Apparel Manufacturing Cost Comparison

Global Apparel Manufacturing Centers

Among the top apparel manufacturing regions in the world are the New York City, Los Angeles, Milan, Seoul, Japan, Switzerland and China. We recently came across this great video on YouTube® that outlines the differences between each of these centers based on Quality, Price, Shipping Times, and Cultural differences. Some of this information surprised even us, so we hope you find the information as useful as we did.

We still think that we can produce a better product in Seattle at a lower cost of goods sold than New York and L.A., but we’re a little bias.
