National Geographic doesn’t just write about far away places. They write about the stuff from far away places that we bring home.

Like clothes.

…More than 90 percent of clothing sold in the United States is made offshore… The rush to China began in the 1970s, remembers Bud Konheim, CEO of Nicole Miller, a women’s wear designer. “We could do something for half price, so we did. Everyone went, like lemmings… We’re beginning to hear that some production is coming back, but it’s more feeling than fact.”

“More Feeling Than Fact.” That’s the 21st-century version of, “Don’t Tread On Me.”
