Its habit that every time I shop for something I look for American made products.

Post brands that you know have USA made ((offerings)) that most people probally wouldn't

Off the top of my head of things I've seen or bought..

-Carhartt
-anchor hocking (dishes/glassware
-party peacock (plastic ware) sold at Walmart
-new balance (shoes)
-rocky wool socks (don't know about the boots)
-HDX (Home Depot branded tools)

There's lots more I'm just drawing a blank ATM.

Clothing is the hardest to find USA made so hopefully someone knows of a few clothing brands.

Got one made in Mexico and a newer one made in USA.

Most of the ones on the rack were Mexico made though.

Made in America's Heartland.


Went out to Cabela's and noticed a lot of the Buck Knives are made in the USA. They still have a long ways to go after damaging their name by selling garbage Chinese knives for so long.

Bully tools

Pointer Brand Jeans.

You're calling J-Crew "hipster'? Yuppie, preppie, but definitely not hipster. It's the antithesis of hipster.

Calphalon cookware is damn good stuff and made in Toledo, Ohio.

Textiles is a training wheels industry. I don't really give a damn where my clothes are made.

Besides, manufacturing is the only game in town. For every Chinese made thing you buy, someone here had to unload it at a port, move it to a train, rail it across the country, truck it to a distribution point, move it again to a store, stock it, and market it for you to buy it. That's a lot of American hands at work.

I have american carhartt jackets. you have to check, the under 100$ ones are usually mexican. I just picked up a realtree light 2x for like 130ish or so at tractor supply and it was the ONLY usa carhartt.

most us manufacturers have some things imported, if not all. still OP is GG for trying to support US economy instead of sending more money to china

off the top of my head:
Benchmade
Spyderco
Snap-on (most of snap-on non-electric tools, and no bluepoint)
Channel-Lock
Proto (stanley owned, but stanley is made in mexico)
J.H. Williams
Wright Tool Co
Starrett Precision Tools (90% american made- you got to look at the packages now)
Vaughn Hammers
Dasco Punches and Chisels
Toyo and Nitto Tires
Red Wings (Only the PECOS line, look inside the boot for sure)
H&H Boots
White Hat Holsters
Maudlin & Sons Stainless Shims
J H Case knives
Bunn Coffee Makers (the stainless steel industrial models like the A10, VPR series)
Wrangler Clothes (most of them still are USA made, eg. fire resistant models etc)
Stihl chainsaws and power equipment
Echo is made in usa but with import engines
Bad Boy Lawnmowers
John Deere (about 70% are. but unless you go bigger then 5 series SOMETHING will be chinese. eg:5105 is like a 60k$ tractor, but the front axle is a chinese spicer)
Case Equipment
Pelican cases
Boyt cases (copies of pelican, great quality)


pretty much anything you want you can find made in USA and it WILL be higher quality, except electronics.
Yeah, i have an iphone and my computer and tv's and playstations and shit are probably all chinese,
however our family exhausts all resources before buying import unless it's because of quality issues.
eg. rolex > all american watch brands, and so on, and so forth.
When you get ready to buy anything over 20$, google an american made version. chances are it can be had on amazon.

You don't have to be pro-union to prefer American-made products.

The OP may just want to avoid the tainted food and shoddy quality products that come from China.

Or, he may want to avoid supporting the economy of China, a notorious human-rights abuser and military enemy of the USA.

And, the quality of most products declines a good bit when production is moved overseas to China.
