price. Please tell me I'm offering sellers a GREAT deal when I offer them $20 (including their $5-7 shipping cost) for these shirts. I mean I did buy them once at that price so that's the market price.


    Back to sale news, Ourlegacy.se sale started a few days ago, not sure if anyone posted it already but some great prices on a lot of items

    Just checked my Mr. Porter wishlist, an S.N.S. fisherman's knit that was sold out in my size after being marked down 50% just re-appeared ...
