    it's actually really reasonable if you compare it to most designer prices

    Some stuff is, some stuff isn't. The shirts are getting more and more expensive. Some of the knits are way more expensive (like the Bee or Ijevan) than others (like the Brood or unnamed ones). But it's a lot more palatable to me to spend $400 on a knit than $200 on a shirt.

    still though, what's interesting about SS is they could easily leap into the pricepoint of designers like damir, raf, etc but choose to price their clothes more in the range of wings & horns or rag & bone. even $250 for a shirt is around what those latter two brands charge, well below what SS could get away with if they decided to play in the same playground as the uber expensive stuff. well, maybe. i don't know enough about the brand or the industry to say fo sho

    You mean "leap" into their price range, no one buys anything at retail, then sell out at 30-50% off?

    SS should sell ok at retail although I see a lot of retailers selling it at 50-70% off with lots in stock at the end of seasons (La Garconne is an example). Maybe that's why a lot of stores like SW drop the brand (not popular enough) and the stocklist seems to keep on shrinking.

    LaGarconne sells stuff higher on most of their brands than anyone else...but if you look at SW they always have a large selection for any of their brand.

    You're talking about something different. I'm not talking about the viability of increasing prices in 2013, I'm just remarking on the fact that, with their aesthetic and quality, the brand could easily have started at a higher price point but chose to straddle an interesting line between "luxury" and "midrange"

    If they were sold at ln-cc, ssense, mr porter, barneys they'd probably sell at full retail on some of their stuff, at their price point.

    Started when ? Back in the early 2000s ? The playground and the pricepoints were totally different back then so I'm not sure it would've been any more viable.

    whatchoo mean? like, what about the industry in the early 2000s would have prevented ss from entering the market as a luxury brand and not a midrange one?

    I don't know what you mean by luxury brands exactly but that whole distinction between top tier, midrange etc wasn't nearly as developed ten years ago so you can't really use that as a reference. Midrange fashion as we know it today barely existed and fashion brands were overall priced much much lower than they are today, effectively occupying a price bracket close to current midrange labels prices.
