Wearing clothes made in the USA isn’t quite as hard as you thought. Shopping in a retail store and online is two different scenarios. Many of the brick and mortar stores have to keep their spaces stocked with lots of clothes in order to make a profit. Hence, many clothes from other countries abound.
When you are shopping online, it seems that it’s much easier to find stores that sell USA made. Many small business owners that don’t want to open a large store and yet have a great product can be found on the internet Like Wickers, which makes a variety of underwear, boxers, socks and more.
Let’s take a look at nonetz.com, maker’s of boys swimwear.
