Here's the link to NY Times article on Hugo Boss. Here're some of the quotes:The last quote is self-exeplantory, except that I don't think it'd make GA cringe.
Quote:To be sure, Hugo Boss looks for cost advantages outside Germany. It stitches clothing in Cleveland and Izmir, Turkey, as well as in a factory next to its headquarters here. This fall, Boss will sell its first men's suit made entirely in China; Mr. SÃ¤lzer is thinking about setting up a plant there.
Quote:"What drives us is not a love of fabric, but a desire to move product through a distribution system," said Boss's head of production, Werner Lackas, with a candor that would surely make Giorgio Armani cringe.
