If you want to buy Prada that's your bidniss. I'm buying jeans Made in USA.

Here's the definition from the horses mouth:

About Texas Jeans

Are Texas Jeans really 100% American Made?

Yes. All components on our jeans from the fabric, thread, buttons, zippers, etc. are made from vendors in the U.S.A.

***
I'll bet the Roundhouse products are 100% made in USA as well.
I'm not an attorney but I believe if something is not 100% made in USA it must say assembled in USA.

"Vendors"

That could simply mean that the guy who bought the cotton and other parts from overseas is an American that sold the stuff to an American manufacturer.

There are other, unconfirmed, indications that they use 100% USA grown cotton too.

Indeed. 100% = 100%

This is the direction Gerbing is moving in and I applaud them for it.
Their goal is to begin making all of their heated gear products 100% in USA, down to every last thread.

I own a number of the USA Jeans and can vouch for their quality and value.
You can even call the factory and speak to a human American and get personal service too.
A couple of years ago "Mary" checked the warehouse for me and got me a nice deal on some of their letover Humvee pants. Try that with crap made in China.

If I find some at the thrift store I will not hesitate to buy them.

I also noted the Levi's thing a year or so ago. I switched to Carhartt as well. Found a pair of Wranglers with heavier denim that fit pretty well for under $20. It seems like everything is changing at a faster pace in recent years.

You misinterpreted my comment about Prada, but that's ok. I don't buy or wear Prada jeans, btw. Everything you own and wear is 100% made in America?

I wish! But that is my goal.

We only buy products made or assembled in USA unless there is no other option. Vehicles, clothing, appliances, etc. I make an exception for Irish whiskey.

Case in point, yet another in an endless stream of cheap made in China toaster ovens just failed us. Short of buying a large commercial machine, it's impossible to find a toaster oven Made in USA, so we have to suffer with another cheap disposable toaster. The good news is it'll only last a couple of years before it's ready for the junk pile.

Another case in point - the optical mouse I'm using right now was made in China. It's only a couple of years old and it's failing. It's a mouse! It's not like it gets a lot of abuse. How does something so simple fail in 2 years of gliding around on a desk?
