Welcome Spring

Welcome Spring In Style!

It has been a very long and cool winter as record setting temperatures dropped to sub-zero in many parts of the country.

Even today, it is still bitter in some states which means we are even more excited about the upcoming warm temperatures to come with the season of Spring. After all - Spring has officially sprung!

The weather will be warming up before you know it!

We are looking forward to the many outdoor activities one can enjoy in our American made clothing styles.

Here are 10 of our favorite USA made clothing styles for Spring…

For Him:


Happy Birthday Abe.

1809: On February 12th, Abraham Lincoln was born in Hodgenville, Kentucky. There he grew up in a poor family. They later moved to Indiana.

1824: At age 15, Abraham was called 'Abe' by his friends for the first time. As work for hire for neighbors, he labors with plowing & planting. Throughout his life, Abe only attended school in the fall & winter of 1824, but insisted on educating himself through reading as he borrowed as many books as he could.

1834:As an adult, Lincoln moved to Illinois where he became a postmaster, surveyor, shopkeeper, and a politician. He also represented the state legislature until he eventually became an attorney.

1842: Lincoln married Mary Todd. They together raised four sons.

1850s: Abe returned to politics at a time when the nation was becoming divided due to slavery. As a leader of the Republican Party, Lincoln was regarded as politically moderate even on the subject of slavery. He advocated the limitation of slavery to the states in which slavery had already existed.

1854: Lincoln described slavery as a minor issue in a letter.

1858: During a Senate race, Lincoln warned that ‘a house divided against itself cannot stand.’ He did not win the seat to the Senate that year.

1860: Lincoln announced his candidacy for President. He reassured slaveholders that he favored abolition of slavery, but he had no intentions of ending slavery in the states where it already existed. His priority was saving the Union over freeing slaves.

Abraham Lincoln won the presidency by 400,000 popular votes and took the electoral college. His concessions to slaveholders led South Carolina & other states to remove themselves from the Union. This came soon after President Lincoln`s election.

1861: By February 1 of 1861, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas also seceded.

The Civil War had begun. As the war progressed, Lincoln moved closer to commit himself & the nation to abolish slavery.

1863: Lincoln signs the Emancipation Proclamation. The document freed slaves in the Confederate states. On November 19th, President Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address at a ceremony dedicating the battlefield as a National Cemetery.

1865: Abraham Lincoln is re-elected as President, defeating Democrat George B. McClellan. He received 212 of 233 electoral votes & 55 percent of the popular vote. On April 9 of 1865, The Civil War ended as General Robert E. Lee surrendered his Confederate Army to General Ulysses S. Grant at the village of Appomattox Court House in Virginia.

Almost a week later on April 14th, Lincoln and his wife Mary went to see the play "Our American Cousin" at Ford's Theater. Around 10:13 P.M. during the third act of the play, John Wilkes Booth shot the President in the head. Doctors attend to the President in the theater and moved him to a house across the street. He never regained consciousness.

At 7:22 AM on April 15th, Lincoln passed away. He is laid to rest on May 4th at Oak Ridge Cemetery outside of Springfield, Illinois.

Saving Valentine`s Day.

Did we ever tell you about the time we saved Valentine`s Day? Perhaps we did not save the day for everyone, but for one man – we may have saved his life!It was 2013, shortly after Valentine`s Day when we received the following letter from an ‘All American Secret Admirer…’

“To Whom It May Concern,

I thought it would be nice to get my wife something for Valentine`s Day this year. Since I forgot about it last year, she`d been reminding me of it. When a friend told me about All American Jeans, I knew right away this is what I`d get her.

We made plans to celebrate Valentine`s Day with a night out a week earlier because we wanted avoid the crowd. I ordered my wife`s jeans earlier that week. I couldn’t wait to give her the jeans. I knew she`d like them because she`s always bringing something home that is made in USA.

On the Saturday of our big day, I decided to offer her the gift. She opened it and was excited. It turns out she knew all about you guys. She started telling me about the tracing on the jeans. It felt like I redeemed myself from last year.

When she decided to try the jeans on, things went downhill.

“First you forget last year and now this!”

It turned out her jeans were the wrong size. My wife was upset with me… again.

I promised that I`d attempt to return the jeans the next Monday. If all went well, we could go out on Valentine`s Day weekend. When Monday came I called and spoke to a lady on the phone. I told her what happened & asked to exchange the jeans. She was kind and promised that I could return the pair for another that fits. After following her instructions, my wife received her new jeans only a few days later.This pair fit her nicely and we later enjoyed a night out at the steakhouse.

Thank you for saving Valentine`s Day, American jobs, and for saving my life!

