    Not sure how TF works on the whole sale side, they might be REQUIRED to buy 2 of each size, even though there is clear demand for a 40 or 42...EX they might sell those the first day they put them out and would rather have purchased 6 in that size and non in the 36 or 46. I don't think they work like that, but if your doing a size run, the smallest and largest always sit there longer. I honestly think it comes down to there is a min. amount you produce of something to bring the cost of production in line with what your selling it for, and then in the luxury goods world you have to sell everything or else it just sits there taking up someones space, be it space on the floor at NM, space on the floor in your own stores, or space in your outlet stores...

    I was at the etro outlet the other day and curiously asked what happened to stuff that didn't sell there. They told me, oh it sells here and pointed to some accessories that I know for a fact were at least 4 years old. Mind you they are now 75% off the outlet price, which is already 1/2 of the retail price. Mind you they still weren't flying off the shelves.

    So now I have a reason to drive down to NY and stop off at Woodbury now. I am happy and mad at the same time.

    Who wants to bet on prices? $5700 suit for only $3000! When I was in Miami I was looking at the selection a store had of TF there. They were selling a navy blazer for $4500. I don't think I'll ever be able to justify buying TF. Well... if I were a decamillionaire maybe... But OTR TF doesn't even fit me too well. Ug, why did I write this post?

    I was thinking around $3000 too. That would be keeping with the prices at the Brioni outlet at Woodbury.
