    They are fancy clothes that appeal to the eye, but what makes them so worthy of being $800-$1,000. Do they feel super smooth, do stains come out easy, will they never rip or tear? If not any of those then the brand is over rated (no defamation intended) but what can possibly make the close be in that high of demand? I am an Ed Hardy dude so I like more wild and outrageous art could that be why i don't find it so great?

    Just like luxury cars, you're paying for the perceived value. D&B clothes are probably made in the same shops as Ed Hardy clothes.

    There's a common bond in owning D&G pants per se and a pair of cool Ed Hardy briefs. It's how they make you feel.
    There's other brands out there that do a nicer job at making the male physique look classy, rather than showy.
    Just my .02 cents.

    Hold on.

    You're slamming Dolce & Gabbana (D&G) prices, but endorse Ed Hardy (a fad that passed years ago) which is notorious as being overpriced? At least with D&G you can get items made with better quality materials that were not sewn together in a sweatshop.

    I really wish there where clothes that had the quality at a reasonable mark up, it seems the higher the quality, the higher the markup (in percentage), designer brands are known for marking their products up ~500%, it would be great to find a company who was much more reasonable.

    I usually buy brooks brothers for things like cashmere sweaters and some jackets. I feel like a $400-$500 brooks brothers sweater is unlikely to be of much lesser quality than a $1k-$2k Gucci, but it's hard to know when you don't see the factory or know exactly where the material is coming from.

    Ridiculous to pay those designer prices.
    I got my best suit for practically nothing.

    I shop at Target, Walmart, and various skate/surf shops. So take my comments about fashion with a grain of salt. icon_biggrin.gif

    1st off I'm in Tennesse for college and I don't guy by fashion trends because I wear what I want to F#@*ING wear, not what the TV, company, media, or any superficial idiot tells me to wear, I like Ed hardy and wear it because it looks good to me, on me, and it's apart of who I am. So before you judge me get your facts straight, and don't try me again.

    Bragging rights. That's about it and that's only if someone really cares.

    It's more like an Image thing! I've only been in their store like twice! One of my ex gay friend got a jacket for like $700 something from there! Lol, I like their underwear line and male models! Italians live for fashion anyway, look at all the Italian labels, D&G, Gucci, Ferragamo...etc

    You are not into fashion trends, but you latched onto Ed Hardy—a fashion trend that has come and gone? You think you're Mr. Rebel? Mr. Outsider? But you're wearing Ed Hardy?

    If the clothes fit you and you like the designs—good. Wear all the Ed Hardy you want. I don't care. But don't think you can get away with slamming the high prices of designer fashions without being confronted with the fact that Ed Hardy is just as culpable, but on a lower scale.

    Nothing at all. If a person actually judged me on what brand of clothing I wore, they would not be my friend or potential date. I wear what I think looks good and is comfortable. What a concept, I know.

    Actually not true. Ed Hardy shit is made in china.

    Most D&G is made in Italy or parts of Europe.

    D&G make nice clothes in my opinion. Generally classic but with a bit of quirkiness. Are they worth retail? No. Not unless it is affordable to you. But you can get the stuff quite a bit cheaper.

    I do think that, if it is feasible to do so, there is something nice about supporting brands that don't manufacture in China etc.

    Creature a price is a price that can get slammed, not necessarily the product, but I will slam a price alright, now I don't need to waste my time with someone who's one of "your kind"

    It depends on the piece. There are certain couture pieces which are unique and look good on me.
