Made in America
Todd Shelton exclusively manufactures all of its products in the brand's East Rutherford, NJ factory.
Founder, Todd Shelton, believes design without manufacturing is simply marketing, and companies that commit to manufacturing the product they design display a higher ambition for their customer, product, and company.
Owning and operating a US factory allows the design and production teams to work side by side. Unlike typical factory piece work, Todd Shelton seamstresses are responsible for crafting each garment start-to-finish. They complete every operation themselves, there’s dignity and respect in the work. It's manufacturing that benefits both customer and seamstress.
Sustainability and Social Responsibility
Todd Shelton quietly practices a sincere, sustainable and socially responsible business model:
- Todd Shelton seamstresses are employed directly by the brand in its New Jersey headquarters. Direct employment is the only method that guarantees the clothing is being manufactured in a work environment that meets the brand’s standards for worker pay, safety, and respect.
- The wholesale clothing industry, unregulated, over-produces garments and over-uses natural resources at epidemic levels. Todd Shelton's lean manufacturing, 'no-inventory' business model reacts quickly to customer demand and eliminates waste associated with over-production.
- The brand avoids the unnecessary use of animal products. No leather patches on jeans, and all shirt buttons are made with synthetic material, not animal bone.
- Todd Shelton purchases fabrics only from textile mills in countries with similar labor and environmental standards as the USA. Todd Shelton fabrics originate from USA, Portugal, Japan, Germany, Italy, and England. Todd Shelton will not purchase fabrics from countries with irresponsible environmental or human rights laws.
