Here's a good thread http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...ghlight=fullum

I'm sure Doc is way too gentlemanly to even imply such a thing. FWIW, IMHO, if you find any pair of...

I think pattern matching when possible, because sometimes it is not, is a sign that the smaller details are being paid attention to and therefore a sign of quality. I also think it looks very cool.

Well I do and I'm only 41. I'm with kolecho on this. Whether or not it was the truth, Japanese products in the 70's had the same stigma that Chinese products have today and IMHO it was deservedly so.
