No China Diet: Clothes (Part 1)

If you're playing along at home with the No China Diet, I've begun exploring the origin of clothes. Most of which appear to be made in China.

I've found that Sierra Trading Post, sort of a REI-flavored warehouse, lists the origin of each garment. Most that I've looked up are made in China, including J-41 shoes, which were my current shoe interest. Bummer that.

If you have places that you buy clothes not made in China, I'd love to hear about it. I'm also working on a short piece on used clothes, which I think may get me off the hook by not contributing a new dollar to China.
