Went to visit my brother in Boston. Did the tourist thing back in 2010, and at some point stopped at a street vendor and picked up the sweatshirt. I think it was 2 for $25 so I got one for me and one for the wife.
I still wear them to this day. They're a little worn, but useable. Not coming apart.
I bought a sweatshirt a couple of months ago. Says "Army" on it and I wanted to rep my branch so I paid about $35 for a single sweatshirt. The bottom edge of it is unraveling already.
I have no idea where my Boston sweatshirts were made. Probably China, because two sweatshirts for twenty-five bucks was pretty damn cheap even in 2010. But they're still doing strong while my brand new sweatshirt is already coming apart. I'm going to do some hand-stitching on it to keep it alive for a while longer, but what the hell?
Anyone else dealing with crap like this? I expect a $35 piece of clothing to last longer than a couple of months.
