    Anyone heard of West Louis?

    I have occasionally tried out places I find online that look like they have potential but also appear sketchy. It's kind of a game for me. I view it as such so when disappointed am not surprised or really upset by it. I expect it to be rubbish from the get go.

    From my own experiences with sites like the one you post I can tell you this. 9/10 chance it is based in China and rebranding items found on Alibaba for $5. Then marking up the price 1000%.

    7/10 chance that what arrives is only a general representation of what you thought you would get. Different fabric, color, fit etc. When this happens it can be hilariously low quality. Not even fit for donation. I should post some pictures for fun one day.

    If you play around enough you can find hidden gems. Some more recent ones are H2H (based on S. Korea) which makes some good stuff if you are careful and do your research. LeatherCult (based in India) which I've posted about and have become a fanboy of is another.

    But expect rubbish. That's the bottomline.

    YES 100%

    i didn't know how to place it exactly, but that is exactly what i was thinking.

    And, if you run a few reverse image searches, you'll quickly see that there's a reason for that - many of the images on the West Louis website are ripped straight from cheap Asian brands selling on Amazon.
