Global Labels

I've been curious lately about the origins of the products and items I use every day. For example, the clothing I wear. I don't know whether I'll keep track every day, but this morning, I did a quick global inventory of the clothes I'm wearing. And the results were intriguing:

  • Boxers -- made in Cambodia using fabric from China (Fruit of the Loom)
  • T-shirt -- made in Haiti (Hanes)
  • Khakis -- made in Jordan (Gap)
  • Shirt -- made in China (Uniqlo)
  • Jacket -- made in the United States (Hart, Schaffner & Marx)
  • Shoes -- made in China (Vans)

Where are the clothes you wear from? It's an interesting question.
