4th of July 2021
4th of July 2021 is right around the corner, and we’re looking forward to it just as much as anyone else. As is the case with any holiday with a historical bent to it, the Fourth offers us an opportunity to reflect on where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going.
Even in our hyper-politicized climate, it’s safe to say that, as a country, we’ve been through a lot since our last Fourth of July. A year ago, we had only been re-opened for less than a month, navigating our way through uncharted waters just like everyone else. This year, we’re happy to report that business is strong and our clients and families are all doing well.
Proudly Made In America
Here at Henry A. Davidsen, we’re proud to tout that we don’t just design products here in America, but make them here in America as well. Back before so many factories left, the United States (Philadelphia in particular) was a manufacturing dynamo. We didn’t just make things here, we made the best things here. American manufacturing was synonymous with quality and ingenuity – not to mention good jobs for workers.
Thankfully, an appreciation for American-made goods took hold about fifteen years ago. We’re proud to be a part of this movement and are enthusiastic to make so many of our products here in the United States. Our full custom suits, trousers and sport coats are made stateside, and our custom shirts are made right here on the East Coast. Both shops are family businesses that have stayed in their respective families for generations, so you know that each Henry A. Davidsen garment you wear was constructed with pride.
Benefits of US-Made Clothing
There are many reasons to invest in American-made clothes if you can. High quality is, of course, one of the main benefits. In addition to this, your purchases support American businesses, which in turn supports American workers and their families. On a holiday like the 4th, it’s poignant to note that there’s a level of patriotism here that goes beyond things like barbecues and parades.
From an environmental perspective, buying American is also a positive. Custom clothing is better for the environment anyway, but buying American is akin to buying local. This is particularly true when you consider the carbon footprint of shipping goods across state lines versus shipping them from overseas.
Happy Fourth of July, everyone. May this year in our shared story be the best one yet.
