    Ha yea I picked a jacket up already but I'm looking for more. I just got a Porsche Design Softshell Goretex but I want something not black too. And maybe something heavier and down filled.

    Those timbs are nice. I have a brown pair. Light and comfortable. Not feelin the black that much though. I like that second pair. Who makes them. And where can you get them?
    I've tried a pair of the Timberlands before but wasn't sold on the brown enough to pull the trigger. Comfy shoes though, do they hold up well in the city? I only own one pair of black shoes that's too dressy for my usual style - I thought the black could be a good change of pace and suitable for wear even in fine weather. Second pair is Tretorn Strala. Wouldn't be as versatile as the boots, but cheaper by half and should keep my feet dry.

    Well I don't live in the city but I used them last winter to get around campus in central New York. It snows all the time and they were great.

    yes

    EDIT: there is one nearby that I visit periodically, and it is very fine. They have yet to drop the price on it by 60% though. That seems like a very reasonable price under the circumstances.

    Acne's flannels this season are AMAZING. Their stuff is always too expensive, though. I'd wait for a deeper discount.

    NDG vs W+H knit is definitely no contest, but if ndg is out of your price range wh isn't a bad value. Especially if living in canadistan results in price drops on wh stuff.

    I paid retail for an NDG scarf, but if you're talking about cardigans, W+H and NDG are both awfully pricey. I picked up an Our Legacy knit for $150 and it's really nice. Totally satisfied.

    I'd just go for one of Julius' other slim fitting trousers. The cargo pockets sort of ruin it for me.

    Debating between a gray tweed and a black twill blazer...

    OHNOEZ THE BLACK <_<

    I actually like the black a bit better because gray tweed kinda...makes me look old and black pairs slightly better with my jeans and tees ~_~;; but the gray is better casual...aughhhhhh DX
