Sewn in the U.S.A.

Everyone wants to support their home team. A Consumer Reports survey found in 2015 that almost 8 in 10 respondents preferred buying American-made products, while more than 60% said they were willing to spend as much 10% more for them. While the increased globalization of manufacturing makes truly American-made products ever-harder to find, some clothing brands have held out to keep their products part of the fabric of America.

Stetson

One of the most iconic and enduring symbols of the American West, Stetson hats were first manufactured by John B. Stetson in Philadelphia beginning in 1865. Inspired by a trip out West, Stetson designed the durable, waterproof hat — originally known as "The Boss of the Plains" — to suit the needs of Westerners with a high crown and a wide brim to protect against the elements. While the Philadelphia factory closed in 1970, the beloved western-style cowboy hats are now produced in Garland, Texas by the company Hatco under license from Stetson for customers in North America.

The company faced a class action over the claim that was settled this year, which was good enough for the U.S. military to sign a $17.3 million contract to buy sneakers for basic training.
