NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Denim designer Maurice Malone[1] of Williamsburg Garment Company[2] (WGC), an American denim brand manufacturing in the U.S., believes the U.S. garment manufacturing industry is poised for growth driven by small to mid-sized brands.

"The goal of corporations is to maximize profits for investors.  Contrast this against the Chinese philosophy of keeping people working by choosing larger volumes for smaller margins while sacrificing higher profit per piece."
