Do you care if your wardrobe is made in America?

    How much of what you own/wear is made in America?

    With the election season upon, the forefront of each campaign is what CAN we do to provide more jobs and get the US economy back on track. I'm sure all of us (at least the Americans) agree with these points. I was just wondering if we all practice what we are trying to preach, that is to say -- we're actively trying to support this cause.

    Does purchasing made in American products resonate with you?

    I'm in Canada and I have several pairs of US made shoes. Does that count?

    None of my suits, odd jackets or ties are made in America. Most of my casual wear is: Left Field pants, Filson outerwear, several jackets by 8.15 August Fifteenth. My parka is from Empire Canvas Works. Gittman Bros. shirts.

    What an pointlessly assumption-laden OP from someone who clearly hasn't bothered to take a look around SF and find out where people are actually from.

    Sorry for falsely assuming the site was mainly US based. I think it was probably the US flag avatar that did so. All I meant to say was, do you care about supporting local fashion, whether that be US, Canada, or Italy -- or do you prioritize the trend / personal style?

    For the local MTM items, were they actually manufactured in the US?
