True story: A colleague of ours didn’t want to spend the nearly-$1,000 it costs for a Woolrich parka, so instead spent $150 on a very similar-looking Uniqlo version. To be honest, we were a bit skeptical: how could this be that warm? And that cheap? But after wearing it for several months and through some super-cold days, she has reported back to me that this coat has kept her extremely warm—sometimes too warm—and she could not be happier with her purchase. Now, this coat is on sale for $80.
Original Price: $150
Note: It’s available for men (and even cheaper, at $60!) too.
