    Winter coat

    Hi guys,

    Feels like it has been ages since I bought anything.
    Anyway I want to buy a couple of new winter coats.
    I need a short-ish overcoat for work, which I will probably get from Reiss or All Saints - but I also need a proper warm jacket for when I travel round Iceland in November - but also use it back here in London as well.
    I'm thinking a parka or a shearling, budget 300 (could stretch it further)

    This Penfield is the only thing I have found really. Not sure if I am feeling it..


    Any ideas...

    I quite like the Sixth June fur hood parkas on eBay. I got the Enfin Leve black one last year, not sure if it's still in stock.

    I live in Toronto so winters can be an absolute bitch.

    Go for something solid like Canada Goose or Moose knuckles

    how are these winter parkas supposed to fit? tried one at uniqlo and im usually a small or medium depending on the jacket but I felt like even a small was gigantic.

    So i tried an XS and it seemed like a better fit. How does everyone go about the sizing?

    I'd look around the web for a Sandro or Kooples parka on sale. The design / cut will be better than outdoorsy brands.

    I usually try them on and see which size fits best.
    I tried to live a double life, but my alter ego didn't understand the concept.

    How about a shearling parka?

    "Iceberg" Olive Green Suede Fleece Lined Coat - TK Maxx

    Not the greatest brand, but it's fucking nice tbh

    My mum has a shearling parka. She's cool from time to time.

    If you can afford it, you should order it imo!
