Supposedly the perfumes, makeup, and glasses are doing really well for TF. I'm not sure about the clothing though.

unless their domestic market will love it, I have a hard time imagining people in the west will pay up to 1200$ for Chinese rtw made shoes already...I mean if it’s just fancy patina one wants you have many way cheaper options outside of China (e.g caulaincourt, septiem largeur etc).looks very generic if you ask me
in another news, more shoe brand out of asia, personally "too much for me" (never liked Corthy other than to look at it, so you got my taste...)
Here is the start of many new Asian companies that will grace the pages of The Shoe Snob Blog. It is a new era in shoemaking and places like Vietnam and Shanghai are quickly gaining ground in making some very high-quality footwear. And you will start to see more and more of this in the future as...www.theshoesnobblog.com
Georgio Armani (or Black Label) has two tiers: 1. Half canvass; and 2) Full canvass.think back in the days Emperior Armnai was half canvassed, Giorgio Armani is full canvassed?
I think back in early 2000s the "fashion" brand's tailoring were actually decent from construction perspective, like top of the line Gucci/Versace/Ferre (still exist?) were all top of the line Zegna
guess we will see. 800-1200 feels like quite an up charge relative to the examples you gave especially given that most European makers might charge about 100$ for personalized patina. Especially 1200$ starts to come pretty darn close to the higher end Meccariello for me. EG/GG always felt relatively high compared to what they offer but there’s obviously enough people who feel it’s worth itYeossal and Oct Tenth x Son of Henry are in $600~$700 range both HW, think that would be the easy market, maybe they have a non patina line for <$1k?
I personally would pay for ~$1k if I see the quality is there, I mean EG and GG charge way over $1k for just even GW so to me still a bargain (and probably why I really like AM too, especially AM fits me better too)
edit: and I have a GMTO from Oct Tenth x SoH coming, so guess we will see, the article did say it's made in China then finished in Taiwan, so for all I know it might be Oct Tenth to start with...
