Bumping this thread for the upcoming winter.
Anyone see any good deals on some quality stuff?

I'd like up upgrade both my gloves and hat this year.

I do not play the designer logo game, and I am acutely aware of diminishing returns (and overpaying) Is it worth spending more for winter hats and winter gloves? If so, can you post links?

Again, I don't want standard $10 stuff that is just marked up to $50 b/c they're being sold under a well known brand. Paying more just to pay more is dumb. It's gotta either have some real style points, or be made like nothing else, or I will gladly stick to $5 gloves and hat if nothing is compelling, (or is just a flagrant designer ripoff) or if hat/gloves are just not the segment to spend extra money for quality.

Think $300 for a Hudson's Bay Company wool blanket that is 8lbs heavy. Think $800 for shell cordovan that will last for years, etc.

Thanks!

Gloves and a Hat (except for rain) in San Francisco?
Are you anemic?

Cashmere lined peccary.

For hats, it's hard to beat a cashmere cap

No shit. This seems like your one preoccupation.

For gloves, I would look to this guide:

I just found a trapper/aviator hat I liked at Needless Markups and traced it back to the source, a company in Canada called Crown Cap: http://crowncap.com/

 

I bought a different (better than at NM and cheaper on the site) shearling hat, which is on the way. Can't speak to the quality just yet but they seem to have an excellent cost:quality ratio.

 

I am so sick of gloves that only last a season. Anyone have a line on good leather gloves that can still operate a touch screen?
