After a 20 minute monologue, he said that until this year, all suits made in China were terrible. The suits made in Italy were a mixed bag, but the suits MADE IN THE USA were always "completed properly." I learned that term to mean the stitch-work was excellent. Why bring this up?
Well, local is in the eye of the beholder. I want local basil to have sprouted within 100 miles. But, I consider a USA made (in my case Rochester, NY & Chicago, IL) suit local.
