Remember when we offered you insanely crazy discount from Andre 3000’s Benjamin Bixby clothing line on Gilt.com just a few days ago? Well, turns out that there’s a logical explanation to that. They’re not just promoting their stuff because get this; the Benjamin Bixby clothing line is going way under. The economic recession is hitting Andre 3000 and his label big time. The high-end designs demand extra attention to details, which made it very expensive to produce on a mass scale. So what they do is produce the pieces in small batches and sell it online through major retailers such as Barneys.
The Benjamin Bixby line has cut its prices since last week, and they cut big time, up to over 50%. It’s no good news for Andre, but we think it’s kinda good for you. Be sharp, look around online and if you’re lucky, you might get a $1,495 leather jacket for only $600-ish.
We hope Benjamin Bixby survives, though. Been a tough time for all of us.
