Made in USA – Men’s shirts – Jeff

The other day I was looking at Nordstroms and found this very nice T-Shirt. I looked at the label, like I always do and it said the brand was “Jeff”. I had never heard of the brand so I looked at where it was made, and to my delight it said “Made in USA”. Because of this, I felt it was important that I highlight this company that had come so far that it came to be brought into Nordstroms. Being a chronic follower of “Made in USA” clothing, I still find several new labels every few months. I think there are not as many new labels coming out as there were a few years ago, but there are new labels.

Jeff makes high quality shirts all made in the USA.

Top Ten Reasons to Buy USA Made Products:

10) Foreign labor standards allow unsafe worker conditions in many countries. When you buy American you support not only American manufacturers but also American workers, safe working conditions, and child labor laws.

9) Jobs shipped abroad almost never return. When you buy goods made in the USA, you help keep the American economy growing.

8) US manufacturing processes are much cleaner for the environment than many other countries; many brands sold here are produced in countries using dangerous, heavily polluting processes. When you purchase American-made product, you know that you’re helping to keep the world a little cleaner for your children.

7) Many countries have no minimum wage restrictions, or the minimum wage is outrageously low. When you choose products made in the USA, you contribute to the payment of an honest day’s wages for an honest day’s work.

6) The growing lack of USA ability to manufacture many products is strategically unsound. When you seek out American-made goods, you foster American independence.

5) The huge US trade deficit leads to massive, unsustainable borrowing from other countries. Debt isn’t good for you and it isn’t good for America.

4) Foreign product safety standards are low. For example, poisonous levels of lead are in tens of millions of toys shipped to the USA. When you buy toys and other goods made in the USA, you can be confident that American consumer protection laws and safety standards are in place to protect your family.

3) Lack of minimum wage, worker safety, or environmental pollution controls in many countries undermines the concept of “fair and free trade”. No Western nation can ultimately compete on price with a country willing to massively exploit and pollute its own people. When you buy only American-made products, you insist on a higher standard.

2) Factories and money are shifting to countries not friendly to the USA or democracy. When you avoid imported goods in favor of American-made items, you help ensure that the United States doesn’t find its access to vital goods impacted by political conflict.

1) As the US manufacturing ability fades, future generations of US citizens will be unable to find relevant jobs. Buy American and help keep your friends and neighbors-and even yourself-earning a living wage.

About Jeff

Growing up in Brooklyn, New York was an amazing experience by itself but working in the apparel business from a young age of 15 has given me the essential background to initiate a dream of creating luxury product right here in the United States of America. Instead of manufacturing in other countries like most brands do, I take pride in re-building the American sector of made in USA and handcrafting visionary product here in the northeast.

The brand Jeff offers tailored hand made men’s shirts, all made in USA.  We are using the finest & most inquisitive fabrics to craft our luxury brand.  A superior tailored fit combined with precision sewing details is what you will savor from our luxury product.

We are proud to say we are one of only few made in USA luxury fashion brands for men. We hope you enjoy our product and appreciate the importance of made in U.S.A.



Our Factory

Located in the Northeast since 1964.

In 1964, the owner started making shirts in his mother’s basement. The son of a presser and a seamstress, the teen knew very little of the serious mechanics behind shirt making, but he built a knowledge of the craft with curiosity and intuition. Constantly diversifying his craft, his first clients were local musical acts that made it big under his tailoring: The Rascals and Vanilla Fudge, among them. After working with companies out of the Midwestern United States for years, and growing tired of the lack of attention paid to detail and cut, he settled on his own factory in the northeast.

It was here that he gleaned better pattern making skills, growing his enterprise tailoring shirts for gentlemen who took notice to his careful eye.

In the decades that followed, the family persistently pursued perfection of its craft. Practicing what some describe as a dying art, growing the business not only as premier custom shirt maker but as one that designers and men’s boutiques would seek for wisdom to create their shirts at this facility.

Today, the family owned operation is one of the last remaining American custom shirt makers with all manufacturing still based in the USA. With resilient devotion to perfection, the family celebrates innovation while respecting the art of the old world. Decades of flawless craftsmanship, our custom shirts are made by artisans who have been sewing for generations and bring all their history and skill to each individual garment they make.

Today we are proud of the business our family has built and currently sharing with many great brands around the world.
