I thought that you were implying that a lot of the readers have a small sample size of stores. Sorry if I read that wrong. My point is that while there are craploads of labels, only a small fraction actually get any play. There are some regional differences (for example, the minimalism of Common Projects seems more appealing to North Americans and Northern Europeans than Italians), and Santoni is pretty much in every store in Italy, while their distributon abroad is relatively limited; and Marlboro Classics is popular in Canada and Europe, but I've never seen it in the US. However, any boutique, catering to a specific demographic, carries a lot of the same stuff. I don't know whether or not this is true in Asia. Just don't have a good enough grasp of the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, market.
