City Threads: Hoodies Made in the USA

Here at The Boy’s Store we love brands that are earth conscious. One of the ways to be earth conscious besides using organic materials is to be made in the USA. By being made in the USA you don’t need to travel, ship, or make things in more than one place. This causes less pollution in the world. It also guarantees more jobs in the USA. One of the brands that loves to offer made in the USA products is City Threads. City Threads makes an effort to make USA based products available for kids, they also make an effort to bring stylish and comfortable products to kids. This week we want to highlight the incredibly cool hoodies that achieve both of these goals, they are mad in the USA, and they are incredibly stylish and comfortable.
