The Joseph Abboud Collection
Men's Wearhouse thinks you're going to like the way you look in American-made.
Recently, Men's Wearhouse joined forces with Jos. A Bank and Joseph Abboud brands, making them one of the largest menswear in the United States. Joseph Abboud is their chief creative director. The store is now boasting a made-in-USA line of Joseph Abboud suits (manufactured in New Bedford, Mass. to be exact), available at their 900+ stores nationwide. This means that many American men will likely have easy access to a made-in-America suit in their nearby shopping mall.
The suits, priced at just under $500, come in a variety of colors, fits, and Italian fabrics. My husband, a fan of the slim fit suits and shirts in general, likes the Joseph Abboud Gray Birdseye Slim Fit Suit pictured above. Made of 100% Italian wool, it has a classic notch lapel, side vents, two-button jacket, and comes with flat-front slacks that are lined to the knee. Pretty spiffy. It's also nice that the suits are available in big & tall sizes as well.
I love this ad that they've been airing in my area:
