American Trench was established during the 2008 financial crisis with a desire to make USA made, luxury trench coats involving as many Americans as possible. Today's centerpiece trench coat is made in New Jersey by an Argentine family with deep Italian roots. The family-owned factory manufactures coats by sewing waterproof Ventile fabric, made from cotton that is grown and spun in the United States and sent to the UK to be woven into fabric. The coat also includes a cotton plaid lining fabric that originates from North Carolina, and a wool warmer whose cloth is woven in Connecticut. The company represents all they love about America: people from different places with different perspectives coming together to make something that you can't find anywhere else.
