The United States has a long storied history when it comes to what we wear. We were the first to make sneakers, jeans and a handful of hats, along with many other staples of a man's wardrobe. And while some might argue that little is still made in America, the reality is that there are a good many brands, both old and new, producing high quality clothing, shoes and accessories here in the States. And yes, it may cost more than the imported stuff, but that's because you're buying ethically-made pieces that support American manufacturing jobs. And what's more, if you ever have a problem with your purchase, these companies stand behind their products and will make it right for you.
