In honor of America’s birthday, and in the spirit of adding conscience to our shopping carts, we’ve scoured the 50 states for Made In America brands we’d actually want to wear. There are twinkly necklaces, those boots you always try on and don’t just splurge on (do it!), Selvedge denim (really!) and way less American Apparel than you’d think — i.e. none. The best part is, by shopping goods designed, sourced and made right here between our country’s sandy shores, you can skip dressing strictly in stars and stripes to show your true colors.
