It’s July and it seems like a great time to talk about clothing “made in America”. Just five years ago, it was pretty hard to find clothing made in the USA. The main supplier that everyone has heard of is American Apparel. What’s exciting is now there are multiple brands for our Big Frog customers to choose from all grown, milled and manufactured right here in the United States.
With styles available for men, women and children there is so much to choose from. If you’re a woman who is over the boxy T, have no fear, as they have V-necks, U-necks, fitted, organic, sheer, cap sleeve, athletic and raglan. And let’s not forget those tanks too….camisole, racer back, spaghetti strap, and muscle. What’s your flavor? Shall we talk sweatshirts? With choices like pullovers, hoodies, fleece, zipped, sleeveless and cropped! The choices are plentiful and the best part is that it was MADE IN THE USA. Seriously, how can that not make you feel better about what you are wearing? It’s practically like wearing the flag as your undergarments…or did that just go too far?!
Of course, we can’t leave out our male counterparts, with almost as many options. Don’t forget about the kiddos (hello T’s, onesies, bibs, hats and hoodies).Shall I go on? Brands like Bella/Canvas, Anvil, American Apparel, Bayside and Next Level offer well over 50 styles (and once you add colors, the options are practically infinite). It’s a good feeling to be able to support American workers and some of our customers demand American made apparel. For instance, as Joe Mock (Big Frog of Plano) mentioned, “One of our customers, a Marine Recruitment Station insisted on purchasing clothing made in the USA. Fortunately, we had a wide selection from which to choose.” The price point is a tad higher for custom American tees, but it’s nice to know you’re supporting American workers.
Now go down to your local Big Frog and be an American! Create your 4th of July garb with stars and stripes or better yet, have one of our talented graphic artist do it for you ; Oh and have a safe and Happy Fourth!
