When the temps dip so low that the tears you're crying from the cold freeze on your eyelashes, you know there's no kidding around with fancy dusters or "lined" jackets. As a hardy, cold-dwelling group ourself, we know the importance of thick, no-bull outerwear. And if after looking at the prices on the coats, your eyeballs are tearing up for another reason, remember that if there's one item worth splurging on, it's a quality winter coat that won't ever need replacing. So, if you consider yourself the Ernestine Shackleton of your 'hood, check out these parkas and launch your own sub-zero expedition.
