Alpacas of Montana Extra Cushion Boot Socks ($30)
Proof that workwear can be cozy, these Alpacas, made with fleece from American farms, blend in acrylic for additional shape retention—crucial for spending long hours on your feet.
Yooper Chook Beanie ($24)
Designed in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, this beanie has a clever detail: a loop of fleece that folds down to cover your face and chin in foul weather.
Hestra Skullman Gloves ($75)
Goat leather offers protection, while a stiff cuff makes the Skullmans easy to pull on. Wear them alone or with liners when the temperature drops.
Dickies Sherpa Lined Fleece Hoodie ($50)
How do you make a cotton-poly hoodie better? Add a plush lining for warmth that rivals a puffy’s. Get two, lest your significant other “borrows” yours forever.
RefrigiWear Extreme Softshell Overalls ($204)
RefrigiWear’s bibs are designed for people who work in industrial freezers, so they’re among the toughest on the market. They feature breathable, water-repellent outer fabric and a silver lining that reflects heat.
Bogs Workman Boots ($150)
Neoprene boots are good in slush and cold, but they tend to break down at the toe. The Workman is seamless over the foot, preventing cracking and making it lighter than the competition.
Dovetail Workwear Britt Utility Cosy Pants ($119)
Dovetail’s work pants are designed for women, with details usually reserved for the guys, like deep pockets and reinforced knees. Stretchy double-sided fleeced denim makes the Britt as comfy as it is burly.
Filson C.C.F. Utility Jacket ($150)
The canvas bomber is a workwear staple. Filson’s features light, quilted insulation and big pockets.
