Re: Dead or dying fashion brands still popular outside your home country

IZOD isn't sold in Australia in 'mainstream' stores as far as I am aware. Maybe it is in boutiques but I've never seen the brand on sale anywhere here except (bizarrely) in a 'direct factory outlet' chain called TK Maxx... Which I believe has US links. I buy Michael Kors shirts, Kenneth Cole shirts...
