HARRY'S OUTERWEAR GUIDE FW18 - HIGH ACHIEVER LOOK BOOK
Our thanks to NHL star Max Domi for modelling some of our more technical coats. Mr. Domi won gold with Team Canada at the 2015 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships and was named the tournament’s Best Forward. Now aged 23, he plays for the Montreal Canadiens. His success is even more remarkable because he has lived with type 1 diabetes since the age of 12. “Thanks to my family, my health-care professionals and the right tools,” he says, “I have never let diabetes stand in the way of crushing my goals.” In gratitude for Mr. Domi’s appearance in our pages, Harry Rosen is making a donation in his name to JDRF, a research foundation focused on type 1 diabetes.
With giant patch pockets, quilting like the Michelin Man and exaggerated Velcro closures in red, white and blue, Moncler’s latest hip-length jacket is unlike any other. Made of a dove-grey, matte-finish nylon, it has a glossy nylon hood concealed behind a zip in the collar.
Allterrain is run by Japanese partners as a brand of the great French skiwear company, Descente. Part of its signature is the use of Mizusawa Down – the finest, loftiest duck and goose down you can find – which gives this debonair jacket enough insulation to protect against anything a Canadian winter can bring. Flexible, wearable and supremely comfortable.
Testing its lightly down-filled Typhoon parka on the company yacht, Paul & Shark proved its windproof and waterproof qualities. Thanks to heat-taped seams and an ultra-soft membrane, every square centimetre of the treated nylon fabric can withstand a 20-metre column of water. Paul & Shark jacket available online soon.
The Ventoux Parka (TEI4) delivers the most warmth of any Canada Goose parka. The plush nylon shell makes it lightweight for travel while a removable hood and backpack straps further its functionality. Outsized double-entry front pockets and fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets are also useful features.
