So far the only thing that saves me is Canada goose, and Shearling coat. any other suggestions?

1) layer. Winter in TO can be -20 one day and +20 the next.

2) various small features really help. So zipper with buttons on the outside. The buttons close the front over the zipper. When it's really windy the wind will go right past the zipper teeth. For the sleeves make sure the cuffs are fitted. A hood. I'd add a hat under the hood when it's really cold.


Obviously you want good boots and gloves.No exposed skin.

You should be able to handle the average day with just a wool coat and layering. It's only those really cold weeks you need the extreme stuff.

As far as I know, there is no US website for SAB. However, many retailers carry SAB (without explicitly stated so), like Brooks Brothers, Ralph Lauren, J. Peterman, etc.,

Is anyone familar with this Brooks Brothers sale going on now? Enjoy 25% off when using your BB Card or BB Platinum card, Enjoy 15% off when using any other form of payment. I wonder if I can use my corporate discount with that...

Does anybody know how to get a turmeric (or mustard) stain out of a shirt? It's fresh. I tried water and a Tide stain pen thing, but no dice.

My current non-iron shirts are all poly/cotton blends, and I'm having an all-cotton non-iron shirt competition to choose what will replace them. The contestants are from Brooks Brothers, Nordstrom, Lands' End, and Jos. A. Bank.

My questions: do the non-iron treatments applied to these shirts make them shrink-resistant as well? How much shrinkage, if any, should I expect in the sleeves?

anyone know the best place to check out some valextra stuff aside from barneys?

There are several threads on this and if you search you will see lots of opinions. I have had some BB non-iron shirts in the past and I don't think they shrank much if any. You would not need to order a different sleeve length than normal. As far as these shirts go, they were fine, but I ended up returning them because I did not like the feel of the non-iron fabric, so maybe I am not the best judge.

Ditto. I've had a few BB non-iron and they didn't shrink at all. That said, I hate non-iron fabric -- it doesn't breathe, and it's treated with a formaldehyde resin that may or may not cause cancer. :P

I do still keep two of them around (blue and white) for travel.

I say, learn to iron and be more comfortable!
