Barry Novick, the founder and CEO has spent his entire career (more than 40 years) creating and manufacturing luxury furs and outerwear.

Blue Duck has become one of the largest manufacturers and wholesalers by producing and selling garments that look and fit great, at sensible prices. A majority of Blue Duck's coats and jackets are produced in their own New York workrooms, allowing them to pay close attention to every step of the manufacturing process. The same careful attention goes into every single garment they sell, even imported items.

ABOUT SHEARLING

Big collars & turn backcuffs

Value

Shearlings are a very good value based on their practicality and longevity.

Light & Slim

Shearlings have really slimmed down. Today’s coats are soft and sleek. No one wants to bear a burden, so these coats are ultra-light as well.

Different types of Shearling

Sheepskin is the hide of a sheep or lamb. One side is the hide, the other is the fur or the wool as it is called in the industry. Basically, you are wearing the hide of a sheep inside out. It is this combination of hide and the soft wool against your body that provides the amazing warmth. Shearlings come in an incredible variety of texture, thickness and quality. Shearling can be soft or course, have long hair or short, can be light and airy or thick and dense. But the absolute best shearlings originate in Spain and Italy, from the Merino and Toscana sheep. A new line of Micro-Shear Shearling™, introduced by Blue Duck, is among the lightest and warmest variety available in the industry. These textures lend themselves to a variety of styles, from week-end casual to city chic.

The art of shopping

Even a novice can easily recognize a fine quality garment with a few easy tips. It is important to look for uniformity of color and texture. A single shearling coat is made from between 7 and 18 individual skins. Always look for evenly matched quality throughout the garment. The outside should be smooth and uniform and the wool or fur on the inside should be dense, silky and smooth. As with any garment, you should make sure that the shearling fits well and that the material does not sag or droop. Above all, use your judgment and good taste: if it looks good, it probably is.

How to care

When not worn, shearling garments should be stored in a cool dry place. Hang on a wide shoulders do not stretch out. Button the garment so that the fit is not distorted during storage. If you feel the need to cover the garment, a cloth bag is preferable. A plastic bag could eventually dry out the garment. Furrier storage is helpful, but not necessary. An occasional brushing with a good suede brush helps keep garments clean and fresh looking.
