    It depends where you look. Like almost all Italian manufacturers, they produce a lot or mass-market junk, but they also make higher-end stuff, both classic and rather more fashion-forward for SF tastes. It's not surprising that a lot of the junk gets exported because 'Made in Italy' and Italian brand names have a certain appeal to people who think they know how to dress, especially in North America.
