The Fourth of July is so close, we can nearly taste it.
And we’ve always been of the mind that when it comes to dressing for the most patriotic day of the year, you’ve got permission to get loud. Therefore, to fully commit to the spirit of the day, we’ve rounded up your finest options for donning an all red, white and blue kit—made entirely in the good old US of A, naturally.
It’s hard to get behind an article of clothing that you can only wear once or twice a year, but you’ve probably already got a few resting in the far corner of your closet that you’ve realized you can’t live without. (Namely, a tuxedo).
So, for the upcoming Independence Day festivities, you might consider picking up these star-spangled sneakers from the makers of some of our favorite summer shoes, Superga (hat tip). First, a word of caution: we’re never in support of using a holiday as an excuse to throw sartorial caution to the wind. But sometimes things come together and just work. Case in point: this Fourth of July, you’re going to be outdoors (probably in a casual setting, standing on grass or near a barbecue) and feeling extremely patriotic. What’s more, you can only get a pair of these limited-edition kicks by actually visiting their NYC flagship—meaning, it’s going to require a bit more effort (and reflection) than a mouse click.
It’s not often you can match your shoes to your can of beer.
If the 4th of July weekend has reminded you just how few red-white-and-blue sweaters you own, we’ve got good news: Thom Browne’s Black Fleece is on sale through the 5th, with as much as 40% off in places. These are two of our favorites so far, but if you felt a sudden urge for a patriotic linen scarf, they could probably hook you up.
