I'm going to be relocating to a cold, dark place for some time. Where do I get a winter coat on this tropical island? It needs to be LEGIT.

how cold are we talking?

if it's pacific northwest cold you might be able to find decent coats at the gap or banana republic or an outlet store.

but if it's midwest/northeast cold you might be able to find an N3B extreme cold weather parka at a surplus store.

I remember walking into Neiman Marcus soon after they opened, and seeing a wide range of thick leather jackets and trenchcoats. Presumably they were catering to their Japanese clientele. That, or their merchandise buyer was just really dumb. You might still be able to find something there, if you need to try the stuff on and if you're willing to spend $$$$.
