    Not a tribute to Internet predators everywhere, but instead...

    I noticed about 10 minutes ago how unusually Americanish I'm dressed today. Nike plimsols, Levi jeans, Calvin Klein underwear and even a big Mickey Mouse on my T-shirt. The socks at least are from British Home Stores, so it's not a total loss. :D

    However, it has got me thinking. How much have big American brands, not including Apple Computers, infiltrated our lives? What do you have on, and what is technically* the country of origin?



    *yeah, they are probably all made in China, but you get the idea ;)

    Let's have a look...

    Jeans – from Next – a British company I believe, but actually made in Turkey.
    Shirt – I've still got my Diadora (Italian) Hull City home shirt on after the game, made in Romania of all places. Still, I suppose it's the closest a City shirt is going to get to Europe for the time being. :p
    Socks – generic black socks, could be from anywhere.
    Underwear – Next boxers, but I'd have to take them off to read the label and I'm not getting semi-nekkid™ for you, young man. :p ;) I can imagine them being made somewhere in Eastern Europe, though.
    Slippers – they have the England football team crest on, proving how patriotically dressed I am. Made in... oh, hang on... China. :eek:

    A River Island brown v neck jumper — UK?.
    A grey "Drop Shadows Not Bombs" t-shirt, printed in the US.
    An H&M turquoise vest — Sweden.
    A bra of dubious origins (cut out the scratchy label), but probably M&S — UK.
    H&M jeans — Sweden.
    Sloggi knickers — US, I assume?
    Aberdeen football socks (don't ask!) — UK

    Was also wearing Birkensock shoes earlier (Germany), but now have my feet up on the sofa. :D

    Interesting idea for a thread — I'm actually surprised I don't have that many American brands on, to be honest.

    T-shirt, pants and belt happen to all be from the same (NZ-only?) shop, Hallensteins. Shirt and pants are made in China, belt made in NZ. Underwear's probably made in China too :rolleyes:

    As you can see, I like Ruehl a lot :D

    Ruehl No.925 sweater
    Ruehl No.925 polo
    Ruehl No.925 boxers
    Ruehl No.925 Vandam jeans
    Diesel shoes

    No kidding, I love their stuff. It's kind of hard though if you don't live near a store, only 13 of them in the world. And though they have a website, you can't order online, or even see their catalogue.

    Urban Outfitters jeans (but they don't have their own brand so I don't know where)
    CK trunks (US)
    CK shirt (US)
    + I have no clue what brand my socks are...but I'd say they're from the US
