One reader has asked her store about the price increase and was told that the Micro Stripe Scuba’s (previously released in December/January at $98) are now priced higher then the solids because of a more ‘expensive process’ to create the pattern and that the rising cost of cotton is behind the $30 increase. Solid Scuba’s are now priced at $108. I wonder what true ‘Special Edition’ scuba’s will be marked up to when something as basic as a micro stripe pattern gets a $30 increase. I find it totally outrageous that previously produced hoodies are getting re stickered at the higher prices. What would something like the Pillow Scuba or the Vest Scuba be priced at with all of the extra seam detailing on it?
How do you feel about the $30 increase? Will you be buying Scuba Hoodies at these prices?
