Made In America…… Not Anymore….

14 Jul

So Ralph Lauren is under a lot of scrutiny for the USA teams uniforms. Mr. Lauren has a contractual agreement to create the uniforms for the USOC until 2020. The outfits of course are full of patriotic pride until you see the label “Made In China“….. The label has created so much controversy amongst Congress and Americans alike. At a time when employment is at an all time low many feel that Ralph Lauren could have had the outfits created here instead of out sourcing to China. That could have easily created a few jobs in the USA. Not to mention the overall pride of being made in the US of A….. Ralph Lauren released a statement that all future USOC uniforms will be made in America. He also stated “Ralph Lauren promises to lead the conversation within our industry and our government to address the issue to increase manufacturing in the United States”…. With so much out sourcing there are very few things created in USA.

I would like to hear your comments on this.. Do you think it is an issue that the uniforms were made in China or is the whole argument trivial? Please weigh in loves!!

There is this big myth that “fashion” does not exist for men… Lie… Men are as relevant in fashion as women are relevant in history.  And just like a woman, a man should have certain foundation items in his closet. My item of choice is definitely the cardigan.  And no I am not talking about the Bill Cosby rendition. I am talking about the more fashionable, chic edition. Trust me men this is one item you need in your closet. It can be dressed down to give the nerdy/skate-boy look or it can be dressed up to give that preppy/gentleman look.  Cardigans don’t require much underneath them ether, usually a basic tee-shirt will do the job. Some of my favorite designer cardigans are Polo/Ralph Lauren (you can personalize your cardigan with your name and symbols), BBC (Billionaire Boys Club) and Banna Republic to name a few. But you can also be fashion forward at a discount and find amazing cardigans at H&M and Zara!  Here are a few of my fav celebrities rocking cardigans the right way… Gentlemen pay attention, because cardigans are a style staple that is here to stay..


Jay-Z said it best…You can pay for School but you can’t buy class! Pharell is full of class in this Classic Cardigan.


Kanye said.. Swagga on a hundred  thousand, trillion… Lance Gross swagger is evident! He is not afraid to take a risk with bright, bold color.

T.I. said he was Living revolutionary… Nothing less than Legendary… Ushers style is revolutionary… He sets trends and is ahead of Fashion!
