What do you think of when you picture the image of cool Americana? Many different pieces of clothing throughout history have contributed to the Americana style, which can be defined as "things associated with the culture and history of America, especially the United States." When people think of the traditional or typical Americana style, there are often specific pieces and brands that come to mind.
Some of these fashion staples and brands include Levi's 501 jeans, the Oxford shirt by Ralph Lauren, Converse sneakers (especially the All-Star Chuck Taylor High Tops), Ray-Bans, the traditional white t-shirt by Hanes, duck boots by L.L. Bean, Levi's trucker jacket, and the Alpha Industries MA-1 Bomber jacket. There are other popular leather jacket types, of course, although that list does seem pretty all-inclusive, there is one piece missing that virtually defines the Americana style: the Schott Perfecto leather jacket, otherwise known as the Double Rider.
