New Wool Top Coat for Men: Made in USA

As much as we love rugged canvas coats and leather bomber jackets, they don’t quite cut it if you’re heading to a high-level business meeting. That’s when a classic top coat comes in handy.

Disclosure: We’ll get a small commission if you buy through the links in this post: Please do!The newest Sewn-in-America offering we’ve seen is the Hickey Freeman Classic Fit Wool & Cashmere Top Coat. Made from imported 95% wool, 5% cashmere, it features hidden front-buttons, and one-button cuffs.

Hickey Freeman is a true American heritage brand. It was named for Jeremiah Hickey and Jake Freeman, who founded the company in 1899.
