I'm a man, and want to know if people recommend getting a fur coat. I live in Philadelphia, not Alaska. I thought Alaskans might be good to ask for advice.
It's not easy for me to get warm in the winter. I have a L.L. Bean Baxter State parka. It's their warmest coat. It doesn't keep me as warm as I'd like when it gets to around 30 degrees, maybe when it's even less cold than that.
I have heard that fur is the warmest kind of coat, but I rarely see or hear of anyone wearing it. I wonder if it would be worth it for me to buy, and maybe be comfortable in winter for a change. I don't know if I'd spend hundreds on a coat though.
Perhaps there are cheaper ways to be warm. I'd love to hear suggestions.
