Winter Coats - Page 2

In a -10 cold, nobody's going to stop to look at how you dress, and when you're indoors, you'd have peeled off your coats.

-10, -40, Inner Mongolia...whatever. I know women that are colder.

What about up to $500 options for a standard winter coat that you would wear to the office over a suit? I have a camel and more casual mid-grey and am now looking for a black or very dark charcoal in a slimmer cut that hits mid-thigh.

I live in the midwest and store-wise only have Macy's, Dillard's, and Von Maur. Those places have plenty of very boxy Calvin Klein and other boxy store brands. I have looked at Banana Republic and J Crew and didn't find what I wanted Any websites or brands you suggest (Yoox? Club Monaco?) that have slimmer options would be appreciated.

Actually, temperature is not the only thing that matters for whether one thinks it's cold or not. Used to live in a place that never saw temperatures drop more than a few degrees below 0C, but it was always wet (rain, sleet) and windy and I have never been freezing as much as I did those years. I now live in a place that regularly see --15C for weeks and that inevitably get at least a few days each winter with temps of -30C or lower. But the climate is much dryer and usually much less windy, and I never really become cold. So temperature is only one part of the equation....
