Born In The U.S.A.: 5 All-American Pieces You Already Own

Trying to ID what American style is is as difficult as trying to ID what being American is all about. But if we're going to attempt to pinpoint it, there's something about versatile, purposeful, flattering fashion that feels as red, white, and blue as a deep-fried cherry pie on a stick. We've taken a moment to gather a few pieces that have earned their blue ribbon — and just like we Americans, some of these products are foreign exports (thank you, Scots, for plaid!), but it was U.S. industries that made them the widespread, now-iconic fashion staples they are now (thank you, Woolrich, for the plaid shirt!). Check out the six pieces you probably already own that have that All-American pedigree.
