Classsic Polartec North Shore Jacket
The idea behind HeadButler.com is that just about every movie, book or music CD ever released is available on the Web.
Once in a great while, I run into products I think more people ought to know about --- like Wintergreen Northern Wear, which specializes in cold-weather clothing that looks if it had been designed by Jil Sander.
In January, the average high temperature in Ely, Minnesota --- headquarters for Wintergreen Northern Wear --- is 5 degrees.
If keeping warm in cold weather matters to you, consider the North Shore Jacket for women. It looks like velour, but it’s made of Expedition weight 12.2 oz. Classic Polartec® 300 and has a plush fleece lining. It comes in five colors --- peony, teal, honey gold, navy and loden --- with contrasting cuffs and mock-turtle collar. Price: $155.

Wintergreen also has some knee-length coats in this style that we thought are better suited to winter walks on Madison Avenue, so we bought one. It's called a North Shore Coat, and it's a winner in mocha, with a tan collar and cuffs. This coat delivers warmth and style for the headshakingly low price of $198. If knee-length is for you, you might write Wintergreen at http://www.wintergreennorthernwear.com/Contact-Us/General-Contact.html and ask if they still have any.
Wintergreen's clothes are made only in America --- in fact, only in Ely, Minnesota (population: 4,000).
