your wasting your time trying to find a solid answer here. all youre gonna get is "the fabrics are of such high quality" and/or the usual streetwear diss " if you dont like the price go rock [10 deep,stussy,crooks and castles,supreme,etc] instead"

While it has to be said that what sets certain high end (japanese) brands apart from 10deep etc is the material and overall quality, mastermind is still ridiculously F***kin excessive. there comes a point where a tshirt cannot be more than just a thsirt, you can make it out of the finest egyptian cotton and make it limited to 20 pieces worldwide but its still just a tshirt and 500 for a tshirt is ridiculous. Ive never seen any mastermind stuff in the flesh, but I cant in a million years see how they can justify their insane price tags.

There are many overpriced Japanese brands that may not be very different in quality and construction that sets itself apart compared to other brands but MMJ definately is superior in terms of quality and construction. Most of their tees are a very nice silk/cotton blend and the cutting of them are slimmer and suit superior fashion much more than, say, NBHD. Their stuff is also super limited and hard to get. Even on yahoo.jp, you will mostly only see size S stuff which is tiny. Cliffedge's prices are very high though. If anyone is interested, I'm selling this in XL which fits like a L in NBHD and Undercover tees. Brand New with tags, only selling it coz I bought L and XL so see which one fits better. I'm keeping the L. XL MMJ stuff is extremely hard to find. US$370 shipped Worldwide for the XL. I have many refs on bapetalk2.com so you can check them out there. Same username.

[SIZE="3"][FONT="Times New Roman"]I think like the guy said in the article,that he keeps his prices high sort of so to not sell out ....cause a lot of companies offer there clothes that are affordable to everyone and at the end of the day the brand gets played out ....So keeping it at high price keeps them from having to experience that [/FONT][/SIZE]

I can see where hes coming from, but at the same time I still think that the prices are a bit excessive. Having said that, the Japanese have more disposable income than we do, so comparitively its not that expensive. Its like for most of us, a Rolex is well out of our price range, you have to be making big bucks to want to spend that much on a watch, but in Japan its quite common for middle class "salarymen" to own a rolex or similar. The reason is that, first of all the majority of (big city) people dont actually own a house/appartment and many japanese companies pay half the cost of their employees accomodation expenses, add to that the fact that space is at a premium (people dont have the room to fill up their houses with junk) and that public transport is highly efficient(many people have no need to own a car) and what have you got left to spend your money on? Why mastermind Japan of course.

I don't believe that you'd have to be making a lot of money to own a Rolex watch. Maybe to teenagers it is well out of their range but I believe that any working middle class are able to afford a Rolex. This of course it only out of experience and observation of my surroundings.

Also regarding on what else to what else do you spend you money on other than MMJ thats really assuming they don't have a family or anyone to support AND that the individual is highly irrational with his spending.

I was mainly talking about younger people, as I doubt too many middle aged business men are walking around decked out head to foot in MMJ, so they wouldnt neccessarily have any family to support but Im not going to argue about the irriational spending, I still think you have to be a bit "irrational" to spend that much on a tshirt. As for rolexs, I dunno, I know nothing about watches, I guess it depends on the model and your salary, but you still have to have a fiar amount of disposable income to drop over 2 grand on a watch.

I cannot believe you guys actually buy this shit. Wasting 400 dollars on a t shirt is beyond dumb. They do have nice looking quality articles tho.
