I don't think I've seen denim in the last few years that hasn't been social sculpture.

Fully agree. Deep history of craftsmanship in HK/China. Some of the Savile Row made-to-measure is often outsourced to there. Comes down the workshop. I have had some great and p*ss poor work come back from Savile Row / Jermyn Street andAs much as I turn my nose up at 'Made in China', all pairs of Vis footwear I have have been excellent quality. Let's not forget that China has a history of producing some of the finest pieces in history, Jade, Porcelein etc. I appreciate recent history has somewhat tarnished this, but with a population that large, surely there will be people who still produce quality.
Same here in England, we have factories in Leicester producing crap for Boohoo, as well as world class cobblers in Northampton and tailors on Savile Row. Nowhere is perfect.
I appreciate not everyone is having a pop at the 'Made in China' tag as part of this conversation, but just wanted to add my two pence.
Thanks, that leaves little discussionOG's, cause the blue sole is ugly AF.

Velvet in my experience doesn't do well with water (discolors material heavily, sometimes to a white color). It might look great over time, but I don't want to be a guinea pig. Hence why I posted it for someone who will do them justice.How would the streets destroy the uppers?
