Fall Into Comfort Made in USA

The leaves are starting to turn, the air is beginning to cool, and the days are getting shorter.

Do you know what that means? Fall is coming soon!

Fall means football, but at All American Clothing Co. it is officially 'blue jean season.' People will start wearing blue jeans again, making fall one of our favorite times of the year!

Dressing for fall gets tricky as you make the transition from summer, especially if you are considering to do so in only American made clothing items. Just 2% of the apparel purchased in the United States is actually American made. Fortunately, you have no worries at All American Clothing Co. We have got you covered!

Below, we have compiled some of our favorite made in USA clothing items for you to begin the fall season with. We hope you will try them all!

Please consider making the American made choice as you begin to layer up for the fall season. After all, if each American just spent $64 on made in USA clothing items, it would generate over 200,000 new jobs.

THE BIBLE – A Sneak Peek With Amanda Watkins

“The Bible” tells the story of America’s working man and woman. I’m a huge advocate of American made products and believe this song really celebrates and humanizes what it means to support American workers. I hope you all enjoy this “All American Exclusive” song and can’t wait to share the rest of the album with you! ~Amanda

THE BIBLE

I am a farmer’s daughter

I spend my days in the fields I know

Hard hands just like my father

The sweat of the brow

Taught me how to grow

Every day we're steady like a train

That's heavy from the freight

Night rolls in

When the fields they cry we kneel to the sky

We pray for rain just for survival

With the will of a bullet and a Bible as a gun

You ain't seen hard til it gets harder

We're living off the land

Of the workin’ man

Til the floods come

These days the wind blows stronger

And all my mama does is weep

And I work for two now

Cause all my daddy does is sleep

Every day we're steady like a train

That's heavy from the freight

Night rolls in

When the fields they cry we kneel to the sky

We pray for rain just for survival

With the will of a bullet and a Bible as a gun

You ain't seen hard til it gets harder

We're living off the land

Of the workin man

Til the floods come

The day came when I bartered

Off my land

To another man

And I moved into a city

To live out the dreams

That my father planned

We pray for rain just for survival

With the will of a bullet and a Bible as a gun

You ain't seen hard til it gets harder

We're living off the land

Now my children know it’s the price we've paid just to carry his name.

The Road Less Traveled

Meet Wayde “THE POOR MAN” Fishman. We met Wayde less than a year ago while vacationing in Hawaii. He is one of the most unique, exciting, and interesting men we have shared an adventure with.

Here`s Why:

This shaved headed, goatee wearing, tattoo covered, former MMA practioner from Boston moved to Hawaii 18 years ago to make his dreams come true and show others how to vacation or move to Hawaii on a poor man's budget. Today, he runs the adventurous Wayde's World Hawaii Tours.

Coming from a small suburb outside of Boston, Wayde has learned that the places you discover, the people you help along the way, and the experiences you live through on your life journey matters more than how much money you make or how many things you have.

Wayde left the hard edge lifestyle of Boston behind and changed to one of Aloha in Hawaii. He bases his life now on a spiritual journey, sharing the Spirit of Aloha with everyone he meets. He is passionate about making sure everyone and anyone should be able to enjoy Hawaii to the fullest, regardless of what budget they have.

He has recruited some of the best hiking guides and now is the best travel agency manager in the business to provide visitors with the most private, personal, and custom tours Hawaii has to offer. Wayde's guides all have their own lives and jobs, but like any super-hero movie, Wayde can assemble them together at any time using their special talents to help him give you one unforgettable experience of the island. Wayde's crew not only trail blaze Oahu, but seek adventure on other islands, discovering new places and learning new things about themselves as they challenge each other to go above and beyond their personal limits.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

The All American Clothing Co. would like to thank Wayde "The Poor Man" Fishman for allowing us to share his story. We`d also like to thank Wayde for supporting USA jobs by wearing some American made clothing items as he takes a walk on the wild side. The next time you visit the island of Oahu, be sure to give Wayde a call to schedule a tour! They are unforgettable.

It is a privilege to meet people like Wayde who care so much for their environment, the people around them, and their country. We hope to give back in the same sense as Wayde does by helping others through many efforts.

