I did that little experiment and was right in about 4/5 cases when abroad.
Heh. I am not. Half Vietnamese, born in California, I'm afraid. Wasn't aware they were seen as so distinctly German, though I suppose that makes sense, in a way. I think Silhouettes may be a bit more in style in the US, currently, but I don't really follow trends. Personally, I've been a little unhappy, actually, with my pair. The tension in the arms isn't balanced, which pushes them to one side. I really need to see what I can do with the warranty.
