The Mountain Hardwear Downtown parka has a similar look and has no outside logos at all that I can find. I have not lived w/ a CG, so can't compare, but the Downtown is certainly quite warm.

Who does polos well (lately)? Golfers. RLX, Adidas, Nike, Puma. I also like Burberry, although you have to pay $125 for a $10 shirt. Lands' End aren't bad either.

Here's a CG Ontario, black, XL on sale locally for $555.99 from $694.99, not much, but it's something:
Most places, including Nordstrom, carry the Chilliwack and Expedition in black. I have also seen the Chilliwack in red, the Burnett in gray, and the Chateau in black. The CG website has 16 different coats, each available in 8-16 colors. I don't mind buying on-line and exchanging a few times, but it would be fun to see more models and especially, more colors, before taking the plunge.