We appreciate the support we receive from people like Wayde all around the world. You keep us going! If we wanted to make more money, we`d move production overseas. We will not trade USA jobs for foreign profits. Together with your support, we can continue to grow and create jobs. Remember, if each American spent just $66 on American made goods, it would generate over 200,000 new jobs (source: ABC World News).

Thank you.

All American Clothing Co.

Lucas Oil Pro Pulling Season Begins For Judge Pulling Team

Lucas Oil Pro Pulling Season Begins

Judge Pulling Team Off to Rough Start, Long Season Ahead

Rainy weather led to challenging track conditions as the Judge Pulling Team took a ninth and sixth place finish respectively in a Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League event at the TS Outlaw Pull held in Franklin, KY.

With a lengthy season ahead, the team remains confident about producing better results and moving up in the point standings in 2014.

"Judge Pulling Team had a rough start to the 2014 season. Track conditions were not ideal and we had trouble navigating our tractor down the track. With a ninth and sixth place finish, we have a lot of ground to make up. It is a long season and we are confident that The iON Judge can make some headway into the top 5. We need to put together some good passes at the next three hooks." - Darrick Barga , The Judge Pulling Team

While the team is confident they will make up some ground in the points standings, it will not be an easy task.

"The e3 spark plug modified class is very competitive. There are a lot of tough tractors and drivers, anyone can win on any night. We are excited for the next Lucas Oil Champions Tour event at Wilmington and would like to thank team sponsors iON camera, E3 Sparkplugs, All American Clothing, and Ag Protect 1," Barga said.

The Judge Pulling Team currently holds 8th place in the points standings. They resume competition at the Clinton County Fairgrounds in Wilmington, OH Saturday June 14th.

The Big Package

Some things can only be handled in All American Jeans...

What is a Gusset?

Okay, we get asked this question ALOT.

I was recently asked the ‘what is a gusset?’ question by my father in law and let me tell you, it was so difficult to explain cleanly that I eventually resorted to pointing at my crotch in my All American Jeans and said ‘That is a gusset! It gives you more room and comfort!’ If you were not there for the show, I apologize. You will have to receive the proper definiton here.

A gusset is a diamond shaped piece of denim sewn into the crotch of our USA Made jeans. This eliminates 4 seams coming together in one place. We sew this ‘gusset’to help disperse stress around the crotch area to create a more comfortable fit and provide freedom of movement. Blue collar workers such as a roofers, plumbers, and farmers typically enjoy the extra space our gusset provides. When having to crouch down and work on your knees, a gusset keeps you out of a pinch.

When it comes to our American made jeans it is all about COMFORT! Don’t believe us?? Try a pair….If you aren’t 100% satisfied you can return your jeans within 90 days for a refund or exchange.

Rufus Mccooter Banner Title

The Legendary Legend Of Rufus McCooter

Tucked in the rural forests of Darke County, Ohio is the historic Bear`s Mill, where buhr stone ground flours & meals are produced. Built in 1849 by Gabriel Baer, Bear`s Mill is one of the few operating water powered mills left in Ohio today. The site and it`s water rights were granted to Major George Adams by President James Monroe in 1824.

The 'jeanius squad' from All American Clothing Co. visited Bear`s Mill recently for a tour with Master Miller Terry Clark. He shared with us many legendary stories that we will be featuring on All American Life.

None were more legendary than ‘The Legendary Legend of Rufus McCooter…’

Rufus McCooter has been described as an unusual being that roams Bear`s Mill causing mischief with his pranks. He has been heard stepping through the building, shutting doors, and dropping objects. To date, nobody has seen Rufus McCooter.

While many are skeptical of McCooter`s existence, scientists have visited the Bear`s Mill property to track his whereabouts. According to Master Miller Terry Clark, paranormal scientists have spent the night to produce evidence of mysterious activity taking place at Bear`s Mill throughout the evening hours.

Current Master Miller Terry Clark theorizes that McCooter`s existence originates from a previous master miller at Bear`s Mill. According to Clark, when working the mill alone he sometimes forgets to shut the main door. When he does, McCooter will sometimes shut it aggressively for him as if he done something wrong.

Clark also tells us that he, himself will play pranks on visitors of the mill and say it was Rufus McCooter, leaving this legendary tale up for your own interpretation.

