So it seems the trousers are definite, but how likely is it that the sunglasses will be produced?
I have an aging civic hatchback but I accepted that when I chose my career. Wouldn't trade that for all the steez on earth!
just got my tracking number 2 days ago, and hoping that this:
Customs retention reason : Other

edit: elastic waist toj pants, sound great. Waiting for measurements!
so drew I have a question about the loyalty program and how many points I should have
does the OCBD count towards it?
This is what I have so far.
AE varsity, the first MA-1, 2010 DR, Min DR, anniversary harrington. (veg tan wallet?)
Also, jackets below coats like varsities, MA-1, etc., count as 1/2 points.
if we're still brainstorming, I could totally see a walking coat for F/W 12.
something like this
So about the shop that artishard made... doable? Inquire minds want to know.
Drew, why do majority of Korean brands (big and small) make their stuffs from China? I mean I know China has cheap labor but so does Korea, and most people I know (sampling error maybe? ) have 'oh please not MIC' attitude when purchasing clothes online, since many e-shops omit country of manufacture.
They don't have much clothing manufacture left in Korea. All of those jobs have gone to China and other developing countries long ago. Everybody in Korea wanted to become a white collar.
Because Chinese factories have a larger economy of scale for larger design houses, resulting in cost savings across the board. The difference in quality of output nowadays between workers in developed and developing countries is small enough that it is no longer a consideration for fast fashion houses (and in some cases can even be better in China) , as evidenced by American Apparel and Uniqlo.
That the RMB is pegged to the USD is also conducive to conglomerates shifting production there, as it removes the cost of insuring against major changes in exchange rates and aids in projecting costs into the future.
For those houses that plan on having international distribution networks, having a factory in Guangzhou or Macau also grants them access to some of the largest ports in the world and their distribution channels.
It also helps that doing business in China requires you to only bribe the local officials enough to keep his mouth shut about violating environmental legislation and OH&S, so long as you're a low key player.
Drew, what do you think of a coat like the one a couple posts back?
Alright, sorry for the long ass delay. I have been swamped and haven't had time to setup a tripod to take a pic.
