LOS ANGELES — A comeback of denim manufacturing in the City of Angels? It’s complicated. And turns out, just because someone says something to that effect will occur — even if it comes from the lips of a president — doesn't mean change occurs overnight.
President Trump’s push to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement and grow jobs domestically, along with a broader interest in the revival of U.S.-made goods, have converged into a swell of talk. Whether denim manufacturing locally — which has trickled outside of the city's borders over the past few years as companies look to cut costs — returns hinges on a confluence of factors, the least of which is policy and trade talk.
