You would not think there was so much involved in making a saddle.Brooks seem less British now owned by a foreign firn-no offence to Spanish.

I think the Spanish will probably get over it, but the Italians may be a bit upset....they seem a bit less less thick-skinned than an old Brooks saddle.

Spanish? Italian ?? British ??? - how confusing!! Perhaps the Eye-Ties no something we don't - yet... normally we spec the gubbins here & get it made in China 'cos the labour costs are low, low, low... :wink:
A while ago I toyed with the idea of buying a Volvo and got proper confused - head-office in Sweden, designed by somebody from Hong-Kong, some built in Belgium, some in Malaysia or India or America, but if called a PoleStar, then built in China - I gave up!

Why be rude about Italians-does your wife exhibit interest in sharp dressers?
