Pam voiced my view so clearly! The quality of so many articles of clothing has declined greatly over the years; which is why I believe there is a renewed interest in re-sale luxury clothing. I think luxury consumers are willing to pay more if the quality is there. Also, being a ‘middle-aged’ consumer, many of us are at the point in our lives where we don’t want to see our shoes, handbags, dresses, etc. on everyone walking down the street. Too many ‘luxury’ labels are manufacturing goods specifically for outlet shoppers or low-end shoppers; that dilutes our feeling of being dressed in something ‘special’.
