Some of you are so fucking stupid. This is coming from Berman himself:
I hate to correct you, but I feel the need to step in here, since the last thing I want is people thinking that Level 1, or Jiberish, for that matter, is making a pile of cash off of any of the items we/they sell.
If they were producing thousands of these hoodies and crews, I'm sure the production cost might go down to $15/$20, but thats just not the case. The reality of it is that production runs are exceptionally small, and for the unique fabrics and designs that we run with, the prices are extraordinarily high... we price our gear in order to cover our costs, and thats what its all based on.
I know for a fact that Jiberish hasn't made a red cent of profit at this point- they've worked their asses off for years, at other jobs, to put money into their line and their company, and are just trying to grow their business as best they can.
Honestly, the prices are fair, and comparable to what you'd pay for high-quality constructed, VERY limited-edition gear. If that's your thing, like I know it is for more then a few people out there, then go for it and pull the trigger, if not, that's completely understandable.
Either way, no one is ripping anyone off here... and for those purchasing Level 1/Jiberish, or Jiberish gear, its a great way to get some unique clothing that makes a statement, and supports some of the hardest working people in the industry. Not a bad thing...
