This real American clothing company has been making clothes in the USA since 2002.
Caletha Crawford is a well-known and respected childrenswear consultant based in New York. Once the editor of the venerable children’s trade publication Earnshaw’s, Caletha is also part of the the Children’s Apparel Consulting Group, a full-service, one-stop network of industry veterans that works with children’s clothing companies on branding, design, merchandising, production, sales, credit checks, order processing, back office, customers service, marketing, collections, PR and social media –good to know, in case you’re embarking on your passion for children’s fashion with a new product or business!
Made in the USA. Caletha recently featured Los Angeles, CA-based City Threads in her e-newsletter –an apparel company that started out manufacturing cool clothes for boys emblazoned with city names, and now caters to both boys and girls sizes 0 to 14 with a full complement of clothing for day and night, including pajamas, underwear, layering pieces and fashionable sportswear that features innovative graphics designed to excite kids’ imaginations.
“The Spring ’14 line comprises t-shirts, polos, hoodies, shorts, dresses, one-pieces, swim trunks, pajamas and underwear for 24/7 style,” Caletha says. “The brand is devoted to comfort with soft, quality fabrics and an easy fit.”
With our Spring ’14 collection, City Threads has done what we do best by putting our signature trend-right twist on the iconic American style staples kids love to live in. Plus, the fabrics are comfy enough that kids won’t want to take them off.

Outrageously eye-catching graphics spill over fronts for added visual interest on tees, tanks, swim trunks and shorts. Hoodies have 3D details like a shark fin on the back that kids really love. And it’s the line’s swimwear that makes the biggest splash with moms year after year, thanks to its quality and durability –now with screen printing on swim trunks this season.
Popular with celebrity moms and parents everywhere, husband-and-wife team Shayna Samuels and Joe Willis runs this family business that makes its cool apparel in the United States. They also make padded footies, pants and hats, rounding out a collection that becomes a staple in a child’s wardrobe.
