To most of the buying public, price matters more than a piece's origin. Made in Italy? Made in USA? They don't care unless it's priced fairly. But, to the average reader of A Continuous Lean or Well-Spent, "fair" is pretty relative. $500 for a shoe made in Massachusetts instead of China could seem "fair" to an Americana enthusiast, but $500 is still $500 to the guy who'd rather spend that on an iPad mini.
