This Gili vest went from $279.00 to $334.00! How many changes did they make?

Maybe it's a joke...if not...it should be.

I call these 'collector's items.'

That is, they will collect dust in the warehouse when no one is crazy enough to purchase.

They've increased the prices on almost all of the GILI items, even year old inventory, some by quite a bit. What's changed is that they think we're stupid. Wink Or super gullible.

I'd say they've ""jumped the shark!"" I really don't get it. It's very strange.

No worries, they won't get my money....GILI is NOT DESIGNER...it is a QVC Brand, if I'm pay that kind of money it gonna by a "better" designer.

It's a marketing strategy to raise prices to morph into a premiere brand. That's what they have done with Judith and that's what they will do with GILI. There is evidence that this target market branding strategy is effective. Price can fuel a product’s luxury status, as evidenced by “Veblen goods.” Some high-status goods, like couture clothing, luxury cars or designer jewelry, lead to an increase in demand due to the high price tag. The higher the price, the more people want it because they perceive a higher value and better quality.

ECBG, the price of leather probably went up when they re-ordered it.
