What's the consensus on this brand? Their stuff is made in England, it looks alright, quite pricey, but their stuff goes under the radar a fair bit and can be picked up pretty cheaply.

Is it overpriced shite or is it generally pretty good?

I think product is really good. The VCs put together a really strong team of veteran product devs. Ex Paul Smith etc.
It's not made in England.
Prices are mid-market I would say.
Jap market gets very different product. Some of the Jap range was in PRESENT at Xmas.
I think it's going to be big but I know they are being very selective about stockists etc.

Crap name, more so if it's made in England.

I buy Nike because it sounds cool, it is cool. Its Greek, the goddess meaning Victory. The brand is associated with sports personalities who generally I like. That's why I buy it and beacuse I like the products of theirs that I buy.

Hardy Amies sounds like bullshit.
