If you don't know, the market for designer sunglasses is pretty heavily monopolized. Something like an 80% market share by Italian company Luxottica. They own and manufacture Oakley and Ray Ban, as well as produce licensed eyewear for just about any designer label you can think of. So when Supreme wants to make some high quality sunglasses, they don't have many options on manufacturers. Luxottica sets the wholesale price and Supreme has to come in with a retail that matches Luxottica's aggressive pricing model. That means that the folks at Supreme aren't really going to be able to sell you a sub par quality product for rape prices like they do with the Chinese cut n sew pieces. These are worth every penny if you like them.I worked for SPY in High School almost 10 years ago now(scary). They used Luxottica. The list of other companies was MIND BLOWING. They literally run the show. Good point Shark.
