LE seems to go for a "price point" and sacrifices quality for price. The $19.99 OCBD is a prime example. I've been buying them for over 20 years. The original was more like today's Hyde Park version. I remember the old Hyde Park being a lot more sturdier. You'll never see a car mfg say we kept the price the same for the last 20 years. I believe LE should keep quality the same and increase the price instead.Over the summer I bought a cotton plaid tie that ended up being made in China. I sent that one back.
