I don't follow Private White closely to know why their announcing a sale is vomit worthy. But I would agree their clothing alone is vomit inducing.

They've been making a big stink about Radical Transparency and the intrinsic value of their products; about never discounting. And here they are, first out of the gates, going on sale on June 3rd. They've been serving bullshit to gullible customers for a couple years now. I just don't like their tricks, that's all. The clothes are fine.I don't follow Private White closely to know why their announcing a sale is vomit worthy. But I would agree their clothing alone is vomit inducing.
They also had a winter sale (right around boxing day) and an Easter sale. So who knows...No one had global pandemic on their calendar. If they did global protests was likely an oversight. I'm giving people a bit of leeway right now. Shits fucked up for the industry. Cash flow or die.
I have read The Elementary Particles/Atomised and enjoyed it overall. If I understand the concern with him it's where the opinions of his characters start to show themselves as his own opinions, and in isolation from any of his other positions, namely the deeply flawed nature of human beings. At least that's what I think he was talking about.
I 100% agree with the stance expressed in that instagram post, so it's a shame they weren't able or willing to stick to it.They've been making a big stink about Radical Transparency and the intrinsic value of their products; about never discounting.

Dude honestly, next time you're in a Chinatown just go they got some of the best cheap ones and you need all the help you can get, my toes look more elegant than this.There is always some wise guy.
I have one of their older Twin Track’s too and it’s a great jacket, but I wouldn’t buy anything from them now because of their rebrand and uninspired designs. Their copy now sounds like an instagram brand.My issue with Private White V.C. is that their designs are now so boring. Not sure if that has anything to do with Nick Ashley not being Creative Director anymore. I have a few pieces from them ~5,6 years ago, like their Twin Track Jacket which had more edge like good Belstaff. Their designs used to be cool, now they look like a generic private label default design.
It definitely bothered me that they moved to direct-to-consumer yet retail prices were basically unchanged, and the only thing that changed was that their designs were bland. The level of make and lifetime warranty is impeccable, but at their price point, I could get very well-made garments with interesting designs from other brands. They just never really justified their new DTC prices to me, was it just lower volumes due to no wholesaling? Simply put, Private White V.C. feels uncompetitive.
