    One has to hope that the current date has something to do with that.

    The answer to the W in WTF is in the very existence of this thread.

    FWIW, today I wore a pair of Ben Sherman seersucker shorts that originally retailed for $100. I found them at Marshals for $35.

    Their prices may be expensive compared to mass produced store items, but I have found their quality to be top-notch. You can always find cheaper clothes (e.g. Walmart), but it is harder to find well made clothing that also has style. I probably wouldn't fill my closet full of $85 pairs of shorts, but I think being able to fill in holes and/or update a wardrobe with items at that price-point is more realistic for most people. I've bought jeans and pants from Bonobos...and they are hands down some of my favorite new additions.

    I was just pointing out that the use of that particular idiom has become cliche.


    It's the Dappered version of EPIC.

    It's an idiom, not a cliché. There are only so many ways of saying something was a deal, was a steal, was a real deal, real steal, bargain, a real bargain basement steal deal, etc!

    I guess im used to things being marked high and then artificially properly priced via continuous sales...i.e. BR, Express, etc.

    This is at least the 4th thread I've read where some referred to getting something "for a song" as Joe once referenced in a Dappered post.


    cliché ?[klee-shey, kli-] Show IPA

    Part of Speech: noun

    Definition: overused, hackneyed phrase

    @Jordan, to say it is an insult to intelligence is very extreme. While I also have a hard time paying much for shorts, it's mostly a mental equation.


    Material is only a portion of the cost and they aren't quite exactly half the material since you obviously are still getting pockets and such. The main thing is that the labor on both is exactly the same - its as much work to make a pair of pants as it is shorts, the hemline doesn't change that.


    I don't like paying a lot for shorts but I do think it's 90% in our head that they should be so much cheaper than a pair of trousers. I don't usually buy $85 pants, either.
