I finally got my Merrell jacket, now that it is nice and warm again. I'm not very excited, though. It was stuffed into a box, so it is all wrinkly and it has an awful amount of lint on it. The hem on the bottom seems all weird and wavy too, maybe that will come out with a pressing.
I hope once it is cleaned up I will be happy.

yeah I do find that mine wrinkles up pretty easily. I'm thinking of giving it a wash and a cool iron this weekend and see how that goes. I'm only wearing this coat for work, as I wanted something a bit dressier, and I've never been 100% happy with "dressy" vegan coats. But on the whole I do really like this coat, it looks nice and is really warm.

I. love.my. Merrell coat.

I got the Jacqueline, not the Haven like most of the people in this thread, and I also ordered it directly from Merrell. It's the first winter coat in my entire life that didn't have sleeves that were too short (they're perfect!) and theres a ton of awesome pockets, and it's so awesome and great. It was forking cold as shiitake tonight and I was good and happy.

And it looks great.

It was packed well, wasn't wrinkly. I'm so happy. It's the best winter coat I've ever had.

I ordered mine from La Cordee, a Canadian site that didn't charge shipping. In my experience, not many Canadian sites don't charge for shipping, or even provide the products in Canada. I did try the jacket on in a store, and I really liked it, but it was too tight across my chest, so I need to go up a size and unfortunately the store didn't have it, and couldn't bring it in.
Hopefully, once I clean it up and cool iron it, I'll be pleased.

Okay, I love the hemp stuff I own and damn it, I already bought a new coat this year but I really like the hemp hoodlamb ones and I could use a black or neutral color bomber jacket to keep me warm for casual outings.

https://store.hempest.com/catalog/produ ... hp?pid=693

I really like the hemp hoodlamb shorter black jacket (I love the long one, but I already have a long winterish black coat that goes to the mid thigh). Anyone think the more bomber-jacket style would cover to just below the asparagus? that's the length I'd want, but not as long as the mid-thigh coverage. (the hemp hoodland woman's black for $259.00 is the one I'm thinking about).

I didn't try that one on, but looking at the picture, I think so? Maybe a tad shorter.

Ohhh, I didn't see the different view pictures. That's pretty much the length I was hoping for, too. Hmmmm...I'm soooo tempted.

Oh, I love this Merrell Jacket too:
http://www.merrell.com/US/en-US/Product ... mensions=0

Except, I prefer that it have a hood. It's very fitted and cute and stylish though. I think this is the same Merrell website that you guys are talking about above. I see some of the style names (Jacqueline, Haven--nice stuff!) for their coats are the same.

STOP, I want so much STUFF now and I don't usually!!!! There's also a really cool blue hoodie at hemp hoodlamb that I'm now eyeing--in addition to the black hooded bomber. Pandora's box of bottomless shopping has now opened to me! gah!

Just picked these up, in black -- Totes Rosie boots. Cheap, very warm, waterproof, 100% man-made materials according to the tag on the inside. I wear an 8, but these seem to run a bit (maybe a half-size) large. Use "BDAY" as the coupon code for 20% off at Shoebuy.com.

I've lived in southeastern Wisconsin since I was born, but these are my first pair of bonafide winter boots! Thinking about snagging Totes Staride boots after my tax return comes in as well. Cute snowflakes!

dr. apricot is the reason i have a pair of bogs. they are so awesome. my feet are easily the warmest part of my body, now.

here's an outstanding question: what about gloves? i cycle a lot and my fingers are always freezing. if bogs made gloves, i'd be in 7th heaven. so far, i'm stuck putting thin gloves inside of mittens.

Skirt power. They make it easy to layer tights or leggings underneath.

I'm a large (read: fat) guy, and I lucked out with JC Pennys this past November--pleather jackets in my size (3XL) for about $30. They were on sale, and I also had a coupon. Something to remember, if there are any larger guys looking still.

resurrecting this thread to say that the following things have made this winter possible so far for me:

-those damn sweatshoppy cuddle duds shirts and tights. i got them at a thrift shop though, so i don't feel bad. holy warm.
-getting a pair of girls' footless fleece lined tights, cutting them, and using the legs as wrist warmers. i wear a pair every day and it makes an amazing difference. cut the crotch out of the leftover part and you basically have a neck gaiter or one of those buff hairband things.

what are you using to keep warm this year?

Last week it got cold enough to bust out my trusty insulated trousers for the season. Other than that my strategy is: never stand still while outside.

I'm looking for new cardigans, though, since I noticed that the sleeves on mine are very worn. Mostly I have been wearing my polar fleece jacket that I got on sale at a random sports shop a few years ago. Did I mention I hate shopping?

Someone, I think my old housemate, left a pair of boxer shorts here. I haven't seen him for years so I washed them and have been wearing them over knickers but under jeans for extra warmth round my hips, as they give me grief when it gets colder. Thinking of getting some jockey shorts as they'll be more snug.

word. I've worn pants like three times in the past month. all about tall thigh highs with skirts. pants are uncomfy



anyone know where I could get a non-wool//non-felt larger brimmed hat? like either a fedora style or western looking/hippie style?
I'm so stumped. I've only seen a nice one for like $100 and I can't spend that much on a hat because I lose things.

I just bought this jacket in a local store, Arcteryx 40% off (though still pricey even with the discount!). I am still looking for a warm "puffy" jacket - but I find they're all down! So discouraging.

Try patagonia - I buy all my winter coats from them because they have a pretty good selection of warm, non-down coats (they're expensive, but they do have good sales and you can get really good prices on amazon sometimes). The vosque parka is new and looks amazing, though super expensive. I've been really happy with my low sky parka (except that it doesn't have a hood) and with my powder bowl jacket. They're both good down to single digits (as cold as it gets here) with a fleece on underneath. The lydia jacket is pretty and feels like wearing a cloud, but it's not warm enough for me on the days I would want a long puffy coat. I also used to have a rubicon rider jacket and loved it - super warm and water resistant (it lasted through about 6 years of hard use, and then lost its waterproofing).
