You left out Japan in your timeline. They had production in Japan. Also I think I gotta disagree. First, just because it's made in China, doesn't mean it's shitty, it just means that Ralph's being an asshole by spending the least he can while charging the most he can. A lot of their pieces though, the heritage inspired tweed vest and jackets, the quality of their knits and cashmere pieces, the ridiculous leathers, and the fact that they use pretty damn good denim when...
