I would almost be willing to guarantee that Corneliani, St Andrews et al do not setup a new production line for the things they do as subcontractor. I've been in places where brands X, Z and Z were all being done on the same day, same seamstresses, same cutters etcetera. The funny part? All 3 sold for different prices from $500 to $1200. Evidently the cost is in embroidering the brand name :-) Some label's cost .75 each, some labels cost $750 to embroider.... (and spend a few million advertising). Kinda makes ya slap your forehead and do a Homer Simpsonesque D'oh........1 doesn't it?
