Fall is for Flannel plain and simple. A staple for any true outdoorsman this warm checkered pattern fabric, which has been around since the 17th Century has become a must-have for everyone. From the runway to the lumber yard, flannels simplistic nature is what makes it so versatile and it can be worn by both men & women. And if you're Rothco it can be updated into a variety of colors and styles

For over a decade, Rothco has been carrying a great line of buffalo plaid style flannel shirts, these rugged yet comfortable shirts feature 100% cotton material with button front and 2 front flap pockets. Over the past few years, we've expanded on that line by adding new colors (over 10 if you are counting!) like Grey and Orange and  even Camo Patterns.  We also carry both Sherpa-Lined and Fleeced-Lined Flannel Shirts, to keep you extra warm during those cold winter days. 

In addition to those great flannel shirts, this year Rothco has also added a Women's Style Flannel Shirt. Made from 100% cotton fabric, this shirt has been designed with a tapered cut for a more feminine style and features a button front, back yoke and 2 stitched open top pockets.

The T-Shirt Everyone Is Buzzing About

Yesterday all those "flashing lights" were on Kayne West's New York Fashion Week Show and it turns out the only way you could get into the show was with Rothco's Long Sleeve Camo Tee Shirt, the shirt which was printed with the "Yeezy" logo and text could be seen sitting front row on celebrities like Courtney Love and Jaden Smith. 

This isn't the first time Mr. West's was inspired by the military look and judging from his new collection it won't be the last. 

The camo invite was featured in Complex Mag, 4 Pins and several other streetwear blogs. But you can find the orginal t-shirt at Rothco.com

This Week in History: At Wars End

The first week in September is a seemingly popular week to end wars as the signing of the Treaty of Paris (1783) which marked the end of the Revolutionary War occurred on September the 3rd and on September the 2nd, 1945 the Japanese formally surrendered aboard the USS Missouri marking the end of WWII. We have a love for all things history, especially when it pertains to the military so here are a few things you might not have known about the two events.

Benjamin West's Unfinished Painting
Treaty of Paris (1783):
  1. At the start of negotiates between the United States and Great Britain, 2 of the representatives chosen by the U.S. weren’t able to participate in the negotiations; Thomas Jefferson hadn’t left the U.S. early enough and Henry Laurens was being held prisoner in the Tower of London until the wars end.
  2. Benjamin Franklin initially wanted the Province of Quebec to be part of the United States in the hopes that the U.S. would encompass all of North America but that proposal was promptly dismissed.
  3. Benjamin West was tasked with painting the delegates present during the Treaty of Paris but the British delegation refused to sit for the painting and so it was never completed, picturing only the American delegation.
V-J Day:
  1. The formal surrender from the Japanese, marked as V-J Day, was the second V-Day, or Victory Day, of the war. V-E Day, marking the Allies victory in Europe was on May the 8th of that year.
  2. V-J Day was actually celebrated twice, on August 15th when Japan surrendered to the United Nations and on September 2nd when they formally surrendered. The famous image of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square occurred on the first V-J Day.
  3. WWII actually started the same week it officially ended; it began September 1st, 1939 and ended 6 years and 1 day later.