Whether it is Terry himself or a spiritual being, the legendary tale of Rufus McCooter is one we`ll never forget!

About Bear`s Mill:

Terry and Julie Clark acquired the Bear’s Mill property in 1978 and ran it independently for over twenty years. The Clarks came naturally as caretakers of Bear’s Mill. Terry, having a fascination for old buildings and their workings was immediately drawn to the mill, and Julie, a potter, found the natural rustic setting of the mill and property appealing to her artistic senses.

In 1999, the Clarks started a non-profit organization to keep the historic mill open for the public to enjoy. But, in October 2013 Bear’s Mill and the surrounding property was purchased by The Friends of Bear’s Mill non-profit organization through funding received from a Clean Ohio Fund Grant administered by the Ohio Public Works Commission. Additional funds were provided by the Darke County Soil and Water District in return for a conservation easement guaranteeing the property would remain undeveloped and environmentally preserved. Further support was also provided by previous Mill owners Terry & Julie Clark. The Friends of Bear’s Mill are responsible for management, fiscal responsibility and operations, as well as maintenance of the 35 acres of woodlands, dams and levees on the Mill property. The Friends of Bear’s Mill now governs it with a goal is to keep the mill preserved and open for touring & educational purposes.

Visit the Bear`s Mill website today to help preserve its history!

All American Life: Amanda Watkins

Amanda Watkins joins us on All American Life this week. Here`s what she had to say about recording her upcoming country music album.

I can't believe I'm here.

I'm standing in the historic RCA Studio B in Nashville, TN. The same RCA Studio B where music icons such as Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, the Everly Borthers and two of my all time favorites, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, recorded their own albums. There are so many emotions running through my head and I can't help but feel like I'm spinning.

I brought my American Flag today to hang from the top of the balcony where Elvis used to make his band stand and watch him do Karate down on the main floor. Yes... that's true.

The flag is from my great uncle’s funeral. He served our Country in WWII.

I've decided to wear only American made clothing today. My All American Clothing Company jeans are fitting right in with the sentiment of my record. It's an American Made record.

All the instruments we are using today were made in the USA - my Gibson L200 guitar, Chris Powell’s Rogers drums and Brian Allen's Lakeland bass. It feels good to reflect on the hard work that has brought me to this day - the years put in, the sweat and many tears lets me know that I've earned this moment.

Nothing feels better than experiencing something that you feel like you've earned. Things like that last a lifetime. Like when something is hand made, from the heart, and the best quality workmanship and materials are put into it. Those things last forever. That's why I love everything American made and that's why I'm using as many American made instruments and gear as possible.

I’m building an American made record. It’s not made from plastic, but from what is unbreakable. It may take time to make and I will run into obstacles, but one thing rings clear throughout my journey, anything worth having is worth fighting for. And I have enough fight in me to last a lifetime.

 

So here I am. I’m thankful for the incredible support and love from my family and friends and thankful for all the hardships bared.

We are cutting a song today called “The Bible” and wanted to share the lyrics with you all.

Hope you enjoy!

Amanda

THE BIBLE

I am a farmer’s daughter
I spend my days in the fields I know
Hard hands just like my father
The sweat of the brow
Taught me how to grow

Every day we're steady like a train
That's heavy from the freight
Night rolls in
When the fields they cry we kneel to the sky

We pray for rain just for survival
With the will of a bullet and a Bible as a gun
You ain't seen hard til it gets harder
We're living off the land
Of the workin’ man
Til the floods come

These days the wind blows stronger
And all my mama does is weep
And I work for two now
Cause all my daddy does is sleep

Every day we're steady like a train
That's heavy from the freight
Night rolls in
When the fields they cry we kneel to the sky

We pray for rain just for survival
With the will of a bullet and a Bible as a gun
You ain't seen hard til it gets harder
We're living off the land
Of the workin man
Til the floods come

The day came when I bartered
Off my land
To another man
And I moved into a city
To live out the dreams
That my father planned

We pray for rain just for survival
With the will of a bullet and a Bible as a gun
You ain't seen hard til it gets harder
We're living off the land
Now my children know it’s the price we've paid just to carry his name
