(I hope we all know the answer to this...but I just saw a guy downtown who was otherwise fairly well put together doing this...what is the matter with people?

If it was a ski jacket like this: images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQE-x0eAIFw-DlSw3lucwwCfTg3chbeXmlDYsGMu4eub7snCmk7

That's pretty bad.

If it was more like this:

I don't see the problem.

To be fair I have to imagine there are members here who have, likely on more than one occasion, weighed wearing an overcoat skiing...

Well that's just silly. Cold weather gear is always appropriate in extreme conditions. Health first, then style.

I wear a down jacket with suits sometimes - in my case a beige woolrich parka. So far nobody fainted after having seen me biggrin.gif

OP may have called it a ski jacket, but the example he posted is definitely not a ski jacket.

Ooops...my bad. But how many people actually play tennis in "tennis shoes?"


The guy I saw's coat only went down to the waist...it looked really stupid.

a parka that goes past the bottom of the suit jacket...fine in sub-zero temps.

anything else...unacceptable

Would a parka really keep one warmer than a thick wool overcoat? Especially with a suit underneath?
