I agree. I've only seen jeans that were Made in Japan, as well. All the shirts I've had, from WAY back when Jil designed through Prada, were made in Italy. In the old days, some leather goods and items were made in Germany, but I've not seen much Japan-made stuff outside of denim (and most of that was in s/s 05 and thereafter, when Jil came back). As for shoes, when Prada had them, they made them in their facilities, and then when raf took over, they started to produce a few models with Church's. Now, as you mentioned, I'm assuming it's all in-house (except the Lattanzi ones).
