The sky today was nearly as dark as cast iron, a cold front blowing in from the plains. So it was the perfect occasion to hail out my Misty Harbor trench coat. I picked it up this summer, a bit of thrift store treasure, and it got its first serious workout today.
I know absolutely nothing about the company, save that they once were a fairly significant producer of outerwear in the United States. Frannie has a vintage Misty Harbor field coat, also American made.
As with many companies, Misty Harbor has gone the way of the dodo, although thrift stores are filled with reminders of its once proud history.
