Made in U.S.A.: Pointer Brand Barn Coat

Don't say you can't find jackets made in the U.S.A. True, you're not likely to find any at the mall, but just look to work wear and you can find plenty of dandy coats and jackets.

Now that there's a nip in the air here in Nashville, the first thing I've pulled out to wear on the chilly mornings is my Pointer Brand barn coat. The barn coat is just the thing for throwing on to go fetch the paper from the driveway, to wear in the cold car on the way to work, or... to go milk the cows in the barn.

The barn coat has got a nice soft lining and collar and plenty of space if you're also wearing a sweater or maybe a bullet proof vest. But the most remarkable thing you'll notice about it is the weight. It's heavy. They don't scrimp on material when they make this coat, and you just know it's going to last for years and years.

The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have pockets you can really put your hands in to keep them warm, though it's got plenty of cargo pockets. But that's not enough of a negative that you won't find me wearing this jacket most every day this winter. And if you want different pockets, or you don't want denim like mine, there are several other styles to choose from. Just click here to see their selection.

Pointer Brand, by the way, is not only  made in the U.S.A. but better yet is made right here in Tennessee. It's a brand of the L.C. King Company in Bristol which has literally been around a hundred years and is still going strong. Their web site is also a winner. And you'll be a winner too if you support made in the U.S.A. by buying a jacket from them this winter!
