Michael's Himalaya Coats & Jackets by safunnell on 10 November 2004 2:30pm
 
Hello,

Apologies if this has been covered by a previous topic (48 pages is too far to backtrack!), but I rather like the look of the coats Michael wears in the new Himalaya series.

A 3/4 length navy blue raincoat, and short navy blue 'bomber' type jacket. Does anyone know what make these are? They're very smart and I wouldn't mind nabbing them for myself.

Regards, Stephen.

Sheesh, don't get me interested in his clothing as well!

(Sorry Stephen. Read my "The bag Michael uses" thread and it'll all become clear!)

North Face made the black puffa jacket he wore in the colder regions and the black jacket he wore in the last episode, so it might be a good place to start.

Have we nailed the makers of the ubiquitous blue shirts yet? I assume they're not super-hard-wearing David Attenborough hand-me-downs!!

Oh, this thread sounds expensive! :(

Don't tell! The himalayas will be flooded with MP look alikes ;-)

I assume his Oxford style shirts are probably Gap or Gant, something like that. But the coats I refer to are the navy blue 'smart' ones, rather than the technical mountain stuff. I assume they're probably Zegna or Armani, just wondered if anybody had any more info.

I should imagine 'Gap' is the last place he will shop, what with its sweatshops and exploitation of third-world people.

If anyone is silly enough, like me, I grant you, to be doing A level RE, then you will understand what i shall say. If you dont, just humour me, lol!
In the ethics section, we're doing business ethics and consumerism, and i have to say where MP goes, what he does and what he appears to believe in make me think of him in group disscusions. He is one of a dwindling number of people who are public figures who are "agreeing" with rather than challenging the virtuous ways of trade and approches to business globally. So, good on him for sticking to his morals rather than being like many companies and generally being corrupt. I would rather use Michael as a "good" example in my essays rather than the people we're told to use like Anita Roddick, no offense!, but i think the teacher may become a bit suspitious!!
sorry to go off on a tangent, but TwoSheds comment just reminded me...... i have a strange brain!!
love eloise xx

In the Sahara book he clearly refers to his Gap Oxfords so guess that answers that
