   Let me know if they shrink a bit ... I may pick some up then as well. Did you get the Non-Iron or the regular ones? I imagine the non-iron ones will be less comfortable ...
  The BB Extra Slim Fit 14.5 will definitely be looser than a H&M Small. I have a 34" chest and when I tried the BB Extra Slim fit it was an okay not great fit. H&M fits better for me. 
I like this JV jacket on Yoox but have heard conflicting things on his sizing. I pretty skinny ... 34 inch chest. Anyone have ideas on whether a S will fit? Also is it safe to assume thats its JV Collection and not JV Star USA? Yoox seems to have a quite a bit of JV priced very reasonably.   http://www.yoox.com/item.asp/tskay/451A93B0/cod10/41279527RP
  You're right about that ... but then again ... the label only says "Made in Italy", and not "Made in Italy by natural born Italian citizens of Italian ancestry" :p    Seriously though ... I read the NYT article ... but I don't think it's a big issue in terms of scale ... The article only talks of 1 city and I think most reputable brands would be wary of peddling the produce of illegally exploited labour. 
  This is no longer true. The Italian parliament passed the Reguzzoni-Versace Law in 2010, which states that all item carrying the "made in italy' label must have met stringent conditions. Just doing the finishing in Italy is not enough.    http://www.italymag.co.uk/italy/business/made-italy-law-tightened
  I'm not American and I don't live in the US, but very generally speaking if I was offered 2 otherwise identical looking items I would prefer the one that said 'Made in USA' or 'Made in Italy' over one that said Made in China. 
Nan can clear this up but if I remember correctly he said that finding manufacturers for waxed canvas bags in the US was an issue. If that's the case then you can't blame Everlane for making this in China.    Made in China does not by itself mean that it's of inferior quality. One of SFers all time favourites are made in Macau - APC New Standards. 
  All good points. Especially the last one :) 
  I assume the design and quality on Everlane's weekender is better than Target's $25 or Topman's $40 weekenders.    Is $95 good value for the weekender? I haven't seen it in person so I don't know but the people who have seem to think it's a fair price. I do wish it was made in the US though.
