It appears they have at least part of it under control. I'm sure these guys are familiar with other MIUSA brands that also source domestically and it's usually not too hard to get names in this incestuous industry.
Don't mean to be cryptic but my original intent wasn't to name names but rather to impress that the OP's request wasn't as impossible as he had believed. I try not to be in the business of sharing information that may have been given to me off the record from friends in competing companies who in turn try to keep it from each other since they were in J/K's shoes at one point.
But sign me up for customs with cowboy pockets! I'd love to see anything other than Cone.
