Combining inspirations from the colorful streets of Brooklyn and memories of whimsical days playing alongside his childhood friend Appaman (a corduroy ape) while growing up in Norway, Appaman founder Harald Husum puts great thought into the details of his ever-changing line of modern children’s wear. Appaman’s boy’s Bowery Coat is no exception to the impeccable detail and craftsmanship of his clothing line.
With a rich polyester/wool-blended outer layer and an inner lining of silky, quilted padding, stuffed with polyester filling; this military-style coat will keep you little man warm and toasty on cold winter outings. The Bowery Coat has a fitted, fine-tailored look, a raisable collar to protect against windchill (or just to make your stylish little dude look even cooler) and boasts the Appaman logo, patched onto the shoulder. You can choose from two shades: Navy Blue or Vintage Black, and it comes is sizes 2T-14.
While the Bowery wouldn’t be ideal for hours of snowman and igloo building, it will certainly serve as the perfect coat to dress up or down for your little man’s everyday outerwear needs.
Top off your little man’s look with the vintage-black, soft-knitted floppy Tilly Hat. This hat will compliment the Bowery Coat just so with an extra added element of style – just like the cherry on top of the icing. (And it will also keep his little ears warm, because that’s important too.)
If the Bowery Coat doesn’t float your boat (we aren’t entirely sure that’s even possible), Appaman has a variety of equally awesome styles for boys, girls and minis.

Whether your child will be romping in the snow at the playground, or hitting the slopes, Patagonia is your one stop shop for winter apparel needs. The Baby Nano Puff Jacket is the lightweight, yet super warm jacket that is perfect for your child this winter. Patagonia is famous for their winter line, and its obvious why there is such a high expectation with the brand and quality.
“Patagonia uses PrimaLoft insulation inside insulated garments for its warmth, compressibility, and soft comfort. While the human body uses energy to stay warm, PrimaLoft insulation uses a patented microfiber structure to help the body retain warmth and conserve energy.”
The proprietary ultra-fine fibers of PrimaLoft insulation form a tight collection of air pockets that trap heat from your body and keep the cold out, providing an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio. PrimaLoft ultra-fine fibers were developed to be water resistant so your insulation stays drier, keeping your kiddo toasty in any winter condition.
The durable water resistant fabric repels rain and snow, and stays drier, longer. The Baby Nano Puff Jacket is not heavy and restrictive, and is perfect for everyday use, or layer it with a fleece for a fun afternoon of playing in the snow.
The Baby Down Sweater Jacket is insulated with traceable 600-fill-power duck down. With a wind proof, 100% polyester shell and durable water repellant finish, your child will be kept safe from most of the unpleasant elements of winter. The elastic along the back hem keeps the cold out and the 2 zippered hand pockets along with spandex binding at the ends of the sleeves is sure to keep little hands toasty warm. The lightweight, compressible design easily allows added layers on the coldest of days.
A full length zipper covers the wind flap and ends in a zipper garage which prevents irritation to your child’s chin. The pocket zipper pulls have reflective material, making your child more visible when playing outside on those overcast winter days. The Baby Down Sweater Jacket will allow unlimited hours of outdoor play while keeping your little one cozy and warm!

When it comes to frigid winter temps you can never be too careful in making sure your little ones are cozy and warm when out in the elements. Those little fingers and toes can freeze fast! This is especially true for the tiniest of tots – those babies and toddlers. When it comes to protecting their extremities with ease and cozy comfort, Stonz should be your go-to brand.
Stonz’ signature product, their Booties, are an ingenious shoe design – unlike anything we’ve ever seen! These soft soled tall booties for ages 0-3 slip easily over clothing, (even another pair of shoes if you size up!), protecting little toes and exposed ankles from moisture and chilly air. Made from a water resistant nylon upper with fleece lining and soft, rubberized soles, Stonz Booties are extremely light weight and soft – perfect for developing feet! The extra wide opening along with two adjustable toggles allow you to easily slip these on and adjust the fit as your child grows. Great for wear in fall, winter (add the Sherpa Fleece Linerzfor additional warmth), and spring!
To go along with the Booties, Stonz also makes Mitz – the ultimate solution for finger warmth and protection. Mitz are like booties for your little one’s hands, featuring an “over the arm” design with toggles for a snug fit to keep cold air and moisture out. Featuring 5 layers of warmth and protection, Mitz are the perfect mittens for ages 0-7.
After finding such success in their Booties, Stonz recently launched a line of hardcore winter boots for older children. Stonz Bootz are the lightest, yet most rugged, winter boots we’ve ever felt! These things will keep your kiddo’s tootsies warm down to temps of -58 degrees F (isn’t that just miserable to imagine!?). With a wide opening, Stonz Bootz are easy to slip on and feature three points of tightening for the perfect fit and ultimate protection. Available in sizes for toddlers through age 14.
