I don't think how many studs determines the cost... at least not for high end bags, ie: MJ, Gucci, Chanel, etc.

You'd be amazed to know the FOB of some higher end leather bags.

Yes, you do get quality leather and hopefully quality craftsmanship, but you're paying a huge mark up.

I think these would've been a nice addition to his MbyMJ line... I dunno, they're still not my cup of tea... but i'm not very 80's... sweet... or punk.

I assumed this was for Marc by Marc, not mainline. They don't look like 2k bags...Maybe $500.

It's the price that a factory charges a certain brand to make a bag... from the materials, to labor, to shipping...

It's the first price... before all of the wholesale, and retail.. and markup, blah blah blah.

Cool, I was wondering about what that meant too... I wonder how much this bag costs to make?

You know, I read an article about Gryson bags a while ago, and it said that the Skye bags wholesale at $200 a pop. But the same bags are being sold at Kitson for $745...
