Kid Rock

By Evann Gastaldo

Kid Rock loves Detroit, and the story of the rocker saving the Made in Detroit clothing line from bankruptcy is certainly a heartwarming one. With just one small problem: The Made in Detroit shirts aren’t actually made in Detroit, Detroit Free Press writer Susan Tompor discovered.

The design originated in the Motor City, but the Clarkston company buys its T-shirts from manufacturers in the Dominican Republic, India, Honduras, and even Ohio. Worse, many of the adult shirts no longer carry a label stating where they were made, Tompor writes. Tommy Dubak, who runs operations for the brand, says that’s simply a design choice made partially because he “hated tags in my shirts.”

He says he does not believe there’s any problem with removing the tags, but one staff attorney at the FTC says that organization could take action if a T-shirt does not follow proper labeling rules. “Sure, many clothes are no longer made in the USA,” writes Tompor. “But sadly, you’d have to wish that a Made in Detroit T-shirt wasn’t one of them.”

Do you see anything wrong with him saying it is made in Detroit when it is actually not?
