20 Best American Made Clothing Brands

20 Best American Made Clothing Brands From 

Unfortunately, not a whole lot of clothing companies operate this way. Simply put, it’s just easier for big brands to outsource the production of the clothing to countries with a lower cost of labor and a better manufacturing infrastructure. And honestly – we get it. It sucks that this is the way the global economy works, but it’s not necessarily something we’d hold against any brand. That being said, we do feel like it’s necessary to shine a light on some of the great stuff being done by the few men’s clothing brands that do still make their goods here in the states. So if you’re curious about the best American made clothing brands, look no further.

American Giant

Simply put, labor is more expensive here in the U.S. As a result – many of the picks you’ll find on this list tend to trend towards the pricier end of the spectrum. For some folks, that isn’t a big deal – but for others, high prices can lock them out of the market. Thankfully, there are brands out there like American Giant that are offering up quality apparel at an affordable price. Located in San Francisco, the clothing company has set itself apart due to its ability to offer up quality-made men’s basics for a reasonable price. Shorts, outerwear, great tees – you name it, they’ve got it.

A little less than a decade ago, designers Matt and Emily Baldwin noticed that their customers were increasingly asking for American-born workwear. Yet, when they started looking for things to stock, the couple simply couldn’t find much. Rather than wait for someone else to satisfy their customer’s demands, Matt started his own denim brand. Designed in Kansas City and built right here in the States, Baldwin is now ranked among the best menswear brands out there.

Some choose to produce their clothing in the states out of a sense of patriotism. Others out of a sense of necessity. Seattle-based outdoor clothing company Beyond chose to manufacture their clothing right here in the U.S. for a combination of those reasons. Not only does having their factories right here promote American labor, but it allows the technically focused apparel company to audit the quality of their products in real time – ensuring that you get the best of the best right out of the gate.

Bill’s Khakis

Quality never goes out of style. That is something the founder of Bill’s Khakis realized when, in college, he came across an old pair of khakis from the 1940s. They were like nothing he had ever seen before – comfortable, durable, and well made. Bills Khakis was created in an attempt to replicate this type of clothing. Of course, an integral part of all of this is building everything here in the states.

Birdwell Beach Britches

Birdwell Beach Britches aren’t a Southern-Californian staple for nothing. Made by hand right here in the U.S., these two-ply board shorts are sturdy enough to stand up to years worth of lazy days on the beach or out on the surfboard. The business itself, originally started as a family venture, has itself been based out of Santa Ana for over 50 years. We can’t imagine it going anywhere.

Brooks Brothers

Ok – let us just get ahead on this one. Not all of Brooks Brother’s clothing is made in the U.S., but according to Forbes, around 70 percent of their suits, 10 percent of their dress shirts, and 100 percent of their ties are made in the Northeastern part of the U.S. Given the brand’s size and prominence (they’ve been around since 1818), we find this pretty impressive.

Buck Mason

Started in 2013 with quality in mind, Buck Mason has quickly established themselves as among the coolest men’s basics brands out there. All of their jackets, jeans, and t-shirts are made not far from their original studio in Venice, California – making it easier for the team to get the best fabrics for their clothing. A great pick for guys looking to build out their everyday or casual clothing.

Ebbets Field Flannels

Named after the iconic ball-park in Brooklyn, Ebbets Field Flannels specialized in building out vintage baseball jerseys and caps. More than just re-using old designs, the Seattle, Washington based company uses old-school cuts and fabrics to give everything that extra authentic feel. Ideal for the guy looking to get some sportswear but doesn’t exactly embrace the New Era look.

Freemans Sporting Club

There was a period in time when just about any item of clothing was expected to last a long, long time. Freeman’s Sporting Club was started in an attempt to continue that tradition of building out quality menswear that will outlast its peers. They’ve been successful in accomplishing this, in part, because they are sure to use American tailors and sewers. When ever piece of clothing is ‘only a few hands removed’ from the original maker – that is just the type of quality you get.

Freenote Cloth

You can often tell a lot about a person by where they’re from. The same applies to companies. Based out of the San Juan Capistrano, Freenote Cloth embodies the same rancho aesthetic that their hometown has retained since its founding. Outside of having a distinct style, Freenote is also known for attention to detail. The fabrics, dye, and hardware used on all of their clothing is considered and intentional.

In much the same way that Levi’s got its start during the Gold Rush in Calfiornia, Filson earned its name outfitting fortune-seekers during the Klondike Gold Rush in 1897. But C.C. Filson didn’t stop when the gold was all dug up. From the late 1800s on Filson has continued to provide tough, durable goods made right here in the states because sometimes, the old way is the right way.

His first position in the men’s fashion world was working at Ralph Lauren’s shipping and receiving department in Texas. Eventually he found himself living in New York working as the Design Director at Polo Ralph Lauren.

