Fall’s Here and So Are Todd Shelton’s New Flannel Shirts

The Fall is, by far, my favorite season. I am in my element the minute the temperature drops low enough to throw on a flannel shirt. toddshelton_flannel1Which brings me to the latest additions to my wardrobe: two flannels shirts from the new line by Todd Shelton, which I received as birthday gifts. (Thank you, family.)toddshelton_flannel2 I love the plaid patterns I received: Autumn Carpenter is a light to mid weight 100% cotton flannel in dark blue with orange stripes.toddshelton_flannel3The Sequoia flannel is a heavier material and features green earth tones with red accent stripes.toddshelton_logoIf you’re a regular reader of the blog, you know that I’m a huge fan of this East Rutherford, NJ-based manufacturer. We’ve been to his facility several times, which you can read about here and here. I got measured in his small showroom, which I’d recommend for anyone who lives in or visits the New York City area.

With Todd Shelton, the fit is everything – and once you set up your fit profile, every piece is like a custom-made item. (Just don’t make the mistake of losing/gaining weight and not updating your profile.)toddshelton_womenIn the past my posts about Todd Shelton have focused only on menswear, but now Todd is developing a line of women’s wear, so, in the future, you might be getting a post or two from Kathy.

Meanwhile, guys, if you appreciate quality, fit and style you owe it to yourself to check-out Todd Shelton.

A Dozen Durable Work Pants and Work Jeans Made-in-USA

This post is dedicated to my cousin Jim, who says that he can’t find American-made work pants.Stan-Ray Apparel produces Double Knee Construction Pants, Carpenter Pants, Cargo Pants, Painter’s Overalls and more. They don’t have their own online store yet, but check out the selection at All Seasons Work Uniforms.

Round House offers carpenter jeans, everyday jeans and overalls for men. If you need some jeans for a really dirty job, they sell their irregulars at crazy-low prices starting at $14.95.Duluth Trading makes the humorously-named Ballroom Jeans with hidden gusset.The All American Clothing Company has a variety of jeans for men and women. They don’t really make a distinction between work jeans and other styles, but you can kind of judge for yourself.

L.C. King Manufacturing, the creators of Pointer Brand workwear, makes coveralls, overalls, work pants and jeans for men and women.Texas Jeans has multiple styles of denim, including fire-resistant work jeans for men.These Union Line Carpenter Jeans can be found on All USA Clothing.Red Ants Pants specializes in workwear for women.

Steamhorse Railroad Gauge Gusset Workpants feature “extra room in the caboose.”Diamond Gusset also makes gusseted jeans for men and women.Carhartt has three remaining styles of work pants on its site that are made in the USA. However, another American-made style – perhaps older stock – is being sold on the All USA Clothing site.
