I find that comment offensive. Why did the fact that it was Made in China gross you out? It's still authentic Coach and held to the same quality control standards as anywhere else. In fact, many of the other design houses are expanding production into China. If LV were to one day expand production into China (not that far-fetched of a concept) would that cause you to stop buying it??I always prefer a "made in France" over any other "made in"'s, especially the USA ones, although I have no reason why.
I remember I once bought a Coach wallet from the Coach outlet in Woodbury Commons and it had a plastic tag inside that said:
"Made in China"
Ewwwww....I only got it b/c my cousin wanted it for her b-day, but I was grossed out
Although, I do love my MacBook Pro and that comes from Taiwan/China,
