Made in the Southeastern USA

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It seems the number of "Made in the U.S.A." businesses has increased recently (especially from the apparel industry) and we are introduced to them thanks to blogs like Fuck Yeah Made in USA.
 
However, I am curious how many of those businesses actually integrate manufacturing, branding, and distribution by themselves--in other words, bypass the middleman and straight to customers.
 
I am compiling the list of companies based in the Southeast that manufacture their own products and sell them by themselves, primarily through e-commerce of their own websites. For this reason, I disregarded the companies like Raleigh Denim who make great products but still distribute them through brick and mortar shop like Barneys.
 
I was able to come up with the following short list through sources like Garden and Gun, but would like to make it longer. I'm open for any businesses and it doesn't haven't to be a clothing company. Any suggestion gentlemen?
 
Strong Boalt
Palm Beach, FL
-swim shorts
 
Makr Carry Goods
Winter Park, FL
-leather goods
 
Lumina Clothing
Raleigh, NC
-shirts & tie
 
Baltz Fine Writing Instrument
Raleigh, NC
-pen
 
Peter Nappi
Nashville, TN
-shoes
 
imogene + willie
Nashville, TN
-denim
 
Pointer Brand
Nashville, TN
-denim
 
 
P.S. Does anybody know where Dapper Classics is based? The review by Put This On describes their socks are made in North Carolina by a third-generation mill but I wonder if that means the business itself is based in NC. The website only states it's made in USA.

I really like this thread idea, but think it might get more response in the men's closing forum. Would you like me to move it?

I wasn't sure whether posting in Men's Clothing was adequate because I also wanted some non-apparel businesses, but you are right. I guess I will get more response through there. I just created it on there with some minor editing. Thanks for the suggestion.
