Never in my life have I....

Never in my life have I bought my own winter coat....or any coat?
Over the weekend Jocelyn bought one. We started at Scheels were they were $200-$1,000. Ended up going to Target where she got a medium duty Champion one for $70. It is rated for "warmest" though.

It made me realize I havent bought my own winter coat since moving out of the house in 2008. I had my high school coat I wore through college. I have my hunting coat from 2004 I wear i f I need something really warm while shoveling. Otherwise, day to day, I just wear a zip up hoodie doubled with a northface (both of which were Christmas gifts from mother in law). These two coats together keep me just as warm as my old Columbia

I think all my winter coats were hand-me-downs. I had a green one I got from my brother then a yellow one from my mother.
I usually just do layers I'm outside for long anymore with a 90's stoner poncho being used if necessary. t-shirt > thermal long sleeve > hoodie > poncho

Though I should be getting a Carthart from work this year.

I have had my Columbia since early in college, use it for if I'm outside doing things in the winter like shoveling or whatever. I bought a more fashionable winter coat myself probably 6ish years ago as my daily winter coat. Not quite as warm as the Columbia, but I'm generally not outside for very long when I wear it.

I wear my Mitchell and Huss carride (carhartt) if outside long, which was given to me. I did actually buy my first coat tho., a Columbia like 2 years ago.

The neon green one? It's your signature winter look.
