There is an article in the new issue of Newsweek (Feb. 9) about the rise of classic American clothing. I think Andrew Romano — the author and ACL reader — did a good job of getting to the core of this movement (having a hard time with the word trend, I am). The fact of the matter is, classics are classics and they will always be in play. Work wear, hunting gear, Americana is good in small doses. Like all things in life, moderation is key. Otherwise, it is a costume. The thing to remember is that it is good to support the few Americans that actually make things anymore. Shout out to Aaron Levine. What do you guys think of his outfit?
