As a longtime lawyer in the apparel industry, Mark Jaeger has seen firsthand how companies have shifted much of the production process abroad that was once done mostly in the U.S., resulting in a much more complex supply chain.

He joined Jockey International Inc. in 1993 and was promoted to general counsel two years later. In all his years at the job, he said he’s never seen anything quite like the current set of circumstances presented by President Donald Trump’s talk of imposing additional tariffs on goods from China, which could potentially include duties on clothing and apparel.
