Thanks to the non-existent Mike & Chris sample sale yesterday (can you tell I'm still bitter about that?), I didn't stand a chance trying to snag the Comme des Garcons for H&M leftovers. This morning, I decided to check out eBay to see exactly how much people were reselling the limited edition collection for. Take a look at the prices...these people are crazy. With the economy the way it is, do people honestly think someone is going to cough up $600 for a typical black pea coat? For that price you could buy TWO of the awesome YMC belted coats from Oak! Nearly $115 for a simple black wallet? Give it a month or so and the zipper on that wallet will be broken. Personally, I'd rather save that money and splurge on a Marc by Marc zip around wallet that will actually last me several years! And sorry Corey, I know you love your polka-dot tee, but buying something so simple for $100 on eBay is ridiculous!
I would really like to know how much these pieces actually cost to make, how many 4-year-olds were forced to sew them in sweat shops and why on earth some people would re-buy these items for such absurd prices.
