American Built Clothing
American Built Clothing is an apparel company launched by two lifelong friends and U.S. veterans, KC and Nick. KC served in the Navy and Nick was a Marine sniper who served three tours. They reunited to start their own company – making sure every inch of the company is American-made, from the cotton to the screen printing. With every purchase, you're directly supporting our country's Veterans.
“We want people to be proud of what they wear, and be proud of where they are from.”
Heroes Vodka was founded by U.S. Marine Corps Veteran Travis McVey. Heroes Vodka is made in the USA from 100% American corn. A percent of every purchase goes to AMVETS to develop community assistance programs for American veterans, active duty military, and their families.
BrokenGear is a company founded by disabled veteran Steve D'Amico that sells clothing and items in support of disabled veterans, and disabled athletes. The company's BrokenGear Bags are handmade in the USA from the unserviceable uniforms of American servicemen and women. These bags are designed to attach to belts (prosthetic hands don't fit into pants pockets) and wheelchairs. A percentage of every BrokenGear Bag sale goes to help provide gym equipment, membership, and support to disabled athletes.
Love of Country
Love of Country is a new clothing company (started less than a year ago) owned and run by a husband and wife team, Joe and Kristen Knoetgen. Joe is an Air Force Medic and EMS Volunteer. The couple started Love of Country with the goal to outfit American's with clothing that shows pride and support for our nation's military, police, fire, and EMT. Love of Country T shirts for men and women are made completely in the USA. I was sent the Ladies Debut Organic/ RPET Tee which is made from 50% organic cotton and 50% recycled polyester fabric (made from plastic bottles). This Eco-friendly and patriotic T shirt is super soft, comfortable, and fits great. Love of Country is currently running a Kickstarter campaign.
