Hey Guys,

I have lived in Phoenix most of my life. I am moving to Pittsburgh in January for grad school. I've never lived in a place where it snows.

The university requires business casual for most days. I have lots of chinos, a few dress trousers, OCBDs, dress shirts, 2 blazers, merino sweaters, etc. My questions revolve mostly around winter outerwear and footwear.

1. What coats do I need for school and casual? For school I have a heavier navy car coat and a charcoal pea coat. For casual I have an olive field coat and lightweight navy bomber. Will I need a down parka?

2. What footwear do I need for school and casual? For school I have some wingtip boots, dressier chukkas, longwings, double monks, black oxfords. For casual I have clark db and thursday boot captains. Do I need proper insulated snow boots?

3. Any other tips for dressing well and staying warm in cold weather?

Thank you for any advice my cold weather brothers can offer!
