Makes sense to me. They rapidly over expanded in the US and the quality and brand suffered and now they are trying to fix the situation. Also, Signore Borrelli is no longer in jail.
Why do you say they overexpanded in the US? Good to know that Signor Borrelli is out of jail.
I got the impression that alot of tailors left since the quality of the shirts have gone down as reported on these parts.
