Where are A.P.C. jeans made? I doubt they're made in France... please enlighten me. If you have a pair, what does the tag say? Thanks!

My raw New Standards and Rescues both say "Made in Macau."Originally Posted by wEstSidE
And there is a better way to tell how well something is made, is to actually inspect how well its made. e.g."made in japan" used to mean junk, and now people demand it?Originally Posted by Tarmac
Today, about two-thirds of Martelli's production is at its Italian factories and one-third elsewhere. Petrin said that he could see the day coming when the relationship would reverse, and only design and research and development would remain in Italy. While Italians hold virtually all the jobs designing and marketing Martelli's jeans, only a few Italians remain on the shop floor. But the real secret to Martelli's success? Chinese labor. Indeed, Martelli's real challenge for several years has been to find the hands to do the work. Now, most of the 175 workers in one of Martelli's hand-crafting factories are Chinese, legal immigrants whom Petrin praises for their patience and dexterity. He attracted them to work for him after chancing upon a Chinese fabric dyer. "We tried Romanians and we tried Africans," he said. "None were as good as the Chinese."
