Ugh, I don't know how you manage it! I think I stayed home "sick" the last time it snowed in any meaningful way here. If I could I would move to Chang Mai and chuckle at the very idea of snow! Bundle up and stay as warm as is possible. Poor you!
Staying warm is no problem. I have lots of Carhartt's. I don't feel anything when I am outside, but this snow is starting to suck, and like Duke said, It's just the beginning.

Even my cats know how warm Carhartt's are. When I hang my outfit up, they climb up the legs and sit up in there.

“Meh.”

One of the weirdest things about living in Japan were how some clothing brands were cult items due to difficult import laws. There was a shop down at Kawaramachi Sanjo in Kyoto that only sold Carhartt cloths, for 5-10 time what you would see them for in the states. They were a massive fashion statement!

I buy nothing but Carhartt now. I've probably got over $700.00 invested in them. A couple of weeks ago, I got the Extremes full outfit for $159.00. Did you know that the Extremes line was originally designed for the Alaskan pipeline workers? I gave 2 of my coats to a couple of co workers who needed a winter coat and they love them.

I just had another successful plowing adventure and I still have more coming down. I'll take a pic and put it on my avatar.

there is clothing that is designed to be worn by forklift drivers in freezers. Actually to thick for anything but sitting. 10oz of fill, and nylon ripstop shell. Easy laundry.

There also is 6oz insulated nylon both sides pant and jacket. They are inexpensive items, and when covered with a good rain suit the perfect winter wear. very lightweight.

Carhartt red lining is 4oz of fiberfill, and the taupe or black 6oz of insulation.

Carhartt is mostly 12oz duck material, and cotton. Triple stitched, and reinforced in contact areas.

Brown duck color is to hide dirt. All colors added together do not equal brown duck color in sales.

Carhartt used to be only American made. Today they import the sme crap as everyone else, and charge 50% for brand over same unbranded item.

Funnier yet is Walls Clothing was made in Texas, and now 100% imported to sell to Walmart.
Walls invented insulated workwear, and 1st item was foam carpet padding sewn in brown duck bib overalls many years ago.

People pay double for the word carhartt on items they import from same manufacturer others do.

“Meh.”

I'll assume you mean the dropped 'e' in clothes? Because if you're going to tell me that Shijo is romanized Shiijo, you're wrong.

I do think it's amazing that you've managed to make a pretty glaring error in either typing or grammar (I'm honestly not sure if it's a typo or you think "and how inept your are" is correct) while taking me to task. It's those messages that you need to triple check, so as to not look silly.

“Meh.”

I should check them out! We're up Iceland way in a few weeks for some stupid snow things and to try and see the lights (his idea, not mine) and have been in a blink panic trying to come up with some warm weather gear!
