    hey man,

    I know youre triggered but just for reference sake, the store Im with at the current moment tripled their order for SS18 because the season was on fire with a bunch of new products. I do not know whats up with vertice but they sort of also failed me this season because they did not order my size for shoes so I kind of understand what you mean, but that is more of a vertice issue than a boris one if you ask me.

But retailers told me since BBSNY depend hugely on their web-store which is in US, their price is significantly higher than all EU stores. And BBSNY thinks it is unfair to them. Somehow Boris think all the stores should follow BBSNY price if its non-EU. Therefore we non-EU customers can't enjoy the price without VAT. Retailers from EU and other countries who rely hugely on their web-store suffer from this. Non-EU customers stop buying because of the overpricing of BBS(even non-EU price). We just dont understand, not until I go to a store and ask. Big retailers drop them or reduce their order therefore.
    I ordered 3 sneakers from Vertice not just for myself but also for my friends. They will be so disappointed . Thanks you BBS for making a mess.
    Faust, why dont you put your feet in my shoes and think about it yourself. You paid the deposit 6 months ago and got nothing in return. Why dont I invest the money? That's complete bullshxt. It is like BBS borrows money without paying interest. paying you back in 6 months.
    Ah, I understand your frustration better if you put down a deposit. Still, I am not sure you are getting a full story. I don't see why BBS would cancel Vertice's order for no reason. Anyway, I think it's a complicated story - people can shop around now all over the globe, so US stores are at a disadvantage on pricing. I hear stories from all directions, and I have the ability to put myself in many shoes and understand the frustration on all sides. That's the nature of the capitalist system if we want to go all the way to the bottom of the thing. Chanel has been normalizing prices across the globe for years now, just to give you one, much bigger example.

    Hello Trigger,
    I meant those retailers who rely hugely on web store, i dont think japanese retailers rely a lot on web stores selling BBS.
    And i meant BBS removed the whole order of sneakers in one particular from vertice. I know vertice suffers as well. Not just sneakers, some other mainline item as well

    Faust,
    Thats not complicated story at all. For your info, spy emails were sent to my local retailer store. They ask for price of BBS item, if they got any discount,etc. And a week later, my local retailer got a warning email from BBS team. Apart from this, BBSNY intentionally asked visitors(multiple) from my country, what price range or discounts their local store, which is my local retailers were giving them. Stores avoid to put non eu price on websites.

    The whole thing sounds weird, but I've heard grumblings from Ink even from a couple years ago about BBS, though most of the time I just hear people grumble about mainline. 11 seems to be doing ok in terms of stockists, but mainline has so few stockists around the world. I'm visiting L'armoire soon, I'm curious if they have any stories too!

    BTW, can someone explain what happens to unsold inventory if a brand dictates the price? Can the store not reduce prices at all? Seems a bit unfair if they take the risk of inventory but can't control their prices.

    /\ BBS seems to be inconsistent with the sale price topic. Some retailers aren't allowed to go over 20% off and some retailers will tell you that BBS doesn't go on sale at all. I believe the the 20% off may be the most accurate answer because thats what BBSNY adheres to.
    I contacted a store that had some merch from 4-5 seasons ago and it was still full priced.
    I emailed to see if it was going on sale and they said they are not allowed to put BBS on sale. I don't think it would be the decision of the retailer to let merchandise just sit for 2-3 years, gathering dust, without putting it on sale. I only assume its written in a contract that they are no allowed to discount the brand.
