Want one of the highest-quality leather jackets in the world? Or a premium sheepskin coat to last you decades? There’s a very good chance the tag says “Made in the USA.”
We’re not just saying coats made in the USA are better because we’re proud, patriotic Americans—although we certainly are! There’s also another reason.
Because labor costs are so much higher in the U.S. than much of the rest of the world, American coat-makers competing on price have long since gone the way of the dinosaur, edged out by foreign competitors with much lower costs. The American coat-makers left standing are the ones competing (and winning!) on quality. The ones where more for workmanship isn’t a detriment but a feature.
These aren’t simple coat-makers so much as highly skilled artisans: master designers and professional stitchers with an obsession for detail, quality and workmanship to rival no other. Most are small family-run operations that have handed down these skills from generation to generation, earning praise and acclaim from customers seeking out nothing but the best.
So yes, coats made in the USA typically cost more. And yes, they’re also typically the most amazing jackets and coats you’ll ever own. The kind that will still look, feel and wear great 10 or even 20 years from now.
We know this first-hand. Madison Avenue Mall has been in the coat business for over 40 years, and we work with master coat-makers around the world over. And while we offer a range of product and stand 100% behind every single coat we sell, our Made in the USA coats are the pride of our collection, the ones our loyal customers still gush about a decade later.ov
