Posted March 11, 2020 09:06:51When I bought my Gucci sunglasses at Gucci’s new flagship store in New York City, I was expecting the brand to go back to its roots, one that was inspired by the Italian designer’s iconic vintage glasses.
Instead, my excitement was met with disappointment.
Gucci’s sunglasses are now a $100,000 pricetag.
I bought them for $800 at Best Buy.
They’re a $600 pair at Walgreens.
And I was hoping for $2,000 for my pair.
My Gucci experience with Gucci has been one of the worst.
I have tried on Gucci glass, Gucci watches, Guccis.
And the brand’s glasses are a disgrace.
I’ve heard stories about Gucci employees trying to buy a pair of glasses in the store, and they’re always rejected.
Guccis are made from a single piece of glass that is not made from corrugated cardboard.
They are extremely fragile.
The glass itself is not the problem.
It’s the glue that holds them together.
A single piece has to be a perfect match.
And the glue is not available at every store.
Guys who wear Gucci Glass are constantly being rejected by people who know what they’re getting.
I once had a glass salesman in my store tell me, “I know how to make a Gucci.
But I have no idea how to get my customers to buy it.”
I told him that he needed to have a conversation with his customers first.
And he told me, “”Gucci Glass is going to be one of my biggest failures.
“After spending a month researching Gucci, I’ve found out the reason:The glass company is not making enough.
I can’t afford to buy more than 2,000 Gucci frames a year.
Gucci says that they’re trying to bring their business back to the 90s, but they don’t have enough money to do so.
They don’t even have enough to pay employees.
In the meantime, they are taking out loans on top of the sales tax.
So how can I afford to wear Gucci glasses?
First, I want to get rid of the lenses.
Gucci says they’re the only glass that will protect my eyes from the elements, which means I need to buy new ones.
I also want to buy my own glasses.
But there are no affordable alternatives.
The cheapest way to do this is to purchase a Gucciflior glass.
This is what I would do.
It costs $20,000, and I would be able to purchase an entire set for just $30,000.
That’s a big savings.
But I can never afford to purchase glasses that have no protection.
I’d be tempted to go with cheaper brands, like the Zara, if I could.
But then I’d need to shell out more money.
I’m not buying the Gucci eyewear for the money.
It would be nice to have it for the look, but I’m just not going to pay the $2 million for a pair.
But if you can’t find a pair for $1,200, I’m willing to pay $1 million for them.
What if I had to buy two sets?
The answer is no.
You have to go out and spend more money to buy glasses.
You’ll need to pay for a bigger-screen Gucci case.
You will have to spend a lot more for a Gucca lens.
That’s because Gucci is not a manufacturer.
It is a distributor.
And Gucci Eyewear is a distribution channel.
What does that mean for me?
I’m not an expensive Gucci shopper.
I’m buying Gucci for the looks, not the cost.
But Gucci will eventually lose its exclusivity.
The Gucci brand has become a joke.
If you’re going to buy Gucci Frames, go for a lower-priced pair.
You can find Gucci lenses on eBay for $20.
And when you do, you won’t be going back to a Guica.
