Due to its success the All American Clothing Co. has moved from a 5,000 square foot facility to a 55,000 square foot facility, doubled the amount of its inventory, and has created many new jobs at their headquarters.

About All American Clothing Co.

Lawson Nickol founded the USA Made clothing company in 2002 with a goal to make a difference. His dream was to support USA families and jobs by producing high-quality clothing in the USA at an affordable price. He founded the company with the help of his son BJ and wife Mary Ann Nickol. Together, the Nickol family started their company in the USA to provide jobs and a tax base that ultimately supports communities across the United States.

The All American Clothing Co. has overcome many obstacles to chase the American Dream. The All American Clothing Co. has survived a clothing industry that has lost -84% of its labor force since 1995 as according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The trend of outsourcing has made it tough on the company to compete with companies like them. The recession has kept consumers tight to their wallets and the American economy has been weak. These factors had the odds stacked against the success of the All American Clothing Co. But, with the help of many American Made supporters the has company pushed on.

Today, the Nickol family’s dream holds true. The All American Clothing Co. continues to grow and succeed by selling quality USA made clothing at an affordable price. The company and its supporters continue to create jobs and make a difference. Visit http://www.allamericanclothing.com or follow them on Facebook to help make a difference.

Yes You Can Buy American Made Clothes!

bKFOXy Big Rick Born In The U.S.A. Stuart of KFOX.

Want to know about my new good looking and good fitting jeans?

Ok just for fun I’m thinking you said “yes.”

Big RickWe send the message to employees and patrons that as USA Made entrepreneurs “it is not all about money”. It is about standards of living, education, global security, employee’s jobs, well being of families and the future of new generations. It is also about helping our neighbor and the truly needy.”

That’s from the place I bought my jeans.

I bought them online from All American Clothing Company. Here is their Facebook page. I like buying American produced products. It’s not always easy but with the internet and some searches you can find more American made items than you probably realized.

These jeans are great and fairly priced. I was intrigued by this tag saying I could trace the jeans back to the cotton farmer. Hmm that’s cool!I did it and you can too. I just entered the number 941213680000 at this link http://www.allamericanclothing.com/traceability.html

And here’s what I found out.

The cotton in my jeans is from Robert’s Farm in Sumner County Kansas.

They had the cut and sew job done at Elk Brand Manufacturing facilities in Kentucky.

Then ended up being sent to me after I bought them online from All American Clothing Company in Ohio.

How great is that?!

Here’s a video about their Traceability and the cotton farmers

I’m really happy with the jeans. The Shop American Made idea isn’t new, and there’s more of it out there than you might realize.

Big Rick says “Check It Out!”

More on the cotton farm:

Robert’s farm has been in his family since 1919 when his grandfather moved to Sumner County in search of better farmland. During his career, Robert has watched farming transition from a “way of life” to a state-of-the-art business that employs the latest technology. Today, he produces his cotton in a no-tillage system, solely using rainfall and with minimal use of pesticides.

American Cotton Growers – or ACG – and its farmer-owners are focused on developing high quality denim fabrics for our customers with minimal impact on the environment. We produce an average of 37 million yards of denim annually, enough to make 26 million pairs of jeans, every yard of which is grown, spun, dyed, and woven from the cotton our members produce. This denim process is a true, homespun phenomenon – American cotton literally created from field to fabric.

USA Made. Just Get It.

Should I say more?

I should talk about how buying USA Made benefits the economy. I should tell you that if every American spent just $50 on USA Made items a year, it would generate over $15.7 billion. This number alone would create thousands of American jobs. Also, I should probably tell you that one of those jobs created or saved could be your own.

But I won`t. We should all ‘just get it’ by now.

Just Get It

USA Made. Just Get It.

Dear Santa,

All I want is the creation of more jobs and a better economy. I have been well behaved for much of this year. This was tough during the election, but I was good for the most part. I have kept my promise on manufacturing more items than I ever have before. To be exact, I exported more than $7.1 trillion worth of goods this year which is more than China or any other country on earth. I made more items this past year than any other year throughout my life. This includes my early years of the Industrial Revolution.

Santa, I would like to let the world know that I am back.  I am making progress every day through the efforts of my citizens and their innovations. Will you please let Americans know how important it is to buy items made by me this holiday season?

Last year between Thanksgiving and Christmas Americans spent over $584 billion. Think of how many jobs that could`ve been created if all that had been spent on items made here.

As seen in FOLK Magazine.

Please let my citizens know that I need their support this Christmas. I cannot create more jobs and support a better economy without them. Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Uncle Sam

P.S. Enjoy the cookies. I made them all by myself.

This Is Our Economy

By: Logan Beam

Our Economy has been falling. What happens when we fall?

America is facing adversity. The American unemployment rate is at 7.8% and millions of citizens are out of work. 46.7 million Americans are on food stamps and 53% of recent college graduates cannot find work. Also, a national debt over $16.1 trillion continues to pile up. Our economy is falling.

Many feel the U.S. economic recovery should be left in the hands of our friends in Washington. Our leaders have welcomed this idea as many have proposed legislation and plans for economic growth. All of this takes time. After this, even more time is spent as partisan sides are exchanging opposing ideas. Thus, nothing gets accomplished quickly.

If America is to rise out of its economic hardship, U.S. citizens must lend a hand to pick it up. Americans can make a difference and help our economy far more quickly than any of our friends in Washington. The difference our citizens can make is simple. It starts in buying USA Made items.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau there are 314,633,365 American citizens (As of Oct 23, 2012). Imagine if every American citizen spent just $100 a year on USA Made items. This would create over $31.4 billion in revenue. That number alone creates thousands of American jobs. These are jobs that will help citizens get off food stamps, college graduates will find work, and these jobs will improve our national debt. Also, these jobs could be created while our leaders in Washington are still proposing plans and legislation.

With the United States manufacturing more items today than any other time in its history, finding USA Made items shouldn’t be a hassle for consumers. In fact, America makes more than $7.1 trillion worth of goods each year which is more than China, Germany, Japan, or any other country on earth. 70% of the American economy is driven by consumer spending which means Americans are clearly spending. Think of the many jobs that can be created if that 70% of consumer spending was spent on USA Made items only.

So what do we do when America faces adversity?

We do what Americans always have done. We take a stand. We manufacture American Made items. We buy American made items such as notepads, pens, and paper. This country even manufactures American Made toilets! Please invest in our future. We will overcome the obstacle of the economy in time. We can do it together. This is our economy.

We get back up. That`s what All Americans do.

We hope you all have this reaction when someone says its Made in China, or that the item they just bought is not Made in USA.
