Moose Knuckle Jackets
The winter jacket war continues in Toronto, between the Canada Goosers, the Moose Knucklers, and the endless number of jacket preferences in the city. Our clear winner is Moose Knuckles – it’s warm, down filled, fitted to his proportions, and has a sweet silver logo on the side (that beats a 25 cent patch any day). Read more about them here. Stand out from the crowd of geese and let his Moose Knuckle out!

I remember back in the spring, Melissa was raving about this new line she had ordered in for the Fall/Winter called Marshall Artist. Catchy name, I know. Reasonably priced, their workwear style pieces range from shirts and cardigans to sweaters and jackets. Expect lots of plaid, earth tones, and fine detailing. It’s also a layerer’s wet dream. Read more about them here and here. Cardigans and sweaters are $110 to $125, jackets are $195 to $295.

Paul Smith’s Berling
The faded brown coloring on this is vintage inspired yet very current. The frame shape is modern yet incorporates the key hole bridge that has been around forever. In short this shade is a mix of old and new making it a great wear for cross generations of people.

Olympus PEN E-PL1
Available at The Source and other major electronics retailers
If you’ve wondered which camera we’ve been using to take shots of the clothes for the past few months, you’re looking right at it. The Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a 12-megapixel digital SLR camera with detachable lenses. It’s slimmer than your average DSLR because it’s mirror-less, and is capable of taking high definition video. We even used it to film our Ask a Stylist segments. If you’re looking for a flawless, techie gift, this is the one.
The Olympus E-PL1 12.3MP digital camera gives you the power of a DSLR and the simplicity of a point-and-shoot. Stylishly-designed, this compact digital camera lets you toggle back and forth between capturing stills and taking video all with one finger. Olympus has image stabilization built right into the body of this digital camera so any of the interchangeable lenses will deliver blur-free images. iAuto mode automatically identifies what you’re shooting and adjusts settings for you to capture the best result depending on the situation.
Too much out of your price range? We saw this Digital Mix Master iPod Dock that looks like a 1980’s boombox for $69 (regular $119). Hot deal.
