exactly. all look same. very boring. the brands that become very successful lost their appeal very quickly (WESC, Acne, Nudie, J. L.) due to increasing prices. Carin Wester and Julian Red I actually kind of like. I swear if you gave me a bunch of these Swedish things with the labels removed...I probably couldn't distinguish them.
