I agree, a basic understanding of global commodity chain production and a passing familiarity with local conditions around China makes the argument against Chinese-made goods pointless. Not to say that will ever hinder people posting in this thread from their almost seasonal China bashing.
That said, I find the lowest quality RRL stuff I've owned (weird patterns, uneven stitching, poor construction) almost always has a 'Made in Sri Lanka' tag.
