But the point isn't so much where the workers are from. The point is that they are living, working, and spending here in the States. And the corporation is based here as well. All of this stimulates our economy.
We do, of course, have immigration issues to address - but that's a bit of a separate topic.
For me the point is that for those of us who can afford to spend a little bit more for quality American made goods perhaps at this point in time we should. As our economy needs the boost. Sort of a 'vote with your wallet' sort of thinking.

I'm sure there's others I'm leaving out. This also doesn't include a veritable cottage industry of people making smaller items like socks, bow ties, neck ties, pocketsquares, cuff links, lapel pins, etc. that do pretty well in the e-commerce market.
i believe cone mills still makes cotton cloth in the us. i just bought some of their selvage raw denim. it looks good so far, have not cut yet.

Curious question regarding this topic (which seems to come up quite frequently). Are there any non-Americans here who actually wanna buy items because they are "Made in USA"?
I am just asking since after 7 years in the US my feeling is that American manufacturing in general is pretty lousy. Sure some brands (e.g. AE or Alden) are decent, but I buy them despite being "Made in USA" rather than because of this label. By the way this is not supposed to be some silly anti-Americanism: I really really miss (among many other things) quality of SERVICES in the US. Just wanna understand if this is more a question of patriotism or if missed something regarding quality of US manufacturing.
Although Im English the tailoring for my company is all made in the U.S and I look for local suppliers and makers because the quality is there, but also, and mainly so that lines of communication are short, This is good for quality control especially in custom garments.
