The American List

http://acontinuouslean.com/the-american-list/

There are many Made in the USA lists throughout the internet, nearly all of them tacky and in poor taste. These awful websites have led me to compile a list of stylish and cool brands that make their goods in America. One of my goals with this is to make it easier to locate and buy domestically produced apparel products. Another motivating factor is my desire for things Made in the USA to be embraced by a younger, more stylish consumer.

Note that the * symbol after a brand means that only select goods are made here in America. Please feel free to suggest additions to mw [at] acontinuouslean [dot] com
