Furthering its mission to encourage American-made goods, Ball and Buck is opening the second annual American Field pop-up shop here in Boston this September. The 30+ brand showcase is open to the public for two-days only in the South End at 540 Harrison Avenue, from 10am to 6pm on September 28 and 29. Visitors can poke, prod, and purchase domestic fashion merchandise including Red Wing Shoes, Osmium menswear, Frank Clegg leather goods, Ellsworth & Ivey capes, New England Outerwear Company, and Paxton 1345 boxers. Expect to be outfitted from head-to-toe in brands spanning coast-to-coast, with a focus on New England-based manufacturers. Ball and Buck reminds that if we all spent just 5% more on US products, nearly one million jobs would be created stateside and the first step is to do just that—spend on some really standout gear. Each item at American Field has a story to tell, and watch that of the pop-up in last year's video above.
