Cyber Monday, December 1st, 2014 is fast approaching. And what better way to show that you are interested in keeping Americans employed and adding new American jobs than by purchasing U.S. made goods.
Cyber Monday is a way to purchase items on-line and on Cyber Monday many of these companies are ready to give you some deals. So we will take a look at a few places that make things in the USA for Cyber Monday.
With regards to the very first item, what better way to show that you support buying American and that you do NOT support our greatest competitor and the recipient of over 14 million of our American jobs, which would be China. (China has passed the U.S. as #1 manufacturer in the world a couple of years ago and is expected to pass the U.S. as the number one economy in the world in the next two years). Show you hometown spirit by purchasing this T shirt from All American Clothing.
Next is this very stylish dress by the Mius collection. Mius is an on-line boutique that brings together several different American fashion designers.
Continuing on fashion for women is this heavyweight full zip hoodie by American Giant. American Giant has done very well since being mentioned by Diane Sawyer and David Muir segments called ABC News: Made in America.
And since we are looking at ladies outerwear, how about this brown plaid haunting jack from the Guideboat Company. Guideboat in not exclusively American, but it is all high quality and eclectic. Based in Mill Valley, California.
One more apparel item for the women. Undergarments for women, made in the USA, are difficult to find (the same goes for men’s undergarments), but there is one company which up until recently made only men’s apparel – it is Flint and Tinder.
Cyber Monday is not just about the women. There is just as much available for men. We shall start with a lambswool shawl cardigan sweatshirt from Ball and Buck. Ball and Buck started off with mainly hunting gear and apparel and has slowly expanded into nice comfortable clothing as well as dress shirts and shoes.
Next is a very nice dress loafer offered by dress shoe maker, Allen Edmonds. Allen Edmonds is offering a nice sale for Cyber Monday (like many of the other places listed here). Allen Edmonds has a fabulous selection of dress belts, dress shirts, dress pants as well as casual and golf shoes. Allen Edmonds is no longer 100% American made anymore as they do own their own shoe factory in the Dominican Republic, so read the label before you order.
Bills Khakis is one of my favorite websites in finding any sorts of men’s apparel. They have numerous sweatshirts, casual shirts, collared shirts, coats, pants, etc,etc. But for the cool weather a nice rugby shirt should keep you warm without getting to warm.
And finally, we have an accessory from All American Buckles who makes all their buckles here in the USA. The have a great assortment of buckles please visit their website at allamericanbuckles.com.
Have a Happy Cyber Monday. And support your local U.S. businesses.
