Holiday shopping has emptied the shelves of many retail and online stores, especially when it comes to top-selling brands like Andrew Marc(R), UGG(R) and Spiewak(R). F. L. Crooks & Co., specializing in current outdoor sportswear and designer apparel, has come to the rescue. A post-holiday sale features 25% off on all men’s Andrew Marc coats purchased at the website. F.L.Crooks & Co. has also re-stocked six best-selling UGG(R) color/style combinations, including Classic Talls and Shorts and the “Bailey Button Triplet.” And for shoppers searching high and low on current colors and styles in this year’s hottest men’s coat, the Spiewak, including the “Wilson” and the “Dugan,” they’ll find them at at a15% discount, in stock, and ready to ship.

“We’ve been serving our customers since 1905 when we first began offering top names in outdoor gear and sportswear, and we’re familiar with the post-holiday ’empty-shelf syndrome,'” says Lydia Crooks, co-owner and manager of online sales. “So we plan ahead. Best-selling items our customers want—UGGs and Spiewak peacoats—are in stock. The post-holiday sale on Andrew Marc leather coats is just one way we’re helping to usher in 2011 with style.” shoppers will also save with a 15% discount on Patagonia, The North Face and Ibex outdoor sportswear.

F.L.Crooks & Co. has operated from the same location since 1905, growing to a 10,000 square foot store in Clarion, PA. The 25% discount on current styles of Andrew Marc coats, made of genuine 100% cowhide leather or shearling, is valid for online purchases only. Customers can shop the new inventory in UGG and Spiewak at or by visiting the store.

UGG footwear features twin-face Grade A sheepskin with raw edges, suede heel guards and nylon binding. Extra comfortable, UGGs are made with cushy foam covered in a genuine sheepskin sock that naturally wicks away moisture and helps keep feet dry. The light, flexible molded EVA bottom of every UGG has a patent-protected outsole design.

In the outdoor gear and sportswear apparel business just a year longer than F.L. Crooks and Co., Spiewak & Sons has been making coats since 1904. Heralded for perfecting peacoat construction and style, Spiewak supplied coats for soldiers in both World Wars. Spiewak coats—considered a best kept fashion secret around the world—are also worn with pride by thousands of police officers, fire fighters and EMS technicians.

F.L. Crooks & Co. is a proud seller of Spiewak, UGG, Andrew Marc and an extensive selection of designer apparel and outdoor sportswear for men, women and children. Shoppers can see the fresh inventory and post-holiday sales at or visit the 10,000 square-foot, Clarion, PA, store.
