I think you hit the nail on the head. It's a fast changing world. We are saturated with products while our paychecks are in many cases shrinking. The age of their consumer is probably 50 and up (I'm 45, so no disrespect). On the plus side, they do/did carry Lorenzo Villoresi and Trueffit and Hill. Caswell Massey might be in trouble. They offer a nice line, but in truth I have bought very little of it.