Imogene and Willie

While most brands will trace their heritage back to the year they began, imogene and willie peg the start of their business to a pool party when they met in the 6th grade. The friendship they founded would endure decades, distance, and failed businesses. It wasn’t until 2009 that they started imogene and willie, a brand that expresses a love for the textures, sounds, and smells of Texas. While they specialize in denim, the brand boasts classic tees, denim jackets, and more – all built in the States.

Reservoir: American Made from New York to Michigan

Lifestyle Grand Rapids Magazine by Jesse Sheridan
American Made from New York to Michigan
Reservoir comes to Grand Rapids with its second location.

In the thriving Grand Rapids neighborhood of Uptown, Wealthy Street is home to many businesses, from bakeries to restaurants to local shops, like the new boutique Reservoir.

The boutique opened on Nov. 11 and sells a collection of American made brands.

Owner and curator Erin Murphy Doan shared a little about her inspiration behind the local shop.

“I started Reservoir as my own apparel label after working in luxury fashion for eight years in New York City. I soon discovered my love for other American made brands that shared my values of sustainability,” Doan said.

Doan opened her first store in Beacon, New York in 2012 and recently decided to open a second storefront.

“After five years of success, opening a second store seemed like the next move. I’m originally from Grand Rapids and our family spends almost half the year visiting friends and family here, so I couldn’t have imagined a better place to bring my store. I love the culture and artistic movement that is thriving in my hometown, and I am grateful I’m now able to be a part of that community,” said Doan.

The store carries a wide variety of products and brands to attract all styles.

“What I bring into the shop are simply things that I love myself. That said, my goal has always been to have a store where ‘there is something for everyone’ and from my perspective, it seems like I’ve been able to accomplish such,” Doan said.

The store offers apparel and accessories for men, women and children. It hosts independent labels, such as Kordal Knitwear and Fledgling Press as well as classic American brands like Pendleton, Fox River and Red Wing. Along with its outside brands, it also sells its own in-house label Reservoir.

At the roots, the shops are the same, but Doan is aware of the differences that could arise from New York to Michigan.

“While there are many similarities with the neighborhoods and styles of my shop, every place has its unique characteristics, I’m looking forward to the challenge, to discover the differences and work to run the best possible version of this shop for Grand Rapids,” said Doan.

Reservoir is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

Pharmaceutical Television Commercials – Ethical or Unethical

Pharmaceutical Television Advertisements – Ethical or Unethical

What is more American than the pharmaceutical companies? A Mega-company’s Board of Directors tells their shareholders that they are going to spend hundreds of thousands on research to develop a new drug, then spends thousands of dollars and several years on bureaucratic red tape to get their drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration. After the approval, there is the initial announcement of their new medicine, with spending of more tens of thousands of dollars to market to physicians, hospitals and directly to consumers. In this way, the pharmaceutical can feel justified in passing their outrageous expenses unto unsuspecting patients. Now, that is a true American success story.

Television As A Way To Market Directly to Patients

I like television commercials as much as the next guy, which means not very much. The exception is during the Super Bowl, in that case, it is the best part of the whole experience. Save this “Hyper Bole”, I would rather record a program, then skip through the commercials. But, some commercials that I do not always skip are the pharmaceutical commercials. Pharmaceutical commercials on television are a relatively new phenomenon. When these direct-to-consumer ads were first approved in 1997, the pharmaceutical companies started slowly and carefully, but, soon the industry exploded. Pharmaceutical companies now spend more than $5 billion per year on television commercials. Only New Zealand and the USA allow direct to consumer advertising of pharmaceuticals. I guess the drug companies want us Americans and New Zealanders to make our own diagnosis and pick their treatments based on their advertisements.


I do like some of the drug commercials. The ads are professionally done, they are mostly truthful and they announce the possible side effects (they are all said in a bullet-like rapidity and usually ends with “including death”). There are some ads that are actually good. For example, there is one commercial for an asthma medicine which shows a giant bear standing behind a man, squeezing the man’s chest while everyone looks on. The on-lookers seem not to be disturbed by the proximity of this giant bear or for the health of the man that is being bear hugged. Also, the bear releases the man once the aerosol is dispersed. It makes one wonder is this as asthma medicine or a bear spray? Maybe it is both.

The other commercial that is not too obnoxious is an ad for Diabetes. There is this happy, pudgy guy, dancing to an Earth Wind and Fire song, pouring out olive oil on the kitchen floor, trying to pull a lazy bassett hound and mowing a lawn in an oblong circle. They are fun to watch. (It is the music that makes the commercial).

But, then there are commercials that I am not sure how it sells the product. There are multiple examples of these, but the classic example is an erectile dysfunction ad – why are the couples sitting in separate single-person-tubs outdoors? Is that supposed to be sexy? Or relaxing?

