Jeans STILL made in the USA at Silberman's


A good friend of mine looked into the tongue of his boots the other day and shook his head.  "Made in china?  But these have an American flag in the tongue."  It is so hard to find "all American workwear" actually made in America.  Luckily, you can find many of them at

One maker that still manufactures in the United States is Carhartt. Just like Levis, Wrangler, and the like, they started out as a company making strictly utilitarian jeans. While their counterparts have hiked up the prices, and have often gone the way of strictly fashion, Carhartt still makes good old basic jeans. There are many jeans that are at a good $40 price point at WorkingGear. A pair of Carhartt jeans is shown at left.

While there is still Wrangler Western Wear made in the good old USA, Wrangler does have plants around the world. If you are very spedicic in wanting American made items, of course you are still supporting an American company, but check individual labels.

There is a good selection of both maker at Silberman's Army and Navy. If you are wanting to buy items specifically made in America, research each brand before buying. Also, I am sure the nice folks in their customer service department would be more than happy to answer your questions!
