    I currently wear:

    Arcteryx Atom LT - my go-to everyday technical puffer jacket if I'm casual
    Ben Sherman Peacoat w/ quilted lining if it's colder than usual

    This year I'm looking to pick up an overcoat, having a tough time deciding between:

    Spier Mackay or other brand wool/cashmere blend overcoat (I tried the JCrew one and it was also pretty good)
    Theory double-faced cashmere coat that I got at a discount but am concerned it will wear out quickly

    finally put my J crew Sussex to a bit of a test this weekend. Nothing crazy with low temps int he 40s but wore it all weekend out walking Greenville, SC and it was comfortable enough in the warmer times and kept me toasty when the sun went down and wind picked up.

    I'm assuming that's 3 degrees Celsius? Because 3 degrees Fahrenheit is well below freezing. If it is indeed 3 degrees Celsius that's astonishingly wimpy for a down coat or jacket. They're usually good for deep freeze temps.

    not necessarily. Especially not these days. I mean, there are plenty that are, but you absolutely cant expect that from a down puffer just because its a down puffer. They have become somewhat a fashion piece so light puffer that only goes to 3 Celsius for comfort isnt a huge shock to me. the trend towards lightweight packable ones mean they are not meant to be used standalone. A base layer, at least one shirt, and a fleece are usually under a puffer for a lot of todays hikers. And a rain shell can go over all of that.

    how many celciums to the fortnight is it again? I think it's gotta be at least 16 rods to the furlong, and the you go furlong to the stone, and then to the Farenhaught.

    So what like, 170 Degrees?

    You forgot to convert twelve pence to the shilling and twenty shillings to the pound.

    "Twoneys"? Please tell me that double-barrelled currency misnomer is deliberate (yes, I get the conversion joke of the prior comments but all the other unit names were correct).
