Trust me, they've caught on. About, um 2 winters ago, they were "the" coat to have in Milan (don't ask me why, it's not that cold there.) And these days, everyone who doesn't wear a North Face around here is wearing a Canada Goose. Which is funny, because I don't see many Canadians ever wearing them (I am a Canadian, and am back every December.) I personally eschew all that and either layer something under a moleskin jacket (not so warm, but whatever, I was born and bred in a cold, dank, place) or wear a Norfolk wool/alpaca jacket by Edun or this year, will be wearing my new Engineered Garments Engineer jacket.
