Jose: After seeing those ski gloves, I thought that perhaps this is something you need to know about living in very cold climates (though it likely applies to tropical climes to some extent):
There are constant tradeoffs to be made between looking stylish and being warm. At one extreme, you can wear a parka, ski gloves, hat, sorel boots
... and you will be nice and toasty, but you will look like a dufus if you are walking around a major city like NY or Boston. AFAIAC, these accoutrements are only permissible when the temperature drops below -30C and where you're simply in survival mode outside and looking good is not on your mind, which thankfully does not happen too often.
At the other extreme, you can wear your nice EGs, a light topcoat, silk scarf, lamb leather gloves, no hat... and you will look smashing but will freeze your butt off during most winter days. Everyone's tolerance for cold and for looking like a dufus is different, so the trick is to find the right balance that works for you given your own preferences.
My advice to you is to get a nice cashmere scarf, get some leather gloves (not ski gloves!), some boots that will keep your feet warm and dry but still look good and if you feel really cold walking in Boston, go to a ski shop and buy yourself a tuque, neck warmer, ski gloves... the works.
