Probably both are about the same for warmth, though the parka might be more versatile with the hood. I wore my melton wool guide jacket in Chicago when I visited in Feb/Mar and it did alright during the day, but not so great at night...

Doesn't the mountain parka have a cotton shell? This would be a deal breaker for me. At least wool dries quickly and doesn't get or feel soggy in the snow/rain. My approach to Chicago winters has always been to layer, often with a heavy-ish wool mid layer topped with a lighter-weight waterproof shell, like the fisherman's caguole I picked up from Albam a few seasons ago.

Wore my Melton Wool Maine Guide Jacket in the snow in NYC. Layered underneath with a thermal, shirt and sweater it worked. The melton wool shouldn't let rain through, although it doesn't cover as much area as the parka.

This is definitely on my list of purchases, did it fit TTS? Also, anyone seen the knitwear being sold anywhere? Looking for the Lodge Cardigan or Lodge Vest.... Alsox2 just for an FYI, the Nepenthes NY store does stock WWM.

In knitwear, I've only seen the Field Wool Cardigan, at Unionmade. You might want to give them a call since they don't have that online, which means they have other items not online too.

I just called Unionmade, and they bought the Cardigan and Lodge vest, but there were some production delays and those haven't been shipped out yet. The SA I talked to said the vest should be around 350 and the cardigan 500 and they should be arriving (hopefully) within a few weeks. Also he said that he will be updating the site when he can, and that it just takes some time.

(So thanks Timpo! If you're ever in NYC or Boston I definitely owe you a beer for all the help/ knowledge you give out.)

I think it's a 65/35 poly/cotton shell. None of the product descriptions state that it's water resistant/repellent so I'm guessing the fabric's not treated in any way?

^ The problem with a place like Chicago is that as you go about your day outside, your clothes accumulate snow/ice/precipitation. All that stuff melts the instant you go inside, leading to soggy, waterlogged clothes that will just freeze and feel colder the next time you go outside. Waterproof/heavily water-resitant is the only way to go in the midwest, IMO. Like I said, I layer and wear a light waxed cotton shell from Albam; my roommate prefers her heavy, wool-lined, knee length parka from Filson, also waxed cotton. That said, we don't drive, and so do lots of walking... A 60/40 might do you OK if you're not out in the elements for extended periods of time.
