Yes You Can Buy American Made Clothes!
Want to know about my new good looking and good fitting jeans?
Ok just for fun I’m thinking you said “yes.”
“We send the message to employees and patrons that as USA Made entrepreneurs “it is not all about money”. It is about standards of living, education, global security, employee’s jobs, well being of families and the future of new generations. It is also about helping our neighbor and the truly needy.”
That’s from the place I bought my jeans.
I bought them online from All American Clothing Company. Here is their Facebook page. I like buying American produced products. It’s not always easy but with the internet and some searches you can find more American made items than you probably realized.
These jeans are great and fairly priced. I was intrigued by this tag saying I could trace the jeans back to the cotton farmer. Hmm that’s cool!I did it and you can too. I just entered the number 941213680000 at this link http://www.allamericanclothing.com/traceability.html
And here’s what I found out.
The cotton in my jeans is from Robert’s Farm in Sumner County Kansas.
They had the cut and sew job done at Elk Brand Manufacturing facilities in Kentucky.
Then ended up being sent to me after I bought them online from All American Clothing Company in Ohio.
How great is that?!
Here’s a video about their Traceability and the cotton farmers
I’m really happy with the jeans. The Shop American Made idea isn’t new, and there’s more of it out there than you might realize.

More on the cotton farm:
Robert’s farm has been in his family since 1919 when his grandfather moved to Sumner County in search of better farmland. During his career, Robert has watched farming transition from a “way of life” to a state-of-the-art business that employs the latest technology. Today, he produces his cotton in a no-tillage system, solely using rainfall and with minimal use of pesticides.
American Cotton Growers – or ACG – and its farmer-owners are focused on developing high quality denim fabrics for our customers with minimal impact on the environment. We produce an average of 37 million yards of denim annually, enough to make 26 million pairs of jeans, every yard of which is grown, spun, dyed, and woven from the cotton our members produce. This denim process is a true, homespun phenomenon – American cotton literally created from field to fabric.
