Quality brands with quality materials for men's purchasing power

Any hunters or military guys here?
I'm looking for quality brands available in Europe with durable clothes that can withstand a lot for the outdoors and will last a long time.
I have bought hiking clothes and gears but I found that you have to be really careful with it, if not it's going to tear and rip easily as it's made with light and fragile fabric. For the price you pay I think it's a rip off.

Duluth Trading Co. makes quality work/outdoors clothing. We all wore their pants back in the day when I was on a tactical team.

Stumbled upon this website. It seems very useful, especially for you Americans.


I find the majority of the tech appliances brands do have a certain percentage of their manufacturing done in Europe. Usually the slightly more expensive and durable models.
 

They're japanese ? I didn't know that. I always thought they were a decent Walmart watch for the price. Huh... Didn't know that.

Anyhow

I've heard good things about these guys from a snow mexican friend . Too bad they only make commercial grade ones down here in the states. I'm not dropping 20k on a washer and dryer commercial combo for personal use. Heard they make extra good quality machinery... But you're gonna pay a bit more

I have a G shock tough solar that's been beat up pretty good and it's still going strong after 5 years without a battery change.

Aldens and Crockett and Jones as already mentioned are a great value in welted footwear. CJs are the better of the two in my opinion.

Fujiwara Kanefusa Japanese kitchen knives. High quality knives that hold an edge forever for around $100.

Glock pistols.

Amish furniture. There is a network of middleman dealers throughout the US. They can be found in any decent sized city.

My G-shock Tough Solar had been going for over 8 years now. Kind of dread the day it stops working because a few hundred USD for another might be hard to spend.
