Eternally sad, with my slabs of meat, Clarks a complete no go zone................

Wore (and swore by) nothing but Clarks for many years.
After a few year lay off I recently went to pick up the same pair I wore for 4 years straight (Naturvelt I believe), and something was definitely off.  The leather was not nearly as nice and they looked and felt "cheaper" and I'd even say flimsier.
The retailer told me that Clarks of England had become just Clarks and was now making most stuff in China.
Very sad and dissapointing moment for me...

I have the Harris Tweed version of desert boots and I can't really say anything good about them. Quality is awful. No go zone for me too.

I went into a Clarks shop in Weston-super-Mare last year to try on a pair of desert boots only to be told they don't carry them in stock and I would have to order them over the internet. I couldn't believe that, I thought they were their most popular model. Needless to say I didn't purchess a pair.
