I am leaving the US, and chances are I will not be coming back on a permanent basis. I have a very specific request/ question for SF members. Before I leave- which is likely to happen by end August - I want to stock up on SW&D items (clothing, shoes, briefcases). The assumption is that they will be much too expensive to buy when I'm outside the US. The key is that I want to buy these things that 'fundamentally' and 'essentially' represent the US, and are unique to this country. For example, I wouldn't buy Edward Green, but I would consider Aldens, yes. Allen Edmonds, also. Filson. yes. Saddleback Leather, yes. Makr, yes. Levis, yes. And so on. So if you were to think of the SW&D items that the US does, and does well, what would these be? Thanks in advance, this is now a serious quest for me. I have a thread like this for the MC forum, so only need advice on SW&D items here.
