A friend just sent me this link https://youtu.be/u8n1SuPG8Qg
I thought this was an appropriate place to share it.

how do you know it's 100% goosedown throughout the filling? the descriptions I've found are not specific?

one of the problems I have with the brand is the dispairty in pricing across different types of garments.

For example a fully lined Made in Engalnd Harris Tweed Mallory is £700 at full retail, IMO thats reasonable and completely in line at price point, comparable to other premium brands. But then you get something like the Antartic Parka at £3000 - just doesn't make sense especially when NC's WW1 sheepskin retails at less than half (£1400)! Which of these offers some sort of value?

It feels where they don't have anything in the market that is direct competition to their product they inflate the retail price?

There has been no explanation for this 'misguided brothers' thread, im assuming its a dumping ground for any post deemed out of line?
For the record i think its unnecessary and too autocratic.
I'd like to think Denimbro's are not that uncivilised.

Don't get your knickers twisted, it was just for non-haikus during haiku day.

 That was slated to go through 4pm pct today after Maynard's time decree, but we're coming up on the deadline in a few hours, so I think we'll let the last few hours sort themselves out adherence-wise.

Yeah, no rebuke intended outside of the haiku day rules. I'll even try moving posts back to their original threads (as much as memory will allow) now that the time is up.

Hmm, maybe not. Perhaps my mod powers are malfunctioning, but I don't seem to be able to move posts from this thread.
