Why Do We Celebrate the Fourth of July?
July 4, 1776, was the date that many of our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. Even though the Revolutionary War had already erupted, the final decision to separate from England was not made until this date.
The Fourth of July is a nationally recognized federal holiday that commemorates this historic event. It also encourages all of us to reflect on the joys and benefits of being an American.
When Did Patriotic Clothing Become a Thing?
In order for flag clothing to take hold, improvements had to happen in the textile and clothing industries, which didn’t occur until the late 19th century, after the Civil War. At that point, American flags--both traditional and stylized--began to make an appearance at political rallies and other events.
Beginning in the 1950s, the Cold War sparked an outpouring of patriotic fervor and American pride, and this was when patriotic clothing began to be more popular. In addition, clothing became less uniform and mass production made it more affordable, especially items such as patriotic men’s caps and patriotic women’s tees.
Patriotic clothing took off in the 1990s when designers like Ralph Lauren and stores like Old Navy made patriotic products staples of their inventory. Since then, it has become more and more popular with items like:
- Patriotic leggings
- Patriotic board shorts
- Patriotic snapback hats
- Patriotic gaiter face masks
- Patriotic shaker bottles
- Much more!
Let’s take a closer look at our favorite 15 American flag products.
15 Best Patriotic Products That Show Your American Pride
T-shirts and other tops are a great way to demonstrate your love for your country. Let’s start with the best patriotic men’s shirts.
This patriotic product features the great seal of the United States of America on the top left of the front of the shirt, and a reflective American flag on the right arm, both printed in white. The back of the shirt has a print of our beloved 1776 flag.
The 1776 flag is the original flag flown over the 13 colonies that became the first states. If you’re a Constitutional originalist, then this might be the perfect shirt for you.
As with the 1776 shirt, the Land of the Free Tee has the Great Seal of the United States on the front left in white and a white flag on the right sleeve in mirror-view. The back has a stylized version of today’s 50-star flag with the patriotic message, “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave,” which is what we all stand for.
This t-shirt looks great with patriotic board shorts especially, or one of our other best patriotic men’s shorts.
Looking to add a little humor to your Fourth of July barbeque? Look no further than this uproarious t-shirt featuring one of our founding fathers--Benjamin Franklin--proudly holding a shot and wearing some patriotic products of his own.
Why Ben? He famously quipped, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” Clearly, this red-blooded American hero enjoyed a drink or two in his day, as well!
This patriotic women’s t-shirt features a stylized image of the current American flag on the front. It is made from 100% cotton and provides a tailored fit with a flattering scoop-neck. It is premium quality and professionally printed.
This super soft and comfortable patriotic women’s hoodie pays homage to our great nation’s founding in 1776. It features 13 stars representing the 13 colonies who bravely declared independence from Great Britain at a time when it was the most powerful country in the world.
Because the 76 logo directly references the signing of the Declaration of Independence, it’s perfect for watching the fireworks on a cool Fourth of July evening.
Patriotic leggings are hot items right now. Patriotic women’s leggings are comfortable and fit well, and this particular pair features a feminine and fun butterfly design.
These leggings are super stretchy, made of 87% spandex and 13% nylon. They’re premium quality and double-hemmed stitched. Be aware that they run small, so consider ordering a size larger, just in case.
Patriotic leggings aren’t just for women, either! We have a selection of patriotic men’s leggings to check out, too (though they may want to skip the butterflies).
Patriotic Hats and Headwear
These aren’t just perfect for the Fourth of July, but for every day of the year. Whether you need to keep the sun off your face or stay warm in winter, Tactical Pro Supply has your head covered. Let’s take a look at our favorite headwear American flag products.
This patriotic flexfit hat is a structured six-panel, mid-profile American flag product with a slightly curved visor and black under visor. The flag patch is woven, not glued on, for long-lasting durability. It is available in two sizes.
The venting in the back helps keep your head cool on sunny, hot days, so no need to worry about the black getting too hot. As with all of our products, this hat is proudly made, packaged, and shipped in the USA.
This American flag hat flexfit is ideal for either men or women. It has a curved visor with a black under visor and comes in two sizes that fit true-to-size. The gray color is more subtle, so it pairs well with a pair of more colorful patriotic board shorts or other patriotic products.
This hat is made of 55/42/3 poly-cotton/spandex. It is a structured 6-panel with venting in the back, and the black and white flag patch is woven. All materials are of premium quality.
This warm and comfortable patriotic beanie features a thin red line design on an embroidered patch. It is made from 100% acrylic materials and is one size fits all. The thin red line shows your solidarity with our brave firefighters.
Don’t forget to check out our patriotic snapbacks, as well as patriotic face gaiters and patriotic gaiter scarfs, and all of our other patriotic products that feature the thin red line or thin blue line (to show support for police officers and law enforcement).
Bottoms and Patriotic Leggings
Why stop up top? Show your pride for America with American flag products on the bottom, as well: everything from patriotic board shorts to patriotic sweatpants and more.
These solid black board shorts with the white crest flag design are ideal for showing your American pride on hot days or working around the house on the weekends. Made from a 90/10 polyester and spandex blend, they dry fast and fit true to size.
These patriotic board shorts are men’s, but there are also women’s patriotic board shorts available as well.
These patriotic sweatpants have the same white crest design as the patriotic board shorts above. These soft and cozy pants are made from 100% polyester and have an elastic waistband with a drawstring. They can be worn by either men or women for lazy days lounging around the house.
These unique patriotic leggings feature an American flag and rose overlay design that you won’t find anywhere else. Like all of our patriotic leggings--both patriotic women’s leggings and patriotic men’s leggings--these are premium quality made from 87% spandex and 13% nylon.
They are super comfortable and are double-needle hemstitched for added comfort. They tend to run a bit small, so order a size up if needed.
Accessories and Other Patriotic Products
There are tons of other American flag products to highlight your love of your country. Tactical Pro Supply carries everything from patriotic gaiter masks to patriotic women’s socks and patriotic men’s socks, to patriotic shaker bottles and patriotic metal flags. Let’s look at a few of our favorites.
Even though most states don’t require face coverings anymore, patriotic face gaiters are still great items to have. In cold weather, they keep your face and neck warm. They can also be used to protect your face while working, or even protect your face from surveillance cameras for when you want to fly under the radar.
This American flag product is ideal for both men and women.
These socks--which feature one blue sock with white stars and one red and white striped sock--add the perfect element of fun to a holiday outfit. They make great patriotic men’s socks or patriotic women’s socks, and they come in two sizes and are made from stretchy material: 86% nylon, 2% spandex, and 12% polyester.
While not something you wear, this patriotic steel flag can still be a great way to display your pride in America. The black and white stylized flag is perfect for hanging in a backyard recreation area, garage, inside your home, or for displaying on the outside of your home. It measures 22.5 x 13.5 inches.
The Most Important Thing
Even more important than the patriotic products you wear or display is the patriotism that you demonstrate every day. Let these American flag products inspire you and remind you how lucky you are to be an American! The best part is, our proceeds go to benefit the PTSD Foundation.
