The craftsmanship of the clothes is decent, like other brands in this price range APC sourced factories in Eastern Europe. Manily Romania for the hoodies, Macau (where their jeans are already made), and Portugal for the T-shirtsI. You're not exactly paying for first-world wages for the garment works, but they're also not being made in dangerous Bangladeshi sweatshops either. It's a good trade off between completely shoddy work and true "artisan" level construction. It doesn't exactly mean the clothes merit the price, but having Kanye's name on the tag probably drives the final cost up a bit.
