True Grit


A newfound appreciation of flags has been one of the better legacies of the Americana movement. Now if they just didn’t have those pesky countries attached…

Standard Grit’s flags are a bit different—celebrating sentiments like “Whole Hog,” “Under Dog” or (of course) “Grit.” A few hundred bucks buys you two feet of immaculately weathered cotton with the inspiring words stitched onto the front, made for framing or draping over the back of a couch. And if you’ve got a couple rivets handy, they shouldn’t be too hard to hoist up a flagpole.

Flag Waving


There’s a long, proud history of wearing the American Flag as a scarf. We’re thinking of Cat Power in particular.

This garbstore version is smart enough to switch the design around a little—we always preferred the stars to the strips anyway—but the essence is still a rough cotton item that wouldn’t look too out of place on Captain America. (Peter Fonda, not Steve Rogers.) It’s a pretty cheeky take on Americana, but nobody ever made an impression by beating around the bush.

And yes, it’s made in Japan.
