This year I want to get a nice down jacket as they are predicting a cold winter, but I can't seem to decide which one. I have been looking at the Long-Belted Puffer Coat (128USD or 148CAD) on the US Gap website for a while and finally it made its way into our stores. It comes in 3 colours: Black, Expedition Gray and Taproot. Below is Expedition Gray size S. The coat itself is extremely light, but I still felt like the Michelin man wearing it.
Here's the Taproot colour, and may I add, it's nothing like what I see on the website:
The Lightweight Puffer Vest (59.50USD or 79.50CAD) felt better. This one is the Wild Cherry colour, but it also comes in True Black, Silver Gray, Navy Uniform and Brown Mustard.
Gap's version of the Striped Boatneck T (34.50USD or 39.50USD) is made of very thick, good quality cotton and has 3 tiny buttons on the left shoulder. This one is an M as all the S sizes were sold out in the store, but it would work if you prefer one that's a bit more roomy.
Also Gap's version of the Tweed Moto Jacket (89.50USD or 110CAD) is a fun piece as well. The quality of the pics is not very good, but you get the idea about the fit (size S).

The poster you see behind me on the wall is for the Sprize card. It is free and you can get special offers through it. Right now in Canada you can get 20% off for purchases of $50+ or 30% off for purchases of $75+. Offer is good through tomorrow.
Other coats to consider:
The challenge is finding one that won't make you look like you are about to roll down the street. :)
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
