Where Are You Wearing?

Where Are You Wearing?

Would you follow your underwear all the way to Bangladesh? Probably not. Author and self-described "Touron" Kelsey Timmerman did, though. He followed his favorite boxers halfway around the world on a quest to learn about the people and places that made them. And then he followed his jeans to Cambodia, his t-shirt to Honduras, and his shoes to China. A globe-trotting tour of the garment industry may not be the perfect vacation, but putting faces on his consumerism made a lasting impression on Timmerman, and he will be sharing his insights and experiences with us on Wednesday. So check your clothing labels and tune in to find out about where you are wearing.
