Advertures in the Closet
Like many people who live in post-Walmart, small-town America, if I don't want to buy my clothes at Walmart (and I don't feel like going out of town), I have to get them by mail order. Looking through my closet yesterday, I noticed that the places my mail order clothes (from American companies) were made looks like a set of destinations on a travel guide for Asia.
Then I noticed the clothes I have from TravelSmith (the home of the best travel concert clothes as well the green sweater I seem wear almost every day, and wear in most every photo) . . .
were made in the U.S.A.
When I bought this vest from L.L. Bean nearly thirty years ago (and I still wear it) . . .
just about everything you bought at L.L. Bean was made in the U.S.A.
What's in your closet?
