Uncle Sam Costumes

Uncle Sam's suit and white hair makes him one of the most recognizable icons in American history next to the Statue of Liberty. As the personification of the United States, Uncle Sam was the face of patriotism on US Army recruitment posters during World War II. His red, white and blue stars and stripes ensemble combined with his white hair and beard, commanding, "I Want You" was symbolic of the father of our nation calling to you duty. He is still a strong symbol of American culture today. Uncle Sam costumes sell best during certain times of the year. One is tax season when the costume is worn by men to advertise tax preparation companies and flag in customers. The others are during the patriotic holidays Memorial Day and 4th of July where it is common to see someone in an Uncle Sam outfit marching as the Grand Marshal in the parade.
