    Apparently MII stuff is well received, but how much of that MII stuff is made by immigrants, who could possibly be from China, so really some of the MII stuff is Made by Chinese in Italy. I mean think about it, who are the typical people that work in these low wage garment factories, immigrants! And yet people are willing to pay the extra price for MII stuff, those factory owners must be rich I tell you.

    They use the local fabric, and its most likely run buy Italians. Watch Gomorrah.

    My local free weekly paper referred to Gomorrah as a Nepalese crime drama. :lol:

    Hot cars and beautiful women. Their clothes are bad either.

    OP, how about a "How to" thread on "How to smuggle in undocumented Chinese factory workers for your garment production line." I'd very much appreciate it, thanks.

    Add "Made in U.S", "Made in Japan" to the list. Consumers like fairy tales.

    Btw Iroh your guides are the best! I never knew how to bleach my shirt to white, until now that is

    I like the little packets of grated parmesean cheese free with purchase.

    I'm all made in France now.

    Much much more exclusive than Italy.

    Order some "Made in Italy" tags and some clothes from a Chinese factory, assemble them in Italy.

    Mike's right, branding still appeals to most, but today not everything's 100% made in the us or italy
