    Thoughts? Opinions? Fjallraven From China....

    I have no proof, but I can't see how those aren't fake. Fjallraven parka's usually cost over $400 and they just happen to have tons of them in different sizes and colours for $99?

    Yeah they don't even make a jacket that looks like that as far as I know.

    Old Moncler (FW08/09), but it looks like a decent mix between a wool coat and a shiny parka to my eye:

    I tried on one of the shiny Moncler jackets at Bloomingdale's the other day. Color was nice, kind of a dark chocolate brown, but the whole shiny down parka thing just seems way too trendy. Hard to imagine it still looking good in 5 yrs.

    Anyone have any recommendations that aren't down jackets(I don't like how they look), and will keep me dry? I can usually tolerate the Bay Area cold with a few layers, I just don't want to get wet. I was looking at Nau's Succinct Trench here: http://www.nau.com/mens/categories/jackets/ Some of their other jackets are pretty cool looking, but not all have a hood and I'm particular about it being black.

    Any suggestions would be great. I don't really want to spend more than $300, anymore and I'd rather just go buy an outdoor brand jacket and not worry about how I look since I'll be warm and dry. Eco-friendly or locally made would be a plus(thought I don't expect it because I'm aware that most of the good seem taping went to China).

    I really like this.

    Other than the Wings & Horns one from this season, any other 'wool' puffer jackets about?

    Really want to buy this, but im afraid it will fit like a blimp and am scared to size down.

    Anyone with experience with LL Bean outerwear?

    Sweet, thanks.
    Does this indicate it might be a good fit for a 42-44? Chest/shoulders sound fine but im unfamiliar with measuring puffy things.

    I also have the Canada Goose Calgary jacket (in size M) and it's a great, clean coat. Super warm too.

    I'm not a big fan of other CG stuff, the non-Japan lines are way too bulky. Great for warmth, but IMO not very stylish.

    My Calgary is black, but I saw the Graphite Grey at Uncle Otis last weekend and it looked really nice:

    The price is the same as I paid last year, $600 CDN. Holt Renfrew also sells this coat, as does Over The Rainbow.

    If you want something with a bit more ornamentation, the Manitoba jacket from CG Japan loses the fur hood, but adds 4 large pockets to the front. Personally I prefer the cleaner look of the Calgary.
