I believe Left Field, Rag & Bone, and Naked & Famous.

Those are the one's off the top of my head. I'm sure there are others.

Most of the LVC production has been moved to Turkey and Italy I think. Some might still be made in the US.

Just to add something to the list Engineered Garments for instance. So does Spurr, the Stronghold and some Rogan, I think.

Eh... not all RRL is/was US-made. I thought the OP wanted US-milled/US-made as there are any number of American brands: Glory, Rising Sun, Brave Star, Oak NYC, Rivi, Billy Reid, Loomstate (iirc), etc.

Well...RRL is your brand anyways, but the OP didn't seem to specific with his question. So, I just assumed he meant brands produced in the USA.

I hadn't seen pictures of that Left Field denim until just now (saw BiG put it on their website, but they didn't have any pictures up at the time). Oh my...

Most of the "finished" LVC pieces, as well as the jackets and other non-denim pieces are made overseas, but, as far as I know, all rigid/raw LVC jeans are still made in the USA. The denim used, however, differs in origin...some of the denim comes from Japan, some comes from Cone here in the US.

Hell, if that's the case then even Sugar Cane could be considered a US-produced brand.

I saw LF in person for the first time back in Jan. Very interesting denim that I wouldn't mind giving a try.
