All-American Apparel for an All-American You
The clothes you wear make a statement. They say a lot about not only your style and personality, but also what’s important to you. If you wear something with your favorite sports team’s logo on it, people will know you like that team. It’s the same for American Flag apparel and other patriotic gear. Sporting red, white and blue makes a bold statement about your patriotism—and buying American-made apparel only reinforces this sentiment.

Can You Wear the American Flag as Clothing?
At The Flag Shirt, one of the most common questions we’re asked is whether you can wear the flag as clothing. It’s an understandable question: many people want to show their patriotism with the flag, but don’t want to disrespect it or what it represents. Can you wear the flag as clothing?
It’s a controversial issue, but one we’re happy to weigh in on. We strongly believe that yes, you can wear the flag as clothing—so long as you’re respectful to it and embody the values behind it. We’ve actually consulted veterans and service member groups to get a definitive answer for our customers. Here’s what the America Legion states for wearing patriotic clothing:
Unless an article of clothing is made from an actual United States flag, there is NO breach of flag etiquette whatsoever. People are simply expressing their patriotism and love of country by wearing an article of clothing that happens to be red, white, and blue with stars and stripes. There is nothing illegal about the wearing or use of these items.
We agree. So long as the person wearing the clothing understands their duty to uphold its values and respect the meaning behind those colors, we believe it’s a great opportunity to express your patriotism and pride. However, we also understand that some people might not be comfortable with the flag as apparel. It’s a sensitive issue, and one we’ll always strive to be on the right side of as we continue to sell U.S.A-made, high-quality, respectful flag apparel.
Why Buy Made in the USA?
As a business, we’re committed to Made in the USA products, and we hope you can also join us in supporting local businesses. In a very competitive global market for goods, many companies have decided to outsource their manufacturing to foreign factories. The benefits of this move overseas are cheaper cost of goods and better margins. They can match the competition and sustain their businesses another day.
Unfortunately, these benefits come at the cost of American jobs, wages and opportunities.
As local factories close, many jobs are lost and many families are affected. Local manufacturers are often unable to match the lower costs of offshore alternatives in a race to the bottom. In the end, their products may be deemed too expensive, even though they’re of a higher quality.
When you choose to buy products Made in the USA, you make a difference—even in your own community. You boost the local economy and local investment opportunities. You help to maintain our jobs and independence. Above all, you perpetuate the creation of high-quality products, fair working conditions and even environmental sustainability.
At the end of the day, we take pride in bringing our customers all-American apparel for an all-American you!
