Made in USA
This is really just a little rant about Americana products that are losing (lost) their roots. I recieved a new catalog in the mail today from a well know clothing/outfitters. I was suprised to find almost nothing made in the USA listed for sale. Levi's, Brooks Bros., LL Bean, etc....all companies that are American icons, and yet they outsource almost everything, and if they do make a made in the US product, they jack the prices to an obscene level and the quality does not ofset the cost. I'm really not impressed. Is there any iconic American clothing that's worth its salt actually made here any more?
