Didn't HUF always claim American made was the reason their stuff was a little more expensive? A direct quote from the HUF site...

"HUF looks to classic American craftsmanship, timeless vintage design, and an appreciation for fine-and-functional modern detail to produce quality goods that incorporate the past and present to create the future."

I love HUF and have a lot of his clothes but the quality is suspect at best.  Shirts are never the same material or same fit and for the price you think there should be some consistency.

so true dude.  i got a mystery pack (it was shit, but thats what you get ie mystery) and said my size was XL. all 3 tee's were XL but a different fit. and once i washed them they boated out like a dress.

i am angry at my calve muscles.

I thought we were talking about how the HUF logo is not in the middle and too much to the left but I guess the 'Made In China' explains that. Haha.

I know the weed socks come from Korea, HUF has a partner who handles the money side of things and could care less about american made anything. Also their warehouse holds dudes from 10am to 10pm some days with few breaks and any dispute to that will lead to them being fired because they are paid under the table, and could care less about anyone but the dollahz. I've heard it happen to a couple dudes that worked there

No shit Sherlock but when your name is on a brand and you happen to be adored by pre and post pubescent dudes then one would expect some level of quality.   But then again he is just a dude who rode a skateboard.

All of brand loyalty aside the vast majority of skate softgoods are manufactured just like any other company: at the hands of mistreated workers abroad.  Its very difficult to find affordable union-made domestic clothes which is why used goods are usually your best option if you care about ethical consumption. 

On that note what are the best most ethical companies to support in skateboarding?

There should be more brands like Domestics. But considering they have the best brand name I think they've got that market pretty much cornered.

I had the same thought checking out the tag on a HUF shirt I have. I'm surprised they haven't seemed to notice or be bothered by it yet.

This is what I hate about SLAP ; I have no idea who you are, you have no credibility in my eyes, yet, I believe you and now I'm bummed on HUF...
