    Yep, those are definitely all very good points you bring up. I was mainly interested, however, on his take that the gloves are made in Pakistan and not Mexico.

    I think there is a law in the USA that both, the product and the package, have to clearly state the origin of the goods. Otherwise they can't be distributed.

    It's law in new Zealand to label country of origin. But when buying online it's hard to police these rules. The law does include websites etc but I don't think anyone would check unless there were multiple complaints

    There is more in the article, but that quote essentially sums it up

    I have ordered Sabas gloves and there is nothing on the box, in the packaging, or attached to the gloves that indicates what country they were manufactured in. Unless maybe there is a tag way up inside the gloves that you can’t see. I’m not saying it’s not a law though...but I’m sure it’s hard to enforce, especially with small companies like Sabas.

    It’s for customs, but just like anything that people can buy illicitly online, things get passed customs all the time.
