So how do Seal and the Olsen twins do it? I want a leather jacket from Carol Christian Poell. What now?

All I can figure out online is that you have to bookmark a bunch of online retailers, ebay etc. and wait around until you happen to stumble upon the style/size you need and plunk down the cash and hope it clears customs when it's shipped to you. Sounds pretty lengthy and inefficient... the company website is impractical and is obviously not trying to sell anything. Is it just the way with niche / high end makers that combing retailers and forum-sellers is all you're left with? No point in trying to get to the source?
