During the 1980s and 1990s there was a great push to promote ‘Made in the USA’ for various products. Today, it might seem as though everything you find on the shelves at your local stores are actually made in China.
Believe it or not, there are still fashion brands that are made in the USA. You don’t always have to search through everything on the racks or shelves in the store just to find them. Instead, look for any of these fashion brands and you’ll be able to take full advantage of the incredible quality that became synonymous with Made in the USA.
If you’re like a lot of people, you could be narrowing your eyes and looking at this name thinking, “Who?”
Hickey Freeman is a company that has been around since 1899 and crafts some of the finest men’s suits you’re going to find anywhere. Their products are generally reserved for higher end stores, such as Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue. You could pick up a Hickey Freeman suit for anywhere between $1,195 and $1,895.
This company is proud of its tradition of making quality clothing for men right here in the USA.
When you’re in the market for sneakers, you’ve probably come across New Balance. This company was founded in 1906 in Boston and has continued to make some of the best, most comfortable footwear at a reasonable price.
However, it’s important to note that not every shoe they make is done so in the United States. In fact, only about 25 percent of their U.S. stock is manufactured in the country. That equals about 7 million pairs of sneakers being manufactured in the U.S. Still, that’s a lot better than many other fashion brands.
This designer jeans company was founded in 2002 in Vernon, California and has some pretty hefty price tags for jeans. A pair of True Religion jeans can cost anywhere from about $170 to $400 per pair.
That may be a lot more than most people can afford to look cool, but they’ve found a great market and they’ve devoted their attention to ensuring that all of their products are produced and manufactured in the United States.
