    Just a stab...but I think he was in Barneys before he was in half the retailers I know of now. Might of had something to do with him first getting his name out there and it was just a one-off thing.

    Again, just a complete guess, but would make sense.

    this is pretty funny coming from an RO fanboy. my friend bought those front-zip boots and the heel started peeling off after less than a month.

    well, exactly, I already expect that from RO, quality on footwear is abysmal. Just never expected shit falling off from CCP goods though. Especially since the quality and pricepoint even surpasses RO usually.


    yah, any RO footwear id just resole immediately. Its kinda already ingrained in my mind I need to do it.

    Barneys is by far the most innovative large retailer in its buys, it has a lot of shit but Ann, Raf and a shitload of others first got their foot in there before being in smaller shops.

    +1. Barney's is the only big name store I buy from in the states. They always have better buys, even if other retailers have the same designers
