military clothing

After the Second World War, people used to wear trench coats that were given by the government as their daily outwear. This means that all women had to put on the trench coats as their outwear too. They tried to make the trench coats as fashionable as possible. During this moment there were a lot of protests everywhere as many people showed their disregard to the war. Those supporting the anti war movement used military outfits such as camouflage, army jackets, cargo pants and others that showed protest for war. This became sort of a trend whereby unlike in the past the military clothing became popular even for normal trend, not only for the armies who engaged in war other military functions. Up to now the military clothing has become a trend and it is not likely that it will go out of style any time soon.

This does not need any introduction because camouflage is the trending military print in the modern days. Despite that it might be perfect for office; it works perfectly for smart casual occasions. You will attain a cool weekend look by wearing a white sneakers, camo print tee, navy blazer and khaki chinos. You can also replace the sneakers with army brown leather lace ups. Camo footwear makes you have an off duty look. You can opt for sneakers or sliders. It is also possible to have another look by pairing the footwear with demure pieces such as black slim fit jeans and a crisp white shirt.

Costumes Made In USA

Mickey is looking for novelty costumes made in USA for a new online company. Just last week I stumbled upon a manufacturer. I had ripped a tag of a bow that I had just purchased because ofcourse it had the “Made in USA” label on it. So I checked it out. Sure enough it’s the worlds largest manufacturer of ribbons, bows, and wrapping paper. One of their for brand names is Paper Magic. What a surprise to find out they also manufacture costumes!

The below list represents large Appliances confirmed as made in the USA. There are other large applicances made in USA. However, only these have been verified as made in USA.

Whirlpool (check model and label)

Summit Appliances (all ranges are made in USA) See products links in our database.


Sharp When I inquired I was told these microwaves were made in USA. Others have said they are only assembled in the USA. In either case, this is the closest product to “Made in USA”

Washer and Dryer
Speed Queen

Also see Viking Range

LED Light Bulbs

I have been completely unsuccessful at finding LED light bulbs made in the USA. If anyone has any information on a manufacturer in the USA. Please help us.
Thank you!

This is the response I received when searching for string LED lights. It comes from Innovative Energy Solutions.

“You are facing a true dilemma. I cannot find light strings made in the USA. The problem lies with the fact that the vast majority of consumers want “Wal-Mart” prices and that requires finding foreign manufactories which don’t have to pay American Union wages. Even items which are handcrafted in USA are usually made of components which come from China, India, Pakistan or other foreign land with cheap labor (the vast majority of items in the Hobby Lobby stores is foreign-made for example). So, if you consider our lighted wreaths, or metal-frame displays, the structures may be US made, but the lights will be from China. It is an impossible situation which I find to be frustrating on a number of levels.

Vitamins For Pets

Halo Pets
Yes, all of our products are made in the US. We do not get any
ingredients from outside the United States (with the exception of our
pea protein which comes from Canada). All of our products are made in a

Greeting Cards

Greeting cards are difficult to search on line. The following list is a result of direct observation. These brands each had products with “Made in USA” marked on them.

In Rythm
Sunrise Greetings
Tender THoughts
Fantus Paper Products, IL
American Greetings

The last two may very well have plants over seas but generally that is to
service their asian customers. Just check the labels. All of these are
clearly marked.

I did not research the manufacturer of these items. I’m giving you this
information strictly from the back side of the items I reviewed.

Audio Equipment – Made In USA

Arthur was perusing our site and suggested that we post Audio Equipment. At this time I have no Audio Equipment listed in the database. This is mostly because I hadn’t had a request to research this particular type of equipment. Generally, that’s how it works, as I research I either post to the blog or I input the information into the database. Believe it or not there are SO many items made in the USA, I can’t get them all posted to the database.

Anyway, Arthur has kindly forwarded his research and with his permission, I’m posting it here. Though I’m sure Arthur was diligent in his research, I haven’t confirmed the exact manufacturing location for each brand. As always, as questions if you are in the serious buying mood!
