Simple but startling truths: peanuts are not actually nuts, strawberries are not berries and London Fog, the quintessential outerwear brand, is not based in London. In fact, it's not even British. (We were shocked, too.) London Fog got its start back in Baltimore, MD back in 1923, and found its niche during the second World War by manufacturing waterproof clothing for the U.S. Navy. But the classic rain coats that we all know and love didn't appear until the 1950s, and even then, they were only for ladies. Gee, you think you know a brand! Lucky for us, London Fog has significantly expanded its product line over time to offer up the stylish outerwear, umbrellas, bags, hats and footwear - for ladies, gents and kids - that we all know and love.
