Patagonia is TCR. You'd also never be cold in this: http://www.eddiebauer.com/catalog/produ ... wAll=y&pg=


+1 on Patagonia. They have awesome stuff.

The bookstore is super easy to get to from the law school (it's on the main campus). I got a tshirt AND mugs for my LOR writers!

They didn't have Chicago Law tshirts when I went! So mad! :evil: :evil: :evil:

I can't even find any online either.

I think it's up to us to get the discussion going!


I feel like Chi covers their bases with the chats.


I don't see where on the FB page there is an option for discussions. Am I missing something? Also, I was thinking more along the lines of looking for roommates, so the chats don't really help with that.

lol@the coat discussion in this thread. Chi seems about equal to where I grew up in upstate NY. Guess my clothes will suffice. On a side note, I knew NYC was warmer, but I didn't realize it was on average 10 degrees warmer in the winter...boy you guys are spoiled!

My thoughts exactly! :)

Thanks for the advice dany, emma, and everyone else!

One more question! Is it necessary or recommended to have it longer? Or is it ok to have one like emma just linked if its nice/warm enough?

Every single girl I have asked has said absolutely get a long coat that covers your butt. Haha.

And I've asked, like, a lot.

I think that is good advice, but that parka from eddie bauer should be long enough to do the job if you didn't want something super long. You just don't want something that hits at your waist.

It really wasn't that cold this year anyway. Maybe it was just a mild winter but plenty of people got by just fine without down coats.

If you can afford it, go with KJUS and never look back. When I was in Norway and Switzerland, everyone was wearing it. SOOOOO warm. Best of all, the hood zips all the way up so you look like a mummy. They also have really dope color options:

Any particular reason you are discounting married girls' opinions?

I'm definitely getting something ass-covering, because the worst part about super cold NYC days was the wind cutting through your jeans and leggings and underwear and making your butt super cold ;_;

Yes, I keep it classy.

Nah don't get one that cover's it. I completely disagree. My reasons for disagreeing may be different, but still valid. :lol:

I know there are some pretty pimp kids from my class that live there, but the downsides are that you live 2 blocks from a live-fire zone, and you have to live with UG students, which remind me of the cast from Labrynth or The Dark Crystal.

I take it you don't mean a young Jennifer Connelly?


With the ug students you do get your david bowies and jennifer connellys ocassionally to compliment your cast of loveable muppets.

BTW, sorry to keep pushing my favorite company, but they also have a butt covering model, not as cool in my opinion:

The future tense implies you have chosen Chicago. If this is proved untrue I WILL cry.

Almost back from epic trip. I found the sketchiest gas station/butcher shop/restroom/casino ever outside Durham. No lie.

Yes. I got mine on off season sale with an additional %30 discount and it was still expensive. But, this winter, in NYC, I was sooooo warm. Plus, the zip-up hood was a huge conversation piece.
