Billy Reid Goes the Extra Mile to Make Menswear in America

Billy Reid Goes the Extra Mile to Make Menswear in America

from The Manual – Fashion and Style section, Beau Hayhoe

Billy Reid

It’s an approach that brands have shied away from in recent years for a variety of reasons. “It’s not always easy … it is a little bit of a puzzle,” Reid says. But that made-in-America approach, which includes fall-ready pieces like the standout denim shirt, has benefits for the consumer, both in matters of style and substance.

“I guess it started in the beginning [of the brand] – I was making many things in the Garment District in New York,” Reid said by phone from his brand’s Florence, Alabama, headquarters recently.

Reid has carried over many of those same close-knit garment-district relationships into the present day, partnering with smaller, family-owned businesses to produce gear that every guy can appreciate, including the American Woolen Company. The company develops all the textiles for Reid’s handsome suits that are so stylish and easy to wear that any guy can dress each individual suit piece up or down. It’s true American versatility at its finest.

Other unique American companies like GIL Sewing, a minority, women-owned business of out Chicago produces the brand’s rugged workwear shirting, while NYC’s Studio One Leather Design makes pieces like the edgy, seriously cool Blake Leather Jacket.

Other surefire staple pieces, such as the brand’s excellent garment-dyed slim jeans – which we’d pair with a white Oxford shirt and a navy blazer – are timeless, investment-worthy additions to any wardrobe, complete with the added care of being made in the U.S.

So, why do things the hard way?

“That’s really more of a personal thing,” Reid said. “The longer you work with someone, the better it gets.”

That continual advancement is evident both in terms of construction — the Denim Shirt, for instance, is exceptionally well-made – as well as the variety of styles Reid offers. The crisp, cleanly designed Msl 1-Pocket Shirt is but one example of a piece that can be worn with anything, consistently — all the better given that you’re spending some hard-earned cash on it.

Does Reid have a favorite from his American-made offerings, though?

“They’re sort of like all your children,” he joked. “We’re making beautiful textiles with these people.”

The brand, Reid says, is all about “true American luxury” – that’s a stance we can get behind, and that approach isn’t changing any time soon. “We kind of live it every day – it’s hard to get away from it.”

You can check out all of Billy Reid’s Made in America gear from shoes to candles to socks to suits at the designer’s official website.

Listing of American clothing manufacturers – Retail

Listing of American Clothing Manufacturers – Retail

This is a re-post of my most popular blog entry. Many weeks/months have gone into investigating and maintaining this list. Because brands come and go, there will be some names that are no longer available, just like there will be new names that appear out of nowhere.

Below is a list of clothing made in the USA found in retail stores. I have been searching for the last seven years for clothing and accessories made in the USA.  I know this list is woefully incomplete but it is probably the most comprehensive list compared to any of the other lists.. This list has gotten exponentially larger than when I first started this project in 2011.

For  more complete tips on finding American made clothing see my blog entry: Clothing Made in USA – Best Tips to Buying.

For those seeking clothing made in the USA, certain types of clothing are the easiest to find, they would be:  T-shirts especially for young adults; Sports jackets; Hawaiian shirts and socks. Best bets for stores that carry American made clothing are some higher end department stores like Nordstrom’s or their discount store: Nordstrom’s Rack. Other places: visit your neighborhood stores, many local shops have a better selection of American-made clothes than your chain stores, examples: Marine Layer (San Francisco, CA),  Carried Away Boutique (Pacific Grove, CA), Blooming  (which is 100% American – Mendocino, CA).

