A brief rant from a normally patient and happy Shop Sister: Is it really so much to ask for somebody to sell a pair of nice looking American made jeans? Wow, I mean... Levis, Lucky Brand, llBeans, Lands End.... on and on. I used to buy Lucky Brand because they were made in America. Bought a couple pairs the other day... by the end of the day I had a red rash... husband said, "look at the label, maybe they don't make them in the USA anymore". Sure enough... made in China. Then I washed them, and those wrinkles they show where your leg bends... turned into puffs. Yes, puffs... a half an inch high. Really? Oh so expensive jeans just got pitched. I just don't get it. So I've been searching online for made in America women's jeans. Well, first of all, if they aren't $300, they're still styled either for a teenager, or for the woman that belts her jeans just under her breasts... oiy. I thought... of course... llBeans... made in Maine right? Not so, not so. I found a site (Diamond Gusset ) that bragged about their made in America jeans... Tennessee made... well, yes, but when I tried to buy my size, I got a message box that said: "Your chosen quantity is not available for ordering. Please come back and order later." So either they sell out quickly... or they were just taunting me! What's a girl raised on jeans... supposed to do???? OK done ranting. Don't worry, be happy!
