American-made t-shirts for kids
Our Buy American Mention of the Week!
by Roger Simmermaker
September 25, 2011

Have you often found it difficult locating American-made clothing for your kids? And if you don't have children or grandchildren, maybe you've found it difficult searching for an American-made gift for birthdays for children that they will surely like?

It's true that about 97% of the apparel sold in the United States today is made in other countries. It's also true that most of the apparel that is American-made is geared toward the adult market. That makes it especially tough to buy American-made t-shirts and other apparel for toddlers.

Thankfully, I recently came across a website that I knew I wanted to tell everyone about that makes very attractive t-shirts that most kids will love and will be a big help to patriotic consumers who find themselves in the circumstances above.

That website is, and their shirts are geared towards the toddlers in your life that love cars, trucks, planes, tractors, trains, and just about any vehicle one might name. And all ShirtsThatGo apparel is 100% American cotton, 100% American made, and printed in USA as well.

The company was started by an American Dad (Nick) whose kids loved vehicles, but often found it challenging locating vehicle-themed t-shirts, and even more challenging finding them 'made in USA.'

Nick often noticed his kids would 'light up' every time they heard a fire truck coming around the corner, or the sound of a train roaring into the station, the familiar "ding-ding" of a crossing gate closing when a train approaches, or even a helicopter hovering overhead. So it motivated him to create vehicle-themed t-shirts that captured the sights of these vehicles in action, in reality, and hard at work as much as possible.

ShirtsThatGo t-shirts come in both short-sleeve and long-sleeve, and are priced at $16.99 with free shipping. That may sound like a high price for a kid's t-shirt, but it's actually very competitive when you consider these four factors:

  1. Shipping is always free via the U.S, Postal Service (some sites have you order $100 or more for free shipping).
  2. You get a 5% discount for two shirts, 10% for three, and 15% for four.
  3. Discounting is automatic. No coupon codes to remember.
  4. No driving around town at $4 per gallon of gas looking to buy what you may not find anyway.

And receiving a package from ShirtsThatGo is more than just getting a t-shirt, as they come in full-color shipping boxes that will really wow your kids and add to the excitement of the gift experience.

ShirtsThatGo taps into the imagination of kids and puts it on a shirt they can proudly wear to show their enthusiasm for the vehicles that really move them.

ShirtsThatGo currently has 15 designs, with plans to add more on a regular basis. So whether its fire trucks, trailer trucks, cement rucks, big rigs, tractors, bulldozers, fighter jets, motorcycles, pirate ships, diesel, electric or steam trains, you're sure to find a t-shirt that captures the reality of what really motivates your child.

When you place an order from ShirtsThatGo, you'll be supporting an American-owned small business that keeps each and every detail of their work in the United States.
