Where the runway meets the street

Before the current rash of “Made in the USA” newbies, Bill Thomas resolved to celebrate American manufacture and build himself a pair of khakis that worked for him. From simple beginnings, Thomas has grown his empire and kept his headquarters firmly planted in Reading, PA. This year the company turned 20. The celebrate, Thomas turns to a true classic and commemorates the USO.

Here’s what they have to say at Bills – “Fall 2010 marks our 20th year in business, a business founded on the tangible qualities and symbolic values found in a single pair of original WWII khakis. To commemorate this milestone, we introduce our 20th Anniversary khaki. Cut from genuine American-made Cramerton Twill, this cloth was the “twill of record” issued by the U.S. military during WWII. In conjunction with the introduction of this product, Bills Khakis honors generations of men, women and their families who have so bravely served and sacrificed for our country by supporting the USO. We thank our customers for sharing in this commitment.”

The trouser will be available from select retailers.

Thanks to Acquire for the heads up.
