Hi *

I reckon it's cheaper to produce them locally (e.g. in the USA for 
Pascal & the other US ambassadors - probably even more locally, i.e. 
east coats or north eastern USA).

After all, it's just a simple blue (i.e. Pantone ® 2935) polo-shirt with 
the symbol, the logo amd Ambassador lettering stitched on - nothing that 
only that producer in Germany can do.

And right now, the Euro is very expensive ;)
