lotus originals is ultra amusing.
$76 for a t-shirt that says "lotus" on it.
$108 for an unbranded white polo.
$208 for unbranded tan trousers.
$810 for an unbranded "zero seams" coat.
all without a designer attached?! and it's not a joke? i'd half expect dany bahar to be the UPS delivery guy and jump out to put a "you're a tool" pin on me if i bought something from lotus originals.
when i pay $100 for a shirt, it's because it's quality and designed by a recognizable name that's not only fashionable, but also stands behind the product. lotus originals has absolutely no credibility in either field. and i'm not complaining about the price because if it was something i wanted, i'd pay it.
now, regarding the prices. the leather jacket is very pretty, i grant you. would i pay $1373+shipping for it? lol. i can walk into dior, dolce, or gucci and have my pick of garment for $1400. putting lotus originals on that level is insulting.
I actually JUST received one of their Classic T-Shirt's (dark blue) from my Aunt in England for Christmas. Wearing it now.
1) It's a nicer heavier cotton shirt. Somewhere along the lines of a 6.1oz Haynes ringspun t-shirt.
2) The Lotus logo is about 1" very well stitched
3) It's serialized... 11450
4) It's made in Turkey. Just like a lot of retailers (Armani, Polo, Banana Republic, etc...)
It's not worth 70.
If I was in England I would pay 30 for it. Hell, even the shirts sold at concerts don't go for $70USD. The biggest price-gouging-licensing-gonna-take-all-yo-money group out there (NFL) keeps most of their shirts at or under $30. Really, the most I'd pay normally for a stitched logo tee would be $25. If it was something I really wanted, then I would go up to $45 (nice logo, on travel, in their flag store, etc...).
