    what is still made in the usa, besides some quilted blankets and teddy bears in vermont?

    the things I can think of off the top of my head:

    AE shoes
    Alden Shoes
    New Balance (probably not even all of them?)

    Anyone in specific seek out things made in America? If so, please share...

    Panta and Epaulet among the most notable of the style forum brands.

    Cego custom shirts in NYC

    I'm becomming a big fan of the idea of 'Made in the USA' these days.

    A fair amount of BB stuff - suits, sportcoats, belts, shoes, some dress shirts, an occasional sport shirt and TIES, lots of ties from Long Island City, New York.

    All my MTM and Bespoke suits are manufactured in the U.S.A. Its great for small businesses to make locally and good for quality control keeping those supply lines short. Cloth is always European of course and my shirts are made in England. I make the shirts in England because I could not find a good American factory for shirts.

    I agree- it must have been two years misspent in cesspool.

    Try the Continuous Lean's American List.

    Ralph Lauren has a number of items made in the US, across the board really.

    A number of the SW&D sponsors here are small boutiques that feature a lot of made-in-america, especially denim, if you discount that much of the raw denim is first made in Japan.

    As opposed to made by Mexican people in the US? ... or made by Polish people in England? Myself, I tend to favour things made by Chinese people in China.

    Noble idea trying to support American jobs from the ground up. Buying American is really hard to do.

    Just try to buying a light bulb these days.
