July 4th – 4 Ways To Support Made in America And Create Jobs

1. Check the tag or label.

This is simple. When shopping for that cookout, check the tag on the item you are about to purchase to see if it`s made in USA. If you are comparing between two or more items, knowing you will create jobs by selecting one product over another will make your decision easier.

2. Attain food from the farmer`s market.

Some of us have large families! If that’s the case, you can save money, buy local, and feed an entire family a meal or two through supporting local farmers markets. The American farmer is one of the most dedicated and hardworking people in our country. The saying “If you had a good meal today, thank a farmer” holds a lot of truth to it. We also have a lot of farmers to thank for growing the cotton used in our USA Made tees! You can thank a farmer over July 4th weekend by visiting the farmer`s market!

3. Raise Awareness with a friend.

July 4th is often a great time to catch up with friends and family. This makes an ideal time to raise awareness on that 'Not Made In China tee shirt' you proudly wear! You do not even have to say anything to them. Just raise awareness in setting an example through your actions. Show everyone how it`s done!

4. Search for Made in USA sales online throughout the weekend.

Like us, there are many distributors of Made in USA merchandise who can be found online. All will have sales deals that you cannot pass up! Search for them on google! Ask Siri! They can help you. Join us at All American Clothing Co. for a great deal on made in USA jeans and tees to get started.


As a closing remark, we encourage and CHALLENGE you to take these 4 steps towards making a difference. Following these steps can go a long way in creating new jobs. We also CHALLENGE you to support at least one made in USA product over the weekend. You can make a difference! If each American spent just $64 on USA made products, it will generate over 200,000 new jobs.

Start today!

Bob hiking

Men`s Health Month – Hike For Fitness!

Who says a work out needs to always be at the gym?

There are many other activities that will keep you on the go! Hiking, basketball, golf, tennis, swimming, volleyball, and many more absolutely benefit health and wellness. All make the time go by faster, can be done with friends, and create a workout with less work and more fun!

We chose to go hiking this week because it truly is such a powerful cardio work out. It can lower your risk of heart disease, improve you blood pressure & blood sugar levels, boost bone density, and build strength in your legs, glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps! When hiking in beautiful settings, it can boost your mood in combating against symptoms of stress and anxiety. Hiking is also fun in the comfort of made in USA items! 

Do you hike? Please let us know your favorite spot! We`d love to check it out!

Judge Winners Circle

Judge Pulling Team Off To Good Start

Our friends at Judge Pulling Team are off to a great start in the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League! Currently, they are tied for 3rd place in points after 2 events. One of which included their first Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Champions tour win since 2012.

"The Judge Pulling Team went to work in the off-season to better understand their tractor and how to get the power to the ground," said team member Darrick Barga. "Going through our own data and talking with other individuals involved in the sport of truck and tractor pulling, we put together a plan. It starts with the setup. Having clean cut tires for each run, preventive maintenance, air pressure in tires, spotting the sled, and track conditions. We have control over most of the variables but one the most important, the track, we don't. We have to use it the way it is. When we go to the track, it is imperative that the tractor is ready to preform at its best."

As the season progresses, the Judge Pulling Team will look to stay near the top of the standings.

"So far, we like the results we are getting from the changes we have made. We have put some good runs on track to get our 1st Lucas Oil PPL Champions Tour win since 2012. And 2 - Top 3 finishes out of 4 events. We will continue to work hard to keep The iON Judge Next Generation on top and in the points race. It won't be easy as there are a lot of tough competitors in the modified class," Barga noted.

All American Clothing Co. is proud to see the Barga Boys and their Judge Pulling Team doing good (and looking good in USA made) as they chase a championship this season. Keep up the good work guys!

Here is an unofficial look at points race in the E3 Spark Plug Super Modified Tractor class:

1) Steve Bunnage Motorsports​ Takes a Lickin' - 184

Men`s Health Month - 5 Tips To Help Get You Started

1 – Get Enough Sleep
Our number one advice is to get sleep! You cannot stay energized to make healthy decisions throughout the day without sleep. Try to get at least 7-9 hours of sleep if you can!

