Kudos to

In a serendipitous trip along the www this morning, I discovered a wonderful website. David Morgan (Bothell, WA) is a retailer of menswear, including hats, clothing, leather products, and luggage. They also carry a great collection of silver and gold jewelry. The company is family owned and operated, since 1962. Their on-line shopping site,, stands out for a number of reasons.

First, they offer nearly 700 items that are made in USA. These items are easily found by entering “made in USA” in the search box, and results are displayed on special USA-made product pages.

Second, David Morgan, which is based in the greater Seattle area, displays regional pride by featuring a number of products from the Pacific Northwest. Brands include C.C. Filson (Seattle, WA), Geier Glove (Centralia, WA), Welch Co. (Portland, OR), and Northwest Coast Indian jewelry. The site also offers American-made products by Phillip Hawk (leather goods), Bills Khakis, Ultimate Hats, Five Brothers (shirts), Bosca leather products, and jewelry by Kevin Kapin.

Third, the site includes background information on the companies whose products are offered, as well as information on the art and lore of native tribes of the region. This added depth makes for a rich shopping experience.

Fourth, the overall design of the site, in terms of aesthetics and functionality, is excellent! Colors and layout are attractive, and side menu options allow shopping by product category or by brand.

Congratulations David Morgan! I encourage all of you to check out the site.
