The Emperor's New Clothes
Shopping for a cold weather trip (Iceland in October) is infinitely more challenging than a trip to the tropics. I'm not the most warm-blooded of creatures so I'll be packing wool, and plenty of it. That Land's End sweater is nice and oily, good for the damp. The Italian Merino (in a cardigan!) should suffice in more civilized situations, while the raglan from L.L. Bean (Shetland wool) would be just right for whiling away a few hours in a cozy pub.
Did someone say "Gap?"
