The upcoming Un-Polo Varsity jackets are $250, not $150. The reason they were $150 last drop was because we were given the wrong cost by the manufacturer & we ended up losing money on them to retailers. Our Varsity jackets are made with the highest quality materials and even at $250.00 I think its a good deal for what you are getting. The new jackets have a lighter weight fine wool with leather pocket lining. We also changed the fit up a bit & we are very happy with how they turned out. The jackets are made in LA which also drives our cost up. FYI every cut and sew piece we make from jeans, jackets, wovens & shorts are manufactured here in LA which is much more expensive than getting them made over seas in china, India, Taiwan etc. We also sell Diamond Supply Co. product for less then a lot of other brands that manufacture their product over seas at a fraction of the cost of what we pay. Diamond as a brand may not make as much money off of our cut and sew as other brands do but its nice to stamp most of our product as Made In USA.
As our brand grows we may start making more products over seas but as for now we are fine with making less money producing higher quality pieces at a fair retail price. Like someone said earlier, a Supreme varsity is almost $400.00 retail & they are made for very low cost in china.
That's why I love Diamond Supply Co.
I say you stick to local business and not do over seas manufacturing. Considering I did a paper on sweat shops and child labor....
