We live in a throwaway society. So little is built to last. Now more than ever, we have to value great quality because it's so scarce. At our main office we have a washing machine that broke down a few years ago because the gears melted. The gears couldn't handle the action that it was built for. My dad told me, when I was just starting my clothing company, when I was 24, that if your business isn't the best quality, it will not succeed.
We went through our archives for nearly a decade of collected wisdom that still holds up.
