post #22606 of 32707

I believe the iridescent bomber was made in USA but I could be wrong... will check when I get home. And I know I'm beating a dead horse but I wish they'd stop moving so much production to China. Although I will say that Chinese JE is usually better than other stuff from China.  They do seem to have better than average QC in their Chinese facilities from my experience.  However I am not sure their justification for making stuff in China for "their expertise in technical fabrics" still applies or if that is even accurate or simply a cop out.  Seems to be more and more stuff made in China now.

 

But no matter what anyone says, the quality is not at the level of the American made products. And please for the love of Gawd do not reply to this post trying to disagree. It's my opinion. And my opinion would be that you're wrong. Capeesh.

Quick pic of the new boucle crew in grey, will take more later if people want.

It's far more slim than the previous iteration and not as long. Went tts, so got a size small. The knit it way more tightly woven than the old. The new collar is nice. Sleeve cuffs are still loose.
Edit: if anything I'd say go up a size in this one if you want that oversized look

@leFLOPjames if moving to china lowered the pricing and kept at same level of quality that would be one thing. its a completely different animal when you move overseas and all products are increasing in price

I honestly dont care where its made as long as quality is fine and pricing is reasonable

@beans718 the mods want trades/sales/offers all to be in the Buy & Sell part of the forum, not in the brand discussion forum. has nothing to do with making a profit. has to do with the rules. there is also a facebook thread where you can trade/sell

This live chat is a cool idea, but I'm sure John and Aaron are getting swamped. Wondering how long I'll actually have to chat with the guys.

Btw I see nothing wrong with helping each other out in here. I see the issue with trying to mark up the prices but if you are selling for retail.. doesn't that fall under the point of this thread?

 

You're still going to get timed out for this post...

In response to the whole Made in China thing:

 

That's a great question, I'm glad you asked.
 
There's three reasons we produce stuff in China. 1. On certain technical pieces, it's hard to source factories in the US that can produce these products at a high level. 2. We are highly critical and selective in sourcing our manufacturing partners. When we choose to produce in China its because they have the technical expertise to produce those garments at a high quality. 3. From the beginning of this brand, we have wanted to give value for the price of our garments. For certain products, if we were to produce in the United States, the price would be extremely expensive and producing in China allows us to use fabrics from Italy and zippers from Switzerland with construction that will last.

I might buy this answer for technical pieces, but I'm fairly certain that there is nothing technical about a Flannel shirt.  I also highly doubt that the fabric is made anywhere too exotic - after all, it's just a cotton shirt sewn in China.  Don't get me wrong, I like the Flannel but the rationale seems off.

 

And, I have to say, I'm tired of hearing about "zippers made in Switzerland" like it's some incredible differentiator and driver of cost and production locations.  For Christ's sake, it's a damn Riri zipper that wholesales for under $5.

Thanks for ensuring that happens

I'm not, I'm just giving you advice to edit your post(s). I've barely done anything and been timed out for a week. It's frustrating when you have no idea why.
