Did you know there are a lot of sustainable fashion brands making clothing right here in the USA? These American clothing brands design and manufacture some of our favorite wardrobe essentials—like perfectly fitting denim and breezy summer dresses—right here, in our very own backyard!

When we invest in high-quality staples, we consume less and live more simply, which is why we like to invest in pieces from these companies keeping it stateside. If you’re looking for jean jackets and bottoms, check out the best USA-made denim brands!

Big Bud Press ideates and creates every piece it makes in sunny LA (say that five times fast!).
