Levi’s Just Donated $1 Million To Gun Control — Here’s Who To Buy Clothes From Instead

Levi Strauss is one of America’s largest clothing retailers. It hasn’t done well on 2ndVote’s rankings, but we haven’t focused on them much because other companies have been more egregious.

Well, no longer. Levi’s just donated one million dollars to gun control groups, and is changing company policies to support gun control. Via The Washington Times:

Mr. Bergh said the company is stepping up its gun control activism in three areas: First, by creating the Safer Tomorrow Fund, which will direct more than $1 million in philanthropic grants to boosting gun control groups; Second, by partnering with Everytown for Gun Safety and Michael Bloomberg to form Everytown Business Leaders for Gun Safety; And third, by doubling the company’s usual employee donation match to organizations aligned with the new Safer Tomorrow Fund.

The company will also pay employees for their political activism, for up to five hours a month.

This jump from an internal company ban on firearms to a full-on assault on the Second Amendment means it’s time for 2ndVote shoppers to take a stand. We recommend switching your dollars from Levi’s to clothing companies which focus on customers, not liberal activism. Specifically, Eddie Bauer has a neutral ranking with 2ndVote, as do Carhartt, Anthropologie, and Tommy Hilfiger.

Levi CEO Chip Bergh wrote earlier this week that “history will prove” that his company’s “stand to end gun violence” was “right.” We couldn’t disagree more. Taking guns away from law-abiding citizens denies their human and constitutional rights to self-defense, and empowers criminals to target now-helpless innocents.

    Where can we buy jeans? Does anyone make jeans that don’t support gun control?

        We have a big box store that sells some of them, Blains Farm And Fleet.

        • Elizabeth

          I prefer Wrangler’s.

          • Legoge47

            The store sells Wrangler also.?

          • Elizabeth

            They’re the most comfortable too.

          • Legoge47

            I can also buy them at post exchanges since I am a Veteran. Also you can get Army surplus at Army surplus stores where the stores are available.

        Thanks. I wear Wrangler jeans and buy them at Walmart. I could also get them at Farm and Fleet and several other places in town.

      • Elizabeth

        Good to know. That’s been my only choice for 30 years now.

      I ordered my usual size and they fit perfectly. With that said, Lee jeans always seemed to be different sizes than the rest, so if you buy those, you should probably buy the regular size of your other pants.

      You can buy Carhart @ Sierra Trading Post Or Aramark, just sign up for their coupons and you will get a nice markdown. Sierra has changed a little bit (not as many discount sales) but they do have good pricing on seconds and close-outs

  • Cliff Spectre

    What about Lee and Arizona brands?

    • Cliff Spectre

      2nd vote lists Lee. They’re not an option. Arizona is not listed.

      • Elizabeth

        What about Wrangler’s? That’s what I like.

        • Cliff Spectre

          I don’t have a problem with Wranglers but they don’t fit me well. They’re too straight up and down.

          • Elizabeth

            Yeah, I suppose the Men’s jeans are although I think they offer a Relaxed Fit in Men’s. Worth checking out maybe.

          • Legoge47

            They are not made in the USA, but then I don’t think Levis are either.

  • Red Baron

    Try the All American Clothing Company. https://www.allamericanclothing.com
    All American made, even the cotton! And not as expensive as you might think. Best pair of jeans I’ve owned.

    • Thomas Drapela

      You consider $59.95 cheap? I buy Wranglers at Wal- Mart for a lot less and they feel comfortable.

    What is the real reason business’s are donating large sums of money to sway politicians to take our firearms…making us helpless against the dictators in Washington who no longer support, defend or follow the the constitution that defines our republic. Politicians that almost always refer to our country as a democracy, which it is not.
    No where in the constitution or the Bill of Rights can the word – Democracy, Democrat, or Democratic – be found.
    It’s a lie.

    • Mrs. Patriot

      Levis has probably been offered an exclusive contract to make our uniforms when the nwo is in place.

      • iprazhm

        Hah! Probably.

    • Legoge47

      It’s A Constitutional Republic, at least so I’ve heard.

  • Elizabeth

    Wrangler’s are the only jeans for me, and have been for the last 30 years.


    Wear Arizona jeans from JC Penny, they are every bit as durable, comfortable as Levi’s, and you will never know the difference !

  • Joseph D.

    Bergh and Bloomberg.

  • Vicki Agee

    Have you checked LL Bean? I’m thinking they would either be neutral or possibly pro 2A. I would love to know for sure. Thanks.
