are the Bottega jeans raw denim? if so, it potentially get very expensive depending on the weight and quality of the fabric obtained from the looming process (usually the best comes from Japan).... so a high price on raw denim jeans makes more sense to me than a high price on some jeans made from nondescript denim that were then distressed/bleached/ripped. at least one of the two carries intrinsic value.

that said, I think $640 is way too much even if they are raw.

Well, I've been to a Bottega store once and the quality is MAJOR. Finest leathers, appropriately paid seamstresses, mostly good designs. A thing, that has bothered me is, that their shoes arent lined with leather, which is standard in this price-class.

I also have to defend Yohji. Though his prices are the highest of the highest the quality is impeccable. I'd live in a coat of his, if I could.

A label that seems to be really overpriced is Dior (Homme in particular). Cheap manufactured canvas bags are more expensive than the high quality leather ones from lanvin. And the t-shirts are now being produced in Turkey, but still cost 180€ a piece.

this is true. i must say i own a few things from bottega. i find them worth it. but i value both quality and exclusivity. however, don't turn over a price tag if you're faint of heart. they've positioned themselves as the hermes of italy and i'd have to say they've been pretty successful in doing that.

Oh don't get me wrong, i wasn't questioning the quality i was just pointing out that im not so shocked that a pair of jeans costs that much since everything is expensive... if that makes any sense

Your DSquared jeans are expensive and overpriced. I don't think any of the more casual pieces they offer are worth the tag. Plus, they are wayy too trend driven for me to bother investing in their pieces. He WOOD is a lovely fragrance, but it's not oil-based so it doesn't get the honor of saturating my skin. lol.

Not the most expensive one, but I think it's pricy. This Dries Van Noten shirt is £340.00 at Browns
