Compared to, say, the 1950s, very little clothing (or anything for that matter) is manufactured in the United States. There are a few heritage brands holding on in the Northwest and the south; and brands that focus on weather-resistance and technologically advanced fabrics are often based here, where the technology originates. Additionally, many eco-friendly and sustainably-produced lines are made here so that specific standards are more easily upheld. But, what about fashion brands that aren't so niche?
Although it's been a while since big fashion labels like Rag & Bone could put "Made in New York" on all of their tags, they and a few other companies have remained dedicated to producing at least some if not all of their goods here in the states, even if outsourcing to factories overseas may be more cost-efficient in most cases. And as we know, the garment district needs all the business (and help) it can get if it's going to survive.
So, in honor of Independence Day, we've decided to highlight 25 of our favorite brands who've done their best to keep it domestic. Click through to learn a little bit about each one and have a fun and stylish Fourth of July!
