Many people who are interested in American culture and history have been talking about these topics for a long time.  However, Americana is different in that it will bring these elements together with all the items of clothing that originated in the States to celebrate the US’s unique contribution to modern style.  At the Americana blog, we will discuss the world’s favorite and iconic items of American clothing, their origins, interesting facts, what meanings they’ve taken on in society and how they are part of the culture of America and the world.
