It’s shear pleasure!


As I wrote last week, to his surprise Ralph Lauren recently discovered that you can actually produce clothes in this country.  As a result, our American athletes will be able to proudly wear uniforms made by members of our extended American when they compete in Sochi next February.  My mum who lives in Portland, OR alerted me to the fact that some of the wool for our Olympian’s uniforms is being provided by Jeanne and Dan Carver who run and own the Imperial Stock Ranch in Central Oregon.  I urge you to read about them.


About John Briggs

I live in Seattle and love telling stories about Americans, the places where they work and the things that they make. I have just published a book, Simply American, encouraging Americans to purchase American made products; the book can be ordered at

  1. Great link. Ralph Lauren has been making small amounts of clothing and shoes made in the USA. The clothing is under their retro Ralph Lauren brand (RRL). But is a very, very small amount. -Jack A
