Fashion Update: How to Get $90 Lucky Brand Jeans at Costco for Just $17, Sort Of – The Miracle of “Urban Star”

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

All right, work with me here, people. Them stretchy 361 Vintage Straight jeans from Lucky Brand go for $90, right?

Or you can get them at the Lucky Outlet for like $60 or so. The outlet version has a different button but otherwise it’s the real deal.

Or you can get that very same outlet version at Costco #144 for like $36.

Now here’s the kicker. Costco also sells “Urban Star” jeans that are the same exact thing, pretty much, for just $16-something.

Look at the pockets – Lucky in the background, Urban Star in the foreground:

(Or you can get Urban Star from a reseller at Amazon for $25.)

So this means that the markup for Lucky is like 500%?

News to me.

Anyway, I guess what I’m saying is that, just as Soylent Green is people, Urban Star is Lucky Jeans.

Anyway, what Geary needs is to lose its useless median strip.

IMO.

And the Big New Tenant at the “Flagship” 800 Market Building Right Next to the Union Square Apple Store is … GameStop?

Get all the deets below.

Do people still buy video games in a box and then go home and shove a rotating disc into their PCs? Really? News to me.

Anyway, here’s the new sign:

You’d think a big retailer could just slot right in there and make money what with all the foot traffic at Fourth and Market, but I guess the particularities of doing business in the 415 make 800 Market a garden of bones.
