When pundits speak of bringing back manufacturing jobs to the U.S., many people think of big factories with bustling assembly lines, but that might not be the right image to conjure up.
Luxury men's retailer Ledbury's business model, which targets small U.S. workshops to make high-quality goods, may be a more accurate image, the company's founders said.
"Companies will bifurcate their product lines," Ledbury CEO Paul Trible told CNBC. "Uniform-volume product will be made abroad, and highly personal, customizable goods will be created domestically. Our customers can choose from a ready-to-wear shirt made in Turkey, a made-to-measure shirt made in Poland or a truly bespoke shirt made in Virginia."
