The US Carhartts are $7 more than the Hecho en Mexico ones. That's about a 30% increase in cost. Extrapolate that over several thousand dollars. Even the (extremely) high end stuff I work on is not made in the US, much of it in Western Europe though.. well.. formerly Eastern European Countries, but still.. I imagine soon they'll be too expensive to do such work too.
