Smith's Workwear?

Has anyone heard of this company before?

http://smithsamerican.com/history.php Admittedly, their website sucks.

Apparently they've been around for a long time and I've never heard of them before a few weeks ago. I was doing a fire alarm inspection at a mall and walked past the Modell's Sporting Goods store and saw one of those denim work coats in the window. They were having a sale, the coat was $25. I went in, tried it on and it felt good. I put it back and said, 'Maybe tomorrow I'll buy it.' I hadn't given it much thought but the next day the price dropped another $5 so I bought it. I also noticed they had fleece lined and flanel (sp?) lined pants. I've been wearing the jacket now for a few weeks and I like it. It's heavy, durable and warm. The denim doesn't leave you much room to move but it's a good work coat.

This week, I'm doing another inspection at a mall. Only it's outside. And I figured maybe I'd pick up a pair of the fleece lined pants.

The thing I like about Smith's is the price. It's not terribly expensive. I've always like Carhart jackets but they are too damn expensive.

I've never heard of them.
I am curious though, where was your jacket made?

Website didn't say exactly- seemed evasive....

"Based in New York City, Smith's has taken off across the country as well as globally, reaching Europe, China, and Japan. And with a large celebrity fan base that includes Ashton Kutcher, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba, and Josh Duhamel, just to name a few, you can be sure that this funky, vintage-looking line is reaching for the stars."

So, here I thought they were made in America. What with a name like Smith's. Turns out. Communist China. Dammit. I did say their site sucked and you are right. It's evasive and doesn't give you a lot of info. Looks like I won't be buying their clothes anymore.
