Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin: Chippewa Woolen Mill was founded in 1882 for the purpose of supplying men that worked in the lumber trade with warm and dependable clothing; they were especially revered for their britches, jumpers, mackinaws and vests. With the popularity of synthetics many woolen mills across the country became irrelevant, and in 1962 Chippewa Woolen Mill closed its doors and went through an unrecoverable bankruptcy. These fabulous wool trousers were meant to fight the fiercest cold and the trademark red and black buffalo plaid is easily recognizable by collectors today.
