TOMS – An earthier option – these TOMS Freetown Sabados are what happens when a skater and a hippie have a child. Made with a solid canvas toe front and a perforated mid-to-heel. A bold approach to the brands most relaxed style. Also great for those unbearable August heat waves. Buy a pair here.

Calvin Klein – Langston Slip On Shoe is a basic, no fuss option. It’s also the featured item in their advertising campaign. It’s also on sale – so think fast. Purchase here.

J.D. Fisk makes a more futuristic looking slip on. Made in either black or brown leather with a translucent rubber sole. A quirky twist on an already quirky kick. Purchase through MyHabit.

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.
