Not made right here anymore.....

Proudly Made In the USA

Not anymore they aren't.


So I finally had killed a Carhartt jacket.

As the 'Polar Vortex" (cold Canadian air come a few weeks earlier than normal for those of you based in the real world) had come and reminded me that I needed to find a replacement for that worn out 10 year old Jacket.....

Sadly, when I went and looked at Carhartt outerwear, I discovered that ALL of the tags said something other than "Made in the USA"  Some said "Made in Mexico", others "Made in Bangladesh" One said "Made in Indonesia"...


NONE of the jackets I looked at said "Made in USA". Zero. None.

This changed somewhere around 2011.

Just something to think about next time you buy a jacket.

One more gone.

  1. Guess that means I'm not replacing my Carhartt with a Carhartt. That coat has lasted 8 years. The only reason I'm getting a new one is I've I lost 50 pounds since I bought it in 2006.
