    Rothco is the foremost supplier of military, tactical, survival, and outdoor products. Founded in 1953, Rothco, a family-owned business in New York, has provided military clothing for over 60 years.

  • Starting with the Revolutionary War, the National Archives holds Federal military records, including historical, personal, and official correspondence regarding military uniforms and equipment designs.

    In 1953 in a small loft on Great Jones Street in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Milton Somberg began Rothco, then known as Morris Rothenberg & Sons. Over the years, Rothco has introduced numerous lines of clothing and product but at the root of each item is their military heritage, from their M-65 field jackets to their canvas bags. Even the folding camping shovel can be traced back to Rothco's military surplus roots.
