We are huge fans of Freed winter coats. Not only are they made in Winnipeg, but they are also one of the few garment companies that still operate as a family business. Kudos to staying local!

    In Dec I bought a Canadian red jacket from Walmart in Thunder Bay,Ontario. This jacket is shedding feathers like it is molting.Also the three seams on the back are separating. It looks like the sewing was not wide enough to catch all the material. I did not keep the receipt as I didn’t think I would need it. I love the coat but it’s falling Apart.
