IMO, yes. I would want to see the fabric before it goes into production and I would want to know that production would not be sub-contracted overseas, unless, they have a full time rep located there to check quality, sizing and push things along throughout the entire production and shipping process. What I find puzzling though, is everyone should be receiving a sample prior to production. Are those production samples a good representation of what the final product is looking like? They should be, and if so, I'm starting to believe the biggest hurdle may be as simple as the window is just too narrow to accommodate changes and gyms are just settling in hopes they will get their uniforms in time.
