Levi Strauss for Brooks Brothers

A combination of two American classics. Although individually the brands have migrated from some of their made in USA roots over the years for majority of the mainstream stuff, the really quality product is still being made in America. The style of Levi's classics are available in two different washes: 501, 505, 514. With regards to iconic style this probably makes the Top 5 of Best of Made in the USA.

Johnson Woolen Mills Backpack

So here is another story of revival. The original Johnson Woolen Mills have been producing products in Vermont since the late 19th century, but like too many of American companies they've fallen on hard times. Sometime around a decade ago a revival came, but the most important part was that the products are still made in the USA.

Today, hipsters rejoice at all the fashionable gear they can find at JWM, but know that even though it's plaid, it's so because of function and not because of current trends. I love this backpack.

Cold Splinters hiking shorts

Outdoors doesn't mean that your fashion sense will have to suffer, nor does it mean that form can't follow style. With the warm weather hitting most areas unusually early, now is the perfect time to gear up for your outdoor adventures with these all American made shorts. These being made by good people in Oregon, will function in the environment that they've been designed for for years to come. So stay cool this summer and stay in style.

Johnson Woolen Mills Plaid Shirt

Now this is a true made in America classic, made in Vermont to be specific. And not is it a classic, but this is an item that knows no boundaries, whether you're a hipster, a lumberjack or a grandpa, anyone can rock this shirt/jacket. Proudly made, for whatever function, it will keep you warm and in style. Many, many variations are available, but the green one shown here is my favorite.
