    please tell me that at 80% off, these retailers are losing money, or am i fucking clueless when it comes to mark ups for high(er)-end fashion?

    Why would they sell something if it lost them money? They could just throw the goods out rather than sell at a loss.

    the selling price will cover (some of) the cost of the item

    if they throw everything into trash, their total lost would be their total cost.

    Anyone have any experiences with PS by Paul Smith shirts? They look nice enough at 80% off to buy as regular white shirts.

    lol?

    They already bought the items. So throwing away they get nothing, anything they sell it for would offset the amount lost.
