Buying American Clothing & Accessories

Why Buy American?

Decades ago, the apparel industry was one of the first to be lost to overseas manufacturing. Today, only about 3% of our apparel purchases in the U.S. are domestically made. Fear not though - American clothing manufacturing is making a comeback! According to data from the Reshoring Initiative (a non-profit organization focused on bringing back American jobs from overseas), the textile industry ranks 6th in the amount of jobs being reshored to America since 2010. When they manufacture locally, brands are able to have tighter control on the source of their materials, production quality, lead times, and the speed at which they design and innovate - which all directly benefits us, the American consumer. We're doing the research to help you discover those great brands for various product categories, testing and reviewing several pieces of clothing and accessories to highlight which are truly the best ones.
