from Fashionista

It's no secret that the U.S. manufacturing industry is far from what it used to be, and that the price of cheap clothing comes at a horrible human cost. But despite efforts to bring manufacturing back to America, foreign imports still dominate the U.S. apparel market. Between February 2013 and February 2014, the U.S. exported $5.8 billion worth of apparel and imported $80 billion, according to the Department of Commerce's Office of Textiles and Apparel.
