What to Wear on Fourth of July: The Best American-Made Clothes for Men

Make no mistake, we’re all about dressing for the occasion, particularly if that occasion happens to be the Fourth of July. Instead of draping yourself in something covered in the Stars and Stripes, let’s take things up a notch in terms of style. Reach for uniquely patriotic menswear that just so happens to be made in America. You can put these picks together in one outfit or you can mix and match as you please. No matter what you do or where you go for the holiday, pack at least a few in your weekender bag. These are stylish picks that have a domestically made pedigree without going over the top. You’re going to be the best-dressed guy during your Independence Day celebrations, we guarantee that.
