? ? Finally tonight, made in America. And more clothing coming back. And this evening, the promise for some clothes made here that you can trace the cotton right to the farmer.

We ordered a pair of jeans from them before. They arrived with a guarantee. Enter the code on your jeans, and it takes you straight to the farmer who grew the cotton. Hi, David! Reporter: We met the nickel family a year ago, but tonight, the company taking it even further. You can now trace their t-shirts, too. The cotton, from hundreds of American farms. And after our first report -- We experienced a 52% growth rate. Reporter: Opening another plant. But we still wondered, what about grandpa Lawson and Maddie in that field last year? Hi, David!
