American Giant, is a new line of high-quality menswear, that focuses on the basics.

The company was founded by former Chrome bags President Bayard Winthrop, with the intention of rethinking the process of American-made goods and reinforce the values of domestic production. The first line from the brand features a number of affordable garments including five variations on the sweatshirt made with an exclusively produced, 14.8oz cotton fleece.

The garments’ are made from a durable heavy-duty cotton, that kind of reminded me of Carhartt, minus the workwear aesthetic. All styles feature double reinforced shoulders, elbows and forearms to extend the life of each piece, and the entire line is outfitted with exaggerated four-inch cuffs and waistband that offer comfort and security without a feeling of restriction.
