To some it looks like a poncho gone awry.

Don't! Winter in most areas is grey and depressing enough already. Get some colorful clothing that fits your type.

Unfortunately one doesn't have much choice IF doing clothes shopping in autumn/winter in CH.
That's one more reason besides the inflated prices not to shop here.

Hey people!

I was wondering...what stuff should I necessairely buy to get well prepared for the winter?

I mean..think about it...I have no idea how things will be when starts beeing really cold and stuff...
Do I need special boots? Shoes, Gloves...socks maybe?
Do I need to change the tires of my bike? Do I need new lights?

Do I need new running shoes? (this is important)




What are the things I should know and expected from the winter...I am getting pretty scared LOL...because I don't think is soooo cold...but I see people walking in the streets like they live in Alaska! And the heaters are soooo MODE MAX already in the stores. lol !

In Brazil we don't have long or strong Winter...so we don't even get heaters...so this is fu**** up my skin and hair lol... !

Re: How to prepare for the winter!

Boots with warm socks, keep them shined and presentable. A decent pair of non faded jeans. Dress shirt tucked in or out to your preference. Overcoat or thigh long jacket, I recommend Express' winter jackets though they are a bit pricey but very well made for the middle class man. Spike the front of your hair and Viola! Instant comfortable winter wear while being apart of the fashion status quo.

Re: How to prepare for the winter!

When I was living in Höngg, I found the ice with the steep slopes felt very dangerous. I would recommend some ice grippers for your shoes.

That's a matter of taste. It all depends on purpose (e.g. outdoor getaway versus lad at the Sunday church ceremony) and stylish matching colours like those ones below

There is a big difference between sandals and darker socks:


And there is a flipping difference when somebody wears white socks, pants and sandals:
No. There isn't.

Re: How to prepare for the winter!

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned putting winter tyres on your bike

I wanted to reply earlier but my keyboard was frozen and the gangrene took longer to improve than I'd thought.

Sorry about the language
