$275 T-Shirt

"Value is not only quality, function, utility, channel of distribution," said Arnold Aronson, managing director of retail strategies for Kurt Salmon Associates and former chief executive officer of Saks Fifth Avenue. "Part of that value is a customer's appreciation for the luxury connotations of that item or that lifestyle or the brand or designer who has developed over years a certain cachet."

Good luck with that.

I read that article in the Chron yesterday. Out of my price range.

But then I'd pay 10 times that for a bike :-)
