    I don't live in the us, so I wouldn't know, but a the end of season, if you want something at a discount.

    Altrec is a legitimate retailer of outdoor products. Highly doubt they would sell unauthentic goods. The 50% discount offered by DJ Bennett is about the best I've ever heard of - jump on it.

    Forgive my fashion ignorance, but can someone please point me to some stylish alternatives to CG as a starting point? I just moved to Calgary and my assortment of wool overcoats and peacoats seriously ain't gonna cut it. I've got a budget of under $1K. I have trouble finding Moncler stuff that I like. I just want a supercoat that I can basically throw on and not freeze to death. I don't think suggestions like "just layer" "wear a scarf" etc. are always practical, sensible or ideal.

    What are some thoughts on the Branta collection? http://www.canada-goose.com/collections/travel/

    CG is not a bad choice for Calgary. They mostly look like blacked out parkas which lots of folks wear. Moncler will stand out a lot more both from styling and fabric perspective. Depends a bit on how much time you spend outside as well and whether you wear jackets/suits underneath.

    I have a North Face Parka that looks like a CG (except for the logo of course). I use when it gets colder than minus 25 but that honestly does not happen that much anymore. I also have a down Penfield parka for weekends and driving to the ski hill. For most work days I wear a wool coat over suit. Lots of folks just use their warmer ski jacket when it gets colder. It is not a very formal city.

    Does anyone know how common folks wear CG in NYC? Thinking of copping a pair but don't want to look like everyone else. My only other option is Moncler but I'm leaning more towards CG due to design wise and CG feels like it can last longer.

    Not sure I understand that.....common folks put the jacket on and zip it up!

    Do you mean how common it is to see people in NYC with CG? If so.....people wear CG. You won't be alone.....

    Damn plebs putting on coats and zipping them, what's next putting pants on the right way round.

    Better wear your coat inside out so people can see you are not commoner.

    My bad, I meant how "common" it is to see people wearing CG in NYC, not "common folks."

    Anyway just wondering which bomber jacket is the slimmest- is it the Borden bomber?

    Singer22 is having 20% storewide but my size is all sold out :(

    I think the best time to buy is end-of-season. I bought a Citadel last year at Bloomingdales, on a clearance rack, for about $350. Can't beat that. But, doesn't help you this winter unfortunately.

    While the jacket you want is available some models sell out quickly depending on size and color, in some places stock will be low already.

    So you reckon I should buy now? I have no stuff for winter as I've just moved to NYC. Was thinking of waiting til Black Friday or something but if the deals aren't great I might as well get them now. Opinions?

    Just using a couple of sweatshirts at the moment. Was hoping I could wait til black friday to get one CG in order to save some $$.
    How cold will it get by black friday? I thought it'll only start snowing somewhere mid december?
    Where's good to get CG in NYC? I'm planning to get a Borden bomber and apparently not many places carry that.

    GearTrade, Back Country's outlet store is always worth checking out! You can find unbelievably good second hand quality merchandise. With Canada Goose, there is a seldom a need to get it brand new during the season.

    Cold and windy in the Colorado mountains! This is when I find my CG Chiliwack blocks both the cold and the wind!

    Worth every penny and then some that I paid for it.
