Especially for dress shirts, I think you might want to pop the extra coin for linen. They're better looking, and last twice as long (or more), and they are really comfortable. It's amazing what the lack of polyester will do for a guy. It even makes your skin better. It doesn't stick to you if you get a little sweaty. That especially cool under your collar if you are wearing a tie.

I think they quit making Bill Blass silk ties. Bummer.

As far as the Made in America thing goes.... I don't think a guy could dress himself... you can get a belt or this or that... but the idea you could really get dressed using only US products is over... You could wear a pair of Red Wings and Carhardt coveralls. Some Carhardt stuff is still US made. My Caterpillar hat was made in China.
