From: Johnson, Vt.
Founded: 1842

What does "heritage" really mean? Some brands recreate their designs from the late '70s, and try to capture a piece of their early beginnings. Johnson Woolen Mills has been around since 1842—that's 171 years in the game. The company has produced clothes that Paul Bunyan could have worn. The brand's selection of mackinaw jackets and other woolen products look great on any guy, rural or urban, but if yours smells like sugar shack, it might be be a little more authentic.
