Any of my field / derby boots. I have naturally warm feet so I don't own any lined boots as they quickly become too warm to wear when I transition indoors. There is a pair of shearling lined Carlos Santos boots that is tempting me, though.

The winter days that have me wishing for a parka aren't necessarily those where the temperature is at its absolute lowest - but where the wind is at is highest - particularly when combined with snow and ice pellets. NOTHING beats a deep fur-trimmed hood on days like that - particularly when I am immobile and exposed on a wind-swept train platform.
Out of continued curiosity, do you not have a deep rooted Canadian yearning for a Canada Goose parka? I figured they are basically standard issue up there. ;)

For the past couple years I've considered a pair of shearling lined boots. I don't know when I would wear them but, nevertheless, the heart wants what the heart wants I suppose.

If I lived in Ottawa or Montreal I'd look into Canada Goose - because that is what you really need when the temperature plummets. But Toronto / Oakville are just that much further south that the winters are noticeably milder.

My BB pea coat, over 20 years old, and still fantastic. Warm, stylish, ut never goes out of style. Quilted lining too. Made in USA, paid about $250 for it in 1997-98. Worth every penny!

A great looking coat and as you indicated, in my wardrobe, the older and more worn a garment or pair of shoe/boots become, the greater their value in my eyes! Just thinking. ;)

My peacoat, which I love, is old as it is a 1970 USN peacoat formerly owned by my brother-in law who was briefly in the navy.

I'm going to have my bottom-of-the-calf Balmacaan shortened. It sure looks cool, but is wildly impractical. Should hit higher up on the calf when I get it back.

Forget sitting down or kneeling slightly if you don't want to attract crud from the ground.

Going to use that chopped fabric to add a throat latch.
