Right, and US stockists don't carry the entire line either. But UK was more to point of ordering from abroad in general.

Well, the general public's easily impressed and not really a metric most of us would want to go by and imperfect Herning's already better than the average cardi. But my whole complaint of the contemporary button is based on an aesthetic of NOT drawing immediate attention. One of the cultural problems is equivalent to what's been happening in the music and 'audiophile' industries for many decades now, what's known as the Loudness Wars. Who can be louder, in effect, compromise quality for quantity, to force impression. I see it as endemic to many of the gimmick-based clothes of contemporary designers. The worst of which are the SFers who dress hobo, dyslexically, or dissonantly to gain attention, then turn around and say they're being "ironic" in a faux-philosophical rubbish way others don't "understand." On a more simple level, with the Chinese self-admitting in the other thread, of a repressed upbringing appears since they couldn't rebel as a teenager, they're now rebelling as an adult. I could go on but you guys get the point, hopefully.
