Manufacturing in America has been a hot topic in the last year as the Trump Administration works to implement its America First ethos, and some city’s in the country are taking in more of this Made in America product.
All American Clothing Company, based in Arcanum, Ohio, has created a “Top 12 Most All American Towns and Cities” list reflecting the most popular destinations of its customers. The company, which produces U.S.-made jeans, shirts and outerwear, and says its mission is to support U.S. families and jobs by producing high-quality clothing in the USA. To find out which areas are buying most of what it makes, the company looked at data on where it shipped the most products in 2017, then selected the top three locations in four different population categories that ranged from small towns with roughly 1,000 residents to large cities with populations of as much as 500,000.
The 12 Most All American Towns and Cities, according to the company’s data, include Dayton and Long Bottom, Ohio; Falls Church, Virginia; Langhorne and Levittown, Pennsylvania, Morro Bay, California; Patchogue, New York; Sarasota and St. Petersburg, Florida; St. Louis; Tinley Park, Illinois, and Woronoco, Maine.
“Buying our clothing energizes and revitalizes jobs all across our great country, from the small family businesses that make some of our apparel and accessories to the companies that make our boxes, host our website and help with the marketing,” said BJ Nickol, co-founder and president of All American Clothing. “We created this list to honor and thank those that bought our products and supported U.S. production.”
