Why are some of these clothes so expensive?
I just looked at Acne Studios stuff and they are hundreds to thousands of dollars. I understand that sometimes things are more expensive due to the fabric and quality however this shit is just so plain looking like you cannot tell me that a piece of fabric and some sewing is $300 - $1200 when you can find pretty much the same thing for like $20 at some mall store...
PIC RELATED IS JUST COTTON. JUST COTTON. THAT'S IT.
WHY IS IT SO EXPENSIVE? it just seems like some illogical, elaborate ruse for people to buy their shit genuinely because of the name.
gee look at these $200 pants they're so original and just definitely worth the two hundreds.
oops just found pretty much the exact same thing for $9.95...
this to an extent.
the denim is fine imo but a lot of acne shit is overpriced and not worth it at all, the brand isnt particularly exclusive and even with superior cuts, materials, construction (slightly) it isnt very special
As someone who has owned a lot of clothes in the past 10 years, let me just say this. Any clothes that I bought for less than $100 (with the exclusion of maybe 5 garments) fell apart after 2 years or just looked like garbage. Comparatively, almost all the clothes I spent $150+ on kept their shape, form and texture. There are obviously things you can buy for that much money and it will still be garbage but honestly even RL polo last longer than 20 dollar crap
Shit that costs 20 bucks to was made by kids in a sweatshop dont know where acne is made but definitely not in a sweatshop. What makes most of the clothing expensive is that it was made in a first world country. On top of that you have way better quality because your clothes werent made by a five year old kid. As a result your clothes dont fall apart after a year. And maybe some people feel good knowing they arent encouraging slave labour.>>9114300
Another large part of the cost is the design. This includes things such as the cut and your acne shirt is going to have a far better cut then anything from the mall. Theres obviously some paying for the name but its a small part of the cost and is worth it. Im willing to pay an extra $50 to buy something from someone reputable who I know makes good quality things. There is also an exclusivity part to it, some types of garments are really only made by one designer or a select few designers.
>"Why is _____ so expensive!?"
Because you're poor.
>all these non humans calling portugal the third world of europe or saying kids are making these clothes
Its funny how our PISA scores are way ahead of the caliphate somalian shithole of Sweden where acne was actually founded
