USA Made Clothing

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 American 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 15 brands keeping their design and manufacturing in the USA.
