J.Crew – Made in USA

J.Crew – Search. Following the lead of other companies (like Orvis) that have inserted a special “Made in the USA” section, J. Crew has added a Made in USA section. The current catalog lists only 39 items, which is 30 more than when I visited their stores last year. The have added Danner boots and premium jeans made by Wallace and Barnes. In other news, Lucky Jeans will be starting to manufacture some of their jeans back in the USA.

Advancement of the Made in USA Movement

I love seeing the small inroads here and there. I am finding more US Flag labels on products to indicate that they are Made in the U.S. I am hearing more people ask where their products are made. I see more products that, although, not legally necessary to say where they are made (like health and beauty aids) are saying that they are “Made in the USA”. And this year, two movies have been released about Made in the USA: Josh Miller’s Made in the USA: The 30 Day Journey and American Made Movie.

Keep up the good work, check the label and buy American. A quote from ABC News, if every American spent $1 a day on an American product, it would create one million new American jobs.

    The J.Crew Made in USA is for men’s items only. Great for you but not for me. Would love a Made in USA section for women’s and kid’s stuff too. For now, I find it easiest to search for “USA” items in the J.Crew search bar and that gives the women’s options as well.
