      I find myself looking more and more for products that do not carry that “Made in China” label.
      Currently I am looking for a quality wool shirt that is made in the USA or Canada. Any recommendations?

      Thanks

      Thanks for the input so far.
      I am looking for something lighter weight than the GFA. More like the Pendelton (which is now made in Mexico in believe)

      Check E-bay and resale stores, you can :sometimes find Pendelton, Woolrich shirts etc! If it is the older product most of that was made in the US before NAFTA and the exodus to China! I am with you on the not “made in CHINA” thing but the sad reality is we have very few if any Woolen Mills in this country anymore!:cry: Good luck on your search!

      I like the military type pull over wool for hunting. They are extremely warm and can be bought from sportsmansguide for 20.00. They are slightly used military surplus but are as good as new and can not be beaten for the thickness of the wool. I have a British Commando sweater and an one from Israel. Don’t ask me where the wool comes from though as these are genuine military issue, I suppose it depends on each countries supplier.

      Just checked my shirts. My oldest LL Bean is made in USA. One I bought this year made in Vietnam. A Jac-shirt I got last year as a gift, made in Turkey. A Woolrich Jac-shirt I got also as a gift made in Thailand. The one from Turkey was sloppily made and I doubt it will last without some work.
      The quality of the other garments is very good but it is sad that “American Made” seems to be a thing of the past. I hope and pray that we can re-invent our industrial selves somehow and remain competetive in the world market.

      Hey Red-why don’t you try your local “Salvation Army” store? You will be surprised what you can find and the deals you can get!! I’ve got some of my wool sweaters/shirts for 4,5, or $6 a piece!
      Check it out and good luck!

      Yup. I’ve found a few nice Pendletons at thrift stores. I think the most I ever paid for one was $4.99. The nice thing is that at that price, I don’t worry about doing anything with them.

      I like Johnson Woolen Mills.

      I have a couple of the shirt-jacs and a couple pairs of pants. I’ve used them for, gosh, probably 15 years or so now.

      I also have a vest and a pair of pants that are Codet that I’ve had good luck with. Pretty sure they are made in Canada but I’d have to check before I could swear to it.
