    If there's a code, it's posted already. If you don't see it, if you don't see people chatting about what they're insta-kopping, then there isn't a code. It's that simple. It's weird to come here every day and only see 1 relevant new post and 20 "is there a code" posts. I want codes as much as the next guy, but seriously, try to be rational. People might finish their shopping session first when they have a code at hand, but then they'll post it here. It's how this thread works.

    depends on the brands. Saying if W+H, SNS herning stuff, OK 50% off, worth it.
    For designer brands 700$ tee, even at 70% off, not everyone can pull the trigger. The price is just ridiculous.

    You're missing the point. It's annoying sifting through pages of people asking for codes in a thread designed as a place to post codes/sales as they happen. If there's a code it will be posted, no need to ask for it.

    thats not what i get upset about

    its when someone gets flamed for wanting a code on top of a sale

    codes which sometimes do exist

    these people get flamed for asking because the sale is already 60, 70, 80% off

    fundamentally thats wrong

    if i got a code and something is 95% off and it'll get you to 99% off i got you artishard116
    but thats because i'm a human being that understands money doesn't grow on trees and i care about you

    and I'm saying you don't need to come in this thread 'wanting a code'. It's there or it doesn't exist.

    The problem is people don't understand that the corner NEVER has coupons (except for this black friday) and why would they most of their stuff is already 70%.

    every time i see new posts i wonder whats on sale, then i open the thread and see people asking for the same non existent coupon i die a little inside.


    On topic, H lorenzo has some nice leathers at 50% size 1-2.

    If the you die a little bit on the inside for looking into an electronic forum thread about sales, involving nothing more than moving your index finger on your mouse for hand made clothing, #firstworldproblems.

    Have u guys noticed the the price of clothing inflated hugely over the past 3 years.

    For example. Burberry garbadine classic trench, only 1195 3 years ago, and 50% is a good deal, but now the same jacket is like 1695 I think. Also, with Chanel, the classic bags almost tripled in the past 5 years. Now it's 4900 for a caviar classic bag jumbo size, not totally sure about 4900 price, but close enough.

    I think the time has maybe come initiate a 'Official Sales Alert thread (Discussion)' thread.
    I've regularly checked and bookmarked this thread for obvious reasons, though I'm predominantly a lurker so perhaps my opinion is void.

    This thread is becoming progressively less useful as a resource of pooled knowledge on current / upcoming sales. There's plenty of threads for discussion & if we need one for discussion of sales, that would be really easy to arrange. I do appreciate the occasional banter and relevant comments, but it really is now to the point that to find 'sales alerts' it involves scrolling through approximately two pages of discussion per 'alert'. As an example, note existential crisis this thread seems to currently be having (and I think I remember this same discussion around the July sales last year).

    An 'Official Sales Alert thread (Discussion)' would just separate the discussion (to a place where it can easily continue) and leave the 'alerts' thread for 'alerts'.
    Just an idea, maybe you can at least flame me over in the other thread as a start? :)

    ^ thats why a lot of brands are able to get discounted so much.

    Agreed. If people searched the thread instead of just posting, they would see posted codes. Instead, there are twenty posts requesting yoox codes for every post with a code. The code request posts have gotten so predictable, too. A certain shop drops sales to 70%, and there are immediately five posts asking for codes to stack on top of it.
