Made in Detroit
Made in Detroit was purchased by Kid Rock in 2005, but has been a staple in the Detroit landscape since 1991. There is a list of local retailers authorized to carry the product all over southeast Michigan. You can also purchase online. Recently, there was some controversy about whether or not the clothing was actually made in Detroit. Make sure you read Kid Rock’s pointed response. The company has an excellent selection of baseball caps in several colors with the Made in Detroit logo. Revenue goes towards employing people, scholarships and other charitable endeavors which help support many local Detroiters.
