mission at Patriot 1350 is to provide USA-made clothing and apparel
with American patriotic themes. America is an exceptional nation, born
from the Revolutionary ideal that we are “endowed by our Creator
with certain inalienable rights.” At Patriot 1350, we want to
honor America’s exceptionalism and rich history with our unique,
creative one-of-a-kind designs. We sell only clothing and apparel made
in the USA. We got our inspiration from our first president, George
Washington, who was described in the book “Alexander Hamilton”
by Ron Chernow just prior to his taking the oath of office as:
“Resplendent with a ceremonial sword at his side, he also wore
a plain brown suit of American broadcloth woven at a mill in Hartford.
A special message for Hamilton’s future was encoded in this outfit:
that America should encourage manufactures, especially textiles, an
industry dominated by Great Britain. Washington hoped it would soon
“be unfashionable for a gentleman to appear” in any dress
that was not of American origin. From “Alexander Hamilton”
by Ron Chernow, The Penguin Press, 2004, page 277, quoting “Gotham:
A History of New York City to 1898,” Edwin G. Burrows and Mike
Wallace, Oxford University Press, 1999, page 297.
If American-made apparel was important to George Washington, it’s
important to us and hopefully important to you.
