I am looking for an extremely warm BLACK winter parka that can take extreme temperatures like -30 degrees.

I know Canada Goose is good but too many people wear it which makes it kindaa boring.

I want a very stylish parka which is functional, NOT TOO BIG looking, ending at the waist with a cool fur lining...

all advice is greatly appreciated !!

Canada Goose and Woolrich is the warmest and the most stylish.

Canada Goose is one of these brands that I find inexplicably popular in Europe. If you want an alternative, Refrigiwear is not bad, but their parkas were really popular in Italy (of all places where parkas are not needed) a few years ago, so the fashion shelpf life may have expired. Spiewak is a classic name, and their products are durable and functional as well as stylish.

Alpha jackets are inexpensive, but... uh... lousy quality. I went through one in a week's time-----they should sell them on rolls; disposable, I mean... would make for a lousy sandwich I would guess.

Dunderdon makes some quality parkas, yes.

I champion Spiewak myself, or any jacket meant for snowboarding.

I'll have to tell mike from alpha nevermind about the order then...I had a bad feeling about that company. Fuck parka's just buy a heavier coat. My friend is a rocker. always wears skinny jeans and boots and shit; but his parents sent him a north face jacket in the mail; since he didn't have a jacket in chicago...it actually looks pretty cool. Buy one a size down and take a magic marker to the logo.

I have a Spiewak which has proved to be very durable and warm.

It's black, and looks badass. I wore it once when it was freezing cold out with black jeans, black boots, and a black balaclava, and it looked fucking scary.

It looks kind of like this one, minus the fur, and it has a stand-up collar:

Any online retailers for spiewak? other than ...........

I bought a fall jacket from them last year and I love it, slim fitting but you can still layer under it, very warm and durable but it still looks great.

but I can't seem to find any spiewak stuff right now.. I guess their fall collection hasn't come out yet?
