The kick is that being from Australia, you will get the 20% VAT back!!! It takes a while to process though.
It is still produced in Belgium.. well the clothes atleast.. don't know about the footwear though

Very little of it, as compared to before. The footwear is produced in Italy.

Hmm.. okay..

It is in my experience that a lot of the pieces from the current collection are produced in Belgium. Well basically all the pieces I've seen so far.. everything from the paint tees to the long wrinkle jackets

/\ That's cool. I haven't looked at tags closely in this season's mens - but I'm glad it is!

So basically.. all the "large" pieces are made in France, Italy, Poland as faust said...

While the "smaller" pieces like sweaters, tees, shirts etc. are still made in Belgium?

Well that's just sad.. it should be the other way around

Thanks faust.

My longjohns type trousers and scarf from this season were both made in Belgium. Maybe she just chooses what she wants to be made in Belgium

If you are looking for AD shoes, jewels or bags this is a great website. they have the key necklace, and the metal lace belt not to mention a really nice metal bracelet I have my eye on. ;-)

^^ That's the telephone number of debout (the shop carrying the Ann D shoes, bags, jewelry luckyme posted)

Here's the details I found from the website (http://www.deboutshoes.com/location.html)
debout
13023 ventura boulevard
studio city, ca 91604
monday - saturday 10-6
sundays 12-4
tel 818.906.7761



Back to the other topic though, does anyone know exactly why the items are increasingly being made in places other than Belgium? And does it make much of a difference in quality or anything else?
I may be totally wrong here but isn't Ann's business mainly based in Antwerp?
