You are all crazy. Vass will sell directly to the US for $500-600 delivered, and there are other sellers willing to sell the shoes for the same price. I know of one in Austria. I do not think Vass is sophisticated enough to interfere in other people's selling practices. They might show an interest in making sure their own prices do not undercut regional sellers (the price from the factory is retail and very close to prices in Germany and Austria). And Bergdorf Goodman's prices are overpriced and inflated for everything, that is how department stores operate. This is why they have ridiculous sales. I am not sure what this has to do with Harris and Gabor, were they not around BG's prices would still be inflated.
