When it’s cold and yucky out, nothing beats one of those uber-insulating poofy down jackets. So what if you look like a jumbo marshmallow and walk like the Michelin Man, right? Wrong, ladies! We just got some wonderful new winter coats in from Spiewak, and one of our favorites is the most flattering and shapely poofy down number we’ve ever seen. It looks great on everyone, and you’re gonna love the hood!
Spiewak has been around pretty much since the dawn of time, but if you’ve never heard of them, don’t be surprised. Since the company was founded in 1904 by a Polish immigrant, it has mostly been making industrial and military wear—and I mean real military wear (not the derivative designer stuff), as in, guys were going into battle in WWI and WWII in these clothes. The company began in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and that’s where they still are today. It only took 100 years, but the rest of the neighborhood finally caught up to Spiewak’s coolness! Their line of street wear has the same enduring quality with a decidedly urban edge, and no, they don’t hold back on the military influence. Phew!
We’ll have a few on hand with us at the Robert Leonard Salon’s Holiday Shopping event this Saturday (along with lots of other goodies), so it’s a great opportunity to try one on at 15 percent off.
Hope to see you there!
