The Long List of Made-in-America Gift Ideas for Men in 2022

The Christmas spirit has gone digital this year, but that doesn’t mean the holidays are going to be anything less than jolly. In fact, we have even more reason to celebrate this year because lucky for us, all those imported gifts managed to dodge the tariff bullet — at least so far — as deadlines and talks delayed the process, giving stores and customers a respite from the holiday season. Depending on how negotiations go, though, they may be in full force by early next year. Soak in the savings now while you can. 

No matter where your opinions on that particular political hot potato land, we think it’s always important to support businesses made in the United States and their workers. Below we’ve assembled more than a few of our favorite American menswear suppliers and some of their best offering for this holiday season. Support doesn’t always come cheap, though, so act now while many products are on sale for the holidays. These pieces offer as much loyal style as they do genuine patriotism.

Filson Rail-Splitter Jeans

Filson has been crafting high-quality, durable goods since 1897, and their rail-splitter jeans are a staple for the rugged outdoorsman. Manufactured in limited runs in the American West, these are the kind of jeans that can last a lifetime with proper care. They’re made with reinforced rear pockets and front-pocket bags in preshrunk raw or rinsed denim. Built for heavy wear, feel free to put these jeans to the test – they’ll withstand the toughest conditions.

Joseph Abboud Jacket

This handsome sport coat features a woven texture and slim trim fit that will make you look as great leading the new client pitch as it will when out doing dinner with a new date. Pair it with matching trousers for a head-to-toe coordinated look or play it down with jeans or chinos. It’s soft, tan hue also makes a great style for fall and winter dressing. Best of all, it’s made in Joseph Abboud’s New Bedford, Massachusetts factory.

Richer Poorer Pima Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

Richer Poorer Pima Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

We love this T-shirt for its simplicity and minimalistic, neutral hues. The durable, super-soft Pima cotton and long sleeves mean it will be your cool weather fave. It’s a great layering piece with a flannel shirt or just great on its own, and it’s made in Los Angeles.

Dearborn Denim Jeans

Dearborn Denim Jeans

The fit of these jeans is just about perfect with a straight leg, tapered a bit below the knee so they’re not too baggy, and a rise that hits right at the waistline. They’re great to pair with a sport coat and dress shirt for the office (which is why we like the dark wash) but do double-duty to show off your assets in the evening. A tiny bit of stretch for comfort, a Horween leather patch for class, and a gold leaf button for pizzazz complete the look. These jeans are crafted in the brand’s Chicago factory. 

Smartwool Ski Socks

Hey, if we gotta deal with winter, we might as well embrace it. If you’re planning any ski trips, these over-the-calf socks feature so much of Smartwool’s unbeatable construction technology: Indestructawool for longer wear, 4-Degree fit, mesh ventilation zones, and the Virtually Seamless toe. Skier and artist Chris Benchetler’s graphic designs make them so fun you won’t want to hide them under your ski boots. All Smartwool products are made in the US of A. 

Esquivel Boswell Boots

Esquivel Boswell Boots

A buttery suede ankle boot will serve your wardrobe well on any occasion, looking particularly great with jeans, but also adding a little attitude to a trim-fit suit. The Boswell is George Esquivel’s handmade version of the classic … and it’s made in Southern California! The soft natural color and texture will break in over time like your favorite pair of jeans, adding character and getting even more comfortable.

Johnson Woolen Mills Hunting Coat

Johnson Woolen Mills

These days a bright red plaid coat is more appropriate for hunting for the latest farm-to-table restaurant than for hunting rabbits, so we like this extra-warm number made by Johnson Woolen Mills in Johnson, Vermont. Break it out for a blazing alternative to your neutral dress coat or classic puffer. Dress it up with a white cable-knit turtleneck or go full-on lumberjack with a plaid flannel shirt.

Gitman Vintage Regimental Stripe Camp Shirt

A suave camp collar shirt adds a bit of old Hollywood glamour to these soft corduroy long-sleeved shirts. Gitman Vintage’s 2020 fall collection has the perfect selection of casual office and formal shirts. It’s cut and sewn in Gitman Bros.’ Ashland, Pennsylvania factory, where the designs are sourced and updated from archival styles. Tucked in, or worn out, it’s a perfect pairing with a classic cocktail.
