even the moma x champion rw hoodies and crewnecks were only $65-80 and used tackle twill lettering lol
That’s actually a good deal because Champion RW blanks clock in around $30. I have a hard time imagining someone would do the the tackle twill lettering treatment for less than $10/piece. That’s a $40 first cost before you’ve shipped anything anywhere.

Kind of an interesting read here on founder of Outdoor Voices. "There was pressure after raising a lot of money to land as many new customers as possible and grow at all costs."

I read this story as well and thought it was fascinating. A really honest look at what went wrong, what her strengths are and where she should have sought help.

Sad news, and they’re supplier for?
Well the article says Brooks Brothers, but I suspect the answer is also many of the smaller labels the forum favours.

Vanners and Adamley are the two major silk suppliers in England. If you see someone talk about how they use English silks, they likely got it from one of these two places. Vanda Fine Clothing started with Vanners silk.

the whole industry and supply chain to many brands large and small has been disrupted.
with lockdowns in Europe and coming to the USA again (without any aid in sight for businesses) its gonna be brutal
I know friends who have privately closed their business, others holding on for dear life and its just rough and uncertain time.
We have had to lay off 4 people here at Zfactorie and with no tourists, very little travelling etc, our instore business has been down about 60 or so percent from what it was last year.
Lets hope for a good winter season...................not just for ourselves but for everyone. life first, but business is important

Nobody is going to bail out small places, not to the extent that they need. They'll kick the can down to landlords, and here in Canada you don't even have to wait until the business is utterly ruined - they're already evicting people for back-rent payments.

The point is that fewer people die this way.
We never really opened up here in LA. Theres no indoor dining, no gyms, no bars, offices should be closed, no public gatherings over a certain size. Schools public and private are remote only. Our numbers are still growing and setting new records every single day.

I think at this point it's just human nature. People can suspend human contact and family activities for a few months. But not a whole year.

agree it's human nature, though American never stick to it for real, also CA is not an isolated state from the rest of the US, and LA certainly is not isolated from the rest of CA. Look at o Asia (even exclude China) if you want to see how it can be beaten (Taiwan, South Korea, NZ, Australia, or even the less rich ones, Vietnam), guess water under bridge at the moment.

It's all very true. Although it's tough to compare the USA to one of those countries as this is a far bigger and more diverse place.

I can't speak for the rest of the country, but I know that we have massive community spread amongst young people here because so many of them know others who are asymptomatic. They just don't see it as a threat.

I personally know at least 25 people who were positive, and never received any medical attention at all. I still take the virus very seriously... I follow the mask and distance guidelines, and I get tested every 2-3 weeks, but the reality is that COVID isn't as frightening or mysterious as it was before, unless you're in a very vulnerable group. So people who don't feel particularly vulnerable are now choosing to ignore the rules and resume their old social habits. I think that it's just going to play out that way. Americans just won't accept the tougher measures that other countries can impose.

Disclaimer: I'm not saying this with any judgement or slant either way. I get enough political bickering and bitching on Facebook. Just stating what I see here in Los Angeles, a place with some of the toughest restrictions in the country.
