This is Nuts

Might be a mistake. Or might be aimed at the unwary buyer.


Ever heard of "Tilly Hats"? For a long while they made them and charged a fortune. At the same time the exact same company owned a boat off shore that pounded out replicas by the thousands that sold for a tiny portion of the price. Everything made just the same. Just a different label and a tiny fraction of the price. They put out a product, and then were their own competition leaving absolutely no room anywhere for others to squeeze in. Brilliant idea.

I think this is an example of how wacky fur pricing can be. I'm sure the coat is made in China or wherever if they can sell it profitably at $1995. But if they can sell it profitably at $1995 just what kinda markup are they using when offering it at $3995??? It was offered on their web site at $1995 all season (so the price is not an end of season deal that could potentially explain the site to site pricing discrepancy).


I want a black fox or brown fox coat (okay, forgot the "or" ... it's "and" LOL), so have been tempted to order this one. But the way the sleeves appear to "bunch up" at the wrist (plus the price point) make me pause. It looks like a pretty nice coat ... But not necessarily a great coat.
