I dismissed it as nationalism at the time but maybe there really is an arbitrage out there.

I was a bit skeptical so promptly forgot the name of the merchant / mill.

 

A decent number of Monti fabrics are now woven in India.

^Tbh, I daresay that barring the requirement of a technical skill (and even then, with sufficient instruction), adequate compensation would usually more than suffice to narrow whatever gap there is between a product made in a developed country, and one constructed in a developing country. In fact, the amount spent would probably go a long way more since wages are significantly lower in developing countries. I've since learnt to be less apprehensive about products not made in developed countries.

That's interesting news about the Monti though.

I have a few metres of 8/9oz Rangoon for sale in these patterns.

0112 mid-grey chalk
0113 navy chalk
0140 navy glenplaid

PM me if interested.

AppleMark
AppleMark

5m of each. All 5m must be taken as I can't do anything with 1.5m for example, and the extra can be used for an extra pair of trousers.

It's a bit amusing that they forgot all of the picture captions and left dummy text blocks all through the article...
