With the Fourth of July right around the corner, consulting firm Brand Keys conducted a survey asking consumers to rate the patriotism of 50 iconic American brands. Although it wasn’t strictly fashion-based, several fashion brands did make the cut—some less obvious than others. See below for the full list of fashion and fashion-relevant brands along with their ranking:
4. Ralph Lauren
14. Coach and New Balance
18. L.L.Bean and Facebook
As Footwear News pointed out, American pride is crucial to some of these brands, like Ralph Lauren and Levi’s, but for others, such as Coach or New Balance, the patriotic associations are less obvious. That being said, both brands are known for classic items that are most associated with America.
