they should open up shop in Vancouver, target the 19-36 female demographic of Asian,Caucasian decent.

Guaranteed sales increase of 500%.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Sample Sale is Better. See all of those jeans from Holt are from sample sale which you could get for only 70-80 dollars... instead of paying 250-350 +taxes

A rip off....

So yea I will vote for a sample sale n Vancouver I'm pretty sure it will be crazy.....

Global economy is doing horrible and US economy is on the verge of collapse. The last thing people would want to spend their hardearned money on is a pair of $200+ jeans.

In these economic times $250+ pairs of jeans are not realistic.

You will probably see a lot of different luxury type items and companies go under in the coming years, I have no doubt about it.

I like R&R washes thou. They are unique and stylish + exclusive unless you buy pairs that are sold to discount like the one in Nordstrom Rack and Costco
