What's with the stitches at the bottom of the wallet in the first picture? Did Tumi sew it that sloppily or am I just seeing things? That's not their usual quality.


Usually stuff you buy at the outlet is stock that has minor defects in it, thats why they sell it much cheaper at the outlets

I thought the reason the outlets are cheaper than the in season stores is because. like when you look at the Neiman marcus store
you see ravishly marble floors fancy glass counters, 3 level floors, 2 escalators and a cafe.
when you look at the outlet 1 level, the employees don't wear dressy clothes, regular counters, tile floors and no cafe, no escalators,

when you look at Banna republic obviously they'res no 3 levels or cafe but compared to the Banna republic outlet obviously it has
fancier floors , counter tops the employees wear dressier clothes I thought this was the reasons outlets were lesser expensive than the in season stores?

nope, he is correct. Outlet stores sell merchandise that is flawed and deemed unsuitable for sale at premium stores. Sometimes it can be as simple as a stitch gone wrong or a label askew but either way they lead to significant discounts. They are organized to make it feel like you are getting a good bargain, even if it is at a cost to quality. It's all on the responsibility of the consumer to choose which type of store most interests them and what they are willing to sacrifice in the name of clothing and other material goods.

Premium stores like neiman marcus and nordstroms and such have to have all those things listed to justify such a high price tag and create the illusion of luxury the second you walk into them regardless if the merchandise they are selling adheres to that belief. Also people who frequent neiman marcus wouldnt usually deem lower end establishments unworthy of their business and furthermore high end stores are more geared to making customers feel like they deserve expensive things rather than they just a desire to have nice things. Its very manipulative on a psychological level. I for one find it fascinating