USA Made Clothing Through the Internet

For finding clothes made in the USA only via the internet,  there are a great number of companies that sell only through the Internet. Many of these companies can become popular and eventually will show up in brick ad mortar stores, check out my link : Listing of Brands of Clothing Made in the USA via Internet. I am not the only “Made in USA” website, in fact, there are over 100 of them, I have organized them by alphabetical order and have said a sentence about each one on my link: Best Made in USA Websites. Once again, the list of American Clothing Manufacturers (brands) – Retail is far from complete, I will update them periodically. (Last update: May 4,2018)

14 American-Made Clothing Brands You Can Wear With Pride

Here is a great list from Good Trade

Made in USA

In our search for ethical products, we’re constantly looking for brands that value transparency and quality and reject the practices that surround cheaply made fast-fashion. We’ve found that buying for quality is one of the keys to simple and sustainable living. When we purchase something that lasts, we consume less and live a simpler life. Additionally, transparency allows us to understand where our products came from and the impact they have had on people and planet along every step of the supply chain. American-made clothing brands make a persistent bet on long-lasting quality and radical transparency.

We’ve searched for our favorite men’s & women’s American-made clothing brands making high quality basics like denim, tees, sweatshirts right here in the USA. Beyond just the basics, we’ve added a few brands that make formalwear, bridal wear and lingerie. Check out these brands keeping their design and manufacturing in the USA.

Baldwin Denim & Collection

Based In | Kansas City, MO
Best For | Raw denim

Founded and designed by Matt Baldwin, Baldwin Denim & Collection is a Kansas City-based clothing and lifestyle brand, founded on modern design, quality textiles, and American manufacturing. Baldwin is an all-time favorite of ours, not just because of our love for Kansas City, but because each design stems from both East and West Coast influences put through a modern filter of the Middle of the country. Their men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections capture a timeless modernism.

Often referred to as the company that made “the greatest hoodie ever,” American Giant believes in exceptional quality materials and customer service. Typically, 80% of what we pay to traditional retailers has nothing to do with the production of the garment; American Giant ensures that 100% of your purchase supports their USA-made and 100% cotton apparel. They shy away from traditional marketing methods like billboards and the appeal of brick-and-mortar stores, and instead invest in selling directly to American consumers and providing them with outstanding service. With cotton grown and sewn in the Carolinas, relentless attention to detail, top-of-the-line fabrics, and custom hardware, you’ll feel super comfy and proud to wear one of their sweatshirts.

Two Blind Brothers: NYC Clothing

For those who are against charity and helping others, this article is not for you. Two Blind Brothers is about raising money for research to cure blindness by selling made in USA clothing. Plus, the founders take no salary (unlike the Fake President).

About Two Blind Brothers

Lady Liberty

The Brothers

At a young age, Bradford and Bryan Manning were both diagnosed with an eye disease that causes blindness over time. This condition has inspired a special vigilance for details, a passion that carries over into the construction of their clothing line. They are both graduates of the University of Virginia and currently live in NYC.

The Apparel

The apparel is sophisticated, noticeable yet understated, expertly tailored, and intricately crafted: all design decisions are informed with a New York influence. The brothers are involved in every step of the creative process, from choosing fabrics to developing the design aesthetic. Their focus is on ensuring the high quality and careful craftsmanship of each article of clothing.

The Gund


The Mission

The production is located in the heart of the fashion district in New York City. Despite the first-rate nature of the designs, fabrics, and assembly, the value to the customer is extraordinary compared to other luxury designers because the brothers fund the operation without being paid a salary. All profits are instead donated to life-changing research to cure blindness.

Fashion With a Perspective

Over 180 million people worldwide live with vision impairment


The founders take NO salary. 100% of profits go to supporting research


The research is directed by a team of experts in biotechnology


The fabrics, designs, and construction are sourced in the heart of NYC

Editor’s Note – What is Wrong About Charity?

Several years back, 2012, to be specific, I was absolutely floored when I came upon an article from Made in USA Blog entitled “What’s Wrong with Tom’s Shoes”, which decimated a charity program. I had always felt that everybody, and I mean everybody, no matter what religion, no matter what country,  valued doing good for others – charity. But this self-described Libertarian felt that Tom’s Shoes which donates a pair of shoes to extremely poor people with every pair of shoes purchased was a disgrace. I had attempted numerous times to discuss the notion that charity is not bad, but he deleted all of my responses (except this one [linked above] which is sort of frozen in a time capsule). Obviously, Made in USA Blog will think that this company Two Blind Brothers is also a disgrace.

