Hasn't there started being a trend of lawsuits from the private sector, against companies selling "Made in the USA" that really isn't?
I think you can compete with quality, but you almost have to go completely the opposite direction, and try to appeal to the people who actually WANT something to be expensive... Really expensive. Because that is their barometer for quality, and they have the money to throw away on it. But at that level you really have to back it up.
If I was in the clothing biz, I would almost consider having an article on my site exposing these unfair and illegal practices. Assuming you wouldn't end up having your car blown up or something. :)
