Cost per wear (CPW) is the cost of the item divided by the number of times you wear it. The lower the CPW, the better. Here’s how it works:

In the above example, purchase price is based on a median purchase price of respective items - the actual purchase price could be higher or lower. # of wears for designer dress and trendy fast-fashion brand is pulled from anecdotal research and evidence from sources including Glamour.

Silver & Riley bags are made from high quality materials that are made to last. With proper care, our bags are meant to last a lifetime, hence, CPW could actually be lower.

In this calculation, we are using a modest 365 wears as many of our customers report using their bags daily throughout the year. Over the course of many years, this number will multiply and CPW will decrease.
