Orvis has released their U.S. Patent Collection – a collection of historically significant pieces all made in America. There isn’t much in the collection that isn’t tough and cool; it’ll probably be in a rotation for many, many years, and only look better with age. Included in the collection are pieces by Gitman Brothers, Taylor Supply, Red Wing, and Ford.
Some of my favorites:
(Clockwise starting at the Flag):
1. Pure Cotton 13 Star American Flag: I can’t think of anything greater to have framed and displayed proudly.
3. Cavalry Scout Belt: How about that buckle with canvas? Look out…
4. Taylor Supply Hill Climber Jacket: Looks like a worthy Barbour alternative.
5. Gitman Tartan OCBDs: Very appropriate for Fall.
6. Rising Sun Long Sleeved Tee Shirt: Like an old jersey. Without any numbers.
