A 20-year anniversary deserves a big celebration and that’s exactly what Need Supply Company has done. The e-commerce retailer has stepped out of the online world to open its first brick and mortar location in its hometown of Richmond, Virginia.

The atmosphere emphasizes the company’s cozy minimalism, which promotes focusing on individual pieces in its collection.

When this company started out, it was known as Blues in reference to its vintage Levi’s, but the name evolved as the business grew to become the go-to destination for curated lifestyle products and high end clothing from Indie designers and global brands.

The company launched its online shop in 2008. Now, with the opening of its flagship store, the company carries more than 500 brands covering contemporary to luxury menswear, home, beauty and activewear.

If you can’t make it to Richmond, you can still benefit from an impressive online inventory. It’s great for buying gifts as well as giving hints about what you want to see under the tree. You can quickly filter items by price, brand, style, size and color.

There’s an eclectic mix of items here—the traditional coats, scarves and shirts mixed in with skateboard decks, stylish watches, grooming kits, beard oil, candles, rugs, and more.

We’ve picked out a few items to showcase from their inventory:

Steven Kurutz and American Giant endeavor to create a flannel 100% American made
Follow American Giant to bring flannel back to the USA

What makes the flannel shirt something that stays with us here in America? Is it the quintessential garment of the American worker? Does it make us feel as though we are driving horses across the plains in the old American West? How about working the day away, clearing logs from the Pacific Northwest to supply the entire country with the lumber needed to build houses, decks, and shop fronts? Or maybe we don't have to reach back as far to imagine the flannel renaissance of the 1990s bringing us the nostalgia of our childhood imitating Kurt Cobain on stage. Either way, the flannel is a staple of Americana, and American fashion brand American Giant has spent years attempting to bring that garment back home.

What started out as an article in the New York Times blossomed into a half-decade journey for author Steven Kurutz to chronicle AG's desire to bring flannel-making back to the shores of the United States and to save factory jobs in his new book, American Flannel. As a native of a small town in Pennsylvania, Kurutz has watched his town wither away as factory jobs were shipped overseas. For him, the book was more than a story of American determination; it was a personal connection to a quest to save his own hometown and others like it.
