I was excited to read this week, that Target is joining the made in America trend by adding some locally made collections to their ginormous offering of products.
Unfortunately 1. It seems the collection will be online only. Call me old-fashioned but I like trying clothes on before I buy them, touching the fabric and feeling the fit.
And 2. It’s all menswear! (at least for now) But whenever the hashtag is lumbersexual, I’m definitely interested.
But, hey, wait a minute. So far, throughout being on a not made in China challenge, I’ve actually stumbled across a lot more trendy and modern menswear made in USA, than I have women’s.
This challenge was not about making my husband look hotter and me looking standstill-ish at all (believe me), but it seems the industry is kind of working against me. Want proof? Just check out the rugged, sexy (spend-lots-of-money) websites of Iron & Resin, Tellason and 3sixteen.
One of the latest purchases we made for hubby was a red brushed flannel twill shirt from Pendleton Woolen Mills, which we picked up at The Reserve Supply Co. in Houston for around $100. Great quality, perfect fit, American-made.
It even inspired his young nephew to jump on the “lumbersexual” trend! Well, thankfully, more like #lumbercute.
Guys, you’ve got it good.
