    It’s always worth to fight against knockoffs, especially the ones which are produced in the communist state of China. They ruin the industry with very cheap products and as said before fake or knockoffs of well designed products. We have to ban everything what is coming from China, and I really mean that. Here in Italy there are a lot of obscure firms, socalled Chinese tailors, but the only thing they do is reproduce the designs of the real designers, like Armani, Prada, Versace etc. This has to stop. As long as the communists in China are not capable of stopping this ‘trade’ we have to do it here in the western world. So don’t buy Chinese clothes, arriverderci
