According to some information I have been made aware of, Carhartt still produces some of it's items "union-made" in the USA, they are not available on the Carhartt website, but can be found through a few stores nationwide which sell them. They can be distinguished by the product code beginning with the letter "U" or with the tag displaying "Made In USA"
A partial list of these retailers follows:
- Dave’s Army-Navy www.DavesNewYork.com
- G&L Clothing www.GandLClothing.com
- Workwear, Inc. www.TheWorkwearStore.com
These items are not sold on Carhartt's site. It would be nice if Carhartt would prominently display on it's site these retailers that sell "Union Made in The USA" items. Please note, it is not my intention to hurt union workers.
I am still pissed that by not letting the public know that there is a choice and by hiding this information, it makes it seem as if there is no desire to purchase "Union-Made in USA" clothing, and further deceptively hides the fact that 100% of the products offered on their website and in most stores are indeed not "Made In The USA".Another site, which has been pointed out by Omaha Steve at Democratic Underground, is having a Made in USA blowout sale this weekend, Union House Apparel
