I see girls wearing them all the time, especially around campus. Even celebrities wear them. My question is, aren't these parkas made for like really cold weather? There isn't even any snow! I see them being worn on mild days, all bundled up. Can anyone explain this? They are even big in Japan!
Many females lack adequate heating capabilities. When coupled with a male, they will typically rob him of his body heat in a well-rehearsed dance known as "cuddling."
During this intricate act, the female will typically placate or even seduce the male with affection as the energy transfer takes place. The amount of affection is directly related to her heating requirements and the amount of time it takes for her to reach thermostasis. Experienced females can accurately judge the effort needed to keep the male placid so as to ration her own energy and time, so as not move the male to a state of arousal that she may have to fend off. She realizes excessive shutting-down of male advances may limit her access to his energy reserves in the future.
These females you observe likely lack a personal external heat source (male) and also do not see any suitable candidates in their surroundings. Otherwise, their bodies would expend extra energy for heating so as to wear less artificial fur (parkas/coats.) Any female observed to be wearing far less clothing than cold weather dictates can almost assuredly be presumed to have found a suitable heat source and is attempting to lure him into the thermal parasitic relationship.
Lol who knows the most logical explanation is some person saw someone famous or their idol or someone wearing it and her/his friends saw them wearing it and before you know it you got a fad on our hands.
Because they already sold you all that other shit and they need to sell something else to you so it's what is still in stock so it's what's in... Now shut up and buy what we tell you to by like a good Muppet.
certainly looks better than ugg boots. the ugliest fashion trend ever.
Warm parkas are pretty much a winter necessity here.
Part of the reason CG and it's competitors became so popular for women is that they actually have a more flattering cut than traditional parkas. Women actually still have a semblance of a waist in them.
It's a "fashion statement"; supposedly all sheep must own one and be in. Kinda like everything from Marc Jacobs (I see girls with handbags from this "designer" every-fucking-where).
Daft, idiotic sheep wear parkas - especially during the summertime (like wtf!!)
I'm Canadian and as a kid lived close to a university. We always got a kick out of foreign students who, having never experianced snow before, never mind a Canadian winter, would whip out the parkas and balaclavas, gloves and boots in the fall when the weather hits 4c. They have no idea what's coming! 4c and people walk around in a t-shirt. -35 is coming! No Canadian would bother with a parka without snow. That's just silly.
Where I live it gets pretty cold (canada) and I can see why people wear them. Especially in the winter. Though I would find it way too hot to wear it in places that don't get that cold.
But I agree, I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that it's a known brand now and is popular. People like popular things. There's nothing wrong with liking a popular thing, but it's kinda funny seeing so many people wearing the same thing. But I guess they must like them or else they wouldn't wear them?
But to each their own! I like parkas, but I'm not shelling out that kind of money for a jacket like that. Plus it's real fur trim, which makes me sad. I prefer the fake fur.
Those are Canada Goose very expensive. Why it's a fashion statement I will never know. As for warmth I have a parka made by Tough Duck at 1/4-1/3 the price that is just as warm. I read through the comments it seems only 1 other picked up on the moniker Canada Goose.
I live in Denmark so I've worn them in the winter because it's cold as fuck here, I don't think they're pretty or anything they're just comfortable (Not Canada Goose though that shit is all about animal abuse)
