Robert Kardashian’s foray into fashion has failed miserably, I know you’re shocked. The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star launched a line of high-priced ‘Arthur George by Rob Kardashian‘ socks, which were sold at Neiman Marcus. Rumor has it – the socks are set to be dropped from shelves if sales don’t improve.
â€œRobâ€™s socks sold around the Christmas holiday, but since then no one has been really buying them,â€ a source at the Neiman Marcus store in Beverly Hills said.
â€œWe actually had to ship a bunch out to other stores because they werenâ€™t moving at all. To be honest, a lot of customers bought them more as a gag gift. At this point it doesnâ€™t look like weâ€™re going order anymore.â€
The 26-year-old priced his socks at $30 per pair, and each were colorful and ugly if you ask me.
In a statement, Neiman Marcus defended Arthur George by Robert Kardashian, saying it was â€œone of the best selling in the menâ€™s sock categoryâ€ at the store.
â€œIt is common practice to send inventory above projected demand to a store in advance of a personal appearance,â€ Ginger Reeder, Vice President of Corporate Communications, told RadarOnline.com. â€œWe then redistribute the excess to other stores after the appearance.
â€œThe Arthur George by Robert Kardashian sock line has proven to be very popular with our customers.
â€œCurrently 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 Fatherâ€™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.â€
