Why not ask?

Isn't RRL produced in mass numbers meaning that new with tags and almost new second hand would also be options if you cannot find it in a store?
Sorry I edited my message, I meant whether asking would be in bad taste.

Problem with second hand is that there doesn’t seem to be a big market for RRL in Europe, and here in Spain I would get slapped with a 40 or 45% surcharge bill in taxes and duties importing from outside the EU.

I think I've officially given up on RRL. They are pretty much the worst example of cultural appropriation and unsustainable production I can think of in a higher tier brand.
Cultural appropriation is a joke because 99% of the time the argument only goes one way against a certain group of people.

You know, on the latest Blamo ep I was thinking Jeremy was wrong for saying SF was full of conservative creeps....

Imagine having an account for 15+ years with almost no messages but breaking silence to want to start some white oppression debate.

Attack the messenger and not the argument. Classic.

That's because it is a criticism of a power relationship that is unequal. A member or business from a dominant group would be exploiting the cultural output of a less dominant group for gain. The appropriation only goes one way. It is based on unequal power relationships. There isn't a balance. That's the point.

Well all I have to say is that there are two things I can’t stand in this world…people who are insensitive of other peoples cultures and the Dutch

Since we're not in CE, Shouldn't it be simple enough to admit that RRL's approach to product development is uncompelling for some people because it's derivative not post?