All American Secret Admirer.”

Free returns & exchanges can save Valentine`s Day.


The Round Up

How was your month?

This month we watched the documentary Made In The USA: The 30 Day Journey once again. Have you seen it?

The challenges that Josh Miller overcomes to support made in USA products is gripping. It is not easy, but Miller shows it can be done. (As Mike Huckabee said, “I would like to think that there`s a desire to see it, number one because we have seen what happens when we outsource so much of the manufacturing to places like China.”) We really appreciate Josh Miller & his crew putting a film together that educates each & every one of us on the importance of American manufacturing.

Also, thank you all for your fun comments this month—please keep them coming! We enjoy reading all of them.

“Giving a gift that is made in America will not only make you feel the excitement to give a gift to family & friends. It may also make you feel proud because you are ultimately giving the gift of job support to the person who made it.”

Beam also insists that choosing American made for the holidays is ultimately a choice of the consumer.

“It comes down to choice of the consumer. I`m not trying to tell folks that made in America is the only option, or how they should spend their dollars. I`m simply saying that there is a made in America option and letting people know where it exists. It`s ultimately a choice of theirs.”

Kilroy Was Here

He is engraved in stone in the National War Memorial in Washington, DC. Back in a small alcove where very few people have seen it. For the WWII generation, this will bring back memories. For you younger folks, it’s a bit of trivia that is a part of our American history. Anyone born in 1913 to about 1950, is familiar with Kilroy. No one knew why he was so well known, but everybody seemed to get into it.

So who was Kilroy?

In 1946 the American Transit Association, through its radio program, “Speak to America,” sponsored a nationwide contest to find the real Kilroy, offering a prizeof a real trolley car to the person who could prove himself to be the genuine article. Almost 40 men stepped forward to make that claim, but only James Kilroy from Halifax , Massachusetts , had evidence of his identity.

‘Kilroy’ was a 46-year old shipyard worker during the war who worked as a checker at the Fore River Shipyard in Quincy . His job was to go around and check on the number of rivets completed. Riveters were on piecework and got paid by the rivet. He would count a block of rivets and put a check mark in semi-waxed lumber chalk, so the rivets wouldn’t be counted twice. When Kilroy went off duty, the riveters would erase the mark. Later on, an off-shift inspector would come through and count the rivets a second time, resulting in double pay for the riveters.

One day Kilroy’s boss called him into his office. The foreman was upset about all the wages being paid to riveters, and asked him to investigate. It was then he realized what had been going on. The tight spaces he had to crawl in to check the rivets didn’t lend themselves to lugging around a paint can and brush, so Kilroy decided to stick with the waxy chalk. He continued to put his check mark on each job he inspected, but added ‘KILROY WAS HERE’ in king-sized letters next to the check, and eventually added the sketch of the chap with the long nose peering over the fence and that became part of the Kilroy message.

Once he did that, the riveters stopped trying to wipe away his marks. Ordinarily the rivets and chalk marks would have been covered up with paint. With the war on, however, ships were leaving the Quincy Yard so fast that there wasn’t time to paint them. As a result, Kilroy’s inspection “trademark” was seen by thousands of servicemen who boarded the troopships the yard produced.

His message apparently rang a bell with the servicemen, because they picked it up and spread it all over Europe and the South Pacific.

Before war’s end, “Kilroy” had been here, there, and everywhere on the long hauls to Berlin and Tokyo . To the troops outbound in those ships, however, he was a complete mystery; all they knew for sure was that someone named Kilroy had “been there first.” As a joke, U.S. servicemen began placing the graffiti wherever they landed, claiming it was already there when they arrived.

Kilroy became the U.S. super-GI who had always “already been” wherever GIs went. It became a challenge to place the logo in the most unlikely places imaginable (it is said to be atop Mt. Everest , the Statue of Liberty , the underside of the Arc de Triomphe, and even scrawled in the dust on the moon.

As the war went on, the legend grew. Underwater demolition teams routinely sneaked ashore on Japanese-held islands in the Pacific to map the terrain for coming invasions by U.S. troops (and thus, presumably, were the first GI’s there). On one occasion, however, they reported seeing enemy troops painting over the Kilroy logo!

In 1945, an outhouse was built for the exclusive use of Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill at the Potsdam conference. Its’ first occupant was Stalin, who emerged and asked his aide (in Russian), “Who is Kilroy?”

To help prove his authenticity in 1946, James Kilroy brought along officials from the shipyard and some of the riveters. He won the trolley car, which he gave to his nine children as a Christmas gift and set it up as a playhouse in the Kilroy yard in Halifax , Massachusetts .

And The Tradition Continues…
