The Fourth of July is a time to celebrate in American fashion at outdoor parties complete with burgers, hot dogs and, of course, denim. The fabric is intertwined in American history, with San Francisco-based heritage denim brand Levi’s famously introducing the world to jeans in 1873 with its classic 501 style. Originally intended for mining work, the jeans feature a loose, straight fit, and have since served as the inspiration for all other jeans.
Celebrate the day accordingly with some of the following hand-selected items including summer denim and non-denim garments that American blue bloods are sure to love.
