The lady holding the picture works at Carhartt, a company making tough clothing in several plants in the U.S.  Last year Carhartt introduced their “Made in USA Collection” which consists of seven pieces of clothing that are made by members of our extended American family here in the states.  The clothing in the collection includes:

Duck Detroit Jacket
Double-Front Work Dungarees
Duck Active Jacket
Duck Active Jacket
FR Duck Active Jacket
FR Midweight Active Jacket
FR Relaxed Fit Straight Leg Jean

Carhartt has been making clothes in the U.S. since 1889.  And yes, Carhartt does produce clothing overseas.  But you know me.  I am not an all or nothing guy.  Carhartt has produced 57 million garments in America since 1998.  If you want to support our American family members, just buy the Carhartt clothes from the Carhartt “Made in the USA” Collection.  Click on this link for a great Carhartt video on the Collection.

Now get shopping!

  1. That is great that Carhartt is bringing some of its clothing manufacturing back to the United States a little is good, a lot would be better. I have not added them to my list of Clothing made in the USA until I actually see one in person. And I have seen a lot of Carhartt products. Great post. I definitely like to see more made in the U.S. stuff.-Jack A.
