Too funny...you do really have to support the brands and emerging designers that you love. It's worth the extra money to have something unique.
A bit of blatant and vulgar self-promotion: Check my blog over the next couple of weeks for pics and profiles of new designers coming out of Beijing, fast emerging streetwear capital of China. I'm trying to answer the question of whether fakes actually hurt their growth and, in the process, give them some free promotions. There are some lovely pieces, all of which can be custom made (if you come here - until we develop a system for internet orders.)
