There has been a big focus on American clothing brands and products made in America—enter John Elliott. The San Francisco-based designer has a ready-to-wear collection that includes essentials every guy needs like T-shirts and knits, but his standout offering is his denim. There are four simple styles to choose from, raw to washed, and all of them are made from Japanese denim. Most importantly, the jeans are cut to fit real guys. At under $300, that's a lot of bang for your buck.
