Sale Report: Present



The sales are definitely on and in full force in most shops around the world. On one hand, I don't like to see it, and definitely not too early as it hurts the industry, the brands and the retailers. On the other hand, I am a consumer and it is great to get a good deal. Lots of shops have heavily discounted merchandise, but Present has some of the best items in decent size runs that I've seen. These are a couple of items I've been eying up this fall, but there are many more to be found.

"I don't like to see it, and definitely not too early as it hurts the industry, the brands and the retailers."

Could you explain this a bit more thoroughly. I'm just confused how true this is. To what degree are brands and retailers "hurt." People should without a doubt always be rewarded for hard work, but at what point is this ridiculous. However, I saw Hiroki N. from Visvim driving around a pristine vintage bronco on Union LA's blog and he's always balling. Same with Shin, Tet, Fujiwara.... You and your team are doing well enough to travel the globe and I saw your boot collection posted a few weeks back and your boots alone were totaling around 3,000usd...You guys apparently aren't struggling by any stretch from what I can see.

I'm not trying to attack you guys either. As I said, hard works deserves its reward. I'm just defending my own position as someone who needs sales to get the expensive products they like.

My point in this is; are sales truly bad for business only because the slice into already deep pockets? As someone who struggles to afford the products they love I live for and need sales. I'm a student with a VERY low income. The whole attitude just seems pretentious, if the only reason sales are bad for business are because it lowers seemingly lucrative price margins. Granted, I know very little about the industry, but I'm curious. That's why I'm asking.

I appreciate what you guys do and your passion and can relate, I'm just saying it seems like the pricing of good products is aimed at a culture of creating an air of exclusivity and keeping things from people who genuinely love good products for the sake of protecting profits.
