Parkas and down coats

Speaking of outdoors-type stuff, there’s a nice post on The Spike about Canada Goose parkas.  I’d not heard of these before and they won’t fit me (I entered my measurements into their calculator and it came up with an “Oop! We cannot find a size for you”.  Probably a good thing).

However, it has rather reignited my interest in very warm coats.  I am extremely unlikely to buy one, mainly because a super warm coat is likely to be a massive nuisance on the bus or in John Lewis.  There’s nothing wrong with eyeing things up on the internet though.

This is nice, although expensive enough that I will cry if I get pen on it.

This looks very warm (tested down to -32C!) and the fur hood is fake (so less guilt / anxiety).  Plus, although pricey, it is not as insanely expensive as the one above.

This probably is good enough.  But I wouldn’t love it whenever I put it on.

Anyway, it’s ridiculous.  I HAVE coats, bloody billions of them.  And I’ve just chucked out half my wardrobe.  I don’t need a new coat.

Here are some pictures of trees with berries on.

London is not cold enough for a coat that is good down to -32C
