I just pulled out my Kenneth Cole parka purchased at Costco a couple years ago for about $75...still warm and reasonably cute! I was kinda hoping there would be something wrong with it so I'd have an excuse to buy another winter coat but it's still good ;-)

Here I'm seeing Canada Goose on EVERYONE but those coats are so expensive!

Nordstrom has a good selection, I want a packable down coat...maybe wait for the after Christmas sales! xo

Sears is the worst. They'll put stuff on sale online and refuse to give you the discount in store if you find it there. One salesperson said, "Well you can buy it on your phone and choose pick up in store and come back to the register and pick it up." It was so bad. They have lots of backwards policies there. I'm not surprised they are in serious financial trouble.
