About Us

Blue Duck has been a staple of the New York City Fashion District for over 25 years.

Founded in 1989, our outerwear is the product Blue Duck CEO and Founder Barry Novick’s 40+ years in the fashion and fur industries. A Chicago native, Barry grew up in the infamously windy and cold conditions of the city and dedicated his life to perfecting the science of creating a warm coat with designer appeal.

Today, Blue Duck’ garments are available in some of the most well-known department stores up and down Fashion Avenue and across the country. Blue Duck grew to be the largest manufacturer and wholesaler of shearling outerwear by producing sensibly priced quality garments that look great and fit great.

Using that same philosophy, we’ve expanded our collections to include ready-to-wear fur vests, fur-trimmed jackets, and exclusive luxury outerwear.

Most of Blue Duck's coats and jackets are produced in our very own New York factories, allowing us to keep a close eye on every step of the manufacturing process. We put the same careful attention into every single garment we sell, even imported items.

Our one-of-a-kind pieces are inspired by Barry’s world travels. From sourcing quality furs and shearlings to implementing the influence of international fashion, you can be sure that each Blue Duck coat is the made from the best of what the world has to offer.

As we Barry likes to say,

“We do well by
making customers happy”

That’s been our motto for the last three decades, and it’ll be our motto for the next three.
