Gerry Down Gloves

Gerry Down Gloves - Mittens

Great pair of vintage Gerry down filled mittens. Nylon shell, Gerry’s  down filling gives you the “warmth without the weight”. Full leather palm.  Nice elastic cuff.  Tag on the bottom of each palm reads: 100% Nylon Small.

The mittens may have been sold as part of a cold weather under garment set that included down filled bottoms, top and slippers.

Holubar Down Vest

Vintage Holubar Down Vest

This is a great vest from my personal favorite vintage Colorado brand. The cut and quality of Holubar’s designs shines through making for a visual nice, yet very functional piece. The tall collar can be laid flat or buttoned all the way up to keep the neck warm. The front pockets are side and top entry with a down layer on the outer to keep hands warm.

Like Gerry, Holubar is another outdoor gear pioneer founded in Colorado.  The company was a leader and innovator in outdoor gear through out the 50s,60s &70s before being bought, sold and put out of business. Recently the label has resurfaced in Italy making outerwear that pays homage to the original brand with a bit more flare for fashion.
