Hiya! My first post here in WAYWRN, and also just slowly discovering my interest in men's fashion, so please be tolerant if I'm making any amount of elementary faux-pas here.

The thing that is a bit concerning is that, despite Debaufre being made in switzerland, they distribute via the US,...

Since this thread has partially shifted from replicas to hommages, I think I can pose my question here.
