Refrigiwear – est. 1954 — The Modern Way to Keep Warm
Myron Breakstone started RefrigiWear in 1954 with a vision to create a “modern way to keep warm” for workers that faced cold, demanding conditions. His experiences in Northern Italy during World War II enhanced his first-hand knowledge of working in cold temperatures. Back home, he witnessed how the cold affected the employees of his family’s dairy business. He knew there had to be a better way to protect workers in the cold.
Founded as the “Modern Way to Keep Warm,” RefrigiWear is still innovating with new styles and materials to this day.
