... truly an
American Made Hero
Joseph Abboud is the only remaining American Designer with a significant US manufacturing operation whose heritage is genuinely Made In America.
"Menswear is so exciting. Young guys have a hunger for style and information is everywhere. The biggest challenge is how do we connect with the way they're
thinking? We need to talk to them on their level, not the way we'd talk to them 20 years ago. We have a social media team that drags me along and I'm
fascinated by it. We're reaching consumers in a different way today."
As for the future of retail, Abboud predicts that the vertical model will be even more important since it allows retailers to tell their story the way they
want to. "We employ 800 people at the New Bedford, Mass. factory. We make 330,000 suits a year and can pass on a 30
to 40 percent savings to our customer. We can sell a $795 suit that's made in America. And it�s not just a suit that�s made in America; it's made well in
America." The New Bedford factory can now manufacture Joseph Abboud made-to-measure suiting in 5 days.
We Bostonians welcome Mr. Abboud back to his Boston roots. Paul Revere is especially pleased ...

"Not only the wealth, but the independence and security of a country, appear
to be materially connected with the prosperity of manufacturers. Every nation ... ought to endeavor to possess within
itself all the essentials of a national supply. They comprise the means of subsistence, habitation, clothing and
defense ... The expediency of encouraging manufactures in the United States, which was not long since deemed very
questionable, appears at this time to be pretty generally admitted."

Patriotism, Jobs Primary Motivations for 'Buying American'
Six in 10 say they would pay more to buy U.S. made products!
PRINCETON, NJ -- Forty-five percent of Americans say they recently made a special effort to buy products made in the United States. When asked why,
these shoppers mainly cited patriotic or altruistic goals related to the national economy, including creating and keeping jobs in the U.S., rather than
product-specific considerations such as quality, safety, or cost.
