Any recommendations on a light fall jacket under ~$200? Something that can be worn casual or out. Haven't been able to find anything I really like.

I personally love anoraks and parkas for fall. They're great to layer with as well. I have a blue parka from Gap that was only 60$ but is looks pretty decent.

I just got around to wearing black pants with elastane that I bought over the weekend.

I'd be lying if I said that I'm thinking of dumping all of my other pants/jeans and just getting pants with elastane from now on. They're comfier than sweatpants imo.

I'm looking to add another Parka to my wardrobe this year, I already have a Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber, and is debating between a CG Arctic Down Parka, Moose Knuckle or the Parajumper

Parajumpers Kodiak Jacket Mens - SportChek.ca

Moose Knuckles Canada ? Stirling Parka

or

EXPEDITION PARKA? | Canada Goose

I'll grab 1 out of the 3 for sure but might even get 2...

thoughts guys?


goose will def be the warmest out of all those.honestly i still get a little chilly some nights wearing a goose here in van but yea overall its a bit overkill.Moose knuckle isnt a bad choice either but, its a bit more on the girly side imo. mackage is another popular brand too. i just got the mackage dixon-f3 and its pretty warm to, and the rabbit fur feels great around your face.

Buy a Sterlingwear USN issue peacoat and take it to a tailor to perfect the fit.
