Minnesotans are known for being pleasant, civil, even in the most heated of arguments. We like to mind our own business, but we sometimes share a biting sense of polite sarcasm. Throw a blizzard at us and we shrug it off. We can spot you mile away in a snowdrift without your Sorel™ boots and your Northface™ jacket, and we’ll politely invite you in for a bite of hotdish. While there is such a thing as Minnesota Nice, there’s no such thing as a quick goodbye – we stand outside in the frigid cold saying goodbye forever. This tunic-length sweater with it’s yoke of snowflakes will keep you toasty warm on all your winter escapades with friends.
