iPhone Covers - San Francisco

All Ties - New York
Tote Bags - El Paso
Yes!
Our warehouse received a partial shipment today as a matter of fact - We have to do some paperwork, but they should be restocked soon.
I know sweatshirts are dropping in March. They are made in the same facilities as our t-shirts.

Those things were asked for by a lot of people, so clearly it wasn't for the majority.

A google search gives me nothing. baldy[1].gif
I will check my green trash can later today and scan the article.

Two water bottle holders? I can't ever remember having two water bottles at once.
Maybe a cup of coffee and a water bottle.
I am sure the new bag will be great. I just really love the simplicity of the first one.

Are the weekenders waxed canvas? I didn't think they were.

they are not

Disclaimer: I was not born in the US, but not a hater at all. Additionally, I got the point of supporting local manufacturing workers as mentioned in this thread.

Just by curiosity, do Americans in general (or maybe even geared towards more educated and worldly ones) perceive "made in the US" as superior quality? Probably, I have lived in too many parts of the world, but I would not share this perspective at all.

I haven't seen the new one myself, so this is guess work, but if the holders are on the side on the bag I think it's more providing one for left and right handed people than the ability to carry two waterbottles at once.

I think it really depends on what I'm buying, but no, I don't think that a made in the USA tag automatically makes it superior.

do we know when the backpacks are going to be available online?

post #1329 of 3325
Hey Everlane, I think I might have gotten a belt that is a size large marked as a medium. It measures 34 inches to the smallest hole but says medium on the back.

I'm not American and I don't live in the US, but very generally speaking if I was offered 2 otherwise identical looking items I would prefer the one that said 'Made in USA' or 'Made in Italy' over one that said Made in China.

Mine's still in the US because I haven't driven down to pick my weekender up yet, but damn, that strap looks LONG! and somewhat flimsy as well.

What was their rationale between making it long enough to put it on the shoulders? Does anyone carry other weekenders that way anyway? Hope I'll be tall enough (5'10) so that the bag won't be hanging too low...
post #1332 of 3325
I feel like shorter, handle-like straps would have been much more flattering than the shoulder-strap-length ones they went with.
post #1333 of 3325
Shoulder length is quite convenient when you're carrying a bunch of shit and need to grab your car keys or something.

I used to but my parents and extended family used to buy only American-made cars. After having problems with a couple of them, they will only buy Japanese now. I still buy Made in USA clothing (Gitman, Epaulet, RRL) though hoping it helps support US labor.

Keep in mind that it has been reported in the past that some brands will manufacture a product in one country and then ship it to a factory in Italy for finishing. A product with a 'Made in Italy' tag could have been made by Chinese immigrants in an Italian factory.

Let the product speak for itself.
