In case you were wondering where Rob Kardashian fits in with the whole Kardashian/Jenner empire, he has his own sock line. He calls it Arthur George and it is (not) selling at Neiman Marcus currently. Have you seen these socks? If not, click here for an example.
These socks are overpriced at $30 per pair and they are completely atrocious looking. Despite all of that, the Kardashians think that they can slap their names on anything and sell it. So, with that in mind, we are left with Arthur George by Robert Kardashian, selling exclusively at Neiman Marcus. The only problem? People are merely buying this crap to give away as gag gifts.
A snitch at the Beverly Hills Neiman Marcus said, “Rob’s socks sold around the Christmas holiday, but since then no one has been really buying them. We actually had to ship a bunch out to other stores because they weren’t moving at all. To be honest, a lot of customers bought them more as a gag gift. At this point it doesn’t look like we’re going order anymore.”
Doing damage control, Neiman Marcus has addressed this KRAP. They said in a statement that the product is “one of the best selling in the men’s sock category.”
Furthermore, the statement said, “It is common practice to send inventory above projected demand to a store in advance of a personal appearance. We then redistribute the excess to other stores after the appearance. The Arthur George by Robert Kardashian sock line has proven to be very popular with our customers. Currently we are carrying the socks in all 41 Neiman Marcus stores as well as at neimanmarcus.com, have just placed a large reorder in anticipation of Father’s Day and have a personal appearance with Rob scheduled next month in our Las Vegas store. In addition, we have several personal appearances scheduled for the fall.”
Are they serious? Who buys this stuff?
