Q - Why is this so expensive?
A - Things can only be made cheaply when either someone is underpaid or it's completely automated. Unfortunately, machines haven't taken over all labor yet. So in the mean time we pay a premium for high quality fabrics and labor. So while an average top may cost $5 for Forever 21 to make, we pay anywhere from $20-$30. That means on a $64 dollar top, profit maybe $30-40 which then must cover operating expenses (website fees, shipping containers, freight charges), taxes, and payroll. So end of the day profit could be closer to $3-6. If we did this for the money, we'd be in the wrong industry. We do this to make an amazing garment you'll love for years.
