The Red, White & Blue Gear You Need To Have The Most Patriotic July 4th Ever

The Red, White & Blue Gear You Need To Have The Most Patriotic July 4th Ever:

July 4th is always a fun time. BBQs, fireworks, what’s not to like? But this year, with events like Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage and the U.S. national team advancing to the semifinals of the Women’s World Cup, there’s even more reason to feel patriotic.

We found the best red, white, and blue men’s styles to help you fly the stars and stripes with pride. Unless your name is Sam and you are someone’s uncle, we do not recommend combining all of this clothing into one outfit. But don’t worry if you don’t get a chance to wear all of these items this holiday weekend. These are styles that will still look good long after the fireworks finale.

HUF USA COACHES JACKET
$70, hufworldwide.com
Coaches always like to say you play for the name on the front of the uniform, not the back. Well, this coaches jacket from Huf flips the script on that with a bold “U.S.A.” print on the back.

DANIEL WELLINGTON CLASSIC CAMBRIDGE WATCH

They’re loud and they’re proud. Cole Haan created a special edition of its uber-comfortable ZeroGrand Oxfords with a stars and stripes-themed upper of denim and ripstop nylon.

NIKE U.S. MNT JERSEY
$90, nike.com
With recent wins over the Netherlands and Germany, things are looking for good for the U.S. men’s soccer team this summer. Perhaps part of the success can be attributed to the squad’s jerseys with their blue gradient pattern. Even if you have no idea who Clint Dempsey is, you’ll appreciate the style of this jersey and the moisture wicking properties of the Dri-Fit material on a hot summer day.

KATIN AMERICAN PRIDE BOARDSHORTS
$59, urbanoutfitters.com
Katin started out making canvas boat covers in the 1950s, but surfers discovered that the durability of Katin’s canvas also made for great boardshorts. The brand has continued to churn out quality shorts ever since, like this pair with two hand pockets and a rear patch pocket for all your beach essentials.

STANCE QUEENS SOCKS
$24, stance.com
Red, white, and blue clothes don’t have to be over the top. These socks from Stance feature elegant blue and red stitching for a clean, classic look. The 200 needle count construction prevents the socks from pilling and keeps them looking polished.

KNOCKAROUND PREMIUM SUNGLASSES
$14, knockaround.com
These shades from Knockaround pull off the red, white, and blue theme in a clever way. The lens frames are red, then one temple is blue and the other is white. And at $14, you won’t be too heartbroken if the cute girl who asks to try them on ends up making off with them.
