Reading About Tommy Hilfiger: So What Does ‘All-American’ Even Mean, Anyway?

In a profile of Tommy Hilfiger in August’s Harper’s Bazaar, Vera Wang says of her friend: “Tommy has an all-American design sensibility.” What exactly does “All-American” mean when referred to in fashion? Here, let us break it down for you.

1. White people

2. Blonde white people.

3. Blonde white people wearing red, white, and/or blue clothes (including denim).

4. Blonde white people wearing red, white, and/or blue clothes (including denim) with the occasional brown person thrown in for that extra touch of Benetton. If you are not sure it is all-American enough, add an American flag.

Hope that cleared things up.
