    Most interesting: guess which brands are made there, often the exact same shirts with different labels sewn in?

    Brooks Brothers (of course)
    Mark McNairy
    Jack Spade
    Vineyard Vines
    Southwick
    Club Monaco
    Epaulet (odd because I thought they were made elsewhere)
    A couple of other boutique brands

    Jack Spade and Club Monoco are all China made that I have seen.

    I've not seen Club Monaco shirts like that but it wouldn't surprise me. They've started to offer American-made tailored clothing in an A Continuous Lean approved attempt to be more authentic or whatever. The stuff is sometimes nice, but as a Canadian the whole thing comes off as ridiculous. "Club Monaco, New York", really?

    The best part was seeing MM New Amsterdam labels and Brooks Brothers labels on the exact same pink Oxford shirt

    I wonder if Black Fleece shirts are made in the same factory? There is a significant difference in quality between regular BB OCBDs and Black Fleece OCBDs, the fabric on latter is much better.

    I believe they are. Some BB OCBDs are made overseas - only the better models are made in the USA