I have found that the more wealthy a nation is, the less charitable, the nation becomes. This is not only true for nations, but, in general, it is also true to individuals as well. Compared to the United States, the wealthiest nation in the world, people of the Old Testament and The New Testament were much more charitable and giving to the downtrodden and poor than our”modern society”. Americans believe charity begins at home, but not at their home and not in their neighborhood. We, Americans have no problem with concept of charity (except for the Libertarians who feel that helping anybody is a sin) but they expect others to do it but not themselves.

We can only theorize why the more wealthy one is, the less charitable one becomes.  Theory #1) Proximity. The closer one is to the poor and downtrodden, the more one can empathize. The poor are actually much more charitable to other poor (than the wealthy), even though they have less they can afford to give away. It is because they know the struggles – the pain, the cold, the hunger, etc. If you never see the poor and the down-trodden, then the poor become more of an abstraction than real, living, breathing humans. They are no longer part of “us”, but they become “them”. And “them” are always the enemy.

2) Politics of the Wealth. The wealthy know they have it good. And, obviously the wealthy want to keep it that way. In order to keep their wealth, they have found creative ways to maintain it. In order to avoid paying “fair wages”, the wealthy have always opposed unions. Then, they opposed Communism and Socialism – movements which  supported fair wages. Their omnipresent message was so persuasive that Americans soon demonized the word Communism, Socialism and Unions. The rich still continue to strive to decrease pay for workers and they do their best to defeat unions. They have been unbelievably successful. In the 1950s and 1960s, about 50% of private companies were union companies. Now, only 7% of private companies have unions. How did they do this? First, the wealthy moved companies out of union entrenched cities and moved them to non union Southern states. Then, they double-crossed these Southern states who had become dependent on these jobs by creating Free Trade treaties and off-shoring American jobs to poor third world countries. The outsourcing of good paying jobs, especially manufacturing jobs has created a downward trend in American salaries. And the salaries are still going nowhere (and The Federal Minimum Wage has not even come close to keeping up with inflation). In 2017, here in the United States, one can work full time at the Federal minimum wage and still not get out of the Poverty line. Ponder that for a moment. Everyone that works at minimum wage is poor. It means millions more each year become poorer and poorer, while the rich get incredibly rich. Today the top 0.1% have as much wealth as the bottom 90%. And the top 5% now own 70% of all the wealth.

So, what do the rich to deal with the poor. Do they develop a conscious? Do they open up their pocketbooks? Do they $20 out of their $100 million portfolio? No, instead, they create a lie. The Libertarian lie. “If you help people they will all become dependent on it.” That is pure balderdash. Sure there are few scammers, whether they are homeless, or drug addicts or CEOs (Martin Shrkeli or Bernie Madoff),  most non-Republicans, they are honest, see The Charity that gives cash to the Poor from NPR. The wealthy believe their own lies (because they live in their own bubble) and that is why they don’t give to the poor.


