    True. First CMT was in the Visegrad countries, then when they joined I think it was Turkey, followed by Morocco (not as far away as you might think). I've just checked my Next suit and it comes from Vietnam.
    That's not to say that we don't export, because of course we do. Inevitably I only remember the trade through Dover that caught my eye, such as:
    - wallpaper to Russia
    - disposable razors to North Africa (weird)
    - whiskey to Turkey (ditto, and with EU CAP subsidy because of the grain)
    - instant coffee to Calais and back (to take advantage of the pricing structure to encourage export markets)
    - hand-rolling tobacco (ditto, only it was, and I think still is, smuggled back).
