Re: Apple prices .....handbags
Some leather goods really are in the "having a laugh...oh, you are very rich and stupid...worth every penny" variety, but companies like Mulberry and Dents really do put a huge amount of skilled labour into their products. The question is whether you want to pay for hand work or machine work. "Because I can" may even be a legitimate reason.
I'm pretty clear in my mind that anybody who pays hand work prices for machine work is a mug.
