When you buy products that are “Made in the USA” you are helping to support the economy and helping to keep the United States as a premier manufacturing country. 

When we buy American, we help to keep local businesses strong and support domestic job growth at the same time. The manufacturing industry is driving innovation. Manufacturers in the U.S. contribute more than three-quarters of all private-sector R&D in the nation. 

President Trump visited the headquarters of Snap-On Tools in Kenosha, Wisc., to sign his “Buy American, Hire American” order on April 18, 2017. The fact is, American manufacturing has pulled us out of virtually every major economic downturn that our country has faced.  In the 1960’s only 10% of the products Americans purchased were manufactured overseas. Today, that percentage is well beyond half. That needs to change! And we, the American consumer, are the change.

Today there are more than 100 companies who are making 100% of everything right here in the USA. Are you proud to be an American? If so, pull up your bootstraps, stand for the flag, kneel for the cross, and get patriotic! It’s time to support American small businesses and our friends and neighbors who grow them and rely on them. Let’s keep American money cycling through the U.S. economy.

Most of the following featured products contain parts and materials that are 100% Made in the USA! Others contain a small percentage of parts from abroad but all are 100% assembled in the USA by American workers. Our brothers and sisters! All are companies headquartered in America and committed to manufacturing and assembling their products here in America, with American labor, while growing the American economy.

We call on the tough guys of the nation to take the lead and blaze the way! Here’s our Top 11 Tough-Guy Brands that are 100% Made in the USA (and yes, these go to eleven).

Texas Jeans [website]

Our Company strongly believes in the power and quality of American manufacturing. Denim jeans are synonymous with American culture, especially the “American Old West”.

Our registered brand Texas Jeans embodies everything you would come to expect from an American made jean. We have not sold out our country or the American worker to make a dollar. Nearly all of the jean brands you see today have abandoned the U.S.A. for cheap offshore labor. This practice has cost tens of thousands of American workers and vendors their jobs. We use ONLY U.S.A. made materials in our product. This means you can be 100% confident in your purchase. From our denim, thread, buttons, rivets, leather, you name it! It is all Made in the U.S.A.

The company's rich history began in 1889 when four brothers - William Russell (W.R.), Jean, John, and Andrew Case (a.k.a. 'The Case Brothers') began fashioning knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. W.R.'s son, John Russell (Russ) Case, a former salesman for the Case Brothers brand, launched W.R. Case & Sons around the turn of the 20th century. Russ's father acted as his son's consultant, helping to stabilize the company's early finances while building a reputation as a dependable supplier of high-quality cutlery.
