This Polar Vortex is nothing to mess with. Now is the time of year when when winter’s claws begin to sink deep below the skin, gripping our bones with the kind of chill we won’t be able to shake till April. Thankfully, advances in heated clothing technology have made it easier to get the gear we need to fight that chill. The Gobi Heat Nomad 5 Zone jacket sounds exactly like the right kind of weapon.
Formerly known as Dragon Heatwear, Gobi Heat is a Utah-based heated apparel company with products that include heated jackets, hoodies, pants, gloves, and socks. With 18 different heated apparel products, Gobi is quickly becoming a leader in the heated apparel industry.
The hooded Nomad is a comfortable puffer made of wind- and water-resistant polyester and a filled with cruelty-free filling. Light and packable, it has five heat zones fired by carbon-fiber heating elements: one on each upper breast, one on each side of the belly, and a large one in the back. The two outer zip pockets are ideally placed over the lower heating elements, so your hands get some love, too. This time of year, that’s a godsend.
The one-touch controller has three heat settings: Low, Medium, and High, giving you full control over your body temperature. And the bright, easy-to-spot LED indicator makes it a cinch to know exactly where you’re at. The ultra-slim 6700 mAh/7.4 volt battery pack is about the size of a smart phone and slides into an inner pocket gives up to 10 hours of battery life without the additional bulk of other heated apparel batteries we’ve seen.
For now, the Nomad comes only in Onyx, er, black. But it’s available in sizes from Small to XXL, which is great. It’s got YKK zippers and is machine washable. The only caveat is that it fits snug and runs a bit small overall, so “big and tall” guys may want to size up. But at least you won’t need to throw a bunch of layers under it before you head out.
Denim may be as reliable as death and taxes, but that doesn’t mean you should keep wearing the same old jeans. The world’s most sought after brands continue to push the envelope by showcasing new cuts, colors, and styles that are refreshing the standards. And it’s not just jeans.
This combo—a Polo Ralph Lauren Chambray Button-Down Shirt and the DSquared2 Dan Sherpa-Lined Jacket—exemplifies denim’s range. Throw in a pair of Ray-Bans and something old is new again.
If you’re looking for a new coat to stay warm and ready to conquer the trails during your cold-weather hikes, we found the perfect jacket to kick your adventures into overdrive: the Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket.
The Backcountry-exclusive style is made with a combination of 850-fill goose down and strategically placed Coreloft insulation (read: there’s practically no way you can get cold while wearing this jacket). It’s light and durable too, so it won’t weigh you down.
The one feature that makes this outerwear piece special: its adjustable, insulated hood. While you never know what Mother Nature will bring your way, this hood protects your head from wind and cold to allow you to power through your hike. The slim fit will also ensure you won’t look like a giant marshmallow, unlike other puffy coats out there. Available in 13 colors ranging from neutral to vibrant shades, you can find the shade that works best for you and your wardrobe.
Ready to add an ultra-warm jacket to your outerwear collection? This Backcountry find has hit the sale rack at 30 percent off. You can pick up the Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket for $ 265.30, a major dip from its original $ 379 price tag.

Rolling out a new product, especially one that takes proof of an entirely new concept to the masses, is never going to be without its hiccups â and thatâs a lesson John McCarthy has been learning over the past week. McCarthy is the head of product for Googleâs Jacquard initiative, which introduced a much-touted $ 350 smart jacket with Leviâs in late September, and heâs heard one piece of feedback over and over since the launch: a complaint that you canât wash the jacket too many times before it goes off kilter. (The care guidelines posted on Jacquardâs official site read: âthe jacket is designed to withstand up to 10 washes â¦ but your experience may vary by usage and wash conditions.â)

How smart was Albert Einstein? One of the first things he purchased after coming to the United States in 1933 was an unlined brown leather jacket by Leviâs. A colleague at Princeton University once wrote that it âsolved [his] coat problem for years.â Einstein wore it so often while enjoying a pipe of tobacco that when Christieâs auction house sold it in July 2016, curators noted that it still smelled like smoke. Leviâs Vintage Clothing bought the jacket, and its designers will release a limited edition of 500 replicas on February 19. Each one comes with a bottle of fragrance by D.S. & Durga that blends the smells of pipe tobacco, papyrus manuscript, and vintage leather. Will wearing it make you think like a genius? Thatâs relative.

Getting dressed can be a chore — especially right now, when you have to contend with early fall’s noncommittal temperature scheme and the possibility that, come day’s end, you might have sweat straight through whatever you put on that morning.
So it’s with just the tiniest amount of irony that a garment called the chore coat (which you’ll also find under the monikers chore jacket, barn

SAND STORM: French stylist, designer and collector Olivier Châtenet is hoping to share his passion for vintage fashion with the world. He has assembled around 15 looks incorporating the famous YSL saharienne, or safari jacket, from 1969 to around 1975. They will be on display at the Salon du Vintage, a vintage fair held on Oct. 17 and 18 at the Carreau du Temple in Paris.
“[The sarahienne] had various variations including trench coat, dress, jumpsuit, with lacing, and a palette of sandy tones,”Châtenet explained. “The first one was worn by Veruschka in Vogue Paris in 1968. Then, it was part of the collection in 1969.”
Considered a specialist on Yves Saint Laurent, Châtenet recently worked as a consultant on Bertrand Bonello’s “Saint Laurent” biopic. He owns more than 3,000 pieces from Yves Saint Laurent. “I stopped counting after 3,200,” he said with a laugh.

