Most outerwear is made in China. Many of the low tech industries in China are starting to experience labor shortages as the labor force shifts towards better paying high tech jobs. The infrastructure in China has also not kept up with industrial growth, i.e., not enough electricity.
I think its a bunch of bullshit. Maybe if you started earlier you would be able to ship it earlier. It's not a hard concept. If you are the last on the list for shipping because it is low priority, why the fuck don't you just do it earlier?
Dude, are there pennies in that bag of water?
"I thought you had crowbars?"
"LOL crowbars, what is this 2007?"
Companies show off their line at SIA (January) and can't send orders to factories until they have orders from shops in (February/March). They can't just make clothing and hope people buy it, they need to have orders from shops so banks give them the money to produce everything.
Its also way more complicated than that, but that's the easiest answer.
I buy most of my stuff local. Rime knits hat, Phar north hoody, line step ups(special order from local dearler), Go pro(local shop) I try and get everything from my town or State (MT). Although your statement just sounded stupid you cant buy everything local Saga,Ldc, and whatnot.

If you really really need something for the start of the season, buy it in person off the shelf. You have to decide if it's worth the risk of waiting until January to save a few bucks or get exactly what you want, versus walk into a shop and have it immediately. This is especially true with smaller co's that are manufacture based on pre-orders.
