Newcomers to the New England scene, The New England Outerwear Co. has studied what makes the region so great to improve on the designs that any true Yankee wore throughout the years. The Massachusetts-based brand makes all products out of the best materials the U.S. has to offer: Horween leather and Vibram soles. Each pair of footwear is made in Maine—America's footwear hub. The shoes are built to be permanent parts of your wardrobe; pairs that grow with you as time moves on. The brand also offers great takes on crepe-soled boat shoes and has started offer belts and wallets. Expect a full range of outerwear to be available by fall/winter 2013.
