It's funny-- I think it looks colonial as well, but not in the sense of 1776. I mean in a British in India way, a dated, imperialist kind of thing. Probably their poses, as well. I don't care for...

It may have been a bad lot, but more likely the very cheap price is due to the fact that Coats & Clark has dropped Moda Dea completely-- the line is out of business. But I don't understand: is the...
