    Hi!

    I'd like to ask about clothing and shoes made in China and especially via Ebay.

    a. Is indeed their quality lower in comparison with clothes that we can buy from European/American retail shops?

    b. Of course their price is much lower comparing to that of clothes from European/American retail shops, but maybe this price difference has to do with other factors such as intermmediaries, taxation, low wages of Chinese etc, and not with the quality factor. Am I wrong?

    c. And when we buy clothes from European/American retail shops, how can we know that their quality is good? (I am not referred to famous brands like Lacost etc). There are numerous unknown brands that European/American retail shops sell. Are these of better quality compared to Chinese clothes?

    d. Chinese clothing on Ebay are wholesale?

    e. What are the pros and cons of unbranded clothing and shoes?

    f. In case that the low prices of Chinese clothing is due to Chinese workers' low wages, why don't they charge higher when it comes to sell and ship to Western countries?

    g. Furthermore, there are numerous clothes and shoes that we buy from European/American retail shops but are made in China. Does it mean that their materials' quality is like Chinese Ebay clothing? Or their materials are of better quality? To be more understood, the Western known and unknown companies what materials do they use? Do they use good materials and send them to China for manufacturing or do they use the same materials as Chinese companies?



    I'd like your opinion, thank you!

    Hmmm, I'm just not that sure, (no offense just an opinion) because most of chinese made stuff are not that good in quality, that it seems like the product can only last for few days or months.

    you know what price,what goods.if you pay the money that's not match for the quality you want,you would get poor goods.

    I would say that the quality is lower, but you can certainly still turn a hefty profit. Why let WalMart have all of the fun?

    If you find out more about importing items from China, please let me know.

    If Chinese clothing were of low quality then, why these products have flooded European and American markets? Obviously the economic crisis made clothing purchases from China soar. But having in mind depreciation, wouldn't it more economical to buy 1 sweater of good quality instead of 3 of low quality that will be damaged shortly? Even if they are very cheap, people might prefer to buy 1 item that will last instead of more that will last less time. What I want to point is that maybe there are quality levels even among Chinese products. I have bought many clothing products and items from China, and most of them fit well and haven't been damaged. Only few were unsuccessful purchases.

    Another question is what about famous brands that manufacture in China? For example Nike. Nike apart from Chinese workers, utilizes Chinese cheap raw materials to manufacture its products or they send raw materials from other countries to China and they only utilize the cheap Chinese workforce?

    Hmmm, I think your last thoughts were right, what I'm also thinking is they just send materials to China then manufacture it there, since it they can get cheaper manufacturing cost. (those are just some thoughts, though). You might still get cheaper brands from china, but those products might be so rare so you really have to choose well..