3) Wealth has become a religion. Being wealthy wasn’t enough, making money has become its own reward. Money has become bigger than the “Golden Calf”. In fact, the worship of money has become bigger than Jehovah, Jesus, Allah and Buddha combined. The United States no longer worship the Bible. “Christian” people say they are “religious”, but never attend church, have never read the Bible don’t know the lessons and certainly do not follow the tenants of Jesus. (But still, somehow, they are still Christian). In the United States, its citizens have been brain-washed into worshiping money. Even poor people, no longer hope of getting into Heaven, but, hope to get rich instead. Actually, the poor, even if they sin frequently, have a better chances of getting into Heaven than they are to get rich, especially, now, with how things are so stacked in blocking people from climbing the ladder to success. With the worship of “$$” comes its philosophy – “Capitalism.” The motto of Capitalism is make money however possible, hook or by crook. Having a conscious will impede you ability to get rich. Leave your principles behind. There is no better examples of this than the Trump family and the modern GOP. Even with the confession of Trump Jr. trying to collude with America’s archenemy, the Russians, to cheat and steal and election, the Trumps see nothing wrong with this. In fact, the GOP is also perfectly fine with this. As long as you win, that is what counts. The Ends justify the means. How Machievellian our society has become. The modern GOP worships money. Take today’s example: the GOP is trying to pass TrumpCare 2.0 wil which end healthcare for over 20 million Americans and severe cut Medicaid – which aids the elderly, the disabled and the Poor. All, so the rich can get a bigger tax break. Is there ever a stronger message about the present Republican Party stands for? The GOP should actually read that Bible they say they hold so dear. Maybe they can learn some lessons. Maybe they can learn some principles? Maybe they can learn the teaching of Jesus. (They should not quote out of context sections of the Old Testament. If they are going to quote from Leviticus, then they should read all of Leviticus and follow all of Leviticus, like thou shall not wear clothing made of mixed fibers). Maybe then they can learn once again about the importance of taking care of the poor. Instead, the GOP worships money and capitalism – which means you should have no principles. That is why the wealthy and their syncophants don’t give to poor and that is why there is a modern and deliberate message to stop charity. This is the modern GOP message:Heil the rich! Ignore the Poor! But here is a message from me to this modern GOP party: expect big political losses soon. People still have principles, it will show up sooner or later. It is taking a little longer than expected.



Made in USA – Men’s shirts – Jeff

Source: 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.

Jeff – 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.

  • Encourage additional jobs in America.
  • Hands on approach, ability to work in the factory rather then sending emails and phone calls over seas.
  • Fast turns (3-6 weeks), over seas 6 months. 
  • Custom made product to our customer needs.

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.

Under Armour debuts ‘made in the U.S.’ gear

Under Armour Debuts ‘Made in the U.S. Gear – and tests what we think we know about manufacturing in America

From the Washington Post

Source: Under Armour debuts ‘made in the U.S.’ gear — and tests what we think we know about manufacturing in America – The Washington Post

January 30, 2017

The black sports bra and matching leggings that Under Armour began selling Monday don’t look particularly distinctive from the rest of the workout attire on its website.

But, in fact, the garments are different in a key way: They were made in the United States, marking a key milestone in the company’s ambitious bid to significantly rethink its manufacturing strategy.

They are the first batch of clothing to be made at UA Lighthouse, a sprawling Under Armour facility that opened this summer in Baltimore. A 35,000-square-foot design and product development hub, it is an anchor of Under Armour’s attempt to figure out how to make clothing in the United States — an unusual venture in an industry where manufacturing has largely been done overseas for a generation. About 97 percent of clothing sold in the United States is imported, according to the American Apparel & Footwear Association.

Just 2,000 of the garments are available for sale — 1,000 each of the bras and leggings — so it’s a small-scale start. But the process of creating them offers a look at what the future of Under Armour — and the wider apparel industry, for that matter — might look like. The company says that it was able to operate on a sharply shorter timeline for bringing the gear to market, and it says it believes the Lighthouse setup is cost neutral compared to making clothing overseas.

With President Trump talking frequently of finding ways to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States, Under Armour’s experiment might end up drawing particularly close observation from retailers and Washington alike to see if it can be a blueprint for similar initiatives.

Kevin Haley, Under Armour’s president of innovation, said that the process for creating garments such as the bra and leggings would typically take 18 to 20 months. For the Baltimore-made pieces, though, it took just three months.

Haley said that’s because the Lighthouse setup has enabled the company to compress the creation process in several ways. Perhaps most important, when designers and manufacturers are in the same building instead of on different continents, they can combine their contributions to the supply chain into a single step.

