Who says that all clothing made in American has to be expensive. Having recently been turned onto Pointer Brand, I was shocked to see that my friend Mark ordered two jackets and a pair of painter shorts for less than $100 dollars! The Bristol, Tennessee based company L.C. King Manufacturing Co. has been making classic work wear since 1913. The Pointer website doesn’t have a store locater so the best way to find it is to order from their store online. (A tip, order the pants two sizes up as they run small.) Even work wear Meccas like Dave’s on Sixth Avenue don’t sell this stuff. Pointer is a true diamond in the rough.
The value for money (as the Brits say) for Pointer Brand is extremely good. It is especially good when you consider the prices of the clothing from companies like Carhartt (which I like, don’t get me wrong) and most of those goods are made outside the U.S. More Pointer Brand pictures can be found here.
