      With a permanent collection and direct-to-you sales, we don't have wholesale markups, deadstock, sales or discounts. The traditional retail price shows what we'd have to charge if we sold our garments through multi-brand stores (wholesale) - 6x the landed cost. Instead, our markup is between 2.5-4.5x landed cost depending on product and country characteristics. It covers the cost of our garments and a lot more: VAT, cost of sales (shipping, warehousing, payment, web systems etc.), marketing, admin (salaries, rent, product development etc.) and financial costs, while maintaining a slim profit to keep investing in our mission.

      The Archive

      With a permanent collection we have no seasonal sales. However, at times manufacturing deviations occur that don't pass our rigorous quality controls, resulting in Second Grade products. And other times, our incremental updates on our permanently available garments are so significant, that we have stock left of an Expired Version. The Archive allows us to offer these garments at lowered rates, making sure they come to good use while offering a rare opportunity to invest in unworn ASKET essentials at a lowered price.
