Not sure if this counts or not but all of my ballroom and latin costumes are made here in the USA. I've had a few made through the internet from Asian countries because they are cheaper than having a costume made here in the US but the quality was never as good as the costumes made here. You really do get what you pay for, and I now only have my costumes made here in the US.

Id also have to agree with guitars, noone can build a better Gibson or Fender. Other American products that cant be built better are pickup trucks. No matter how hard they try, other countries just cant do it right. Sure the Tundra and Titan are nice trucks (and fast), but they dont have the braun that a nice Super Duty or Ram have. Another thing that foreign countries cant make as good as we can is steel, just ask my brother who is a machinist. He routinely gets steel from other countries and cant begin to describe how bad it really is to work with.

Default Careful there, Steve-o

My father-in-law bought his Dodge truck 2 or 3 years ago, and was mortified to find that it was made in Mexico.

The best thing in life is still made in America:

U.S. bills are printed in Washington DC and Fort Worth Texas

U.S. coins are minted in PA, CO, CA, and NY

Materials for U.S. bills are supplied by Crane’s Paper of Dalton, MA.

Tidbit: U.S. bills are made from a blend of cotton and linen

I love this post, and it is so true with all that is happening in the US right now. I third the zippo, bought one 29 years ago for my Dad, after he passed I got it back and still have it, and yep it still works!
