A New York based designer is launching a luxury label that is 100 percent made in the U.S.
For decades, American garment industry has been losing out to cheaper, mass-produced stuff from overseas. All the major fashion houses partially on foreign textiles or labor to clothe the world's elite. The count also includes famous brands like Polo Ralph Lauren.
29-year-old, Keith Jack Edward Lissner is working hard to launch a full line of entirely American-made luxury apparel from his new company Lissner Haberdashery.
'Everywhere in the line it is American. The cotton, the zippers, the buttons, even the linings. There is a bit of alpaca in the wool, but it is milled here in the U.S.,' he said.