2 – Find a Workout You Love To Do
Make it easier on yourself. Do something you enjoy so that you will not feel that working out is a chore. If you like to play a sport like basketball or tennis, get together with friends to play the game. Are you an avid outdoors man who loves to hike? Get out there in the wilderness and enjoy it!

3 – 30 Minutes A Day
Every day, set aside at least 30 minutes to do some type of physical activity. You may have a set schedule on weight room days, or days you decide to run a few miles. Adding to this with an active lifestyle that takes place EVERYDAY will help your healthy lifestyle. On your ‘off days’ try playing backyard games with the family, going on walks, or riding bikes. There are some forms of errands you can do like mowing the grass or going grocery shopping that can help as well.

4 – Get Social
Share all the healthy decisions you are making with family, friends, and even colleagues at work! Start a fitness group on social media where you can be held accountable. Friends can be the best motivators.

5 – Distract Yourself
Like to watch TV? Set your treadmill in front of it. Love the great outdoors? Try running on trails in a nearby nature preserve or park. Enjoy music? Listen to an ipod while you run or work out. The more your can distract yourself, the longer you`ll work out without even feeling like it!

Please stay tuned throughout the month of June as we will continue to share some fun ideas to keep up with your health and wellness!

“Stop”

Stop the cookout, party, and shopping spree

To remember those who were brave enough to keep America free.

Stop to remember the ones who took the battlefield with pride.

And never forget the reasons for which they have died.

Reasons of patriotism, sacrifice, and love for country that ring so true.

Stop and be thankful they gave up their lives for you.

Making It In America: KettlePizza

We are proud to be 'Making it in America' today with our friends Al Contarino and George Peters, who both co-founded KettlePizza, which gives you the opportunity to turn your grill into a wood fired pizza oven!

Please tell us a about yourself.

Al Contarino and I are inventors. Our passion is to create and develop products that can make people's lives fun, safer or easier.

Why is 'Making it in America’ significant at KettlePizza?

Right from the beginning when Al had the idea for the KettlePizza we knew it could be Made in America. We wanted to help put more people to work, here at home, rather than send jobs overseas. We knew it may be hard but so what, hark work, commitment and passion for doing things the right way will always win out in the end.

What challenges has Kettle Pizza overcome throughout history in order to continue Making it in America?

When you develop a product that no one has seen or used before, finding suppliers that can do custom work was difficult. We overcame that problem because as we grew, more and more people would send us information about companies in the US that we could source materials. Quality materials, that American companies and people are known to produce can never be taken for granted.

How have you personally expressed a passion for American manufacturing?

The strength of our country has always been developing new ideas into viable high quality products the rest of the world wants to own. Anyone can make JUNK, we don't make junk in America, Al and I will never make junk at KettlePizza. FYI, I bought a belt at All American Clothing Co. that is so well made that besides holding up my pants, it could be used to tow a car!

There are many places one could enjoy KettlePizza. What is your favorite?

take a sunday drive

American Pastimes: Taking A Sunday Drive

Remember the days when it was common for a man to get out the hot rod for a Sunday drive?

Cruising on a Sunday was once a very popular tradition in the United States. Men and their classic cars would take their girlfriends, wives, and/or families on a car ride each Sunday. This really was a manly thing to do! The goal was to not go anywhere particular, but to drive around and share time together. Maybe they would stop to get a milk shake or share a few laughs. Some would take a drive after church on Sundays. Sunday drives became popular around the time that the automobile was becoming an item in every household. Well-paved roads were starting to become more readily available. It was really a fun time. Nowadays, you may see folks with classic cars doing this but anyone can take a Sunday drive in any car.

We recommend trying in made in USA clothing items! It is quite fun... and comforting!
