Thread: m.a+ (Maurizio Amadei)

    I was considering the boots (they look like motorcycle boots) as my foray into the world of Continues/CCP/Ann D./etc. type footwear. Perhaps I'll just stick with NDC. The prices are fucktarded. I realize they can charge whatever they want; I also realize I'll probably pay the exorbitant prices anyways. I'm still gonna bitch.



    That hooded sweatshirt is pretty awesome though.

    I'm not trying to fully defend the pricing, but guys like MA+, CCP etc all operate with very few items being produced each season and thus limited distribution. To cover all their overhead and still make it profitable, they gotta charge more per item versus say Prada issuing the same thing.




    It's a double edged sword in a way though... small production volume gives you that absolutely amazing attention to detail that we see in these brands... while at the same time you end up paying out the ass for what you get (considering the actual material costs are a mere fraction of everything).




    Like mentioned in the CCP thread, these guys can charge whatever they want. It IS a business and if everything sells out season after season, why not continue to charge more and thus make it more profitable knowing you're still guaranteed that money?




    So Joey, the angled pocket/front pants by MA+ are already in stores????




    Cas, my prices were based totally on last season's offerings... with the pants then being around $1400 or so. I'm guessing the hooded sweatshirt will be the good buy of the season though!




    post up photos of your knit!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    the pants are not in stores as far as i know. i just thought the pants would be around the same price as past pairs of pants.

    Yea, you guys are probably right. I'm sure if anything, the prices are going to go up for next season as that seems to be the ongoing trend. :(

    Thanks Joey.

    That coat and the alpaca/cotton hoodie look amazing! I just might have to splurge on one....

    MA+ is growing on me very fast, the coat that Casius post is simply perfect, but unfortunately CCP high pricing pales in comparison

    that jacket is amazing, I kind of knew that it must've been posted here when I saw it on A's website ;)

    saw the jacket today. i actually tried it on, but it didn't fit me very well. maybe it's my body type? one major thing that sucks with it is the fact that it's not lined (could work well with the socal winter cas ;) ). $1700 to boot.

    sorry, didn't check! i was told that they run a little large however. however, do double check on the price. when i heard it i thought it wasn't THAT bad. hopefully i didn't mis-hear it.

    Yea, I'll give them a call sometime this week probably. Also, you said the fit was weird, how so? Is it really long?

    not really long per se. but it didn't fit right in the shoulders and looked boxy on me. mind you, i just tried on the one right off the rack so i might have benefited from a smaller size.

    Thanks a bunch Joey! Maybe a 50 will work for me then.
    Did you check out the hoodie while you were there?

    the hoody was pretty cool, but i prefer the aviator. the hoody has a v-neck that i wasn't too found of. the construction and materials were top notch though.

    Yea, it looks mighty warm too! I'm guessing though that it's in the $1500-1700 range.
