When winter hits, you want outdoor gear that would keep you warm when out chopping firewood, shooting game, or stuffing bodies into a woodchipper -- but you don't actually want to look like you've been chopping firewood, or shooting game. For classed up woodsiness, try Nobis.
Lovingly made in the only place with crappier winters than Chicago (oh, Canada), Nobis' tastefully rugged fall line keeps you toasty with touches like lambswool, thermal fleece hat underbands, duck down linings, waterproof cotton, breathable corduroy shells, and oversized removable hoods lined with coyote fur (Nobis swears the coyote died in an unfortunate ACME Rocket Skate incident). Headgear standouts include the hand-woven floppy beanie "Hadley"; the chunky, military-styled "Almeus" w/ ear flaps and two diagonal stripes across the forehead; and a tight-fitting, ear-covering job w/ contrasting color squares called "Teabag", which boasts a singular pom on top (formal name: the John Kruk Teabag). Nobis has also just dived into outerwear, with the trench-styled "Cartel" bomber jacket w/ fleece-lined hand-warming pockets, the "Barry" parka (w/ zip-out lining, corduroy elbow patches, and military-styled pouches), and a ribbed vest w/ vintage blanket plaid design on the shoulders, called the "Ricky Bobby", so you know it's classy as hell.
Nobis is also doing up scarves in the same materials and colors as its hats -- perfect for when you really don't want to look like you've been chopping wood or shooting game.
