Manready Mercantile and American Trench

In earlier posts, we’ve sung the praises of both Manready Mercantile and American Trench.

Manready Mercantile is quickly becoming something of a national institution. Located on 19th street in the Houston Heights, it has made a commitment to stocking expertly curated American made clothing and accessories.

Happily, one of the brands Manready stocks is American Trench. As we’ve indicated before, American Trench had its beginnings in a desire to manufacture outerwear in the United States; within a few years, it expanded beyond its initial line of trench coats. Its socks are of particular note–things of true beauty with a dedication to pattern and color that is rare among American made men’s hosiery.

I purchased a pair in navy and tan cotton houndstooth–sold out on the American Trench website. I’m a sucker for a good houndstooth, and these are a sterling example.