How Expensive are these advertised medications?

When you spend thousands of dollars making a commercial and then buy time to show your commercial on television, you know that the medication they are plugging is going to be very expensive. You know it is not a company that is selling generic medications. But how expensive are these medications? Patients, or consumers as the Pharmaceutical companies refer to them, have no idea how much these medications cost and for the vast majority of physicians, also, have no idea either. I, only recently, have been able to find out the price of medications by employing an App called “GoodRx”, they also have a website.

GoodRx gives a list the 6 lowest prices of the medication at local pharmacies. By employing this App, you can instantly get idea how expensive a medicine is – without calling a pharmacist. This App, also, makes one aware that no pharmacy is consistently cheaper than another. Trying to figure out how much something costs and where it is cheapest on your own is a total crap shoot. I would recommend the GoodRX App if you are truly interested in pharmaceutical prices.

Let us go back to an example of eczema, which there is a new TV ad. A medicine that treats this condition – a moderate strength corticosteroid like triamcinolone, a 60 g tube costs less than $20. This will take care of most eczema. But, a newly advertised product, Eucrisa, costs $604 – $628 per month (this is based on having a coupon and polling the lowest-priced 6 local pharmacies – so, the price can be higher). So why get Eucrisa? Who knows. Is it 300 times better?

How prevalent is television pharmaceutical ads? Below is a list of commercials I saw on television in a couple of days. Listed is the product, the condition it treats and the cost per month (based on GOODRx 6 lowest prices with coupon). (Maybe you have seen one of these).

Taltz (Ixekizumab) Psoriasis $14,713 – $15,953

Stelara (ustekinumab) Psoriasis, Crohn’s Disease $9,739 – $10,196

Cosentyx (Secukinumab Psoriasis $9,036 – $9,460

Entyvio (Vedolizumab) Ulcerative Colitis $5,570 – $5,927

Victoza (Liraglutide) Diabetes Mellitus $836- $870

Eucrisa (Crisaberole) Eczema $604 – $628

Tresiba (Insulin degludec) Diabetes Mellitus $462 – $483

Entresto (Sacubitril/Valsartan) Congestive Heart Failure $453 – $471

Xarelto (Rivaroxaban) Arial Fibrillation, Deep Venous Thrombosis $407 – $423

Eliquis (Apixaban) Atrial Fibrillation, Deep Venous Thrombosis $407 – $423

Spiriva Respimat (Tiotropium) Asthma $389 – $402

Myrbetriq (Mirabegron) Urinary Incontinence $340 – $341


It is not unethical what the Pharmaceutical companies are doing, right? That is the $5 Billion question.

Unethical Issues

If the Television advertisements marketing directly to consumers isn’t totally unethical, there are some which are unequivocal, like Martin Shrekli increasing the price of Daraprim, the only antibiotic to fight a certain infection by 5,000%, Daraprim used to cost $750, but after Shrekli took over the company it is now according to Good Rx with coupon $45,909 – $48,048 for 60 tablets).

Other issues that are clearly unethical: 1) taking old time generic medications, getting them re-patented and mark up the price by 5,000 times. Examples: 1) colchicine for gout, a medicine as old and cheap as aspirin (todays cost according to Good Rx with coupon $80 – $179 for 30 tablets), 2) tetracycline -used to be one of the oldest and cheapest antibiotics, (Good Rx with coupon $292 – $575 for 60 tablets) and 3) albuterol inhalers used to be $5-$20, now $57 – $62 for one inhaler according to GoodRx with coupon).

The next issue is kind of unethical – it is taking two generic medications and combining them into one pill and giving that a new patent. (It is similar to what pharmaceuticals have been doing for many years: when a branded medicine is about to have its patent expire – pharmaceutical companies tweak something to the medicine – delivery system, changing a drug to extended release, changing to the active molecule, etc, then, they can have a new patent for the same medicine.) The two best examples of combining two generic medicines into one pill and then charging and arm and a leg for it are Duexis and Namzaric (not to be confused with Narnia).

Duexis is a medicine that is a combination of Ibuprofen (the same medicine as Advil), and Famotidine (Pepcid) an old stomach medicine. This “new medicine” will decrease the incidence of ulcers by 50% than by taking Ibuprofen alone. But if you bought each one separately, one can get 90 tablets of 800 mg Ibuprofen for $10 at WalMart and Famotidine 20 mg, 60 tablets at WalMart for $4.00. So how much should you pay for Duexis which is Ibuprofen 800 mg and Famotidine 26.6 mg? $100? $200? How about $2,313 – $2,422 for 90 tablets? If you were an insurance company with drug coverage, would you approve this medicine? Of course not.

