1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    Just noticed this while perusing ebay. Here is one such auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....23&rd=1 Others mention it as well. Think they'll still command the same premium? Will the product suffer? Dan

    I don't know if this story is true or not, but probably so since Loomstate (Rogan's sister company) makes their stuff in S. America.

    I think that for a lot of consumers, the story of quality begins with "Made in" and ends with a period. So that may hurt the brand.

    But the guys at Rogan probably said to themselves "Hey our jeans fall apart in a month, and people keep buying them anyway. Our customers must not care about quality." And the decision was made.
