“Born in Canada, made in Italy”…the long-established slogan of the Caten twins.

Well that was until the arrival of “made in China” items which I personally noticed from the F/W2014-2015 collection (but could have existed before as I found posts dated 2009 mentioning that) .

They seem to be an extreme minority of items at the moment. In the spring/summer 2016 collection it seems to be restricted to knitwear. As if to apologise and reassure us about that, the logo states “Tailor made in China”, which is rather cryptic when talking about a v-neck fine wool jumper.

No doubt the Chinese are great, and cheap. Our Dsquared2 clothes are great…but they are not cheap.
