I don't think I have any clothing item with a Made in China label. I generally check for that first and reject the item if I see it.

I do have some Made in Hong Kong items. That's kind of a grey area for me.

You generally need to look to Western stores to find more Made in the USA stuff, but even there you need to be careful.

If you streak all the time then you don't have to worry about this.

To qualify as Made in the USA by the FTC, a manufacturer is held to an almost impossibly high standard, unless said manufacturer is also responsible for the manufacture of all raw materials and components in addition to the final product.
