Another post reminded me of this pet-peeve of mine.... I have to say, whenever I see the UNITE. label inside a jacket, the value of the suit/blazer somehow drops in value and quality in my mind. Somehow, I just can't get out of my head the vision of ham-handed, industrial, assembly-line workers, rather than quality-conscious tailors of fine clothing. I'm sure there are lots of nice people who are members of the local garment-workers union, but the "in your face" nature of the UNITE. label reminds me of way-past-its-time socialist revolutionary propoganda, or something. Not all US suits have them -- HF does I think (along with an ocean of other crappily-made suits), but Oxxford certainly doesn't. Perhaps Oxxford isn't unionized.
