Our mission is to support USA families and jobs by producing high-quality clothing in the USA at an affordable price.

Tell us about your business.

Lawson Nickol was a national sales manager for a USA Made blue jean company in 2002. When he learned that his employer had started making their jeans in Mexico, he turned in his resignation and started his own American Made blue jean company with his son BJ Nickol - they called it the All American Clothing Co. Since 2002, the company has continued to grow into a small business success story. They have recently acquired a cut & sew factory operation of their own, where American Made jeans will be manufactured for their All American Brand and other companies and designers interested in making clothing in the USA.

What makes your business stand out?

You can trace our All American Jeans back to the farmer who grew the cotton used in your jean! Each jean comes with a 'Certificate of Authenticity' that includes a traceability number. Enter the number on our website and we will tell you exactly which farmers and mill were involved in producing your jean! In all, there are over 11,000 American cotton farmers supported in our traceability system.
