We Love: Fleurette Outerwear

Brr! It has been COLD across America this week and that has me thinking about outerwear. One of my favorite luxury USA made outerwear brands is Fleurette, available at Nordstrom and if you’re very lucky… you may also score one at Nordstrom Rack.

Fleurette designs and manufactures their luxury coats in New York, NY. They have been an American company for over 50 years! Each one of their coats passes through up to 70 hands (designers, pattern-makers, seamstresses, tailors and more!) before leaving the factory floor, ensuring a high quality product.

Their designs are timeless and classic, and they use high quality materials such as virgin wool, cashmere, alpaca and more. I have tried on a few and they are all SO flattering!

We Love: SmartWool Socks

SmartWool Socks We Love American Made Blog

I think one of the most taken for granted clothing items has to be socks. I never really put too much thought into them, but occasionally I live to regret it when they slip off my heel, bunch up in my shoes or slide down my legs.

I’ve never had that problem with my SmartWool socks though. I am an avid skiier and snowboarder and I exclusively wear SmartWool socks when I ski and snowboard. I find that they are a nice thickness to keep my feet warm and toasty, but not sweaty because they wick away the moisture. They also provide a little bit of protection from the hard boot.

Most SmartWool socks are knitted right here in America — in Tennessee and North Carolina. A sock takes about 2-6 minutes to knit on the loom, then each sock is hand inspected, paired and then packaged.  Up to a dozen people may work on each sock!

Socks for Every Occasion and Sport

I also love that there are different SmartWool socks for different occasions. On Nordstrom, you’ll find that there are tights, no show casual socks and dress socks. You’ll also find socks especially made for skiing, hiking, running or other sports. There is also a wide selection for kids.
