    It's better when you say it to a lady. Instant reaction.

    I personally can't do this whole gypsy thing (I don't layer much and very often wear a sportscoat underneath). I wear either leather jackets, bombers or menswear overcoats. Wearing a navy cashmere overcoat today.

    I just want that wool wrap coat because i'm cold. i think heirloom has an iteration and he looks warm. but ultimately it's just appealing in theory as i would not wear it anywhere (maybe go for groceries ?). thick sweater + coat is all i need. can't believe Moth is so schizophrenic with that CDGH+ wool coat !

    I don't understand how Canadians can handle winter. I have lived here for years now and every winter I bitch about how cold it is. My new plan of attack for Winter 2010 is to wear triple (last year was double) heat tech longjohns under bigger jeans, get a big Buzz Rickson's parka, triple heat tech and a sweater under that, triple heat tech socks and work boots, and not go outside.

    That's like asking how a fish handles living in the water.

    Jeans aren't the greatest way to handle the cold. Sure, they're heavy, but cotton isn't very heat retaining, and it's like having a cold sheet of ice on you. You want flannel, son.

    Seriously don't understand how people wear jeans in winter, but I guess since it is the de facto pant for millions of people.

    See, I am constantly trying to find an alternative to a sportcoat. I will wear any kind of formless top piece before I have to choose sportcoat. Just personal preference... I guess i want to look like I'm wearing some kind of sweater or turtleneck year round.

    Does my new Good Wear horsehide jacket make the cut? [​IMG]
    No. Fits well, but is the definition of bland.

    This. At least now beanies and boots are cool. When I was in high school, no one ever wore a hat in the winter unless it hit -15 C or so.

    haha for real, i bought a Canada Goose for fuck's sake. that julius down is so cool looking but it would probably shatter in Montreal.

    I live in Winnipeg, which is bad enough when it's warm outside. Winter just makes it completely [​IMG] on every level.

    On topic, wrt baller outerwear, does anyone have any experience with m.a+ outerwear? I like the way that raglan coat that Atelier has looks. Probably will never cop, but I'm interested if anyone can speak on it.
