The Trophy REDUX Hoodie

 Let’s face it: No Colorado winter wardrobe is complete without items you can layer. Those who love cold-weather clothing know that cold weather in Colorado can change from moment to moment. Help them prepare not only to dress warmly and smartly, but to look good while doing it, with The Trophy REDUX Hoodie, the perfect premium Colorado apparel item to wear on its own or layered under a hoodie or winter coat.  Just as soft as you'd expect from a piece of 1876 gear, this transitional piece features our iconic Colorado local Trophy tee shirt design, and a classic pattern made from the components of The Trophy in low contrast. Cool, classy, comfy, classic. The best part? The Trophy REDUX hoodie never goes out of style and is perfect for every season, so your loved one can wear it all year long.

The Bluebird Beanie

 The beanie is a staple for anyone who loves cold-weather Colorado apparel. Naturally, we had to take it to the next level and create one of the most luxurious, stylish, and elevated beanies in existence. Meet The Bluebird Beanie, our newest foray into the land of warm and cozy. It’s a single layer for ultimate comfort, and features a little blue Colorado C and a fuzzy soft faux-fir pom that almost sparkles in the sunlight. Did we mention that this beanie took even our standards for softness and blew them away? It’s soft. Really really soft. AND, it can even fit in your family member or friend’s stocking for the ultimate Christmas morning surprise.

1876 Apparel Scarves

For that special someone seeking the Colorado apparel item that goes with everything, our 1876 Apparel Scarves - The Telluride and The Sterling - are just the ticket. We’ve taken the classic winter scarf and given it an upgrade in two unique styles sure to please even the most picky dresser. Down to the details, these Colorado Cold Weather Scarves are something truly special, allowing the wearer to both express themself and protect themself from those Colorado mountain winds.  

 For those as obsessed with premium softness as we are, the Telluride Scarf is the perfect Christmas gift. After all, it’s the definitive scarf for The State of Exploration, embodying everything that makes our Lodgepole line what it is: confident, luxurious, and ultra-stylish. It features a remarkable fabric made from acrylic fibers that feels nearly indistinguishable from genuine cashmere. We spent months developing a fully-custom check pattern and color palette perfect for matching any wardrobe. It’s the perfect marriage of style and comfort - and will last for many holiday seasons to come. 

 For those seeking cold-weather clothing that straddles the line between utility and style, the Sterling Scarf is the one. It features a soft but rugged fabric, with the appointed and subtle Lodgepole design almost daring you to look closer. It’s perfect for the person on your list who’s harder to shop for; the one who wants to say something out loud, without screaming.
