I agree that size is all over the place with Levi's these days. You never know what kind of fit you'll get from order to order.

Make them in America, yes, but due to corporate taxes and cost of labor and cost of doing business in America the price to make them would be at least three times as much, and who is going to pay that much, and be truthful with your answer if you say yourself. Are you really going to pay over a hundred bucks for a pair of Levi's??? The high cost of labor has driven the textile business out of America, and the low cost of labor in other Countries has taken the textile business out of America, and the fact that we, as American's, do not and won't pay the high cost when we can get it cheaper someplace else. Just ask the Wal-Mart shopper, or those of us looking for deals on Amazon, like myself. Made in America, yes, great, but who in America will pay the price, and soon that hamburger your eating will cost twice as much if and when they double the minimum wage for those flipping the burgers. Don't fool yourself. We price ourselves right out of the market.

Sorry, Bill. Blame over-regulation all you want, and it's still bullpoop. The truth is that for every penny these idiots save by shipping jobs overseas, they need to put three pennies back in for quality control - but they never do.

The products are shoddy, the workmanship is embarrassing, and the price never, ever goes down from all the "savings" of lower taxes and manufacturing in an unregulated environment using cheap labor.

Don't fall for the "Making it in America costs too much!" crap. The only reason these idiots send the jobs overseas is to make a few more points with their stockholders. And the only reason some American consumers keep buying this crap is because too many of us are too much like sheep to try to see through the "it costs too much" propaganda - and a generation from now, no one will remember that stuff used to be well-made and worth the price.

Hadn't you noticed Apple bringing manufacturing back to the U.S.? Apple got the message that controlling manufacturing quality overseas was costing more than they could hope to save by continuing to manufacture products offshore.

I have been making aircraft parts for the Military for over 40 years. I deal with items made in America, China, Italy and Germany. Everything I see from all the Countries has the same quality, but I can guaranty you the parts made in America cost way more and it's because of over regulation and taxes and cost of labor.
The truth is, I have no problem with todays Levis and where there made.
Making them in America does cost to much. (for me)
PS>Apple technology is no comparison to stitching together material to make Levis,
and there is a good chance those that drive cars with an overseas brand on it do not care either.
Right, or do we still think I am blowing smoke?

The only product Apple has brought back to the US is the Power Mac. Everything else is still made overseas by contract manufacturers (OEMs) - mostly in China but there were rumors of a plant to be built in Brazil. Apple remains fanatic about the quality so my iMac, iPad and iPhone are all top notch.
