For $590?!?! XS
Here is the closes answer I could find... http://www.time.com/time/specials/2007/article/0,28804,1714683_1714625_1714287,00.html
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
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.
Credit goes to Milspex for explaining all of this.
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.
those jeans look nice. i like the one on the right more except for that godfather logo being on there.
