Sign Of The Times

Carlos Tejada, VF Corporation's VP of manufacturing for the Americas, spoke to Crescent Rotary Club yesterday. Most of his talk centered on the apparel industry's move to offshore production.

An interesting tidbit he revealed was that VF made its last pair of blue jeans in the US last Friday, October 14. That made me a bit sad as a lifelong resident of Greensboro, who was built in part on the denim industry.
