The thing about Chicago winters is it takes one to know one.

Because man doesn’t know cold until he’s confronted by a car not his own in a spot clearly marked Dibs.

Stand down? Never. And for that, he’ll want the Northwoods Down Parka, new from the hometown heroes at Stock Manufacturing Co. Y’know, the guys who make handsome menswear right here in Chicago.

Designed in collaboration with Crescent Down Works, this parka’s ready for whatever wintry shade comes your way, and built so it won’t weigh you down. And if there’s any other brand you’d want on the tag of your winter jacket, it’s Crescent Down Works. They’ve been doing it right since 1974.

Aside from function, this puppy is stylishly simple. Just a weather-resistant shell from Japan filled with goose down lining, with enough pockets to hold hat, scarves, gloves and then some.

Fact is, it’s a jacket you can rock to work and on the weekends, whether you’re heading out for drinks or shoveling the walkway.

If you can find a better jacket for Chicago, be sure to let us know.
