So this is a little out of the blue, given that I've been in a work-related black hole for the last two months...but has anyone got any of the 50oz Drake's silk prints?

I feel like I saw one somewhere back in the day, and it was awesome. Buck's, probably.

Anyway, how y'all been?

Title: “Bonds” or “Calvin Klein” Down-under: Consumer ethnocentric and brand country origin effects towards men's underwear
Author(s): Wai Jin Lee, (School of Management, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia), Ian Phau, (The School of Marketing, Curtin University, Perth, Australia), Rajat Roy, (The School of Marketing, Curtin University, Perth, Australia)
Citation: Wai Jin Lee, Ian Phau, Rajat Roy, (2013) "“Bonds” or “Calvin Klein” Down-under: Consumer ethnocentric and brand country origin effects towards men's underwear", Journal of Fashion Marketing and Management, Vol. 17 Iss: 1, pp.65 - 84
Keywords: Australia, Brands, Consumer behaviour, Country of origin, Domestic, Enthnocentrism, Foreign, Luxury
Article type: Research paper
DOI: 10.1108/13612021311305146 (Permanent URL)
Publisher: Emerald Group Publishing Limited
Abstract:
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to determine if high versus low ethnocentric consumers differ in their attitudes toward buying domestic and foreign brands of underwear that are made domestically or in foreign countries.

Design/methodology/approach – Australian residents recruited through a mall intercept participated in this study through a self-completed questionnaire. Fishbein's Multi-Attribute model was used as the measure, along with repeated-measures ANOVA and t-tests, to examine whether the groups differed in their attitudes toward buying underwear with “Made in Australia”, “Made in the USA”, and “Made in China” labels.

Findings – The findings generally indicated that there is no significant difference between high and low ethnocentric consumers in attitude towards underwear that are made in Australia and the USA. On the other hand, high ethnocentric consumers viewed domestically made and branded underwear as more durable, easier to care for, better priced, more colourful, more attractive, more fashionable, of stronger brand name, more appropriate for occasions, and more choices of styles. Domestically-made but foreign-branded underwear is viewed as easier to care for and better priced.

Practical implications – The study suggests that China should improve its country image as compared to such developed nations as Australia and the USA in terms of production and manufacturing standards. The study also purports that American underwear brands with strong presence in the global fashion world that have not already established operation in Australia can consider entering the market.

Originality/value – The paper fills the gap in the ethnocentrism literature by validating the study in Australia and focusing on the attitudes of high ethnocentric (and low ethnocentric) consumers. It also examines underwear, which is a common product category in apparels but inherently deficient in the literature.

TFP, I've seen a couple, too, but the problem with Drake's is that most of their ties are 8cm and have been for the past few years.

If you can find one that's 9cm wide, they're great, but they wider variety are pretty rare (and the only wide ones on the Drake's online store are also longer than normal, which is frustrating).

just received my invite for the henry bucks store relaunch. which other style nerds are going?

I got to test run my new Suit Shop suit at a wedding in KL over the weekend (with peach linen tie from Jason). Got it just in time before flying, still deciding whether a second fitting is necessary now that the jacket is a bit more broken-in. Tropical wool in a nice shade of blue.

picked up a few linen shirts and pants from Uniqlo which were on 'Limited Offer'. The Melbourne store may only have winter stock by the time it opens.

Also finally tried polishing my shoes properly. I have a long way more before I reach Garry Level. It looked simple. I thought wrong.

I believe I'm going.

I'm in KL right now heading off to Sri Lanka tomorrow. Glad to hear the Suit Shop suit worked out well!

I just realised that most of my wardrobe on this trip is from Uniqlo - linen shirts, polo shirts, socks, jeans and chinos.

I'll be back before the Henry Buck's store relaunch and willl be there.
