That makes sense.

No golden arches either...it's in a restored victorian home with pretty much no signage. I always imagine familes frantically driving around, kids screaming in the back seat for their McNuggets, trying to find it.

Thanks FB, I just went on an interesting 'net tour of a number of custom US motorcycle builders. Tried to rep you, but gotta spread the love more.

That's not true. We were shocked to see Made in China and Made in mexico on their labels. The LLBean rep told us very little (less than 1/3) is made in maine anymore.

I shop LL Bean because they stand behind what they sell, no questions asked, no matter how long you have had it.

You would be hard pressed to find anything that is not made in China these days.
Kinda' like Japanese products in the 60's and 70's.
I remember whenever us kids broke something, we'd say, "Must be made in Japan!"

Greetings,
Have you ever wondered if everybody in America boycotted these clothes made in other countries?
Would it bring the work back? You know they pay other countries hardly any pay for making the clothes and then stick to us for the high prices... and I dont believe the quality is as good, when it was made in America.. Look how long they dont last in wear, tear or shrinkage or there colors fade easy..
Remember Sam Walton who started Wal mart, all was USA made...

Be Blessed

I really like Pendleton clothing. We once toured their factory in Oregon too. It is rather expensive though.

Last wool pendleton shirt I saw was an import...not sure if they're all imports now or what though.

There's a handful of clothing makers still in the U.S. Johnson Woolen Mills in Vermont still is last I heard (pricey but nice stuff). I know there's some more but I don't have a list.

L.L. Bean started catering to a new crowd (more of the urban type) years ago.

Getting to where I need to start making my own clothes more. Already make my own fur hats. Planning a set of buckskin clothes sometime in the next year. Making my own wool clothing shouldn't be too much harder to pull off...but I've never been the sewing type, always considered it more of a woman's thing but I think it's a necessary skill now...
