Some ppl have been telling me that there are outlets. I didnt really understand, but someone said that there was a prada outlet up north. Does anyone else know if there are more outlets and can some1 also explain the concept of an outlet? Is the stuff there fake?

not fake, that would be illegal and the store wouldnt exist. outlets is merchandise from past seasons that didn't sell also some outlets have clothes which are specifically given to them only because there might be a defect. sometimes when you buy clothes youll find an inspection paper, someone inspects the clothes right after its made and if that person decides theres something wrong with it, itll be a reject and sent to an outlet.

Oh ok now i get it, ok do designers have outlets especially for their clothes? Like someone told me there was a Prada outlet in Chicago, but i would expect it just to be a normal store that sells many designers

^Each designer has their own outlet store. Maybe you're thinking of an outlet mall.

I dont think theres a prada outlet in chicago, if you like prada why dont you hit up the prada boutique on oak street when the sales start, i dont think many people buy anything from there, youll probably have a good assortment to choose from since you seem like youd be a larger size. sometimes you can get a better deal on stuff on sale rather then going to a specific designers outlet store.

^ then why are you trying to find a prada outlet if it doesnt fit you in the first place? and ive never heard of the biggest sizes in prada selling out first, that is totally unheard of.
