The story of Russell Outdoors Clothing is rooted deeply in the story of America. At the turn of the century in Alabama, a man called Benjamin Russell rallied to get a small town back on its feet after a devastating fire. That town and its football fields and grocery stores, baseball diamonds and hospitals became the birthplace of Russell Outdoors, Russell Athletics, and Russel Outdoors Wholesale.
The company began as Russell Manufacturing Company, a tiny factory with 10 sewing machines and eight knitters that produced their first knit shirt for women and children. Yet a passion for sports would soon come to define Benjamin Russell's brand. In the 1920's Russell's son Benny approached his father with an innovative new idea: to produce an all-cotton practice football jersey. The new jersey would provide a solution to the friction and scratchy wool material of traditional jerseys. The football jersey became the first ever sweatshirt, rolling out of the Russell Athletic mills in 1930. To meet the growing demand of outdoor and athletic wear, Russell Outdoors Wholesale began selling clothing in bulk.
Throughout the 1940s Russell Outdoors Wholesale provided the US military with t-shirts, undergarments, shirts, athletic garments, and outerwear that both held up on the battlefield and the homefront. By the 1960s the brand became synonymous with athletics, becoming the largest manufacturer of sports apparel and uniforms in the United States.
In the 1980s Russell became the official uniform of Little League Baseball and Softball, firmly cementing itself in American history. By the early 2000s and Russell's 100-year anniversary, the brand held its prominence in American sportswear manufacturing as well as celebrating the number of other functional, comfortable, and uniquely American apparel and textile brands that fall under its umbrella.
Russell Outdoors Wholesale falls into that grouping as a part of this company's great apparel traditions. Featuring clothing specifically designed for the outdoorsman, Russell Outdoors offers a number of easy wear, tactical pieces geared toward hunters, fishers, campers, climbers, hikers, and other explorers. Sweatshirts, pullovers, t-shirts, and other items are crafted from soft yet durable cotton jersey and cotton-poly blends, their air jet yarn making for a pill-resistant finish so that they stay fresh and clean looking wash after wash and adventure after adventure.
To blend in with your natural surroundings Russell outdoor wear comes in camouflage prints with tag-free labels and antique brass grommets and zippers to add a sense of organic flair. Pockets, ribbed knit cuffs and waistbands, and double needle sleeves and hem, add extra elements of comfort and durability to stand up to the elements of the great outdoors.
