Flag Collection

Subtle, Patriotic Gear That's Made Right Here

Henley popover, $140

With the 4th of July creeping up fast, you can expect to see a bunch of Americana-inspired clothes on the horizon. And you'd be surprised to find out how many items of clothing baring the stars and stripes are made overseas. It doesn't make sense to wear patriotic clothes if they're not made in the USA, does it? That's why we're digging Feltraiger's American Flag print collection. The New York-based brand proudly manufactures its wares in the city's Garment District along with clothing factories in Chicago—limiting products to short runs of 30. Not only does that mean you have to act quick, it means the chances of running into someone with the same exact shirt, shorts or hat is relatively slim—which is actually an advantage when you're in the market for novelty gear. Rather than going fully red, white and blue, we appreciate how they've done up these three easy pieces in a navy fabric with a small all-over flag print. They're definitely all-American, but not at all hokey. Meaning you can keep wearing them long after the fireworks. Just don't wear them all at once.

Styling Tip
Balance these out with simple garments like solid cotton shorts, soft T-shirts and white sneakers.
