Setting the Bar For American Made
For decades, as the apparel industry moved overseas, the presence of American-made products on the market has dwindled immensely. Throughout the 1980s, nearly 75% of clothing sold in the US was made in the US. Recent numbers show that this amount has fallen to under 3%. Dean Wegner, a Army veteran and skilled entrepreneur, began Authentically American in 2017 to reverse this trend, all while giving back to those who’ve dedicated their lives to America.
His expertise in the apparel and packaged goods industries in combination with a passion for America provided Wegner the motivation and knowledge to create a brand setting the universal standard for premium American-made products. Not only is Authentically American setting the bar for Made-in-the-USA, it is creating jobs for hard working Americans.
The company’s belief in the American worker is the reason that everything Authentically American is made in the USA, with no exceptions, and 100% guaranteed. This facet of the business is largely tied to the vision Authentically American has for itself. They aim to be the next Nike, an iconic American brand, but proudly and passionately made in America.
Every piece is embroidered with the Authentically American logo, a vintage American flag, serving as a further reinforcement of the love and patriotism that goes into every garment.
Authentically American has built a loyal consumer base in the market, serving everyone from large Fortune 500 companies, to small organizations, and anywhere in between. The thread that unites them being their patriotism and support of American-made products.
Further supporting the brands mission, the brand is dedicated to giving back to the veterans and first responders that serve the nation. From its gross profits, 10% is donated to the Folded Flag Foundation and Reboot Alliance. The foundations both fund programs that help veterans and first responders heal from traumas endured during their service to America.
From its charitable mission to its support of the American people, Authentically American is exactly that. With the enormous support its already received, Authentically American will only continue to grow and make an impact in the US.
