A rant about the olympics and how its caused a shortage of riding jackets

So since june i've been trying to get a alpinestars sniper air flo jacket in white and no vendor in america seems to have any in large. I talked to a women today from an ebay store and she said the olympics are to blame. Apparently in an effort to cut down on air pollution, China has set a mandated three day work week. I'm not sure how long it takes to make a jacket but everywhere i've checked they all have dates that strech into september or even october for when they're getting the jacket in. The same issue goes for some Icon jackets that i've looked at.



Bear in mind i havn't doubled check this information but on the surface it seems to make sense.


End rant



Edit - I just noticed i put this in the wrong section, so please excuse my attention span at 1am :all_cohol

Items go out of stock all the time, for a number of different reasons. God forbid China have clear enough air for a few weeks that all our athletes don't get sick!
