Preppy style is the quintessential American dress code. Clothing from iconic brands like Ralph Lauren, Lilly Pulitzer, and Tommy Hilfiger define American style. It’s just too bad that their clothing isn’t made here in the USA. Whether you’re looking for men’s, or women’s clothing, there are lots of options for preppy, all American clothing that’s made in the USA. Here are our top picks. 

Old Bull Lee: American Made Preppy Men’s Fashion

Quality, American made men’s clothing made in the USA can be hard to come by these days. Old Bull Lee is committed to making all its products in the states. The attention to detail, quality construction, and fabric is what makes Old Bull Lee’s men’s shorts, dress shirts, and board shorts so special, and something that we love! The mens’ shorts come with deep front pockets, antique brass YKK zippers hidden behind the plaquette, and are made with durable duck cotton fabric. The button down shirts are fabricated with mother of pearl buttons and unprocessed cotton,

The dress shirts are made in Garland, North Carolina and the other products are all made in southern California.

  3. Caroline says:

    In love with Paxton 1345 boxers…so comfy and cute!

  6. Olly Oxen makes all of their bow ties, koozies, State Pride hats, and skirts stateside and we will be making all of our headwear stateside in the next couple months!

  7. Goodnighties sleepwear for men and women totally made in the USA Love Love Love our happy customers in 50 states and 29 countries. Thanks for supporting USA made products. Loved finding these other companies here

  8. Paxton 1345 has reinvented boxers for both men and women alike! If you haven’t tried a pair yet you are seriously missing out

  9. md kennedy says:

    I FINALLY visited Just Madras – what a find! I’ve placed one of the Madras plaid Sashes in my cart and will add something else (probably a dress) before I order. Thanks for the great lead!

  10. I didn’t realize Brooks Brothers clothes were made in the US. I just assumed that they were made overseas like most of the other well known clothing brands. I wish more of the popular brands of shoes and clothing were made here.

  11. Catherine says:

    Some of the big boys should take note and have their items made in the USA

  12. Tamra Phelps says:

    Wow. I was a teenager back in the early 80s when the preppy look was huge. This brings back some memories!

  13. The J.W. Hulme Co. bag is just my style!

  14. The only one I’ve heard of here is Brooks Brothers, and I so adore the store, I’d love one of everything. I had them make some custom shirts for me, too.

  15. Tamra Phelps says:

    Every style eventually comes back around, lol. The preppy look was huge when I was a teenager in the early 80s.

  16. Elizabeth says:

    I’d add Homegrown Cotton polo shirts, which are made in the Carolinas:

    & Collared Greens, men’s clothing made all over the US:

  17. It’s good to know that Brooks Brothers suits and Allen Edmonds shoes are still made here in the U.S. Most of the other brands listed in the article I wasn’t familiar with.

    I wish more made in America clothes were available in mainstream stores, rather than having to hunt for American made brands online at individual websites and having to order them online.