Namzaric is an Alzheimers medication. It is a combination of the generic medicines: donepezil (Aricept) and Mematine (Namenda) in one pill. Generic Donepezil 10 mg, 30 tabs can be bought for a low as $9.05 – $54 (GoodRx with coupon), and memantine 10 mg 60 tabs can be bought for $23 – $123 (GoodRx with coupon). For Namzaric 28/10 (Mematine/Donepezil), it costs $405 – $421 for 30 tabs. But, the pharmaceutical company will argue that it is does not contain generic Namenda but its “newer” Namenda XR and that one can buy Namenda XR at exactly the same price as Namzaric. Oh.

American Pharmaceutical companies seem to typify the American business environment: Poor people pay outrageous prices so Mega companies can make millions of dollars in profits every quarter. My message is the next time a pharmaceutical television ad comes on, whip out your smartphone, and check out how much that drug costs on GoodRx.

American flag sales bask in new glory

In honor of the Fourth of July.

American flag sales bask in new glory this year from a surge in politics and patriotism.

American Flag Sales Bask in New Glory

MILWAUKEE — In the flag business, summertime is like Christmas. After Memorial Day weekend, there’s Flag Day (June 14) and the Fourth of July, which all give sales a healthy boost.

Eder Flag Manufacturing Co. in Oak Creek says it’s having a banner year. Sales are up 15% from a year ago, partly from 2016 being a national election year and political events needing flags.

An improved construction industry has helped, too, as new buildings often get new flags.

“Most importantly, we feel there’s a rise in patriotism,” said Jodi Goglio, chief operating officer at Eder, a company that has been making flags for more than a century and dates to 1887 when the Eder family started a business making pillows, felt pennants, rag dolls and hunting jackets.

For many flag companies, sales soared following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Eder made the flag that firefighters grabbed from a yacht and raised at New York’s ground zero on Sept. 11, a scene immortalized in a now iconic photo.

In the week following the attacks, Eder sold more than 3 million flag-related items — mostly flags but also things like flag lapel buttons. People stood in line for hours to buy a flag, and the company worked day and night to meet the demand.

“It was all hands on deck. Everyone pitched in wherever there was a need,” Goglio recalled.

The original flag in the Sept. 11 photo has been lost, and documentary filmmakers have spent years trying to track it down.

Flag sales drooped in the recession, partly from a drop in construction of new buildings and reductions in spending at many locations.

Now, with heated elections and patriotism, sales are on the mend. In the flag business, sales reflect the political state of affairs regardless of party affiliation.

“We don’t expect a decrease anytime soon. We feel it’s going to continue,” Goglio said.

Eder sells American flags, state flags, the flags of other nations and custom flags and banners.

The most popular versions of Old Glory measure about 3-by-5 feet, although the company has flags in stock measuring 50-by-80 feet, and it can make even larger ones on special order.

Eder keeps up with trends in banners but remains conservative when it comes to the American flag.

“We sell a very traditional product. If you looked at pictures from the 1940s and now, it’s very similar. We make a handcrafted product,” Goglio said.

An Eder flag measuring 50-by-80 feet weighs 119 pounds and is hand-sewn. Even the stars are placed by hand.

The company has 120 production employees, including flag makers who do hand embroidery and create banners for every nation in the world.

“It’s just amazing to see the personal touch they put into creating our product. We are really proud of that,” Goglio said.

One thing Eder won’t do is make offensive or controversial flags.

Last year, it stopped making and selling the Confederate flag following a wave of public reaction against the symbol of the Confederacy.

Likewise, it bothers Goglio to see someone flying a U.S. flag that’s damaged and should be retired with dignity.

“I think it mars the meaning of the flag,” she said.

Millions of U.S. flags are made in China, but Eder makes its banners in Oak Creek using American-sourced materials.

The company’s longtime owner, the late Eugene Eder, was a World War II veteran who believed strongly in fighting against bigotry, hatred and tyranny.

His experience in the U.S. Navy, along with the passion for flag-making instilled by his father, Morris, convinced him that American flags should be made in America.

“I feel as if there’s a growing demand for domestic-made goods in general. We are very proud to supply a symbol of the country made in the USA,” Goglio said.

Eder sells its flags through 5,000 independent dealerships, including the Flag Center, which has stores in Oak Creek and Wauwatosa.

Sales at the Flag Center are up from 2015, according to the company, partly from new construction that’s fueled a demand for both flagpoles and banners.

“Also, this year in particular, Wisconsin is in play politically. So we have done a lot of business with the campaigns on both sides of the aisle,” said Flag Center owner Tom Pluster.

Recently, Pluster’s business installed a 70-foot aluminum flagpole at the governor’s mansion in Maple Bluff, after the previous pole was damaged by years of exposure to the wind.

In the flag business, every day brings a different challenge.

A crane service was used to remove the old flagpole at the governor’s mansion and lift it over the building.

“That was a lot of fun,” Pluster said.
