American brand clothing seen at North Korean garment factory

U.S. clothing brand Lands' End to "address the issue appropriately"

American clothing displaying "Made in China" tags have been spotted at a North Korean garment production factory, photos exclusively obtained by NK News reveal.

At least five dress shirts branded with Lands’ End labels were seen on a rack displaying previous projects at North Korea's Sonbong Textile Factory in June, raising the possibility that the Dodgeville, Wisconsin-based catalog retail giant has outsourced part of its production line to a country currently under multiple U.S. sanctions.
