Paul Smith is really expensive too. I have to say though manufacturing in Europe or America is crazy expensive, people just don't realize. There's also crushing duties on clothing coming into the states.

TBH I thought much of Paul Smith and Burberry stuff was made in cheap labour third world countries these days, to maximize profits. See also Ralph Lauren. Friend gave me a Paul Smith shirt once, sure it was made here in China.

Quite.

Well I went into Paul Smith the other day to buy socks, a lot of the ties and knitwear were labeled made in England or made in Italy.

Not always a favorite because of the military styling on a lot of their stuff but quality I would say is about middle of the road compared to other designers. Also, don't see the point of getting anything else besides coats and jackets from Prorsum.

and shoes!

nod[1].gif Very true I think.

Burberry had a serious public image and perception problem with being associated with chav culture. So they went designer and thus expensive. And raincoats alone wasn't enough to keep them going. They now do very well with the brand whoring new money in SE Asia, thank you very much.

There's another recent thread "Is a Burberry coat worth $2000"? Think the answer was a resounding NO!
