I hung out with a friend last night, and she gave me a little gift: Beatles socks from Bloomingdales! They have an Abbey Road silhouette.

So I can say with certainty there is at least one affordable Beatles item at Bloomingdales - they're $10. And my friend told me to check back in a few weeks, because Bloomingdales regularly marks down their merchandise.

It was only set up over the last couple of years (I think) for illegal emigrants (mainly Chinese) :)

When I first read Bloomingdales, I thought the prices were going to be outrages for the socks. They want like $150 I believe for silk pockets squares.

Was watching a documentary on prostitution in Britain the other day (don't ask) and apparently there's a brothel across from Abbey Road...

With it being London (or just the fact it's a city, really), I could've guessed there would be one nearby. Interesting to know, anyway...

$10? Wow. Never thought I'd be able to say that I can afford to shop in Bloomingdales! :D

$10 for 1 pair of socks!!!

 

You can 5 pairs for £5 in places (tho not Beatles ones).

I said I could buy them - I'm sure I have a tenner somewhere - not that I ever would spend that much money on a pair of socks. It would be nice to see the four lads everytime I look down though :D

:( Maybe because it was on offer in that shop only? Old stock or something? I wasn't going to buy them anyway, even at that really cheap price!

Yeah, I was surprised not to have heard of the socks before (which I'm proudly wearing today). I guess they don't want to encourage you to buy the low-price items. :-P

Don't forget the $8.98 shipping cost. You'd think that with charging nigh-on a thousand dollars for socks that you'd get free p&p.

If you search online you find some really weird prices for Beatles products like books going for $350 new when they cost £20 upon first release. Not as insane as the socks but still.

^^ Don't I recall someone sometime singing some song that goes something like "Help!"

We may have reached that point. :-)

I'd always have a real Beatle over a clone. If the offer ever comes I will swap the clone for the real Ringo.

Real Beatles socks from ebay for like $7 on fake, expensive Beatles. If we get cheap Beatle clones, they might malfunction, so we should get somewhere in between or expensive.
