American Made Denim: The Ultimate Source List

American Made Denim for men, women, and kids. Our ultimate source list for jeans made in the USA.

American made denim can be difficult to find, so we’ve put together a source list for you to find jeans made in the USA. Depending on what type of jeans you’d like, we’ve listed a variety of options.

My New Favorite American Made Denim Brand

I cannot tell you enough how much I am loving Level 99 jeans. It has always been difficult for me to find well fitting jeans, let alone ones that do not need to be altered. I was lucky enough to get to try six pair of these jeans, and five of them fit perfectly! The Jane style is my favorite because they are high waisted and slimming throughout. Shop directly from their website, as many styles are on sale, and priced well.

American Made Denim From Start to Finish 

Made in USA Bullet Blues Jeans: These jeans are manufactured entirely in the USA. From cotton yarns to dying and finishing to production, all of their manufacturing is done domestically. The company was named to honor the bravery of the American Soldiers fighting at Normandy in World War II. We think you’ll enjoy reading about Bullet Blues, how it started, and their commitment to American made.

Dearborn Denim is dedicated to making denim that’s affordable, that fits you well and that is made from start to finish from USA made components. There is no middle man, so prices for American made denim start at $49! The company offers men’s styles in three fits and women’s styles in two fits. You can select from light, medium, and dark wash colors. The stretch denim is loomed at the most technologically advanced denim mill in America and is made with the best long staple West Texas cotton, making these jeans wildly comfortable, without stretching out.

Each order is hemmed to length before shipping. Everything made in house at the company’s Chicago, Illinois workshop.

Under $100 Denim Made in the USA

Karen Kane offers great fitting denim that hits all the right places. There are so many styles from which to choose too. From twill jeans to capri, boot cut, skinny and denim leggings, you’re sure to find a pair you’ll love.

Lucy Marie Denim brand is founded on the principles of classic styles, quality denim and a flawless fit. They’ve really nailed the fit too. I love that the Skinny jeans are mid-rise, so you get great rear coverage, in addition to the “Lucy Lift”. The fabric is a cotton polyester blend with spandex so it hugs and lays well, while offering a snug, yet flattering fit. Lucy Marie denim is made in Los Angeles, California.

Men’s Jeans In Any Fit

Todd Shelton offers three styles in six washes. These jeans are durable and made to last. The denim is great quality. In the case of Todd Shelton, you get what you pay for. My favorite are the Basic Pro Selvage in the Unsanded Dark wash.

Selvage American Made Denim Under $80

Kent Denim offers mens jeans made from American sewn fabric for under $80. The brand is pre selling its production in order to offer huge savings. Since they aren’t holding huge inventory they can offer raw denim style at prices starting at $50. The jeans are made in Los Angeles and the fabric is sewn at North Carolina‘s Cone Mills factory.

  5. Robin Wilson says:

    I’ve heard of a Karen Kane and Oak73 before but Bullet Jeans look just like what the doctor ordered for me!

  6. Any plus size made in America jeans?

  7. Thanks for these sources. They look like good quality jeans.

  8. Check out Hartford Denim Co (made in Hartford, CT) – one of Close Buy Catalog’s new vendors this year:

  9. Eric Cumming says: Great Jeans and other clothing, all 100% made in the USA.

  10. Brave Star Selvage have been American Made in Los Angeles since 2005. We are the original American selvage brand. Mens selvage denim start @ $72 which is the lowest priced American made selvage jean in the market. Thanks!

  11. It’s great that Nordstrom carries so many Made in the USA options

  12. Thanks for finding Selvage American Made Denim. They are very reasonably priced!

  13. This is a great resource for denim made in America! Thank you for sharing, USA Love List.

  14. All of these look like wonderful American Made Jeans. I do love the style of Karen Kane jeans.

  15. I will need jeans for this upcoming season – I’d love to choose them from one of these companies – because they are made in USA and because they are so nice!

  16. Marisela C. says:

    I love a company like Charity Denim, product made in the USA and that donates some of their profit to a greater cause like the Magic Johnson Foundation.

  17. What about LEVIs? The original American-made jeans. They have plus sizes too! Styles include skinny, straight, bootcut ,etc. They even have some jeans that are made with less water.

    • Technically Levi’s still has a few very high-priced jeans that are still made in the USA, but the vast majority, the ones that are sold in stores all over the world are all made outside of the USA.

  18. There very pretty, but they’re tights, not jeans. That means they’re pretty on young women and girls who have tiny figures and who apparently have nothing to do but sit around — no one could walk in those ridiculous heels. Can’t you find any American-made jeans for grown women who have active lives? There’s no way you could ride a horse in one of those outfits, to say nothing of gardening or serious hiking or any of the things real people do.

    Depressing. I’d like to buy American but there doesn’t seem to be enough choice to make that possible.
