Scott Jones, founder of custom outdoor wear maker Beyond Clothing, is adamant about producing his clothing in the U.S. He makes his line in-house and through home sewers and local factories. "People say, 'What about the cost [of hiring U.S. workers]?' " Jones says. "If you have a new business model and utilize new technologies … and sell direct or work with retailers to keep margins in a more equal place, [you can stay competitive]. There's really no excuse not to stay in America just due to labor costs."
