considering it's on his website and store, I'd say it's the same

Kapotas.com his Sacco? I wasnít aware, oops. I didnít even notice the logo at the top when clicking the link.

Whatís the best value for people looking for reasonable quality wool/wool-blend Kapotas?

I ended up getting a cheap wool kapoto from Valenti (Montgomery and Kingston) for $169 off the rack + approx $25 for alterations.
I'm not expecting it to be long lasting or durable, but didn't want to spend $500+

Getting a Shemtov kapota should be required for every chosson. Not for the kapota, but for the life-altering experience.

I went to yisroel Shemtov before my wedding but he didnít want to sell it to me after I told him that I wanted something slim fit and didnít want the kapota to reach my fit lol

Whatís the point of wearing a wool kapota?

I told you to go for the experience, not the kapota, so you got it without even needing to pay! Win win

If you're looking for rockbottom price silk and get what you pay for
https://kapotas.com/collections/kapotas-1/products/chinese-silk

This is probably the dame product that
was awful quality and Mendy would not let me buy it.

Every time I was buying they didn't have. Either my size wasn't available, and one time they had a different batch which was awful quality and Mendy would not let me buy it.

But they had it in stock and would gladly pocket $180 from an unsuspecting stranger in exchange for helping them clear out this shoddy inventory.

Perhaps, or go and try for yourself and see what he says. I think anyone willing to pay 180 for silk which is clearly labeled as "Chinese" and is visibly garbage, knows exactly what they are getting.

So then donít position it as MSRP $450 limited time offer, tell people itís a bad batch and let them decide. But that wonít sell, so letís mislead people and ignore the first question thatís asked when someone gets to heaven (HT Shabbos 31a).

Perhaps, or go to the store and see what he says before doling out accusations. You are the only human I've ever heard of who looks at a website msrp as a meaningful number. The average watch that sells for <$50 online has an msrp of >$500.

Even if the item is garbage, $180 is a fair price for a garbage kapota. The other stores that are selling silk for the same price are selling the same crap and no one thinks they're getting a bargain. Anyone buying a silk kapota knows they usually cost well over 4-500

Iím not doling out accusations, someone reported upthread that they were advised not to buy based on the quality, that isnít reflected at all in the COLlive ďcommunicated contentĒ article unless your reading-comprehension skills are in the @Yehuda57 league.

IOW, all Iím saying is that your report upthread doesnít seem consistent with the COLlive article, thatís it.

Go read your comment again. It was very harsh and definitely accused him of dishonesty.

There was no COL article mentioned here, and communicated content is an ad, not an article. Nothing dishonest about advertising a garbage kapote for $180 and not calling it garbage. That's a ridiculous standard to expect.

You're reading way too much into my friend advising me to pay more for better quality rather than pay bobkes for garbage.

The msrp on the website is what others on the avenue charge for similar garbage, and what they charged for it before going to clearance

Multiple friends were told when they asked about the cheapest one that they don't want it, not people they know personally
