I see no problem wearing The North Face and Carhartt, two brands that I use for warmth and durability. They are better than high cost inferior designer knock offs.

Actually this thread reminds me, I need to shop for a new winter coat (for extreme cold days) shortly. Carhartt has some nice-looking womens jackets in purple and lavender.
Trendy? Nope.
Warm and well-made? Yep!

Oh the horror of discussing fashion in the fashion forum. It's fine if people don't care what they wear. That's why their style is plain-they look like almost like everyone else. Again if you don't care about fashion why bother to even spend the effort of posting that you don't care about fashion in the sub forums dedicated to fain. There are plenty of fashionable coats that are warm which is pprobably why as I stated earlier I see many kids here wearing leather again or some other style of coat instead of the typical zip fleece.

About 1/3 of my students in suburban DC (Prince George's County) had North Face wear on today.

I live 25 miles NW of Boston, lots of NorthFace vests and baseball caps with ponytails all around me.

I bought my husband a Down Coat from The Company Store that has to be at least 20 yrs. old. (The Company Store doesn't sell coats any longer) Probably because they will outlast us. Every time we go up North so does the coat & mine with it. Fashion forward? Nope! Warm and toasty--absolutely!

I have not seen full length coats in a couple of years, they are not in fashion. I will not freeze because the Designers decided knee length is in.

When did Gore-Tex® and down or fiber filled coats and jackets go out of style?

...I must have missed the memo or more to the point, the Tweet.

I admit I've never found much for myself there but ours has had some great buy-outs of old Gymboree stock (the good stuff from the retail stores not the cheaper stuff from the Gymboree outlet)
Nothing. Just kidding

I actually buy quite a few of my coats there.
