J. Crew and Gap just announced a partnership to start manufacturing and selling a line of Made In The USA clothing.

It’s called “No Sweat” and it features bedazzled tank tops and puffy paint sweatshirts. They’re hoping to reintroduce a line of Hypercolor temperature-sensitive materials for the fall.

All the items feature a prominent American Flag incorporated in the design.

Profits from the high-fashion apparel will be donated to a charity that helps bring socially conscious buying issues to the fore in pop culture (JingoShop.com), which was founded by Starbucks. The coffee company, coincidentally, will now be donating excess profits from its new line of American-grown organic coffee (Texas Crude) to the organization, as well as discontinuing the importation of any non-Fair-Trade coffees and issuing back payments to any farmers whose feelings were hurt by previous interactions with the corporation.

Also, China said it was gonna stop making cheap stuff because it wants to be known for luxury goods.
