THANK YOU ONE AND ALL,
I will end my days tapping on SF wired up to machines in intensive care, which I survived last time, despite stopping breathing
The Rick N3B just has the right balance between cleanness and over the top details that makes it alluring. Attachment is a bit too clean for me as well - similar to the Rick exploder from Crust. Lad Musician's version that artishard has seems like the best option for $$, but that's up to y!jp to decide. I still hope I can get lucky and somehow find the Rick exploder in neoprene lamb
Re: care tags, I interned at a brand this summer that makes technical garments with various materials with various treatments, etc. and I handled a lot of the care tag creation/customs issues for their FW14 stuff.
Care tag mislabeling also might have to do with customs related stuff - it costs more to import certain fabrics/blends than others (as an incentive for certain companies to use domestic resources rather than ordering overseas) so, if it's not easily discernible that there's a certain percentage of cotton or cashmere or whatever, a lot of companies try to get around customs regulations to try and save money. Different fabrics also affect the classification of a garment ("woven shirt," "woven blended shirt"), which also affects import fees (this is why Chucks have that shitty felt on the bottom).
