    A pleasure I have not yet experienced, and sadly, probably won't for a while.

    No more so than some some gestapo-ish litmus test as to what what constitutes Made in the USA. :foo:

    No test for that needed, we all know that they fudge that.

    That is a very serious charge to make against any manufacturer.

    If you truly believe AE is fudging their "made in USA" labels, you should file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commissions.

    Judging by the GQ in the bottom left corner of the pic I'd say it was shot for Home and Garden

    I however disagree that:

    "They divulge full information and are wholly upfront about this in all their materials."

    The McAllister is a brouged WT, the Strand is a brouged cap toe.

    The McAllister is probably the most "classic" brouged wingtip, but the MacNeil is the flavor you need if you like the longwing.

    Unbelievable. You're quoting someone else's inaccurate paraphrasing as your "source"? Why don't you go read Mr. Grangaard's response instead of continuing with your and others' bullshit. Production does NOT move back and forth between here and there. http://www.styleforum.net/t/228354/...-in-the-dominican-republic/30_30#post_5390098

    If you read Mr. Grangaard's reply, it is clear that production on the first part (cutting and sewing the uppers) moves back and forth. The first part is done in either the Dominican Republic or in Wisconsin. But the remaining part, after the upper is done, is done entirely in Wisconsin:
