    sorry but what's the difference if it's made in italy or romania? Both are european countries, the prestige still exists.

    Ones a shithole that's hesitantly considered European

    Lots of luxury brands have moved some of their shirt manufacturing to Romania. I've got some Raf, MMM, and Lanvin stuff that is made in Romania. I'm guessing that they're all manufactured by the same factory or company but the quality has been at least equal to any of my MiF/MiI stuff so I don't really care.

    Stuff is made by immigrants working in a factory either way, does it even matter?

    exactly this. of course the tag doesn't read "made in Italy by barely-skilled Chinese immigrants"

    Nopes. Immigrants work for cheap but basic skillz are still a requirement.

    staff international's quality has been on point for the MII products. haven't any experience with MIR ones yet, anyone wants to try...lol?

    in all seriousness though, it's probably okay...if made by Staff.

    I'm sorry but MII > MIR

    Its kind of a tragedy that so many luxe labels are now doing MIR stuff... even Balenciaga..

    Call me a snob, but i simply refuse to pay top bill for made in romania, hungary, bulgaria, ukraine etc..

    ..even portugal and turkey rarely cut it

    my motto is always always always check the tags for fabric and country of origin
