The price on this jacket, $148, is outrageous for what it is. It’s the same price as the Hustle Jacket which has many technical features and is outerwear. So far we’ve seen price increases in the Stride Jacket and Define Jacket and a very big price tag on the new Challenge Jacket that just came out. This is a very disappointing trend I’m seeing as a regular shopper considering the qualities issues most of us have seen this past year, particularly with the Strides. I understand that in light of the down economy most retailers are seeing the same reduced quality in fabrics and manufacturing and are increasing prices across the board. However, as a consumer this just reminds me to be a bit more frugal in my choices and really assess the value of a garment, price per use/closet versatility and quality of construction. This one was a pass for me. How do you regular lulu shoppers feel about these higher priced items?
**Spotted on markdown: Run: Dash LS Lilac, Static Wish and Static Persimmon on for $69 – I passed on these as I’m hoping for somewhere in the $45 range.
Coal and Black Roses Print Live Simply Crewneck Tee tried this on today as well and the print is very subtle on it.
