Different kind of protectionism though.

Like I said, it's should be considered, measured, well thought out and specific. Not just a way to halt global liquidity and reduce the economies of specialisation.

I am a little biased as I know Chris and Tara from Velobici quite well after meeting them at a show last year, I have seen the new Roadwear collection and it is pretty impressive. The quality is amazing and Chris has spent nearly 18 months developing the range, he has even gone as far as having his own fabric made because he could not find one with the technical features he wanted.

If you think of top end Assos at a lower price rather than Rapha it makes a bit more sense plus you get the benefit of the made in Britain thing.

All I would say is that the fact it is made in Britain is a nice extra, the cost is in the finish and attention to detail is what counts, it would be interesting to see a review from someone independent who gets one when they are launched.
