You can’t have an effective buy American movement if the movement is not visible. With this brand of clothing, Made in USA Threads, now it can be.
I’ve been advocating the buy American movement for over a year and a half now. One thing I have been frustrated with is the lack of visibility the movement has. Livestrong has those yellow bracelets you see everywhere. The breast cancer group has pink ribbons on everything from neckties to linebackers. But where is the visibility of the buy American movement?
I’ve spent the last several months building this brand so that finally the buy American movement can have the visibility it needs to thrive. This brand is about quality American-made clothing at reasonable prices, and it says “Made in USA” right on the chest where everyone can see it.
Let me ask you, what does the logo on your shirt stand for? If you own a polo shirt, what does that little man on horse carrying a polo stick, or practically any other widely recognizable garment industry brand image, really stand for?
To me, it is a symbol of a clothing industry that once thrived in America that has now been outsourced to the lowest bidder in a global race to the bottom. It is a symbol of the underlying cause of a $500 billion annual trade deficit the U.S. incurs each year and the 9%-plus unemployment rate that comes with that enormous trade deficit.
I, personally, don’t care to wear that kind of symbol on the clothing I wear every day. I prefer to wear a shirt that says “Made in USA” on it!
What does that stand for? It stands for American jobs. It stands for investing in the future of our country and our communities. It stands for turning around a disturbing outsourcing trend that has slowly chiseled away at the foundation of our economy for decades. Finally, it stands for protecting the few remaining garment manufacturers left in this country before they too become the victim of outsourcing.
Made in USA Threads is a brand that is made in USA and is proud to show it. When I wear these clothes, I wear them proudly. So can you!
