Telling the story of American manufacturing, 

one garment at a time.

It starts with a question.
How can we do the best for the people around us?



There's dignity in manufacturing.

You see it in the people and the towns that grew around factories: the pride behind building something with your hands. Their work becomes a skilled career, something refined through their years of toil and effective practice.

We seek to work with people who are in our industry because it is their passion – people who pursue perfection in their craft. To build alongside them has always been our mission.


We are a mission-driven brand.

“American Trench is a Philadelphia-based fashion brand founded to bring forward the exceptional manufacturing that exists in the United States.”

This is both our brand bio and our mission statement. It describes who we are, what we do, and why we exist.

The trench coat was the initial muse – but as our exposure to the manufacturing supply chain expanded, so did our vision.

What else could we make? Who else could we impact?

We haven't found all the answers. We're still seeking.


The materials matter.

Swiss Ventile, cut and sewn in New Jersey.

USA-grown combed cotton, knit in North Carolina.

Scottish cashmere, knit in in Texas.

Italian merino wool, knit in New York.
