Nope - Don't think this business is going to take off...
I called Ghurka this week to discuss a few of their briefcase offerings. They are quite pricey but look quite beautiful IMO. The sales rep on the phone couldn't tell me exactly where the models I am interested in are produced but she is going to investigate for me.

I wore a 'Polo' suit (inexpensive) from Macy's when I was in Business School and interviewing for Finance jobs and...
I called them - they are having issues with gmail account addresses and their system in general. If you call them, they can manually send you one...
The bottom is a pic out of the Alden catalogue - just not a very good pic at all
