i'll be damned. there's a whole lotta money out there, huh? handcrafted baseball gloves for $8,500. suits for $20,700. and crocodile jackets for $129,500. and only 38% of the flagship's store were from its men's line but chavez is sure that men will travel from all over the world since it is the only men's-only hermes boutique. he adds that several of his "made-to-measure" clients have already made appointments.
the luxist.com article goes on to say that hermes clients are recession-proof (no kidding) and 2009 figures showed a 8.5% increase in revenue for the company.
must be nice. must be real nice.
(lyfe's "must be nice" is playing in my head. better yet, dmx: "you've been eating long enough now stop being greedy ... give to the needy." lol.