“The designer is sitting in the Lighthouse facility with the person who’s actually going to perform the operations to assemble that garment,” Haley said. “So the person who’s actually going to be putting it together is effectively going to be teaching the designer, ‘Look, here’s how to simplify this design and do it more efficiently.’ ”

Haley also said that the technology in the Baltimore facility has enabled speedier garment production. By using 3D body scanners, Under Armour can figure out how a certain piece of clothing is going to fit and flatter a body without going the traditional route of producing a physical prototype.

The company also hopes this setup will generally enable it to work in a more iterative way on clothing, allowing the team to fine-tune pieces after they’ve started to hit stores. In the future, Under Armour might ship out a small batch of clothes from Lighthouse and see how customers react to the gear before making tens of thousands of pieces of it. If shoppers, for example, say that a waistband is fitting a little snugly on a pair of shorts, they could tweak that for a bigger production run of that item. And being able to adapt to that feedback in real time could be powerful: It could be the difference between selling thousands of those shorts at full price, or having to mark them all down because shoppers were just lukewarm about them.

Here’s why it matters that making clothes in Baltimore could shave time off Under Armour’s speed-to-market process: because doing so has become something of a holy grail in the retail world. Because of social media, live-streamed runway shows and other cultural changes, fashion trends go boom and bust faster than ever before.

You might be tempted to think these tectonic shifts mostly matter for fashion companies and not for performance athletic brands such as Under Armour. But, in fact, exercise attire has become a deeply trend-driven business. Printed yoga pants, leggings with mesh paneling, workout tanks with strategically-placed cutouts: These popular looks are all riffs on what’s happening on the catwalk.

“It enables us to effectively pull forward materials, fabrics, textiles, yarns that the consumer maybe wasn’t going to see until 2018, 2019 — and bring that into 2017,” Haley said.

But speed-to-market wasn’t the only reason Under Armour pursued U.S. manufacturing capabilities. The company has a lofty goal of contributing to a revitalization of Baltimore by creating jobs at Lighthouse and a planned roster of other facilities.

So what kind of labor force was needed to create these garments? After all, jobs going overseas is only part of the reason that the United States’ manufacturing industry has contracted — many such positions have been lost to automation.

The company said some 50 people worked on this particular garment collection, including design, manufacturing, marketing and other roles. Haley said the headcount of workers needed to create the products in Baltimore was “not all that different” from if they were made abroad.

“It’s not like these are being made by a robot,” Haley said. “These are being made by human beings using advanced manufacturing methods.”

Lighthouse staffers also work on Under Armour sneakers, though, and that manufacturing process is one for which the company has been working for years to reduce the number of workers and steps needed.

Some competitors, Haley said, “could have 300 pairs of hands touching every shoe that moves down the line. Which is at some level crazy, in 2017, to be introducing all that room for margin for error at each step along the way.”

Ultimately, Under Armour hopes that Lighthouse is a proof of concept for a bigger global initiative to embrace “local for local” manufacturing. In other words, Under Armour gear sold in Brazil would be made in Brazil; gear sold in the United States would be made in the United States, and so on.

The goal, Haley said, is to show that “if we can make it here, we can make it anywhere. And if we can make it here, anyone can make any product here.”

Editor’s Note

The plan to build the plant in Baltimore was finished well before tRump (pronounced “Tee” “Rump”,  like in Tyrannasaurus Rex, also, commonly known as T Rex) was elected, so the IPOTUS (Illegitimate President Of The U.S. or IP for short) can not take credit for it, but he will try anyway. In fact, I had reported the Baltimore plant previously on my blog entry: Reebok Is Bringing Back Shoemaking in the USA about some shoe companies bringing shoe production to the USA. The Baltimore-made sports bra and leggings hit digital shelves Monday, a milestone in the company’s ambitious bid to completely rethink its supply chain.

Exercising at Night

Face it, the days (daylight hours) during wintertime are frightfully short, which means if you are going to be working outdoors there is a good chance that it will be when it is dark. And when it is dark, it can be dangerous. There is a company that specializes in clothing that can be seen at night. Its name is Illuminite. Below are two examples from Illuminite.
