Work Outdoors?....Keep Warm This Winter!

Tuesday, January 16, 2018 4:14:31 PM America/New_York

Now that the cold weather has appeared in Central, New York and will be staying for the unforeseeable future, it's even more important to be prepared.

For those who spend a majority of their workday out in the elements, it's even more urgent to dress appropriately to avoid hypothermia. Hypothermia is a condition where your body cools faster than it can heat back up. The scariest part about hypothermia is that it can take place over a gradual period of time and unless you know what to look for; it can be deadly.

 At Herb's we have the latest insulated outdoor workwear and boots to keep you up-to-code and out of the cold. We carry a variety of workwear brands such as Carhartt, Carolina, Caterpillar, Wrangler, Dickies, Avenger, Rocky, Wolverine, and Timberland just to name a few.

Along with workwear, we carry a wide assortment of thermals for men and women for extra warmth and protection from brands like Indera, Coldpruf, and Terramar. 

From flannel-lined jeans to blanket-lined jackets, hand warmers to head warmers Herb Philipson's has the gear to keep you safe from the elements and warm until Spring.

Patagonia Fleece

Thursday, November 9, 2017 1:53:01 PM America/New_York

One of the newer brands featured at "Herb’s" this Fall is Patagonia. Although we’ve been carrying Patagonia for a few years, in Fall 2017 we broadened our selection of styles and rolled out apparel into all of our nine stores and our website.

The appeal of the brand spans generations. Some of us remember Patagonia from the 1970’s when it first made noise in the outdoor world. But millennials have re-discovered the brand and are becoming avid supporters of the brand and its message.

That message includes supporting Fair Trade practices. Most of the products we carry, such as the Better Sweater and the Snap-T, are Fair Trade Certified sewing. Patagonia also takes great care to source materials and to use processes that are minimally harmful to our environment. They also donate a minimum of 1% of their sales to environmental causes. Over the years this has generated over $90 million in donations!

All that’s important, right, but how’s the product?! Is the apparel attractive? Is it comfortable? Does it wear well? The answers are yes; yes; and yes! Patagonia offers classic, well-constructed apparel that’s perfect for outdoor life in Central New York. The company also offers an Ironclad Guarantee that if you are not satisfied with any Patagonia product, or if the product does not perform to your satisfaction, you may return it to Patagonia for repair, replacement or refund.

So, come on it to Herb’s and try on a Patagonia Better Sweater; a Snap-T; a Retro-X jacket or vest; or other fun fall pieces. We think you’ll be pleased.

Welcome to the "Herb’s" family, Patagonia!

Men Wearing Spandex?

Monday, August 14, 2017 10:53:00 AM America/New_York

News bulletin:  Men are just discovering what women found out a number of years ago--that spandex fibers added to everyday apparel makes clothes REALLY comfortable.  Lots of women’s clothes contain spandex in varying degrees from 2% to 20% of the fiber content.  The 2% just gives you room to breathe; the 20% means you’re wearing tights.

Not too many men wear tights—at least not outside the gym.  But they have begun to accept having the 2% or 3% of stretch fiber providing comfort to their favorite jeans or casual pants.  We’re definitely seeing more sales in these items than we did a couple of years ago; and our sales staff is telling us that men are either asking for stretch or are willing to listen to us explain its benefits.

Our favorite brands, like Levi, Lee--and even that Rugged Guy’s brand, Wrangler!--have added stretch to their basic styles.  We now carry jeans and casual pants containing minimal stretch from all three of these vendors.  Look for:

-- Advanced Comfort by Wrangler

-- Levi’s Dockers Signature Khaki

-- Extreme Motion or Extreme Comfort by Lee

Lee’s Extreme Motion or Extreme Comfort also contains a stretch waistband.  Now, this isn’t your grandfather’s elastic waist—this is a high-tech advanced waistband that comes out of the active apparel market. It’s about taking that comfort you feel in your gym clothes and bringing it into your everyday wardrobe.  

There IS one caveat about spandex—the fibers break down a bit earlier in the wear cycle than traditional cotton fibers.  And they don’t love clothes dryer heat.  But if you just cut back on drying those jeans on high heat for a full cycle, you should have many years of wear.  

Come on into Herb’s and ask a salesperson to show you our offerings in men’s jeans and casual pants that contain that hint of stretch.  Or look for the signs in the pants department.  We know you’ll be pleased.  Then go ahead—take a deep breath!

Enjoy a Safe Summer!

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 12:18:39 PM America/New_York

The forecast is promising 90 degrees this weekend and Central New York has been awaiting this for months. As the warmer days approach please remember that safety for your family should always hold precedence. No matter how you “Get Out And Live It” make sure to follow these important safety tips. It’s Getting Hot Out There…so, keep hydrated! Even if you think you’re drinking enough water, chances are you could be drinking more. If you are engaged in high-impact outdoor activities drink two to four (16-32 ounces) of cool fluids per hour at a minimum. Not drinking enough water can trigger life-threatening conditions like heat stroke or damage to your organs.

As the weather warms up the mosquitoes will swarm. Some mosquitoes can carry diseases that are far worse than impending itchiness. With the recent rash of Zika Virus and West Nile, the best way to prevent it it is to ward them off from the beginning. Make sure to use a repellent spray, candle, band, or repellent clothing and reapply if applicable as necessary. When you are outside avoid floral perfumes and wear light-colored loose clothing. Mosquitoes hate certain smells including citrus, basil, and eucalyptus. If a natural approach is your preference you can wear these oils or grow these in your garden to ward off pesks.

The pools are opening and the beaches are packed. Ensure that if you are in a public facility that a lifeguard is present and that personal floatation devices (PFD’s) are utilized. If you are in a private facility, ensure children are monitored constantly and ensure PFD’s are properly fitted for their age and weight. Keep in mind that sunscreen needs to be applied and reapplied even when you’re in the water. You might not feel the burn when you’re swimming, but coating yourself with a waterproof sunscreen will protect you throughout your summertime activities. Here at Herb’s we want to wish you and your family an enjoyable and safe summer.

Please come to any of our 9 locations or shop online at to find items that will keep you and your family safe this summer.

Fidget Spinners Coming to Herb's

Thursday, May 11, 2017 8:37:27 AM America/New_York

If you are the parent of a child between the ages of 3 and 18 you have most likely been on the other end of fidget spinner madness. If you don’t know what a fidget spinner is, let me explain. They were originally designed in the 1990’s by a woman in search of a tool that could aid her with an ailment which caused muscle weakness. Her patent was sold to Hasbro toys and the Fidget Spinner was officially born.

In 2016, the public saw another benefit of the spinner with helping people suffering from ADHD, autism, and anxiety. The jury is still out on how beneficial fidget spinners truly are for use as an aide. One thing is certain though, its popularity is exploding!

So spin on over to any of our 9 locations and grab your fidget spinner today.
