29. Interesting point.

There are American, unionized companies that are making high quality, affordable sweatshirts, sweatpants, tee shirts, jeans. Those products cost no more than the Chinese made stuff, but last a lot longer. I purchased several pairs of USA made jeans about 9 years ago. They cost less that Levi jeans of the same design, a lot less. I wore them as walk around jeans for about four years, then turned them into work jeans when I did dirty yard work, that went on for about three more year before them began to show serious wear.

Why donít we hear about American clothing companies? They put a large amount of their profit into worker pay and benefits, so they canít afford splashy tv, online, and radio ads. They sell to people that make an effort to find them or via word of mouth.

If you want to look up some of those companies, send me DU mail. Some people get wigged-out if I post such stuff in posts.
