Would be a help if I knew the age of your son. Ours would kill me for giving them this hat BUT it might be what your looking for.

Fashion? Trends?

I'm pretty sure you've got the wrong forum.

(I posted this on the old site - before I knew the new site here was active     ;D )

Hi Brandon01,

Welcome to the best winter trekking forum on the Web.  We are very close to launching our full website (within the week I hope), which will have a detailed section on winter clothing.  It will be all about functional and very cool, ...er..warm.... and breathable winter trekking, "fashion" and definitely not urban!.   If you search through the "Trip Report" forums on this site, you will see some gear in action.   Modern polyester wicking long underwear, heavy wool pants, fleece tops and tight weave wool tops without any nylon shell, allow for venting of steam.   The best outer shells are more dense wool, or cotton anoraks which you can buy from Empire Canvas, army surplus, or make your own, but its hard to find the light tight weave fabric.  Hats are loose fitting toques often doubled up, or with balaclava underneath, or mad trapper style fur hats. 

Insulated parkas with nylon and gortex shells or linings are good for the city, and sitting around an ice fishing hole, but you will cook when trekking in the bush.  Use breathable layers and you will be very trekking fashionable!     (And will likely look "urban ugly", but we like that here!   :D )

The more we respect them, the more we cherish them, the more we nurture and take care of them. That is the underlying principle of Bushcraft.

Lastest fashion trend........

Now here is a model coming down the runway
look at the nice Codet wool pants oh and look there he/she is wearing a beautiful wool shirt with a fur trimmed anorak over top and the mad trapper hat is a nice finishing touch!!!

Ok kidding aside I have to think back to a old trapper that lived near me when I was a wee little lad. He always said(in regards to clothing) Your not here to make a fashion statement you here to work and survive the cold. 
As Hoop said so many cloths that are now produced just don't work for the tough conditions of winter camps. It takes a bit of looking around but you can find items that people here talk about (anorak wool pants ect) and yes some of it is pricey , hmm much like a lot of "modern" clothing but it is worth the money.  Read trip reports talk to fellow members here and do not be afraid to ask questions.

Har,

I found this thread on a whimsical search of 'Fashion'.

My stated belief is that the day I see our clothes in fashion magazines because they look 'cool', I'm taking a bath with my toaster.

Kevin,

Put that toaster down and get away from the tub!

Current outdoor fashion is derived from mountaineering. Mountaineering had Sir Edmund Hillary on Everest followed by many other mountaineering exploits that made it a cutting edge extreme activity that people wanted to associate with. It seems that there needs to be an element of "extreme" or competition (or both) for it to be something people want to associate with by copying the clothing.

Walking through the snow covered forest and relaxing in a heated tent don't have those elements, so I don't think we have anything to worry about.

Mukluk trend.

It already happened once. If I see 'Anorak's Hot This Summer" I'll know to worry.

You mean to tell me I have been busting my butt to be the "Empire fashion plate/trend-setter" all winter for no good reason? ??? I'm crushed. I'm wounded. I'm lost.  :'(

That being said, remember the "mountain parka"? I still have and wear mine!

New trends-Eddie Bauer is bringing out a line of "real" outdoor gear after years of being the Gap of outdoor clothing.  Ed Viesturs and Peter Whitaker are part of the design team so we'll see what they think people will buy.

I think TNF (The North Face) is largely responsible for the "outdoor clothes as a fashion statement" trend.  Believe it or not, there is a huge TNF retail store in Beverly Hills on Beverly Drive, a couple of blocks from the famous Rodeo Drive.  I've been in it a couple of times.

No no no,

TNF has the most brilliant marketing strategy in history. Their goal is to place one dealer within 1 statute mile of any college campus.

Kevin- who has a Holubar jacket from his uncle. I've been watching that long.