Thirty years after it’s debut, The North Face has reissued its original Mountain Jacket, adding style to its reliable function.
“I’ve always been a super—it sounds terrible, but—a super aesthetically inclined, or aesthetically driven person,” says Jeff Johnson, the creative director of the recently launched outerwear label The Arrivals, “always obsessing over either the way that things look or the way that things are put together.” And while that statement was issued in tones of regret, that’s not a bad thing for a man in his line of work; whether that was in his previous field (architecture, designing everything from “an airport or a museum to single family homes and furniture” for a Amsterdam-based firm) or his current one, creating a small clutch of innately covetable and entirely chic outerwear—think ribbed-sleeve cropped leather jackets with plush rabbit collars, oversize wool cocoon coats, durable twill parkas, and zippy, weatherproof Italian twill ponchos. As for whether Johnson truly thinks his discerning eye is doing him a disservice, consider the Vitruvius quote emblazoned across the Our Story section of The Arrivals’ website: “Nothing requires the architect’s care more than the due proportions of design.”
True to form, Johnson found the jump from creating buildings to creating sleek, androgynously minded toppers was not so much of a leap as one might think. (Though he did initially show up at a pattern-maker’s office with a series of blueprints and 3-D models for coats, rather than sketches.) “I was very lucky to find myself in an architecture practice that was so cross-disciplinary, that touched on so many different elements of design,” Johnson says, “It was such a nice place to realize the underlying principles of making good design better . . . it’s the very simple things that you’re taught: What is the starting function, what is the material that you’re going to work with, what is the silhouette, what is the construction going to take, what are the elements involved, what is the hardware like. Really, those elements transcend between any designing, it’s how we approach everything we do, whether that’s web design, the packaging, the product.”
And what of the product? The line contains both men and women’s collections mostly designed and manufactured in New York’s garment district and born of the desire for high-quality leather jackets without the $ 2,000-and-up price tag (as well as the related fiscal hangover). Johnson was approached with the idea for an e-commerce site late in 2013 by his friend and serial tech-investor Kal Vepuri, whose previous dalliances into the world of e-commerce include the riotously successful Warby Parker, Harry’s Shaving, and Reformation, among dozens of other businesses. Between Alexander Wang and Barney’s, H&M, and Zara, “where is that opportunity in the middle to buy a beautiful product with a story, made here in New York by like-minded young creatives who weren’t necessarily on paper the best people to do it, but are passionate and want to create a very impressive product?” asks Johnson. Well, they made one. Just by “focusing on what those classic items are that everyone wants in their closet, to let someone have that same feeling of putting on a leather jacket or that perfect oversize coat or parka or whatever it is and not feel terrible when you see the price tag.” And you won’t: The moto-style leather jacket rings in at $ 685, a warm wool wrapper, $ 385, with future collections held open for some currently-under-wraps ideas for expansion, both into lighter toppers for the warmer months and, possibly, accessories. The design aesthetic is very true to Johnson’s background: clean, Scandinavian-inspired lines that would look as good crossing one of Copenhagen’s canals as New York’s Canal Street—and as you might now have come to expect, you’ll want to live in them.

For most magicians, getting out of a straight jacket marks a right of passage. But for one Toronto trickster, remaining in one for 14 days could be his career-defining moment.
On Tuesday, Mark Correia, 18, got strapped into a straight jacket on the set of Global News’ “The Morning Show,” and plans on remaining in the contraption for two full weeks before attempting his escape. Correia, a diehard Michael J. Fox fan, decided to spend time in the confining piece of clothing in order to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease — the neurodegenerative disorder his favorite actor was diagnosed with in 1991.
“The strait jacket is a great metaphor,” Correia told the Canadian Press.
In the U.S., 60,000 people will be diagnosed with the disease this year alone. Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s, a progressive disorder that affects vital neurons in the brain, leaving people unable to control movement normally, according to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
Though he’s severely restricted, Correia is working on devising ways to still perform his day-to-day tasks — including cooking and playing video games — and he is documenting his every move, according to the Canadian Press. The one thing he said he can’t pull off, though, is taking a bath.
The determined magician has set a goal of raising $ 25,000 for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and has already raised nearly $ 8,000.
Correia hopes his endeavor will bring the community closer to finding a cure.
“Wouldn’t it be incredible if we were one step closer to escaping Parkinson’s?” he said in his video explaining his mission.
Yes, it certainly would be.
