|Transparent Pricing: Shedding Light On The Real Value Of A Shirt, And Brand
What’s the true value of a brand? For some, it is the authenticity of its individually priced pieces.
Take a black-and-white jacquard skirt at the European company Honest By. The skirt’s fabric cost the company $56. The thread came to about 57 cents, and the care tag, 37 cents. All in, the skirt cost $172 to produce; yet the figure on the price tag is three times that — $516.
